Ireland Contracting Nightly Sports Call: August 18, 2019 (Pt. 2)


WELCOME BACK. IT DOESN’T GET OLD WITH ANTONIO BROWN. MORE DRAMA GOING ON IN OAKLAND. THIS TIME- IT SOUNDS LIKE THEY WILL PUT THEIR FOOT DOWN. HE IS EITHER ALL IN OR ALL OUT ? WHAT DOES THAT MEAN THEY ARE GOING TO CUT HIM? THEY POTENTIALLY COULD HIM ON ONE OF THOSE NONFOOTBALL SUSPENDED LISTS. THEY COULD NOT PAY HIM BECAUSE HE’S NOT SHOWING UP TO PRACTICE. THIS IS MY THEORY. IT HAPPENED LAST YEAR. I THINK HE IS DOING WHATEVER HE CAN TO GET OUT OF TRAINING CAMP PRACTICE. THAT IS MY THEORY SO HE IS COMING UP WITH THESE STUPID THINGS. WE SAW THE INJURY IN THE ELEMENT NAME DESPITE HIM ANOTHER ONE. THIS IS A GUY THAT HAS A REPUTATION FOR BEING SUCH A HARD WORKER. THAT IS WHAT DROVE ME CRAZY. HIS PERSONAL FAN FACE AND PEOPLE THROUGH THE WORK REPUTATION. HE IS A HARD WORKER WHEN HE FEELS LIKE WORKING BUT HE SKIPS MEETINGS AND PRACTICE AND GAMES . HE IS ON HIS PHONE DURING MEETINGS. EVENTUALLY WHEN PUSH COMES TO SHOVE HE WILL SHOW UP BECAUSE AS A GENERAL RULE YOU ARE CHECKING YOUR BANK ACCOUNT AT WORK UNLESS YOU ARE WORRIED ABOUT NOT HAVING MONEY IN IT. I DON’T THINK YOU LOOK AT IS TO SAY YOU HAVE ENOUGH ESPECIALLY AFTER THE HOT AIR BALLOON RIDES AND MULTIPLE LAWSUITS HE IS FACING. HE IS LOOKING TO SEE IF HE HAS ENOUGH MONEY TO COVER WHATEVER BILL IS NEXT YEAR AND HERE’S MY QUESTION, I KNOW HE IS MAKING A TON OF MONEY. DOES HE MAKE 20 MILLION A YEAR? HE HAS BEEN SPENDING $500,000 A MONTH ON JEWELRY. HE IS GOING TO RUN OUT. IT WILL RUN OUT SOON. THAT IS WHEN YOU WILL SEE HIM BACK AT TRAINING CAMP BECAUSE HE WON’T LOSE OUT ON 50 MILLION. LET’S GO OUT TO JERRY. I WAS GOING TO REITERATE ON ANTONIO BROWN. THE RAIDERS ORGANIZATION, THEY ARE NOT TOO HAPPY WITH HIM. I THINK WHEN IT COMES TO COLLECTIVE THERE SHOULD BE A PROVISION IN THEIR THAT USING ANTONIO BROWN AS AN EXAMPLE. GIVE YOU THAT SIGNING BONUS AND IF YOU DON’T COME HERE ON TIME YOU HAVE TO FORFEIT THAT $35 MILLION. I WILL TAKE THAT A DIFFERENT DIRECTION, I GET WHAT YOU ARE SAYING, BUT THE SMART THING TO DO IS DO IT LIKE THE NATIONAL HOCKEY LEAGUE WHICH IS GUARANTEED CHOP CONTRACTS FOR 2 OR THREE AND GO OVER THE YEARS OF THE DEAL AND HAVE OPTIONS ON THE BACKEND. YOU CAN’T RENEGOTIATE A DEAL ONCE IT IS SIGNED AND THAT STOPS THEM FROM RUNNING OUT OF THEIR DEAL. THAT IS HOW