In response to TFB12's comment:
Rusty, I am asking a serious question here.....
According to the contract graphic I posted for Arrington's contract I show If they cut him after 2015 cap hit would have been $10.875 million. Wouldn't that be an average of $3.625 million per year as a cap hit? Oh, plus the dead money of $1.625 for 2016 = $12.5 cap hit for 3 years, an average of $4.167 average for 3 years?
And you are saying this....
In response to RidingWithTheKingII's comment:
7.5 guaranteed is even better than the 8.25 originally reported. Note how low the dead money is if cut after the 2015 season. Not a coincidence. This is essentially a 3 year deal guaranteed at around 2.75 per on average. Arrington might be carrying around 2 rings by 2016 and seen as a bargain in the nickel even then. It's not like's old.
We have two different averages here if they would cut Arrington after 2012. I might be like a 5th grader reading this contract stuff so can you please explain to me how my numbers are incorrect. Ours are different by a lot.
I took his cap hit of 2013, 2014 and 2015 = $10.875 million, if they cut him after 2015, then they have to account for the dead money of 2016 of $1.625 million which totals $12.5 An average of $4.167 million per year. You said it would be 3 years at $2.75 million average. What am I doing wrong here? Why are you saying this is essentially a 3 year deal guaranteed at around $2.75 million? Wouldn't he receive $10.875 million (ave of $3.625 mill) for 2013-2015 and then the Pats be charged a cap hit for 2016 of $1.625 mill, making a total of $12.5 mill, average of $4.167 million per year?
TFB, you are 1000% correct with your numbers.
It is what I posted last week when I said Arringtons AAV w/b approx $4.2m, and Rusty argued with me, called me names and posted on every thread he hijacked that he bludgeoned me.
It is also what I posted yestday, when he called me "so dumb that it is comical".
Bottom line, Arringtons numbers are kind of high, makes me wonder why. I found his and Hooma's numbers really out of the norm for the Pats.
Second bottom line, as I have been saying right along, Rusty has zero understanding of contracts in he NFL, but thinks if he calls someone names, bad mouths them on every thread he hijacks, that it makes him look smart. What a small person.
