Do you know what it is like to feel like you are not getting properly compensated for the value that you offer your employer? I say he should go for it. Get the money. He only has a limited time frame to make money before he retires.


I don't think you can compare occupations as well when salaries differ by millions.

I am going to keep him on my bench at least until bye weeks begin to affect my roster (unless it becomes official that he is out for the year).

So if you are old in the NFL, you should get paid more?

This guy is 35. He had a career year last year. At 35, he's not going to replicate what he did last year. However, he thinks he should be paid like the top receivers in the game. That is dumb. Would you pay Keenan McCardell the type of money that TO, Moss, or Coles gets? No. You don't pay old players. He signed a contract. Honor it.

I do.

Look at the Bucs. Warren Sapp, John Lynch, Keyshawn Johnson all gone. Keyshawn is a primadonna. He wasn't as good as he made himself out to be. He didn't perform well but he demanded special attention and he negatively affected the team. Keenan is a proven performer who has greatly contributed to the success of his team. There's a difference. I understand being frustrated because you own him in your league, but the guy is not a primadonna.

I would be hopeful. When he comes back he might be pissed off with something to prove.
