With Patrick Peterson the corner on a five year contract extension. And his deal with the pro bowlers were seventy million dollars 48 million guaranteed. It's a five year deal what you need to know here it makes him the highest paid corner. In all of football beating Richard Sherman who decide his deal which is four years 56 million dollars. And Richard Sherman of Patrick Peterson talent back and forth on Twitter what Patrick Peterson said. You mad brow and -- he's in L Mayo. And it had average returns -- no I'm not -- any tweeting out a picture of it is Super Bowl rings a funny banter back and forth. But pat Peterson well worth the money we're starting to see a trend in the NFL. Where your stories seem a deep sense of players Earl Thomas. Joseph Haden you look at pat Peterson Richard chairman. Guys split the leaked cover guys or -- turning to make some serious money in the NFL yet. Because you look at the running back position for example you have running back by committee nowadays big time running backs for franchises don't really exist a lot of you got two and three running backs. So the money leaves there wide receivers those are very hit and miss positions. And personnel you're not gonna give a ton of money -- receiver if he hasn't proven long Javanese -- look at the -- the side of the ball. If you got a great front seven and in defense of back you wanna give the money to those guys to me. If you like you Richard Sherman more than Patrick Peterson -- you wanna go Peterson over -- I don't really care about that covers these and I first losing Peterson's a better player. But I'm also just kind of excited for this time that were in in football where you can. Nowadays its eighth day today you know you have these athletic skill guys that are forced to -- -- Patrick Peterson could probably play slot wide -- Ali yeah you get good at running back wide receiver hybrid that can do the end around and run plays like that we don't know if he will be in the future but he could be. But he's playing cornerback he's he's got six wind. He shuts down your 200 pounds these guys are playing man on man coverage they're pressing their handling the wide receivers -- as -- as well as we've ever seen since Deion Sanders and Charles Woodson. To me this is just -- it's an exciting time to be a football fan because it's not just one sided anymore with the athletes in where they're playing. You've got athletes superstar yes superstar athletes by the way. On both sides of the ball Patrick Peterson well worth the money he's bringing -- special teams he's a lock down corner. And to me he's one of the top five athletes all around in the NFL well. It is -- to have kind of the transformation and look a lot of this started back in the day with -- when he first came up -- the the transformation from kind of deal because it you always thought a wide receivers his record Oakland divas on the team -- thrown the ball and roll and some that was obviously that. The main factor in the happened to me it's almost shifting to the defense of backside that you get these guys that are constantly bickering and having a conversation. Over who's the best DB in the enemy is said everywhere that it's a friendly rivalry to -- between Peterson and German everybody wants to be considered the best of their profession and I've no problem with. Either gaggle of back and forth we talked about the Crabtree one was Sherman. Where there's a little more animosity involved in that argument and who knows exactly what that stems from those guys clearly don't like each other. The only argument and that bothers me in terms that we talk about Peterson vs Sherman and it goes affluent Sherman -- -- out today it's a Super Bowl ring and that you have a bright and bragging rights in terms of -- world champion you are Super Bowl champion. But nobody can make the argument to me that if you switched out those two guys have you put Patrick Peterson on Seattle and you put Sherman. On Arizona you can't tell me the sea hawks don't win a Super Bowl without Richard Sherman and switching in the Patrick Peters he's -- enabled got a very parable. The numbers -- make the argument for Richard Sherman because you can look up and down the stat sheet. Got more interceptions a lower completion percentage against stand less touchdowns against him. They go up and out of it and it got like Peterson we'll come back -- saying he only plays a third of the field he stays on the same side of the field the entire gaming as a follow a number one wide receiver around. And that that -- it was Seattle's defense scheme so I don't feel OK when he just simply a Sherman because that's just a defense system that they play. But to -- -- -- breaks as well to me it's Peterson is the right answer here because of his athletic ability because he to meet. Is just -- he is that the definition of a freak athlete of a guy that you could put anywhere on the football field. And he could do it all and is not a knock at all against a -- by Richard Sherman but he is a guy that he helps you in the kicking game -- we talked to a. A sports guy down in Arizona earlier this week up brands of France about potentially putting him more on offense playing him as a slot wide receiver finding other ways to utilize him. So we need to -- can affect the game and far more ways than just to Richard German albeit Richard Sherman. A fantastic defense to back we -- member of the play in the NFC title game. But give me the guy that has more raw athletic ability got you can kind of use in different parts of the field because we do know that these guys run