    If we can agree that Mid Valley Sports has the absolute right to determine what gets posted here, I’m guessing that the NFL should have a smidgeon of say-so about the way its representatives behave. If a guy wants to rant and rave about his hot causes, he should do it on his own time and his own dime. Again, we’ll wait to see how much of that $10 million gets spent on spreading the good word.

    That’s less than 10 million before the lawyers take their cuts. Then you have to minus taxes.
    So the rumored 60-80 million actually worked out to less than 3 each.
    Don’t blow it all on PIG socks……

    Eager to see how much of that $10 million Kaepernick and Reed spend on righting the world’s wrongs. Hard to pay for something you used to get free.

    #2 That’s about $10 million too much, especially for the player that rejected the original contract that was offered to him by the 49’s. He was the sole person responsible for his situation. Why reward him for anything that happened after that fact?
    #6 Don’t understand a contract extension for a player that hasn’t played a single game for you yet. It will be nice to only have to see this Dodger killer 4 times in April and 3 times in August plus the playoffs.
