Big Weirdo Posted March 13, 2006 Share Posted March 13, 2006 This is absolutely ridiculous. I would want this guy but for this much? Hell no. per PFT.com http://www.profootballtalk.com/rumormill.htm HUTCHINSON OFFER HAS MAJOR POISON PILL A league source tells us that the offer sheet signed by Seahawks guard Steve Hutchinson with the Minnesota Vikings contains a poison pill of unprecedented magnitude and significance, which is aimed at preventing Seattle from exercising its right to match the deal, pursuant to the rules applicable to transition players. Apart from a 2006 cap number that exceeds $13 million, the offer sheet contains a provision that makes the entire deal guaranteed if Hutchinson at any point becomes anything other than the highest paid player on the team. From Seattle's perspective, that's a big problem, in light of the Walter Jones contract. If the Seahawks match, Hutchinson's deal could indeed become fully guaranteed from day one.