out of gas at some point or another. Patrick Peterson getting seven million dollars noticing that night I find interesting in these deals is that the amount of guaranteed money is continuing to go up and up and up in these deals. When they're setting records the record setting deal but it's also Patrick Peterson plays a violent position and he plays a position where it's really really easy to fall off quickly. And he's making 48 million guarantee -- and Richard Sherman is along those lines as well where he signing a 56 million dollar deal what most of that is guaranteed to -- with Joseph Hayden of the Cleveland Browns. You're starting to CL a rising guaranteed money. With these guys annuals you will start to see that more and more I might I would imagine that they'd put something in the next collective bargaining agreement worked. You've got some sort of guarantee but you've got to have a certain percentage of the contract guaranteed. But that is a trend that you will continue to see in the NFL you side today again. With Patrick Peterson getting in record setting deal as especially in the guaranteed portion of things we talked to John -- of 957 the game our sister station. Donny DiFrancesco he covers the raiders and the -- down there obviously he does that raiders pregame show we told us a couple of things about their potential of their ability to move. As they're being courted. By a San Antonio -- bring some of those comments back and what is the possibility again we revisit this conversation a lot it seems depressing as a sports fan in Oregon. We must might never -- -- face the reality that we're never going to get. Eight professional sports team definitely not an NFL team will discuss that next right here. On Canadian fans and you know it's. An. Increased capital. And you received some. And fourth third and sprayed his served up by -- Buffalo Wild Wings on ESPN's Sports Radio 1080 of program. -- -- And we text John -- earlier in the program and you give us a preview of the San Francisco 49ers he -- that conversation it's up continue to stand dot com our podcast Iraqi by centuries. But he also had this to say about the Oakland Raiders and their potential of moving out of Oakland and possibly to -- Antonio. I've talked to Mark Davis about this very thing and I didn't get a chance yesterday that he just wanted to release a statement. About it that he did take the product backed up on this whole thing yet a lot of people that aired just looking -- As a leverage because what happened yesterday is that PA's. Finalized a ten year lease agreement could dump. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- They can get out a lot of times the raiders stopped fighting him like a lot of cities especially California. Oakland is probably the most broke all of those cities cannot begin any kind of support or or monies from. From the CD. Soul when you look at the city either right you're not getting a whole lot of support but it is a -- You've got to establish fan base you can move that damaged forever via interstate raiders are one of those organizations for their fans February as -- yes but boy you really it's Antonio. They you have money there that you have oil money -- -- pumping you and sponsor Valero is a big intended the exact tie us guys like that that you've got Valero there you got a bunch of other big oil companies you do have companies there's Santonio as the same sizes Portland from the population perspective I think Portland -- a little bit bigger and just barely 2.4 to 2.3 -- yes sockets and it's exactly. But it just every time this conversation comes up it just it's more and more deflating. For the Portland and the organs sports. It really is because the -- that this is and is one talked about this is basically a situation or Oakland is trying to put pressure they want a new stadium deal I don't expect them to leave local anytime soon though there at least at that stadium is up after this season. Other try to do as they're gonna go around as one -- from city to city and they're gonna talk with different people in different city officials and just put as much pressure as they possibly can on. It's even frustrating that us is Portland now it will probably never gonna get an NFL team mentally anybody's gonna sit here and argue elsewhere you know otherwise. But it's at least frustrating that we can't even be one of those like flirtation cities or at least Burleson. Next thing at least bring Oakland up here MR Davis up here and haven't -- with with some city officials about where they could put -- stadium. And some ideas it just you're not even to that point yet and to me. It's frustrating we talked about this a time -- number there was the links and said the raiders can be looking at Portland and wallets in T Alexander say yes 671 hurdle yet that your panned out but. You know we talked about it it's frustrating because. You know I as it adds that somebody who's grown up in this city is somebody who's lived in this city almost my entire life. I hate the distinction of being kind of have my minor league market if you're we have the blazers and I -- the blazers we all over the team -- fans and team. But that's all you got -- September's here is what it's nothing against the other sports that you don't have another major sporting franchise here it's it's frustrating because Portland could easily supported. The whole argument about corporate dollars it just doesn't make any sense to meet you can find a way to make it work the fan support would be great whether it's a baseball team hockey team or an NFL team. They