49ers: Peterson contract offer pulled

by Fanball Staff - Fanball.com
Friday, October 15, 2004

News
49ers' general manager Tom Donahue said Thursday that the six-year, $37.8 million contract offered to linebacker Julian Peterson is no longer on the table. "No, that offer was back in March," Donahue told the Mercury News. "When Julian signed the franchise tag, that was his offer. You can't have an offer on the table when a guy signs a franchise tag. We've never had negotiations after that point. When we start negotiating again, we start from scratch." Peterson tore an Achilles' tendon last Sunday and is out for the year.

Views
The deal offered in March might have been pulled from the table, but that doesn't necessarily mean the Niners will try to lowball Peterson because of his injury. After all, they signed tight end Eric Johnson to a three-year contract extension during the offseason even though he spent last season on injured reserve with a broken collarbone.

I'm sure Peterson is thrilled that he listened to them now. I feel bad for him but it serves those two right.

Kellen Winslow already got screwed because of his injury (if he played 30% of the snaps, he would've got so much more money...Postons negotiated that part into the contract).
That's two bad blunders for the Poston brothers.

I hope Orlando Pace suffers a horrible injury too. That'd be great.

Plus since Kellen got hurt he lost a ton of money from his signing bonus. Pace already ditched them, how long will it be until the rest of their clients wise up.

Peterson IS that team, they need to offer him more, franchise or not, him and Parrish are the ones who hold that defense together (whatever is left of it anyways). He'll get a fair deal, but not those numbers, kinda sad...

they did offer more than that... i think those numbers are guaranteed money, not counting signing bonus or something.

The niners offered him the biggest contract in franchise history....

that contract would have made juilan the 2nd highest paid player at his position behind only ray lewis..... he still rejected it.

from the 49er website.

Donahue Talks Peterson Contract Back to Newsroom
Wednesday, June 09, 2004


RE – Negotiations with the Postons?

“The way it works is that you can’t really begin negotiations again until July 15. There’s a period of time that if you negotiate and then sign a contract, as you guys know, the franchise goes with that contract. We’ve had no contact whatsoever with the Postons since we informed them that we were going to franchise Julian. I would expect that sometime after July 15 that we’ll have some initial contact. But there really isn’t a whole lot to discuss.”

“I do not expect us to be in any heavy negotiations or anything like that. We’ve made an offer that is the highest in the history of the franchise. We’ve offered this athlete the biggest contract in the history of the 49ers. We have offered him the second highest linebacker contract in the history of the National Football League. The only player at his position that would have a higher contract than he would is Ray Lewis. Ray Lewis is an MVP of the league and a perennial Pro Bowler. We’ve made Julian the second highest paid linebacker in the league. We’ve offered him a contract that is higher than Brian Urlacher’s. We’ve offered him a contract that is higher than the contract that LaVar Arrington signed for new money, for new money I am talking about. We’ve gone where we can go. We’ve made a very, very competitive offer. We understand these things. This isn’t any animosity with Julian or with the Postons. This is part of doing business in the National Football League. It really is. We’re anticipating now that we couldn’t come to an agreement, that the things that I just mentioned that they aren’t good enough. We did what the Collective Bargaining Agreement calls for, which is to put a franchise tag on a player. And we expect the player to come in and play for the negotiated franchise number. Now, when he gets here and all that, I can’t really speak of that. But, I do not anticipate that we are going to have any heavy, ongoing or beginning any new negotiations on July 15. I just don’t think that that’s reasonable because we don’t have very much room to move. We really don’t, based on what I told you. I can show you what I told you is accurate. I’m not blowing smoke, I’m telling you what it is and that’s where it is.”

RE – Are the figures signing bonus money?

“I’m talking about total package. You can slice it any way you want, it’s the second best linebacker contract in the history of the league in our opinion. Now, somebody else might say that we’re grieving LaVar Arrington’s contract. But I’m just telling you what Arrington signed, what Urlacher signed and what we’ve offered Julian Peterson and we’ve done all the research, and where Lewis is at, this is the second highest contract for a linebacker in the history of the league. That’s where it is.”

RE – Peterson stated he wanted a signing bonus in the area of Arrington and Urlacher, is the 49ers offer in that area?

“You do your own research. We’ve offered him $15.5 million to sign. You go figure it out. That’s what we’ve offered him. I’m just saying what I’m saying.”

RE – Peterson wants $30 million to sign?

“I don’t know. I’ve lost track.”

RE – Has he talked with Peterson?

“I haven’t seen Julian or talked to him. I love Julian. He’s a great guy. He’s been one of my favorite players since we drafted him. I was certainly part of a team that selected him to come here. He’s a great guy. We love Julian Peterson.”
