And about damned time too.

As far as I can tell from this and ESPN's coverage, the total moneys the same as that Rivers rejected earlier but the structuring of incentives is different. I'm guessing someone decided the 4 rings/4 MVP's bonus was just a waste of good ink.

So I guess Chargers fans can be happy. Or at least marginally less suicidal.

That's not going to happen, and you know it

I may go pick up a few tickets now, though.



Willful ignorance of science is not commendable. Refusing to learn the difference between a credible source and a shill is criminally stupid.

The media pounced all over the original contract's incentives...but is such a thing unusual for football? I know in baseball, incentives are common. Players' contracts routinely have bonuses for being selected to the All-Star team, winning or finishing top 10 in MVP/Cy Young, MVP of a playoff series (with escalating bonuses for each round) and in some cases leading the league in certain categories. I remember Bill Swift's Rockies' contract from 1995 had incentives for leading in K's, wins, and....ERA. Winning four Super bowls and MVP's with the Chargers is about as outlandish as leading the NL in ERA while playing in Coors Field.

He can wait for the job he wants with the control he wants. Why take the Browns (same division aside) when they aren't even close and just fired their entire front office. The Cowboys job would work except I can't see him getting the control he wants.
