Good luck to Collins, there are lots of oppurtunities but he will have to take a pay cut to get signed.

There's another small problem generally known as Mrs. Warner.

"She's a pain in the ass and she leads him around like a f--king clown," one league source told us. Her history of active involvement in her husband's affairs -- including a phone call to a radio station during which she labeled coach Mike Martz a liar -- is a significant deterrent for any team who might otherwise be interested.


...So there you go.



HAHAHAHAHAHA Thats just too funny.

Being a good QB just doesn't seem to cut it anymore in this league. You either need to be a star or young. Sorry Collins, best of luck though.

Collins to Dallas sounds good. Collins might have to play the RB position though.The Cowboys still need a RB, dont they. :-b

Scary as it is, Collin in Dallas would actually decrease the number of turnover committed by their QB. Not really trying to knock Collins here, but his one fault has always been the high INT numbers, despite some otherwise excellent passing. Just frightening that Quincy Carter is even worse with turnovers.

I'm a Cowboys fan and I'd only be interested in Collins at a much, much lower price. He might be a small upgrade over Carter, but he's just not that great, so I'd rather not overpay for him, especially since Jerry and Tuna seem to be taking a conservative approach of building the team through the draft and FA pickups that don't compromise the team's salary cap situation. I'm content to wait through another mediocre to good season or two if that will get us to the promised land. That's how the 'Boys did it last time in the 90s. Most championship teams aren't built overnight.

Please correct me if I am wrong here...

Since Collins will most likely be cut, isnt he going to get paid by NYGiant anyway? The Giants wont have it count against their cap, but Collins would still be collecting a paycheck, right?

Given that, is he really asking for a big contract to play somewhere else, or will he be a bargain since he is essentially still getting paid by NY?

Someone smarter than I am on cap and contract issues please help me out here.

Unless he has guaranteed money worked into his contract, no. Once you're cut, you stop receiving a paycheck. The only thing guaranteed is your signing bonus, which is why most players try to get huge signing bonuses.

Given that, is he really asking for a big contract to play somewhere else, or will he be a bargain since he is essentially still getting paid by NY?

His salary counts against NYs cap, but some other team would be paying him. He'd effectively count against two caps at once. If a player is cut after June 1st, the cap hit is spread over two seasons.

I'd think Dallas has to be looking hard at Collins. They were one of few teams that had no QB and were still able to make the playoffs.

Quincy Carter? Hell I'd rather have Anthony Carter at QB.
