[quote=stlrz d]I know you're kidding, but I believe in the NFL "hometown discount" refers to taking less money to resign with your current team.Originally Posted by rpmpit
At least that's how I always understood it based on how I've seen it used.[/quote:i7y9e8bn]
I've always thought it to mean that a guy who is originally from a town or area of a team would choose to come back and play for his hometown team for a discount. Like over the past few seasons there's been talk of Jason Taylor (from Pitt) and Ty Law (from Aliquippa) taking the "hometown" discount to play for the Steelers.
