-Michael Vick became the richest player in the NFL by agreeing to call Atlanta home for the next decade. The Falcons' star quarterback signed a 10-year, $130 million contract extension Thursday that guarantees him an NFL-record $37 million in bonuses... Vick's contract surpasses the $98 million deal Indianapolis quarterback Peyton Manning signed in March -- although Manning's contract is for seven years. Manning was guaranteed $34.5 million in bonuses-

I think Vick is a great player, I think the Falcons are over-rated but Vick does his part.

I'm just glad Peerless Price is no longer the highest paid player on the Falcons roster. Price has done nothing to add to the Falcons and very often drops passes.

As for the deal, good news. I'm just wondering how fast he's going to be at 33?

That contract is probably so backloaded that he will NEVER see the full amount of the contract.

Richest contact in footall: tenth best guy at his position. Way to go Falcons!

And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men....that's the meaning of Christmas, Charlie Brown.

That's the thing: Since it's a 10-year contract and NFL contracts are not guaranteed, I imagine they'll renegotiate about halfway through the contract, give or take a couple of years. This is a great deal for both sides: Even if Vick doesn't see most of the $100 M, the signing bonus is certainly the highest I've seen. And on the Falcons side, they lock up their best player for a while, will work the contract so it doesn't hurt their cap, and can renegotiate with Vick whenever they want.

I am dumbfounded by this. Michael Vick? $130MILLION dollars?

Good to lock him up though, now, get a few guys who can catch the ball, and they might have a good deal on thier hands, otherwise, its like when Steve Young signed for $80Million in the USFL and had nobody to throw to and just kept taking sacks and seeing passes dropped.

Tenth best QB? Hardly. Vick can win games by himself. They've tried to reign him in so he doesn't kill himself but the guy is worth the money. He's probably one of the few "draws" in the NFL. I live in a city without an NFL team and the majority of jerseys that I see people wearing are Michael Vick. People pay attention when Vick plays.

There's only two QB's I'd take over Vick, Manning and McNabb. And I'm not even sure if you swapped Vick with McNabb that Vick wouldn't do just as well there.

For what it's worth, he's also the analyst on all Vikings preseason games and has been for the past several years. Which you, as a resident of Minnesota, should know, Chris.
