I think it will be more in line with what Tony Romo got but with more guaranteed money.

I say 6 and 65. 16 signing bonus.

I'm assuming this is "Price Is Right" style of proximation - the closest without going over.

5 years, 44 mil and 14 mil of that as bonus.  Or, almost 9 mil per year.  I mean, we are talking about DEM CHEEPE AZZD RONEY!S!!!!!!!!!

What ever he gets we need to get it done ASAP.  He is due about 3 mill in roster bonus that will go against the cap soon and we also need to know where we are in $ so we can get other deals done.

That seems close to what I would have guessed.  Let me look at this a bit and come back with something.

There was an article awhile back about bens contract and they said that Ben was taking Romo's deal as the frame for the contract that he wants. So i would say its going to be really close to this. If they get it done it will def. be more cap friendly for this season, which would be great... giving us a bit more to play with this offseason...

I say after we do our cuts... we will be prolly targeting 2 key FA... who is anyones guess... i posted before who i thought.

Excellent overview here.  

I'd go with this guy's numbers for Ben, but I think they're gonna push for six years.  So I took his numbers *6/5, and then applied the standard terms and conditions (10% discount off NFL average rates, per Omar "Coupon" Khan), and came up with this:

6 years, $59.4M total, $20.52M bonus, $11.88M average per.

Hard to believe the Stillers would shell out a $20M bonus, but then again...

How about $37 per minute for a standard 40 hr work week?  That works out to $4,440,000 per year.  

Nah, that's too much below market value.

Now that's funny...

Sounds about right.  

If your going to invest that much into your starting QB, then number one and two priorities are going to be O-Line for sure and WR/ Third TE.

Screw the D.

I find it incredibly ironic (and a bit hypocritcal) that Pittsburgh is going to make #7 the highest paid player on the team, by a longshot, in a team record contract in terms of base and various bonuses, yet in the biggest game they played this year, they took the ball out of his hands when the game was on the line, after he led one of the biggest playoff comebacks...ever.

Oh, the ironing...

6YR/70MILLION/27MILLIONBONUS*

And, worth every fucking cent.

*Bonus number is the total for various roster, signing and other creatively structured guaranteed bonuses.

Brady got somewhere in the neighborhood of 6 years/$11 million per a few years back, right?  Even with the increased cap # since, I can't imagine we go over that.

Brady's cap hit for 2008 is currently $14.626 million.

I'd expect another restructuring or a new deal for him before next season.  If I'm Pittsburgh, I get Ben's extension done before he gets one.  Don't want to give him any more ammo than he already has.

Romo got $69 mil with $32 mil guranteed.
Jamarcus got $61 mil with $32 guranteed.
Ben's market value should be more.
Do you think he would take a little less if they agree to keep Faneca for 3 - 4 more years?

I don't see Ben willing to take less to keep an aging guard. Maybe a stud WR, though...how much is Moss gonna want next season?

Even with Faneca, he was still on his back close to 50 times this season.  I doubt that would be much of an incentive during negotiations.
