I will miss the giraffe if that happens
$5M should get you a back-up QB, a nickle corner, and a new pair of Jordan's, and possibly a broken iphone.
Most back-up QB's are getting less than $1M
That's what I thought. Fitz is good but not that good. Let's go for something in the 1 mil range so we can get some money to Elvis.
I think we end up sitting very pretty if we nab a solid pass rusher in FA.
I like this move for a few reasons... If Hass wants to stay, he will literally take a huge paycut. We bring in Fitz who I think can outplay Locker and end up winning the starting job. He already has a relationship with Levitre and would have a phenominal backfield of CJ and Greene. This is a very good fit and makes ample room for DUMERVIL!
I think 2 mil is reasonable for a strong backup
Yeah definitely not 7.5 for Hass.
Fitzy will probably get more than 2 mil
Why not? How about because it would be totally insane to pay the 10-year veteran minimum for a player who would be inactive on game days.
FWIW, here is a list of 2012 backup QB salaries in the NFL:
Arizona: Kevin Kolb - $4.9M
Atlanta: Chris Redman - $825K
Baltimore: Tyrod Taylor - $500K
Buffalo: Tyler Thigpen - $3M / Vince Young - $2M
Carolina: Derek Anderson - $825K
Chicago: Jason Campbell - $3.5M
Cincinnati: Bruce Gradkowski - $2M
Dallas: Kyle Orton - $2.5M
Denver: Caleb Hanie - $1M
Detroit: Shaun Hill - $2.25M
Green Bay: Graham Harrell - $540K
Houston: TJ Yates - $520K
Indianapolis: Drew Stanton - $1.25M
Jacksonville: Chad Henne - $2.6M
Kansas City: Brady Quinn - $1.5M
Miami: Matt Moore - $2.5M
Minnesota: Sage Rosenfels - $1.5M

That puts the current league average of backup QB salary at $1.9 million
I'm all for it. Hell, bring on the change! Besides being sacked a lot, his stats weren't that bad 2012. However, it makes too much sense to me so it probably won't happen...and Elvis?...no way we get that lucky.
