  1. It looks like if he stays healthy and completes the entire 2019 season, Jason will have earned almost $20M in his career. Even with California taxes, that's a buttload of money.
  2. It is 3.6M for a season. However, it's likely that only a part of that is guaranteed. He may get $500k upfront but if the 49'rs later decide he can't play well enough to justify that salary, they could cut him at any time and he won't get paid whatever is remaining on the contract. He has to play the entire season to get paid. If he gets hurt in practice or a game and can't play, he still gets paid but if he just has some nagging injuries and is slower or less mobile than he used to be, they can cut him and not have to pay him for the whole season. Basically, he needs to perform to get paid. That's the way the NFL works. Baseball is always guaranteed money, in the NFL, only the signing bonus is guaranteed. That's the Reader's Digest version for you.
  3. As long as he doesn't get hurt again and makes the team. I doubt much of it is guaranteed (although I could be wrong about that).
  4. https://twitter.com/chrisvannini/status/1107476628651810817?s=21 LT announcement. Could it be a statue? Helped you out with the tweet~PD
  5. A good read if you can find it is "But Not for Love" by Bud Shrake. In part, it is a thinly fictionalized recounting of Dan and Bud and their friends time together in Fort Worth before they all hit it big and moved to NYC. The cover of the book is actually a painting of the house Dan and his wife June lived in back in those days. The house is still there on Sunset Terrace just west of downtown Fort Worth but east of the Trinity. If you can't tell, I've always been semi-obsessed with Dan and Bud and Gary Cartwright and those guys. https://books.google.com/books?id=GwQZHnnaAIwC&pg=PA187&lpg=PA187&dq=But+not+for+love&source=bl&ots=JbFZDKTMiy&sig=ACfU3U0p_TZAXFnfJppWBAPLbFkHpapQfw&hl=en&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwijvdOu7_LgAhVMmK0KHYTFACoQ6AEwCXoECAgQAQ#v=onepage&q&f=false https://www.google.com/maps/@32.7428916,-97.3438788,3a,60y,128.34h,88.98t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1s2NSwqnXyMtQbc3q5yN-cNQ!2e0!7i16384!8i8192
  6. Some good articles about Dan. The SI obit has links to 4 of Dan's pieces that were included in the collection of their 60 best articles in their first 60 years. https://www.texasmonthly.com/articles/sportswriter-high-2/ https://www.si.com/tech-media/2019/03/08/sports-writer-dan-jenkins-dies-89
  7. Kenrich. Although he signed with another agent.
  8. The first commit!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Jahdae Barron, corner from Pflugerville Conally. No stars, not even a profile yet but apparently the coaches love his game.
  9. I'm not surprised. I found an old article about his dad when Filikitonga committed to the Frogs. Dad was a 200 lbs LB and FB in high school and grew into a D-II All-American 300 lbs. defensive tackle at ACU. I don't think this is the same article but it has a lot of the same info. Chris Thomsen recruited the dad when he was at ACU. Looks like there is a little brother who is huge.already too. https://www.reporternews.com/story/sports/college/acu/football/2017/11/29/filikitonga-looks-back-time-acu-football-team/904231001/
  10. SA team's stats. Seems like Aaron Green needs more playing time at 5.2 yds a carry and 9.5 yds per catch receiving. https://aaf.com/san-antonio-commanders/stats
  11. I think we call those throw up's, not throwbacks.
  12. We took a lot of L's in those unis. I don't think we will ever wear them while GP is the coach. He's way too superstitious.
  13. Former OU WR Malcom Kelly is the new WR coach. The dude was an All-American at OU and a 2nd round draft pick of the Redskins. He's been at A&M Commerce as a GA and then at UH for 2 seasons. Seems like a home run hire. https://247sports.com/college/tcu/Article/Sources-TCU-to-hire-Malcolm-Kelly-as-outside-WR-coach-129482907/
  14. Tanner Brock and Davion Pierson as well. Remember Tanner making a block without his helmet on a punt return?
  15. If this kid plays football half as good as he wrestles, he's going to be an All-American.
  16. Andy has a lot of $$$ to show for it. He'll be okay either way.
  17. I agree. He's had a long run in Cincy but it might be time to move on if they don't turn it around this season.
  18. They need to get the ball to Bane more at the end of games instead of relying on ARob. Bane is a much better shooter.
  19. Kenny Hustle is taking the NBA by storm. https://www.nba.com/pelicans/news/undrafted-pelicans-rookie-kenrich-williams-making-big-impact
  20. Nope. He's a graduate or will be in May. He has 2 seasons of eligibility left too.
