Here's an ESPN article mentioning it, plus its all over the internet -  USAToday, 247Sports, Washington Post, etc

Either way he could have stayed with SF. He opted out and I think that was in the 15-16mil range.

In 2017 he said he wanted 9-10mil and a chance to start, which i guess works out if its over 2-3 years, but when guys like Sanchez were signed instead of him, they all accepted the back role and 1 year for a chance to get on a roster. Maybe he should have gone that route. Sanchez took 1mil - EJ Manuel took 800,000 - he probably could have gotten more than that.  

Not trying to reboot the debate about him or the situation or whatever. just thought that if I really really really wanted to get back in to something I loved, I would find a way. I think he may just be past it all and then what damage can come from asking for crazy money...

I don't think it's about money for him.   It's about making a statement.   Money he's got, considering Nike paid him tens of millions to put him in that ad

In case anyone has time and hasn't watched the Batman vs LEGO Batman video, it's very nerdy and science-y...

Only makes me wonder exactly how strong LEGO Superman is... hmmmmm

or

LEGO Hulk.

and then the ultimate question - LEGO Hulk or LEGO Superman

I went looking and can't find anywhere that says he was looking for $20 mil. Not saying he didn't, just that I can't find any original source. Also..no chance of him making $20 million in the AAF. I don't care how controversial he is. Kaep could get a sex change, be artificially inseminated by Charles Manson and he still couldn't command that kind of salary.




pft.

Sounds like they havenít decided yet.  Me thinks it is a case of what falls in their lap.  And if Tanny is cut/traded it wonít be until after someone else is acquired.

Bit of irony but the Dolphins OC came into the job better suited to evaluate the defensive players skill set than the offense.

I don't think that every team thinks they are 1 or 2 players away, but they all try to put the best team on the field they can hoping that at some point they will have the team. I think it's a very tough thing to do to just say well blow it up and start over and I don't think every team that's not 2 players away should do that. There's absolutely NO guarantee that blowing it up and starting over will result in a better team faster then simply adding a piece or 2 every year. That's the fallacy in my opinion.

Agree with that.  But no point in keeping a very expensive vet that if this isnít your year.

Nothing  in the article said $20 million per year.  And I would agree he isnít worth $20 million per year.  But $20 million on a 3 year contract sounds like a very reasonable expectation.

I've never seen the Dolphins in the Super bowl. The first Super bowl I watched was Super bowl XX one year after the Dolphins' last appearance. Naturally I cheered for Da Bears in Super bowl XX.

Talk about bad timing to become a Dolphins fan.  The year after Mia last SB appearance and the year that NE went to its first of 11 (and counting). Should have picked the local team.

It's probably a power-play to negotiate for a lesser amount.  But they're not be buying his skill; they'd be buying his controversy, and eyeballs that came with it.
