I think Tannehill is a bad sample for this question. He has continued to be a part of the team and help out wherever possible. He hasn't stepped away like some other players have and is basically a coach at this point.

^ The Verizon deal is really difficult to evaluate. It isn't just an extension of a current deal, but a completely new deal that carves out a new market segment. The old deal only allowed Verizon to stream in-market games to mobile phones of Verizon customers. The new deal expands that to basically anyone with a tablet or a phone, covering all games that aren't exclusive to Sunday Ticket (in that market), including preseason, playoffs and the Super Bowl. Some reports even indicate that ANY web-connected device (including TVs) is covered by the deal (e.g. Variety):

"live-stream gridiron action to any mobile, web and connected-TV device nationwide under a new five-year pact with the league."


That would be a shocker, though, and I cannot see how the other rights holders would agree to this, so unless this starts being reported by everyone else, I would consider it very likely to be incorrect.

Additionally, Verizon gains access to certain non-game VoD content, including highlights and even original content.

Verizon does lose their streaming exclusivity status, although details on this are not available.

Overall, the deal broadens the number of devices that can receive NFL games while unlikely to hurt ratings among traditional rights-holders. For that Verizon is paying $400 million a year for 5 years (compared to $250 million a year for the old deal). In comparison, the NFL currently rakes in about $7 billion a year on its TV deals, so this is still small potatoes.

Even with these so called "declining ratings".....the NFL signs record deal with Verizon

Jimmy G is now 2-0 as the 49ers starter, so it's pretty obvious that San Francisco will never lose another game again...forever. 

I only stopped dancing in the streets long enough to post...

Dammiit.  Now, instead of Dolphin talk, I'm wondering if many here are avid listeners of the Star Wars Minute podcast.

To me, the more interesting question is whether an owner like Jerry Jones somehow has SB rings for SBVI and SBXII (wins from before he bought the team).
I find it highly unlikely that Dan Snyder does not have a SB ring that he wears regularly.

Ok, point taken, I just wondered if NFL decides since they give out the rings.

The Marlins only owe us $30 Million if Stanton doesn't opt out and there's a solid chance he does not. Still has a massive contract ahead of him and I don't know if anyone wants to give a 31 year old a better offer than the contract he is currently on.

That aside, Jeter and the Marlins handled this so poorly. I don't even know if it's Jeter as he may just be a face, don't know what power he welds. But, they announced publicly they were look9ng to trade Stanton BEFORE they spoke with him, not even asking his preferred destinations. Once he vetoed the Giants and Cardinals, it was a one team race. Still no excuse to not even get a Top 5 prospect as the Yankees have a loaded farm system. Castro was a salary dump, not a great piece for Florida.

Just a disaster all around for the franchise. Might as well have just put him on waivers with this return.

Yes you offer the ring and yes he  takes the ring, why is it even up for debate.....jesus some of you people.

He opened training camp as the #1 QB and blew out his knee. He has sat in every QB meeting all year and did what he could to help Cutler get up to speed. HE would get a ring in this crazy dumb-ass scenario that we know won't happen
