@atvcar Chip sits back in his chair, relieved at Howie's confidence in his plan. In between puffs he reminisced, "When I was at Oregon, I thought Phil Knight and the boosters were bad, " and then exclaimed, finger pointed, "But you, Howard Roseman, are one cold sonnuvabitch."

Here's my theory on what happened:


Howie Roseman, hearing DeSean wanted his contract revised, calls him in to meet at the Novacare Complex. They both sit down across from each other at the negotiating table.


DJax: "Hey Howie, can I get some more guaranteed money in my contract? I saw you were doling out to some other guys and I think that I'm deserving."


Rosebud: "Well, DeSean, we could do that, but you'd have to agree to restructure and take a smaller total salary every year. We need cap flexibility to remain competitive in future years."


DJax: "No way, I just had a career year. I'm not reducing my salary, not even in exchange for more guaranteed money. A lot of other teams would probably pay me more overall AND more guaranteed."


Rosebud: "You want to test that theory? I bet they wouldn't. I'll tell you what, you can either agree to restructure now, we'll give you more guaranteed, but less overall, or we'll shop you, and see if anybody even wants to take you on with your current contract. And after that, just to prove to prove it to you even further, we'll eliminate the need of any team to give up a draft pick: we'll release you outright. Go ahead and see if you can make as much yearly AND get more guaranteed money. I guarantee you, you won't."


DJax: "I think I would. There are plenty of teams that would pay top dollar for a player like me."


Rosebud: "Not in today's NFL. GMs are smarter and more cautious than ever before. And the ones that do like to play loose with money can't, they've already spent themselves into a hole. So you go ahead and see what you can fetch. When reality slaps you in the face, you'll come right back to Uncle Howie and I'll be waiting, right here, with a copy of Riley Cooper's contract with your name substituted into it. You'll take it. You'll sign it. And you'll like it."


Howie then gets up from the table where DeSean looks dumbfounded, he is absolutely in awe of Howie calling his bluff. Howie gives him the kiss of death on the forehead and exits the room. He walks into his office and closes the door. Sitting down, he picks up the phone and presses the button labeled "J. Kempski" on his speed dial. He spends 5 minutes straining his voice to simulate the desperation with which he supposedly wants to be rid of DeSean. Jimmy eats it up, letting his desire to be the first to break the story override his skepticism as to why Howie would be so open about this.


Hanging up the phone, he is immediately questioned by the man sitting across from him, "Are you sure this is a good idea? He's not irreplaceable, nobody is, but he's very useful to me."


Howie, knowing that he has effectively destroyed any possibility of a trade by visibly marking DeSean as a lamb for slaughter, now pulled out a manila folder labelled "DeSean Character Assassination" as well as a small and ornate box. Peeking out of the folder were documents detailing invented gang affiliations, as well as an invoice from the "contractor" he had hired to rob DeSean's home, except written out to DeSean and not him. All of it was intended for phase II of his plan. He pulled two fine cigars from the box, handing one to to the man across from him, reassuring him as they both lit up, "Don't worry Chip, he'll be back and the same DeSean you knew before. But perhaps he'll be a little more...humble," he paused while taking a long puff while leaning back in his chair, putting his feet up on his desk, "and it'll all be at half the price."

I'll roll wiff Bri on this...Primarily a PR/team image issue because DeSean is into some things that we don't know about...Not believing the money argument...I think that if that really was the primary issue, they would've gotten something, even if not much great, for him...Teams wiff space will still trade for a good, yet overpaid, player...But nobody wants to trade for a potential blight on their precious brand...

@atvcar I never said Chip's offense DEPENDS on DJax, just that his skills make him an excellent fit for the offense...I have said before that every player has a price: none are untouchable...I stand by that belief...There is a price for DeSean and if it was met by another team I would get over him leaving...Problem is, my idea of the exchange we should get for him is higher than some of the rumors that have been floated around...

First it was the rumor that we're trading DJax...Then it was the rumor that we're not looking for a lot, just trying to get him out...Now it is that we're considering cutting him...What's next?...We're going to trade him wiff several of our upcoming first round picks for a conditional 2039 7th rounder that will probably never materialize?...

I really don't see how DeSean "isn't a fit"...Sure, Chip prefers larger receivers, but ask him what his strategy is and he'll say "stretch the field"...DeSean is an ideal fit for that...

1) The only way DeSean gets cut is if he does something extremely public and embarrassing to the team. While his judgment may be occasionally questionable, I think that it's unlikely. 2) While I wouldn't rule out a trade, I don't see how you call anything less than a 2nd round pick an acceptable return for a 27 year old receiver coming off a career year that offers unique field-stretching ability, and even that is pushing it.
