    Default Dewayne Robertson's Contract

    I haven't seen this posted anywhere. Check it out

    http://insider.espn.go.com/espn/blog...3dstateChanged

    Roster ready?: The Broncos signed former Jets defensive tackle Dewayne Robertson to a six-year, $24 million contract. But the deal is contingent on Robertson making the team. Robertson has a $900,000 base and a $3.1 million bonus if he makes the roster. The Broncos gave up a conditional pick to acquire Robertson. If he doesn't make the team, they may not have to give up a draft choice. But if he does well with the Broncos, the Jets could get as much as a third-round choice.

    Half this board could make our team as a DT... might as well pay him his $3.1 million bonus now.

    Since i cant follow the link does anyone know if it mentions anything at all about the whole 65% playing time thing. Does anyone remember hearing about this?

    Supposedly, if dewayne plays in 65% or less we give them nothing, and more than that comes to some pick value. I just wonder how that all is going to corrolate in their as he most likely will make the team and be a starter.

    That was in the original story about the signing... (updated a few different times). Considering I've seen it mentioned in a number of different articles i believe it to be true. If Robertson doesn't play 65% of the snaps the jets get nothing. Umnless things are different than how they were under Coyer he won't hit 65%

    Sounds to me like we made a good deal for a questionable player. If he doesn't make the team we don't owe him a gob of money, and if he does, he still has to hit 65% of snaps before we lose a valuable draft pick, and with our rotation that is a pretty high target to hit.

    here's to dewayne kicking ass and taking names on 64% of our snaps. . . .


    “When we do find that guy, we’ve got to have the continuity on the offensive side to where we can train him and develop him and get him there. This is our fourth offense in probably three or four years. Quarterbacks need to be developed. You don’t find one ready-made. We got to have a solid system in place for when we do go after whatever guy it may be, a young guy or a trade or whatnot.”

    i don't know if i believe the 65% thing... seems like they wouldn't leave that out when they get new contract details...

    i'm personally confident though, that dewayne will earn every dollar he makes, and would not be upset at all if he walks away with the maximum that his contract will allow. he has the tools to be a pro bowler. if his (knock on wood) knees hold up, i still think 4 million a year is not too much to pay for this guy, especially with how desperate we were for a DT.

    to put the contract in perspective, shaun rogers (who many of us, including me, wanted) got a 6 year, $42 million contract! knees willing, i think we got a bargain. knees unwilling, we didn't give anything up! great deal, very happy about this one.

    I hate to say it, but I hope we end up owing them a third next year.

    According to Rasizer in this week's TSN team report if Robertson doesn't play 65% of the snaps we still may not owe them any draft compensation.
