    It was low ball..... c'mon man, it's for only one year and it came from TT for a back up QB.

    There´s no confirmation that it´s only a one-year deal either.

    The lack of details tells us it was a low contract.

    This was on the ESPN website:

    http://espn.go.com/nfl/story/_/id/10812560/mailbag-market-only-getting-worse-running-backs
    Flynn supposedly signed his deal a week ago on the 16th, so the information should be available.

    Since he signed it, that's a good thing, right? Or did you want him to overpay? :D
    I don't think it will be vet minimum but not much over that. I hope it has PT incentives - he should get paid more if he has to replace Rodgers.

    Where did I say he should be overpaid? I didn't. I did say it was low ball, you can bet on that. I do think we are lucky to still have him and yes, I agree that if Flynn has to step in there should be some sort of bonus pay. Why do you read in to everything I have to say? I don't hate TT, just don't like the fact that he over pays certain guys and cheaps out in places we really need guys.

    true, but "a one year deal" according to them is not some type of insider info secret james bond spy info. I would tend to believe that. Just wondering why no info on the $$ has been released.

    If my memory recall is correct, the Packers do not released Player contract information to the public. I think the NFLPA (NFL Players union) releases player's contract information to the public.

    Because you have a history here of - IMO - excessively whining about nearly everything Thompson does.

    Why not make a a little contest out of it?

    If it is a one year deal, I'd say $1.5 mil, with a modest signing bonus of $250,000 or less. If Thompson was able to squeeze him I'd say a roster bonus instead of a signing bonus in roughly the same amount with the same $1.5 mil total value.

    If it is a two year deal, I'd see no reason not to double the total value to $3.0 mil, but definitely with a singing bonus on the order of $500,000.

    The Packers have officially annonuced the signing of Flynn, which probably means we´ll get the details of the deal tomorrow.

    Oshkosh--You should never question TT. Please follow protocol on the site.

    Apparently they agreed to the deal last week when it was reported, but he didn't actually sign the contract until yesterday morning. The Packers would have then filed the paperwork by 4pmET on Tuesday and we should hear about the financials today.

    I forgot, the only opinions allowed around here are those that involve kissing the old mans A$$. All other opinions will be questioned and get that poster slammed and belittled. God forbid I have my own f*cking opinion.

    :rolleyes: Glad you understand. Now quit whining.

    When you're in the minority, you have to actually form compelling arguments instead of using profanity.

    Pretty simple Oshkosh! TT's like the folks in charge in Washington. He knows what's right--Don't question!

    Typical straw man raised by someone who incessantly whines not only about what Thompson does but about what he may do. Of course Thompson can be questioned and criticized but (thank goodness) only a small group here joins in your constant negativity about Thompson.

    Flynn's deal is for one year, $968,125 with a $75K signing bonus. He can earn another $100K in active roster bonuses.

    Absolutely like the deal.

    Agreed. overthecap.com is showing total value as $1,068,125, but what's $100k among friends.

    http://www.overthecap.com/teamcap.php?Team=Packers&Year=2014

    He got a couple hundred thousand more than Freeman which would indicate he was the first to agree to terms.

    Right about where we expected it to be. It's a bargain for a proven backup QB. You know what's interesting is that Flynn's base is $730,000. Compare that to this blast from the past article from 2004:

    http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/columns/story?columnist=pasquarelli_len&id=1791784

    That ought to quell anybody who whines about TT overpaying.
