D'Cutt Not a FA

Postby slowkidz » Thu Feb 26, 2004 7:53 am

The boy was thinking he was in for a Huge Payday with another team...however, his agent kinda messed that up for him. Sounds to me like someone just lost their job...

According to reports this evening on Cleveland radio, Browns WR Dennis Northcutt will remain bound to the team through the 2006 season.

WTAM's Mike Trivassano told listeners tonight that Northcutt's agent failed to file the appropriate paperwork with the NFL to enable the receiver to void the final three years of his deal with the Browns.

Northcutt signed a six-year contract with the Browns in 2000, when he was the initial pick in the second round of the draft. His contract called for a $1.53 million signing bonus and salaries which gradually increased each year. The final three years of the contract, however, were voidable if Northcutt attained certain performance targets.

---

Northcutt was expected to be in high demand as a free agent and could potentially lose millions of dollars if he is unable to void the final three years. The Kansas City Cheifs, among other teams, were expected to vie for Northcutt's services.



No Agency for Northcutt?

Is he still representing Ricky Williams? Last I heard P filed for bankruptcy, so he might need the extra cash another player brings in...

The bias on this board is funny sometimes. In a similar post about a player not filing for free agency in time (Owens), he's called an idiot and gets all the blame. In this post, all the blame was assigned to the agent for screwing over Northcutt.

I agree, seems like Northcutt was the bigger of the 2 idiots, TO's deal seems possibly more calculated given his history of late with the 9ers

Same thing happened in the NBA. Agent filled paperwork to exercise option late and Anthony Carter (then Miami Heat, now SA Spurs) got boned out of a few million. The Heat cut him, he signed is a better situation in SA... AND... his agency wrote him a check for the difference with an apology letter!

Now that's class.

Can you imagine someone handing you a check that said
Pay to the order of <Insert Name> $1,000,000.00

I'd go into the bank with the hottest tellers when I made that deposit.
