From Mike G's story when we originally signed him
SIGNING BONUS: $8.5 million
2011: $1m (guaranteed)
2012: $3m ($2m guaranteed)
WORKOUT BONUSES: $250,000 each year from 2012-15
Quick math shows that works out to these salary-cap numbers:
Cutting Baas would accelerate the remaining 6.8 million of his bonus to this year.
Baas's salary for this year is 3 million - and two million of that is guaranteed.
Thus, it would COST us almost $6 million to cut Baas
Baas does not become 'cuttable' (meaning we actually save money by cutting him) until 2014.
Okay... what if we cut.... Rolle?
but he sure is overpaid. Yikes.
even if it is only til 2014
That is credible say Baas might be cut?
i wish i got paid 250,000 to go to the gym
another idiotic trope that keeps popping up around here.
Baas has crossed the minds of the people who have the power to cut him, so I wouldn't worry.
jacobs to TE
trade osi, kiwanuka to DE
on how many games he misses next year?
don't you let the people that got us to the Super Bowl worry about it?
snapping several times over Eli's head..
Baas (and the OL) played fairly damn well down the stretch except for the 49er game. It's not just my opinion, but Jerry Reese said the same thing.
Remember how we were all worrying about Wilfork? Boothe and Baas kept him quiet.
could Baas because he sucks and we need cap room.
Cutting Baas would make our cap situation WORSE!
he'll get at least one more season
start that shit from scratch, yo. Better to cut guys a year too early than a year too late. I read that in a fortune cookie, once.
but he did very well. Hopefully he can be healthy and play well for a whole season because as is noted on this thread we are pretty well cap-committed to the guy.
He finally got healthier later on and he was excellent in the Super Bowl against Wilfork. People need to have some fucking patience.
did a great job when he was assigned to Wilfork, Very impresive.
Baas, we'll judge him at the end of the 12' season, this would be reasonable, yes?
and being paid alot of money. We really shouldn't need to wait for him to perform. If he was a rookie or 2nd year player, then that is different.
pretty much the entire Super Bowl was for the BS holding call.
And Wilfork is a monster.
Baas will be fine.
The coaches can't just wave a magic wand here.
comes in and performs pretty well and is making ALOT less money, it reflects poorly on Bass, fair or unfair. He obviously can't control injuries (for the most part), but it's a bummer for him.
Wilfork nearly every snap. No idea why the Ravens didn't do that.
The Pats had little threat on the pass rush, and with doubling Wilfork it made Mark Anderson look like Michael Strahan.
Only with some here on BBI was he ever in danger of being cut. Finally healthier, he did well in the Playoffs and sorta made Wilfork his bitch in the SB..
I'd much rather have Baas and Boothe than just throw Boothe at C, put Petrus at LG and have zero depth.
but he was banged up
he deserves another year
and was not that great the second year, but then turned out to be a good player
like Canty, Baas is learning a new position. Spent most of his career in SF as a guard
Came up through college at center, is a natural center, and finally played well his last year in SF when playing... center.
to have a conversation with people who were going to cut Baas is fruitless. Talk to a telephone pole instead.
You'll get better feedback.
And certainly the year after...if his play doesn't improve. Baas' presence on the roster should not preclude them from drafting an interior lineman, even early if it's the BPA.
next year he might not get cut in 2013. For him to be on the roster in 2013 he's gonna have to rework his deal.
There is NO F'N way we pay him 10.45 mil in 2013. You can take that to the bank!
Giants need a back-up center. Hopefully they one pick-up via the draft or free agency
we aren't paying him 10.45 in 2013, you need to re-read the OP
he's right about one thing.
We won't pay Baas 10.45 million in 2013.
add up his signing bonus and his salary for 2013 and that's what you come too.
He'll either have too redo his deal or he'll be sent packing. GMen won't pay that for 2013.
my bad....I was adding both of those together.
That's what you get when you don't use your glasses and it's late in the day at work!
The notion that people on this board think that the Giants would trust an unproven rookie C to line up in front of Eli are laughable.
The team has a QB playing on the highest level. There is zero chance a rookie would be starting at this stage of Eli's career.
What has Konz done to warrant this "great" label.
the Pats, for example, were comfortable with Nate Solder starting 13 games for the Pats. Brady is older, and less mobile than Eli and has already lost an entire season to injury.
If the Giants FO and coaches felt he was the best option a rookie could absolutely start on the Giants o-line. Especially considering the beating he took against some teams last year (SF, the Eagles) couldn't be much worse.
interior OL after DeCastro. Not many are suggesting he would start in 2012, but Snee started as a rookie.Let's hope Baas improves because if you don't think Eli took more hits in 2011 than ever before, then we watched different games.
