Harvey’s Holdout Over

August 28, 2008 | by RotoRob | Comments (0)

The Jacksonville Jaguars, looking to build on a big 2007 season by shoring up a defense that was generally middling, finally agreed to terms with their first round pick, defensive end Derrick Harvey, on Wednesday.

Harvey has been holding out for the last 33 days, causing a rift between the team and agent Ken Kremer. Apparently, the stumbling block here was escalators that will pay Harvey a bonus if he played 70 per cent of the snaps. The team finally adjusted its offer, adding incentive clauses that kick in if Harvey plays 55 to 75 per cent of the snaps.

That’s a good thing for the rook, considering that after missing training camp and the entire preseason to date, he’ll likely be in no condition to handle a starting role out of the gate. However, the Jags believe that as the season progresses, he’ll become a bigger and bigger part of the defensive scheme.

The deal is for five years and includes over $17.1 million in guaranteed money, has a base package worth approximately $23.8 million and – with the incentives – could be worth over $33 million.

The Jags picked Harvey eighth overall out of Florida.

The signing of Harvey – he immediately reported to Jacksonville Wednesday to sign the deal and take his physical and could play as early as Thursday against the Redskins – removes one distraction from the Jaguar camp. But on the same day as that impasse was finally settled, it was reported that wide receiver Dennis Northcutt is being sued by his former girlfriend, a suit which alleges that Northcutt conspired to beat her up when she was four months pregnant.

Hey, what’s an NFL story without an alleged crime?

Ice Chips: Western Conference Free Agency

July 22, 2008 | by Mike Chen | Comments (3)
After reviewing the additions made by Eastern Conference teams, we now turn our attention to how the Western Conference clubs have fared during the free agency period. The Chicago Blackhawks made a big splash while admittedly overspending in terms of length and dollar amount (hey, at least they’re honest, right?). Brian Campbell leaves the Pacific coast [...]

June 28, 2008 | by RotoRob | Comments (1)
Earlier this week, we speculated on whether the exploits of Indy League pitcher Aaron Ledbetter would be enough to garner him attention from a major league organization. Well, lest you think that kind of thing never happens, the Braves have signed catcher/1B Jason Phillips (aka, Goggles Paisano) to a minor league deal, adding him to [...]

Houston, We Have a Problem

June 27, 2008 | by RotoRob | Comments (3)
Can you believe it was just three years ago that Houston was the NL Champions, representing the Senior Circuit in the 2005 World Series? Man, have things ever spiraled out of control since then. The team barely finished over .500 in 2006, and then plummeted even further last year. While they’ve shown modest improvements this season, in [...]
