Pompeani must have been reading Y2J here.  He's parroting the same info, the bastard.

If this is an 8-10 with $30M, it's MUCH bigger than I expected.  

Not that I'm bitching.

Man, that's some serious ca-ching!  It'll be interesting to see how the deal is structured to give us cap room now and/or in the future.  Not that I'll understand it anyway...

And by the way, forget Mewelde Moore.  Sign someone who can BLOCK for him!

But the really big news...

Pittsburgh hosted former Vikings running back Mewelde Moore on Sunday and his signing appears imminent.

Wow, now that's a big time deal.  Outstanding news in this otherwise boring offseason.  He definitely earned the money.

I'm sure the $36M isn't all just SB.  Some has to be roster and other bonii; at $36 over 8, that's $4.5M min per; I have to think this ballons out, both in bonus and salary, in later years, tho' the likely cap hit per will still be >$5M for most of the deal.

Be interesting to see how they structured.  I think the 8 years and $36M are the msot surprising aspects here; in reality, maybe this deal's more of a 6-year, let's renegotiate in 2014 type of thing?

wow that's huge!  Need to see how the deal is structred, but nice to have it done.  I would have thought 8 years 70 mill. or 80 max.  Does this make him the highest payed QB in the League?
