Why give up a draft pick for a guy who is almost certainly going to get cut? Also, make the Seahawks pay his salary (or at least eat the guaranteed part). Don't trade for his deal. Wait for the cut, and then sign him for pennies on the dollar.

Miami low-balled him, didn't even offer him starter money


I flame on Jeff Ireland, but in fairness, it doesn't seem like Flynn is starter material. So that seems like a smart move by Ireland for once. Seattle has one of the most expensive backups in the league.

Look at how his contract works.

It was a 3 year max $26 million, with $10 million guaranteed. $6 million signing bonus & $2 million base salary for 2012. That leaves $2 million more in guarantee money for 2013, his 2013 salary is $5.25 million. 2014 salary is $6.25 million.

So for next year it will cost Seattle $2 million no matter what, the extra cost is $3.25 million. What is that value of Flynn at $3.25 million?

Better yet, how stupid is Flynn for not going to Miami?


Quite the opposite.

Miami offered him substantially less money, and now we're seeing that this was clearly a good decision to take more guaranteed money at that stage of his career.

Ireland has done a good job as GM. He took too much blame for Parcells decisions and things out of his control.

ou didnt really think Pete Carroll was going to let an LSU boy lead his offense, did you?




I love how LSU fans actually believe a very rich and successful man gives two fricks or even knows/cares that Flynn is from LSU. It doesn't even cross his fricking mind.

None he gets cut

quote:

Flynn received a signing bonus of $6 million and a guaranteed base salary of $2 million in 2012. While not peanuts, it’s less than 50 percent of the top of the market.

Things get interesting in 2013, when Flynn has another fully guaranteed $2 million but a non-guaranteed total salary of $5.25 million.

Still, it’s not an excessive amount to give to a backup, especially since the starter is, by rule, locked in to his rookie contract for at least three full seasons. Wilson received a signing bonus of only $619,472, not much more than 10 percent of Flynn’s signing bonus. And Wilson earn base salaries of $390,000, $526,217, and $662,434 over the next three seasons.

That’s a total of $2.198 million for three years — three years! — as a starter. And Wilson can’t ask for more until after the 2014 season because the Seahawks can’t give him more.
