    Wouldn't be suprised...... I think 34+ in guaranteed $$$.... Does that sound right? ... NFL Live just said that Peyton and Ben were the only two above him....

    ESPN reported 34.7 guaranteed, Peyton's guaranteed was 34.5. That's pretty sad and would really be sad if he doesn't pan out.

    i'm not headed down the "Tom Brady took less" path. But, I'm suggesting that the team seemed to just open the check book... this one will be renegotiated several times if he plays a significant number of years.

    I guess I'm still stuck in 90's steelers FO mentality.

    Sometimes I miss the old days before information overload and I knew a lot less about salaries and guys characters off the field.

    Ryan only got $1.3 million less guaranteed than Ben...on a 6 year deal. If Ryan and Ben only made the guarantee for the life of their respective deals(6 years Ryan, 8 years Ben), Ryan would actually make more...$5.78 mil to $4.5 mil per year.

    We know neither will make just the guaranteed money, but you get the idea.
