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.

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...

 Good info Finny!

Now that's funny...

Ya think our society's priorities are a little out of whack?

Not that there's anything wrong with it...

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.

6 years, 64.5 million, $18.5 bonus

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?
