    Hawks sign Peterson

    I thought I'd post it since I'm trolling around tonight (;-P) and it hasn't been put up yet.

    Big cash for a guy who has some question marks around his play, too. It's going to be fun watching these contracts come back and haunt the Seahawks. Eight year huge deal to a 29-year-old RB, seven-year huge deal to a 28-year-old linebacker with some injury concerns.

    Have you seen how Alexander's contract breaks down? It's very cap friendly considering it's for an MVP. Also, I thought the JP contract was high too, but I'm reserving judgement until I see how it breaks down. Reinfeldt is great with the cap.

    Who's always the most overpaid player in the league? The guy that just signed with a rival team. LOL

    By the way, the Vikings seriously overpayed for Hutchinson.

    Peterson is a quality signing, but even you seahawk fans have to admit that contract is huge. That is Walter Jones/Orlando Pace money right there. Well we've been facing Peterson 2 times each year anyway so I'm not all that discouraged. All I know is that the NFC West won't be the worst division next year.

    I don't think it's that cap friendly at all. The Hawks aren't getting a lot of cap savings this year in comparison to Alexander's cap charge from last year, and the prices just keep going up, based on the figures I saw. How exactly is it "cap friendly?"

    And "considering it's for an MVP?" What does that mean? We're not talking about a QB here who can play into their mid-to-late 30s. RBs usually hit the wall between 30-31 and see a good dip in their production. Alexander is signed until he's, what, 37? He'll be fortunate to see half of that contract, which means accelerated cap charge for the Seahawks when they do make their tough decision.

    The contract essentially means Alexander retires a Hawk, but it also means the Hawk will be facing some moderate dead money when that retirement comes, because there's no way he lasts deep into the final years of it. And to me, that's not cap friendly, especially when you're not getting significant initial relief in comparison to previous figures.

    I completely agree with this. They essentially gave him franchise blind-side tackle money, which is insane for a guard.

    You mean have a few 100 + tackle seasons and then crap out when he's into his 30s?

    Peterson's a high risk/high reward proposition. At his best, he's a beast. At his worst, he's an underachieving egomaniac.

    Not sure I'd pay that kind of money to a 28 year old coming off an injured (2004) and somewhat sub-par (2005) season.

    I'm glad we signed Witherspoon before Peterson got signed. He might have wanted more money.

    1st of all, Shaun is lasting longer than a lot of RBs because he doesn't take a lot of hits. Whether we us Hawk fans like it or not, that's his style.

    Here are the cap hits:

    Cap numbers: $6.5M (2006), $6.275M (2007), $7.35M (2008), $8.437M (2009), $6.65M (2010), $7.7375M (2011), $8.825M (2012), $9.9125M (2013)

    http://scout.scout.com/a.z?s=114&p=9&c=2&cid=507685

    The next two years are around what we paid for him last year, and it does go up, but his SB will be paid by year 4 if I remember correctly (maybe it's 5), so if they want to cut him after that there will be no dead money.

    What does that mean, "he doesn't take a lot of hits"?

    The guy is one of the league leaders in carries, so he's going to take a lot of hits. It only take one to end a season.

    Hawk fans can be happy about their signings, but they will need to get used to the following phrase some day in the not to distant future:

    Dead Money