would all work we just don't have people in the city that are willing to go out on a limb and in and do what needs to be done to get that. The yield on BA really is unfortunate because the only thing a woman wants is she wants to know she's pretty she's actually she's got solid lineups I tell me about it Friday with a man I just wanna know that we're capable of having you know -- sports franchise but. Like a lot of people in the city we all know the biggest -- to mean a thing holds up the most. Politicians paid the politicians stop this thing it's not dollars not corporate money. I hate when people use that game where he went on that ran her legs don't like when people bring that up because they don't know -- yet they heard -- somewhere and they you know they -- fifteen years ago when people were tiny amount that -- that would that are because it's lazy. To me I I just I hate the fact that we don't. We don't have people representing our city. That I think is. Lined up right with sports fans mentality we've seen with the blazers how how -- a lucrative that can be for the city. Weeks were seen it with the timbers they're selling out every single game yet how -- bars and restaurants around that -- like have exact their food and I don't care what sport it is I've resigned the fact is probably not -- the NFL ever but baseball hockey doesn't matter to me it just being nice. To have politicians in office that sees the need for C where sports fans are weighing in on eight. Whether girl boy a he would -- doesn't matter everybody loves watching sports games. To me I would like politicians to get more behind the idea. But again this is something that we've been talking about for daddy feels like many years now look at it as it might not ever change -- and fortunate part blunt also not very optimistic about the city of local. They may be without a team period beat the raiders going to get a move somewhere. Orders regarding a intentions known that they're gonna moved its efforts should go. And that would alleviate which would be Smart because they've got most states 81 home date I think they would focus on the -- to try to keep them navigate or go to San Jose excel. It complete map I think right now settled there is it to leverage play at security here that raiders going to. That this city and that city until they can try to get something done Antonia makes sense but I I think -- not I -- It's a tough situation down in the -- were removed from it. But you do elect Obama not that removed from the the we follow the scene down there but yeah. And forehead Oakland to have that many professional teams and is not invest in them at all it is not a -- that -- team like a word we just talked about. How lucky we'd feel if we had another sports team they've got three of them. And ladies don't take care of insight will -- broke. Traders yeah. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- There are things you can do to renovate that it just you you cannot split which is funny 2014 is the city we look at them they still split a stadium. Ridiculous you know what's funny about it the most is you look at the most successful last couple of seasons I know the warriors a connect coming on a little bit but the Oakland days of pretty much been the most successful franchise there for awhile now -- And they're the one team that just doesn't care in the resigned the fact they don't care the plane in the crap and -- they -- they are right they -- -- -- in their locker room there and only so it is good to see you up exist they're cheapening embryos to be easy do you need other teams who wanted to -- achievement play in the -- is that Cinderella at that -- -- Oakland roots. I one other story -- -- NFL today a lot actually a lot of story lines in the NFL what we haven't got a chance to talk about that much. As the Dallas Cowboys have signed Pro Bowl offensive tackle Tyrod and submit to an eight year extension. Through 20/20 three making the total value was contract. Worth nearly a 110 million dollars. Forty million that is guaranteed you'll also get a ten million dollar signing bonus the Dallas Cowboys believe he is their cornerstone. And their future of their franchise he is. 24 in December is only 23 years old right now at a young guy and very young guy he moved to left tackle last year. He was the ninth overall pick in in the draft. -- this is a good idea for the tabloids they don't have a whole lot of these over the last him for the years but you need a strong left tackle and Tony -- is a guy. Who is just got actually beat up the last couple years so anything you can do to help protect him. It's a Smart move for that -- Dez Bryant's -- deal is up after this year I believe so they're gonna have to re sign him to a long term extension at some point as well. Which is not going to be -- if they wanna keep him around. But this is a Smart move for the cowboys to be when you're paying Tony Romo as much money as you're paying -- when you're expecting him. To you know to deliver results -- year out come up in the clutch you have to give them an offensive line. And it offensive line also leads to a better running game which at times they have struggled with the last couple years -- you know it's a Smart thing if you're if you're the Dallas Cowboys play yet I get. Paid to have your blind side protected that's what they did and I'm curious how they pay their players going port and one other note that the NFL the Miami Dolphins are putting a Credo on their T shirts -- the book that says mark Credo. I MA Miami Dolphins. And it follows these are the players