The American Express is staying in Baltimore!

 

This might be the most exciting off-season for us in years.

Apparently a Daryl deal is pretty close

 

Figured this was coming with the McClain release.

 

5 years, but hoping Ozzie was wise.  TEs can usually go a while in the league, but when the start to slip it's bad.  Real interested in the numbers.  Hoping around 20-21 maybe 11-13 guaranteed.

pitta per year average is 6.5 or 6 around that ballpark.

I already don't like how this sounds.

 

Who knows though, there is a huge possibility we've yet to see the best of Pitta.

Sweet we got Pitta for 5 more years. Now we can tag Monroe while we try to keep Daryl or Graham or Jones although I am less optomistic on the last one still. We also are not forced to go TE in the first round. Good to get that out of the way.

It's a little more than I thought, but I'm happy to keep him around. Now onto Monroe.

What matters most is Joe is happy. Good deal with good numbers, it'll be interesting to see the details of the contract and how the numbers may escalate season by season with an increasing cap.

That's how I feel too.  I think most fans problem with the price is that we've only really seen Pitta in 1 season.  Sat behind Heap in 10, Dickson started in 11, played great in 12 and was injured most of 13.  We know from that one season he's clutch, but to sign him like this after a hip injury that can have lingering effects is why we're questioning it.  Our doctors and Ozzie must have faith.  If he stays healthy and performs at the 2012 level throughout, I have no problem with this deal.

That would be great. That would mean that it wouldn't kill us as bad if he can't recover. But I have faith that Pitta will be good to go lets hope(knock on wood)

I got the guaranteed part right at least.  Was off only 10 million with his total.  Slight margin.

More than I thought it would be, but with the extra cap room, luckily that shouldn't be a problem. Now slap that tag on Monroe.

Good news for sure. He should be a great asset in Kubiak's offense. Now lets solidify the offensive line to give Joe time to make the throws, and draft an offensive playmaker or two. In Ozzie We Trust

yeah if its more than that the 11-13 the highes it would be is 15 from sources. also i find it funny now that dolphins fans and media people are upset that they won't have a chance at Eugene now lol.

They should not have come out and said that they wanted Monroe. I mean jeez are we going to let him hit the market now with them being able to scoop him up or will we put the tag on him and let that negotiate a deal both sides can be happy with? Difficult decision lol

Obviously the FO values him more than a lot of fans did. I trust them (the FO) over the fan base, personally. Ozzie knows what he is doing.

Very generous for Pitta.

 

If Pitta can stay healthy, he could be in for a carreer year in Kubiak system. It's very TE friendly and Pitta is obviously a very good pass catcher.

 

I really hope he stays healthy.

Could you imagine if they did? We would be starting Tyrod at qb and Jimmy Smith would have been cut just to name a couple lol ;)

definitely stoked, he was a major missing piece last season, he would make the boldin loss not affect us anywhere near as much. 

 

although ive thought from day 1 that monroe is a bigger priority. fingers crossed

I feel as though I remember one person, and only one person, who predicted a deal like this would happen even after his injury first occurred last offseason.  Good deal.

I'll eat crow, but at the same time, I'll point out that at the time, they were saying that there was no way he was going to get back on the field so I was making my claim based on that scenario.

You were right on. I definitely thought he would take a short deal at the time because we didnt know that he would come back last season. Pitta playing in those final 4 games probably earned him millions.

Now I don't have to change my avatar!

Hah I had to take a closer look a while back, at first glance it looked like he was on an exercise bike lol.

But seriously, this is great news...no on to Monroe!

This is a plus but if we lose Monroe to a bidding war with the dolphins or someone else we may still be in trouble. I honestly see us keeping oher (will be cheaper, durable and serviceable) now with the rumors of Monroe circling and then drafting a lineman early. Smith may come back but I also think so will McClain at a lower cap friendly contract.
