  • Trent Green Back in St. Louis

    Like he needs to ever play again. It's hard to walk away from the money, but he's one more lick from eating through a straw.

    Seems like a terrible contract for the Rams.

    "We have now solidified our quarterback position," coach Scott Linehan said. "You will be hard-pressed to find the quality we have at that position."
    Huh???

      Fuck. $3 mil a year for a back up quarterback? I like Trent Green and all, but damn.

            Does all of it count against the cap? If he gets another concussion and starts talking to Elvis, do we have it on the books for 3 years?

              I'm sure there would be an injury settlement, then, and only his bonus would be accelerated.

                The years on the contract mean very little. If he doesn't get killed on the field he's certainly an upgrade over Gus.

                  The years mean nothing. Say the Rams cut him tomorrow it is my understanding the cap hit would only be the sign on bonus plus that strange roster bonus. Still $2.1 million plus $900K for a back-up QB with his recent health issues is a lot of money.

                    So we trade Issac Bruce for Trent Green.

                    Hmmmmm.

                      not sure, but I don't think he was a butterfly landing on the face mask away from brain dead.

                          No, but he was one more concrete wall headbutt from paralysis.

                              Not sure why so many think Green is brain dead, but if the doctors think he can still play, then I'm okay with it too. He's definitely an upgrade from Frerotte.

                              Oh, and to all you self-proclaimed "capologists", that contract isn't crazy money for a good backup QB in the NFL.
