    D'Brickashaw Ferguson has the biggest offseason workout bonus

    Click the link- there are a bunch of Jets on this list


    [url]http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=6228005[/url]


    A common thought in the football world is that players will not lose money in a lockout until the regular-season games start. But offseason workout bonuses easily could be flushed away.

    ESPN obtained a copy of some of the biggest workout bonuses that players have, and whom this lockout will hit in the wallet sooner rather than later. Jets offensive tackle D'Brickashaw Ferguson has the biggest offseason workout bonus -- $750,000 if he participates in 85 percent of the workouts.

    Quarterbacks Aaron Rodgers, Eli Manning and Jay Cutler each have $500,000 offseason workout bonuses, though Rodgers must participate in 85 percent of the workouts, and Manning and Cutler 90 percent each.

    Whatever the numbers are, they are jeopardized the longer the lockout lasts. It is just one more way that both sides in the labor dispute are taking financial hits.

    The thing is the bonuses are based on a %, so if there is a delay that reduces the total number of workouts, then it shouldnt make much of a difference for a player.

    Brick couldn't give 85% in the biggest game of the season. Maybe these outlandish bonuses are planned all wrong.

    Yeah WTF?

    In one thread you blamed the AFCC loss on the 3-17 sack/fumble, and here in this thread you praise the snoozing LT who was responsible.

    Go figure.

    By both sides are you referring owners and players? If so what sort if financial hit are the owners taking?

    it was a funny play there were several DB blitzers on the outside, Brick picked up the outside guy... the inside guy came later... it's true he has some blame on that play... but I also don't know what he could have done differently.

    the quarterback is also responsible for throwing it earlier or tucking the ball.

    there's no understanding coach who tells the QB it's ok to get strip sacked under heavy pressure.

    the offensive coordinator is also at blame for trying to shift the offense into high gear on 3rd and 17 deep in their own end.

    there's plenty of blame to go around, Brick is still an elite Left tackle.

    Such a poor analysis of that play....

    It was simply a great blitz by pittsburgh....Brick took the correct guy at the time, as the guy who eventually hit sanchez was on a delayed blitz and he was already engaged with the first guy.

    Brick is an elite LT, who has been a rock at his position, doesnt get in trouble off the field, doesnt get hurt and has a reasonable contract.

    In the top 5 most valuable players in the organization....

    Hedging His Bets???

    Interesting that lead plaintiff Tom Brady's new contract calls for a $250,000 workout bonus, which according to the ESPN report, he can re-coup in 2012 if there are no workouts in 2011.

    i didn't know a workout bonus even existed...

    so...what you're telling me...

    is that if brick participates in less then 100% of the off-season workouts which prep him and help him perform for the monster contract he posseses, that he gets near a million dollars...

    are you ****ing ****ting me....

    these players really need to shut the **** up already its pathetic..

    and the owners need to take a step back and get real.

    Should've BLOCKED.

    Brick touched NOBODY the entire play. The first blitzer was 22-Gay; LaDainian took him. The second guy was 24-Taylor; Brick's only play.

    [QUOTE]the quarterback is also responsible for throwing it earlier or tucking the ball. [/QUOTE]

    Sanchez was blindsided in the act of throwing. Taylor was coming full speed. All Brick had to do was disrupt him slightly and the throw would've been made.

    Totally wrong. Go to nfl.com and watch the play:

    I posted this right after the game. Nobody responded of course. Got buried in the chaos.
