No decent team would want him, unless you really believe he has magical powers.


no I don't believe in witchcraft. maybe there are just players that are better than he is in free agency that are a dime a dozen :shrug:


Take the barely over .500 winning percentage out of it. Would you want a QB with a career 47.9% completion percentage?

I was just talking to my friend(O's, Skins, Wizards fan) about how I can enjoy the playoffs more if the Pens are eliminated and he responded "Thats why I enjoy the NFL and NBA playoffs so much". Lulz.

So, titus young gets arrested early Sunday morning for making an illegal u-turn and DUI. He then gets arrested again Sunday afternoon for trying to climb the fence of the impound yard. To steal his Mustang back?
I think its safe to say his NFL career is over. Especially after the Detroit situation. Another wasted golden opportunity.

Just looked, 0 ties to the area

From LA. The closest he was ever recruited to Pittsburgh is Boise State

Closest he ever played to Pittsburgh was 1 game at Bowling Green in 2009
In NFL 1 game against Philly

Doesn't even look like he's ever been to the 412 :( A shame, had Steeler written all over him besides that

I like how the article says he was brought in to replace Ray Lewis and lists his criminal problems. Seems like he was at least half way there.

To be fair, shooting(not sure if there was a fatality involved) is pretty short of stabbing someone to death.

Can someone explain the NFL salary cap to me? How are cap hits calculated?

How much time do you have? (kind of not joking)


Basically it's a combination of the base salary for that season and any signing bonus prorated over the term of the deal. This is why you see so many deals restructured at the end or players cut before those last couple years.

NFL can back load contracts and they will but make up for it by signing bonuses. This is also key for players because contracts aren't guaranteed but signing bonus are.


Example:

Steelers sign Titus Young to a 5 year 25 million dollar deal with the base salary being 2, 2, 5, 10, 6 They also give him a 10 million dollar signing bonus paid up front but prorate it over the 5 years of the contract.

In Year 1, his hit against the cap is 4 million (2 base, 2 signing bonus) even though Steelers are paying him 12 million.
Year 2, the cap is still at 4
Year 3: 7
Year 4: 12
Year 5: 8

Now. Let's say after year 2, Steelers say we're done with this guy.

If they cut him before June 1, the hit cap will be 6 million (remaining part of signing bonus), if he is cut after June 1, his hit is 2 and then 4


This is a very simple example and can get much more complicated very quickly.

I think I got it right.

I don't know the numbers but it is all too common for teams to be carrying cap hits for players who aren't on the team.

A new twist under the new CBA (and I don't remember how it all works) but if a team is say 10 million under the cap in 2013, they can apply that cap forward and in 2014 they could be 10 million over. Tampa Bay took advantage of this.

That makes sense. I was reading the article on Sam Bradford on ESPN and saw the cap hits and then could not figure out how it was working out. Didn't realize the signing bonus part. So when someone talks about guaranteed money, is that just the signing bonus or are they naming part of the yearly salary guaranteed?

The only part guaranteed is signing bonus and that current year's salary (I think this is the June 1 benchmark that is important when it comes to cutting players)

This is why most contracts are back loaded and come with huge signing bonuses. (Players get the bonus here and now knowing the risk they might not get a bulk of the base salary while teams can cut and be off the hook for those large bases later)

3. Darren Sproles
4. Reggie Bush
5. Hakeem Nicks
6. Antonio Brown
7. Fred Jackson
