T.O. To Be Released Today

Postby VaderFin » Tue Mar 14, 2006 8:33 am

T.O. is due his big roster bonus by 4pm today. Since no one is going to trade for him he'll be free sometime today. Dallas? Denver?

I forget where I've read it, but I don't think Denver is gonna go for him. Someone said that their reported interest is vastly overblown.

Probably Dallas. But that's pure speculation.

Would T.O. be interested in paying for a winning team and taking less money or playing for a losing team but making more money?

I'm guessing he just wants more money. He always says that he wants to win a Superbowl, but he had valid chances with the Eagles.

Instead, we just heard him whine about his contract.

You are probably right. I think a surprise team like Cleveland or Green Bay or the like might be able to sign him to a bigger contract then the names being thrown around.

And, he showed his desire to win a SB by coming back against doctors orders to play injured in SB39... I think he wants both alot of money and another shot at a SB victory.

Although Dallas is likely, does KC have any cap room left?

I don't think Cleveland will be in the mix. They will probably leave 6 million or so left under the cap in order to sign rookies. That leaves just enough for a free agent line backer signing. Not enough for TO really.

(if my math is right...)

You can rule the Loins out! We have our WR: Corey Bradford! Woooo! TO who? If TO wants to win a Super Bowl he is going to have to go through Detroit first!

Seriously it should be interesting to see where he ends up. Denver is a good guess, Shanahan has a big enough ego to think he can keep TO under control.

I think, therefore I am. I think fantasy, therefore I am unreal?

not to give him the contract he would want no. we are at the monet 7.3 under the cap and still need to get some backup QB's,sign find a cb, resign tynes, offered a deal to benny sapp and someone else (don't remember how as i read the article acouple days ago),pay draft picks etc. peterson told drew that he would be up for offereing a 1 year no guarantee incentive ladden deal but hasn't heard anything and probably will not hear anything back from him.

If that's what he really wanted I can't see why he'd be unhappy with a 7 year 49 million dollar deal and playing on a team that had been superbowl contenders for 5 straight years.

Dallas seems the most likely spot, as Jerry Jones should have the money to satisfy TO's cravings... for now.
