    You can slice it in a way that makes sense or in a way to support an argument. You’ve chosen the later.

    Eventually if he is not traded.

    Can’t disagree more.

    Players know what the score is on Mariota’s contract. If he turned down $15M to start with a playoff team, that’s on him. Nobody “dicked” him.

    The NFL is competition. Why would you make a competitor better by releasing a starting QB for free? You wait for compensation. If compensation is not forthcoming, you cut as needed, when needed.

    If another team is going to collude with a player on a nod/wink deal to deny you compensation, you wait them out. You don’t give them a starting QB with an offseason to prepare and beat you and others on Sunday. And you potentially (but not likely) file a grievance if they paid Mariota more than Cam/Winston money come August/September.

    PR hit, like Rugg's family reaction to being drafted by the Raiders?

    They knew....

    I hope you’re wrong. But that’s the book on Jon. He’ll never be viewed differently if he folds. He already held on long enough to get Brown to blink. And having banked his $14M, it will be easier for him to hold and wait out Mariota.

    I don't think anyone is really convinced that Marcus is a starting QB, but he might be.

    Yes, @gst8 correctly pointed out a possible bad assumption.

    I think the more correct statement is that if the Raiders overpay the second tier of FAs will come here.

    We lose out on the cream of the crop every time.

    Don't you just love our bastard of a language? Especially when you can technically spell fish as ghoti and pronounce it the same.

    It's less than 12 months since the Raiders gave Littleton a contract that was widely praised by NFL insiders (particularly in relation to Blake Martinez's contract).

    That was not an overpay in the minds of NFL and instead it was praised as an exceptional move. It's started looking bad about 6 or 7 months later but the Raiders did not have to overpay for him. Nor did they have to move to the 2nd tier of LBs.

    I would say the same goes for Kwit at MLB.

    Littleton at the time was considered a very good signing. He was one of the top FA's on the market last offseason. Something happened from the time he left the airport and got to the practice facility in Vegas lol
