In response to rkarp's comment:
Russell again showing he has zero understanding of the cap.
Hall having an annual AAV of $5M means absolutely nothing. THe numbers are not released yet, but the contract will prob look like this:
2014 base $1M bonus $1.5M work out bonus $1M cap hit $3.5M
2015 base $1m bonus $1.5M cap hit $2.5M
2016 base $4m bonus $1.5M cap hit $1.5M (Hall is released)
2017 base $5M bonus $1.5M cap hit $$1.5 (Hall is released)
Contract 4/$18M AAV $4.5M per year
Hall gets $9M guaranteed and is cut after 2 years and the skins suffer very minimal cap hit those 2 years
IN essence they get Hall for 2/$9M. A very favorable contract if you like the player (appears the skins do)
They can also on top of that sign Talib as they have a ton of cap space
Also, Hall was not extended, he was a free agent.
Good deal for both parties. Hall gets $9M guaranteed at 30 years old. Skins get a #2 or #3 CB for 2 years at a reasonable rate and very workable cap number
Essentially it's what we are paying Arrington...think about that for a second...who would you rather have? Arrington or Hall?
You're right, he wasn't let go this year (my bad), he was cut and brought back last year for a little over a million for a one year deal.
yes exactly. but I think Arrington sees the backside of his contract, Hall does not, which Hall is very well aware of. The key is too understand Hall is not a #1 CB and should not be paid like one, which the SKins didnt. Now Skins have to get a #1 CB to insure Hall is not exposed, which makes me nervous with Talib
