I would have gone for Foles if I was Elway. Foles would cost more but he would last longer.

Throwing all the chips in with Jackson might not be the best strategy either teams seem to figure out to play against running qbs a lot faster than pocket passers.

Flacco is terrible though. Going with Jackson, who might be good, rather than Flacco, who is awful, is a no brainer.

It looks like we will never know as they are not allowed to say. The next question to answer is will he get back into the NFL?

^^^^ That league sold itself to the owner of Carolina's NHL team this weekend for $250m - and missed paying it's players for Week 1 games. He knew what he was doing asking for $20m

In baseball news - now where does Harper fall?

BREAKING: Manny Machado has agreed to terms on a deal with the Padres. According to a league source, itís for 10 years and $300 million - the biggest free-agent contract in the history of American sports.

Unreal that he's getting any money for not being good enough to start at a team.

His actions made him toxic. If I acted the c*** at work I don't expect that my employers would want keep me and I wouldn't expect to get a huge payoff from other companies who refused to hire me because of my reputation.

There is only one reason they are giving him money and it's not for his skills.

At last something I can agree with you on. They're giving him this money because all the owners colluded against him and refused to give him a job. They have admitted they were wrong by paying him. It's crystal clear.

As for his skills - he is better than 6-10 starting QB's in the league and all but 2 or 3 of the backups. That is abundantly clear to anyone who is objective and capable of evaluating the position. Strong word he's going to sign with Carolina (would be a very similar and capable replacement for Cam) or the Patriots.

I don't think we are in agreement here Seanie

He's getting a payoff just to shut him up and make him go away. His continual presence around the NFL conversations has hit their audience numbers and sponsorship as well as the now standard awkwardness of the national anthem is his disgusting legacy.

He was found out as a player and benched. Last act was to pass for 4 YARDS in 3 Quarters in a loss to the bears.
That's not a backup you want and no club is going to touch him. Stick to race baiting and making cash.
