#Saints made Jimmy Graham the highest-paid TE in the @NFL. It’s a 4-year deal worth $40M with between $20M and $21M guaranteed, per source https://twitter.com/RapSheet/status/489043111239098368

Jimmy Smith will get no discipline but Ben got disciplined for no charges? You read that text of the Conduct policy... I can't see how what Ben did fits those parameters, most of which are geared to charges being filed and a disposition implying guilt being the result.

You want him to be busted for this, B2B?

Seriously?

This whole thing smacks of the Pouncey threads. We don't like Jimmy Smith because he's a Raven, so throw the book at him.

Even though from what I can see, he did nothing really wrong here. And what he did was WAY less serious than what we pretty much know Ben did, even if no charges were filed (and no, I am not saying he assaulted the girl...he pretty much did have drunken sex with her in the bathroom, though).

And if suspending Ben was a mistake, let's not keep duplicating the mistake by wrongfully spending others just because Ben was suspended.

I do not think he is healthy or other teams would jump at him.

Because Ben, like most conduct decisions, was purely PR driven. Ben got 6 games (reduced to 4) because that's what the mob, errr media, demanded.

A couple of points...more shitty journalism on Mike Pouncey. They state they don't know if he has passed his psych evaluation. The witness's in the recent case won't be deposed until later this week. Hard to imagine this being the end of it.

I won't link it up due to all the bullshit that other Steeler site has published...but apparently we have made an offer to J Finely...but he is looking for big coin as he has 10 million insurance payout on the way if he misses the first four games of this season.

That's a crazy policy that would allow him to sit on or turn-down offers to collect. I saw the argument might go that it destroyed his FA value, but that premium would have had to be huge to write that policy for a guy facing career-ending surgery. Although it's certainly possible someone screwed up and is now looking for a job.

I said it years ago, Ben would be the FIRST and LAST player to be suspended based on accusations alone.

I was right.

Mike Pouncey and twin brother Maurkice are among those who will be sued for their alleged role in a South Beach nightclub incident early Saturday, according to a publicist hired by the purported victims’ attorney. http://www.miamiherald.com/2014/07/15/4 ... rylink=cpy


Although not named in the police report Maurkice is being named in a new lawsuit. The individuals involved are going to test the Florida court system? Hmmm...
