I don't think he'd drop down to the $10 -$12M a year area though. Lots of talk about a "home town" discount - I guess I'd need to know what amount is being thought of in order to agree/disagree with whether he's taking it.
    IMO $15 mill per year is the definition of a "home town" discount and below market value.

    I heard the money, 61 million, is only guaranteed if he suffers a catastrophic injury and they made him take out an insurance policy that pays the 49ers 20 million if he suffers that catastrophic injury. These contracts are getting unbelievably complicated.

    I wonder if they have an insurance policy for when he sucks after the team falls apart because of his contract?

    The referee said that you hit Brian Sipe too hard. Did you hit him too hard?
    I hit him as hard as I could - Jack Lambert