THEY SHOULD DO IT. THE GUARANTEED MONEY THE SIGNING BONUS I LIKE IT AND THE PLAYERS LIKE IT AND YOU RUN INTO PROBLEMS LIKE ANTONIO BROWN ONLY A FEW PLAYERS. HE HAS THAT MONEY. AND YOU CAN GO THROUGH ARBITRATION TO GET THE SIGNING BONUS BACK. WHAT I’M WORRIED ABOUT IS HOW THE NFL AS 18 PROTECT THEMSELVES FROM THE TREATMENT THAT YOU SEE FROM GUYS LIKE THAT AND NOW THE KELLY IT GOING OUT ON A VALID CONTRACT. I HAVE TO MY QUESTIONS. -HE LOOKED GOOD LAST NIGHT AND THE PIRATES HAVE TO GET RID OF- THANK YOU. SUSPECT LET’S START WITH HODGES. I DON’T THINK SHE HAS ANY SHOT AT MAKING THE TEAM. UNLESS SOMETHING HAPPENS. IF HE DIDN’T HAVE A FUNNY NICKNAME NO ONE WOULD KNOW WHO HE IS. HE IS THE FOURTH ARM. I DON’T THINK THEY GIVE UP ON HIM. THE ONLY REASON HE HAS THAT GOOD PLAY IN TRAINING CAMP MATTERS IS NOT IF HE PLAYS, IT IS IF HE PLAYS WELL ENOUGH THAT THEY DEEM ONE OF THE OTHER GUYS EXPENDABLE TO THE POINT THAT I DON’T KNOW THEY TALK TO TAMPA ABOUT ONE OF THEIR THREE AVAILABLE TIGHT END FOR HOUSTON FOR ONE OF THEIRS AND MAKE A TRADE FOR A TIGHT END. WE KNOW THEY ARE NOT KEEPING FOUR. THEY WILL PUT HIM ON THE PRACTICE BECAUSE THEY DON’T HAVE ENOUGH REPS. THAT IS NOT GOING TO HAPPEN. THEY NEED OTHER HELP. HODGES WILL BE AROUND UNLESS SOMETHING HAPPENS WITH. I DON’T KNOW WHAT THE PIRATES DO RIGHT NOW. THEY WANT TO WIN SOME FANS BACK HOME I TO SAY IT BUT THEY MIGHT HAVE TO CLEAN HOUSE AND TRY TO IN THE FAN BASE BACK AND SAY WE WILL REBUILD AND TRUST US. THEN YOU HAVE IT IS ON THOSE GUYS AND- I DON’T HATE TO SAY IT THEY HAVE TO I NEVER LIKE TO SEE ANYONE GET FIRED. I HEARD NEAL HUNTINGTON TODAY TALKING ABOUT TRYING TO MAKE 2020 LIKE 2013. HE TOLD ME THAT BEFORE THIS YEAR, EXACTLY BEING. TELL ME WHO THEY ARE 10? WE WERE TALKING ABOUT THAT. THEY KNOW THAT UP. YOU WILL GET THEM IN THE ALL- STAR BREAK THAT IS WHAT 2013 LOOK LIKE. THEY ARE COUNTING ON THOSE YOUNG GUYS. I DON’T WHO WILL START IN THAT ROTATION. I DON’T KNOW WHICH WAY THEY WILL GO. STUCK AT 8.25 OPTION THEY HAVE TO PICK UP. IF THEY DON’T PICK IT UP WHAT WILL THEY DO SPREAD IT OUT? ARE YOU KIDDING YOURSELF THAT THEY WILL HAVE TO PICK IT UP BECAUSE CHRIS ARCHER AFTER THE DISASTER HE HAS BEEN ONE OF THE TOP THREE. WE NEED TO TAKE A BREAK. I DON’T KNOW IF HE WAS PITCHING TO THAT, WE NEED TO TAKE A BREAK. WE HAVE STAND AND WILL AND PETE
