    I'm happy for former Rams defensive end Grant Wistrom. He's a good football player, and a good dude. And he hit the lotto in the form of a $14 million signing bonus paid to him by the Seattle Seahawks. Wistrom never made the Pro Bowl in six seasons here, and he's averaged only six sacks the last two seasons despite playing opposite the incessantly double- teamed Leonard Little.

    Candidly, this is one of the most insane contracts I've seen in 25 years of covering pro sports. How did Wistrom's agent, Tom Condon, get the Seahawks to overpay so wildly? Who was negotiating for the Seahawks -- Wistrom's mother? Condon is now qualified to work for Halliburton.
    Dude. Can. Fly.
