    Oooaaah, ...........nevermind.

    It will take him at least 'til December to shake off his rust and then.....(maybe :!: ) he could be a solid starter for the Lions.

    But unfortunately (for the Lions :lol: ) he'll start nagging and brawling in November (at the latest :!: )
    that they should start him elsewhere or treat him like someone or
    give him the opportunity to blablabla...... like he always did.

    It's better THEM than US. :wink:

    Len Pasquarelli, of ESPN.com, reports the one-year deal signed by Detroit Lions OL Ross Verba is worth $4 million, according to league salary documents. Verba receives a $2.2 million signing bonus and his 2006 base salary is $1.8 million. If the team decides to exercise an option for next spring, the deal would increase to five years in length and could be worth as much as $20 million. Verba would receive a $2.5 million option bonus and his base salaries for the four seasons would be $1.5 million (2007), $2.6 million (2008), $3 million (2009) and $3.6 million (2010). He would also receive roster bonuses of $1 million each in 2009 and 2010 and workout bonuses of $200,000 each for 2007-2010.

    From ProFootballTalk

    LIONS LAMBASTED FOR PAYING VERBA

    League insiders are laughing their asses off in response to reports that the Detroit Lions gave offensive lineman Ross Verba a $2.2 million signing bonus, a $1.8 million base salary for 2006, and a five-year deal worth up to $20 million in total payments.

    Said one high-level league insider, "If any of this is true, they should fire every member of that organization."

    Verba regarded in most NFL cities as a complete and total turd. Besides, who in the hell were the Lions competing with for his services?

    In fairness to the Lions, the deal includes a $2.5 million option bonus payable in 2007, which means that the contract might only be worth, in the end, $4 million over one year. Even then, however, Verba doesn't deserve $4 million for one year of football.

    Heck, he doesn't deserve $1 million. Instead, the Lions should have dangled the one-year veteran minimum salary and told Verba to take it, leave it, or get a better deal elsewhere.
