Kellen Winslow-TE- Buccaneers   Apr. 13 - 10:20 am et
   
      
Kellen Winslow's new contract with the Bucs is guaranteed for only two years.
Though it was billed as the largest contract ever for a tight end, Winslow is only set to earn $1.3M more over the next two years than his existing contract. He's scheduled to make $8.2M in year three of the deal, but it's only guaranteed for injury. Winslow would earn $20.1M in the first three years as opposed to Dallas Clark's $27.5M.

A usual it seems recently, a somewhat large contingent of Buc fans just overreacted too quickly and didn't let the entire story come out before throwing Winslow, Dominik, and Co. under the bus for the deal.

The media outlets had alot to do with this one. Everywhere  you looked they were slamming this deal.

It surely seems that Mark Dominik is being shrewd with his available cap room and structuring contracts to where the team can try and squeeze the most production out of the talent on the field with the least amount of impact on the salary cap in future years

In Football, RESPECT is never given freely by your opponent. It must be TAKEN from them...VIOLENTLY

Great players cost a lot of money but help win games. High-priced players - a byproduct of poorly run front offices with bad scouting departments - only cost a lot of money.

Here's the full version:

Quote from: Peter King
I think the real story of the Kellen Winslow contract is it is hardly the biggest contract ever for a tight end, as was advertised. Winslow will earn $11.8 million guaranteed his first two years of the six-year deal, but he was already on course to earn $10.5 million in the next two years of his existing contract. In year three with Tampa Bay, Winslow is to earn $8.2 million, and the year is guaranteed for injury only. If Winslow's performance in year two is mediocre, the Bucs can cut him without paying him another dime.

But let's say he makes all of what he's supposed to make in the first three years of his deal. Winslow would make $20.1 million. In the first three years of Colts tight end Dallas Clark's deal, Clark makes $27.5 million. For my blood, the Bucs have too much guaranteed money in the deal for a guy who's been hurt so much. But after paying second- and fifth-round picks for him, they also had to justify it with some new money in a contract.

FRG is the most logical poster on this board.  You guys just don\'t like where the logical conclusions take you.

Well if the guy doesnt get hurt and plays the way he knows how to play he will be a steal for 20.1 million.

Just like some people would have went CRAZY if we gave Haynesowrth 90 Mil...They see that number and think its all guarenteed. When in all actuality its backloaded and filled with clauses and bonuses.

He gets his money from the signing bonus and he wont see that 90 mil because he will be cut or restructured by year 3

I don't know why they even bother announcing contract terms for NFL players.  They're pretty meaningless.

Agents see a reason.