up while they said it was coined by the players the togetherness and how together they are. On the back of their sheer there's a list of ten sayings. A starting with I Miami dolphin and then India won -- -- so I will never quit I will never accept defeat I -- professional. I'll always place the team first like these just -- is -- means absolutely nothing. The one it's getting a lot of play though is if I see something rivals say something. I commit to call it as it is which is a direct -- -- at a dead in cotton you know Jonathan Martin. It's fantastic -- this is fantastic first that they're just stupid for bringing this issue back up I mean everybody in my I mean I know I had when we talk about a bit earlier in the show I'd completely forgot about it until you started treating the headline. And I think I need goes nowhere to be found his sign with anybody. Martin's now in San Francisco where he's going to be a back up -- sounds like so nobody's talking about him recovering now he's fitting in that locker room. This was a story that -- guided an eating you always out those kind of come up Michael sands kind of the most recent line. Donald Sterling tonight when it comes to mind the Albanian case this bullying issue. There's always story lines -- just they exist for far too long and you get a couple weeks into what you look at is say why are we spending so much time talking about the social issue has nothing to do the Miami Dolphins are relevant nobody cares and I think I need or -- and when you spend all that time continue to talk about it. This is one of those few ones that actually did die it really did I I -- nobody had brought this up it had been a national headline. You would assume there'd be at least some NFL router out there looking using cut -- -- -- signs of warehouse Martins sitting in. But that's been talked about it all the legal you press stupid teacher. Now we're talking about it -- the frustrating thing to me is how can we don't have a teacher detaining. Send this one we should -- Iowa I feel like there are times -- on this office were on emotionally sensitive to what you guys are saying and I think that's all you're saying we should create one. Now you want to -- now we need a Credo. I don't we have a Credo we are in -- during spring. We won't. -- what -- our -- of the and we need help on the -- or not create a type of guy he hurt his he had to act what -- -- -- -- -- yeah messed -- saying about the -- now Macedonia terminated if he should I wouldn't -- we didn't do that he's an honest guy that can actually bowl but what we're Austin doesn't know is that on this -- tooth -- and do things to -- bigger than what people do -- -- to -- -- -- one spell and anyway so good that. They named him to. Include kid it's an extreme extreme. At that set up a. -- think he NCAA had me and about a tiger this brings in Iraq. We shall speak up I'm speaking up after the show was done -- our. Dan towards dirt and spread is served up by Buffalo Wild Wings on ESPN's Sports Radio 1080 welfare and. I got to dig us into you know what they -- like I'm sorry I can't I got a function I had seen -- -- the judge. You got. -- out. I. We're -- Twitter acts -- gas evaporated spraying IMAX team Iranian fourth Mike Lynch esteemed producer actor Michael lynch 27. Posting a lot of our interviews podcasts Mike's.

Crucial to our developments as can't win that Taloqan when years 201718. Adults and link them -- he had a 3435. And that territory in that ballpark -- around that time in the -- the kicker wants to let you know that it was a all fraud that aren't kickers and Herman Boone was a terrible. Person did that this never ever happened. Listen up I don't know if -- black and green -- why don't orange I want all of my demands of players on this time all the way and gone off Bob Bennett.

We obligated to discuss this next story in our contractor Abbas is making us so we leave we are doing so this is -- directly from Bristol. And ESPN's. Those other -- let's get to it -- that I here's -- to do -- -- Stephen A Smith tell Dan for there is Brady got time on his next start if our Urban Meyer said I don't get like Tim Tebow isn't in the NFL. Now I'm just really excited about the improvement and progress IC that was Tim Tebow wow Urban Meyer said I still don't get it he's the second most efficient passer ever to play college football. -- really good personnel around them we utilized is still very well I think in -- time traditional setting it is difficult but there's a lot of non traditional offense is now. In the NFL that's one of the brightest minds in the game that we have in Urban Meyer Hastert it is it's very he's very accurate on a lot of those things Tim Tebow. McEnroe let's -- route that I am not trying to surround them I'm just speaking minder -- it is look at his weapons look at is on look at his tools. It's fundamental one of the greatest college players of all time. I'm kind of with urban music and in all seriousness. How are you how was he not in the -- that I. As he isn't that bad that's why he's not in the NFL he is that bad he is not deserving of a third string starting quarterback job is you know -- worse than brain Wheaton I would rather have branded not a night on my question is he ways worse yeah. -- a -- and we didn't throw a football Tim Tebow won a playoff game throwing the football. I don't know what. There are athletes out there that did not stop a -- to stop for stop the in there are athletes out there. Now for some reason just get like blind support and faith that -- I understand it to a certain point advocates about yeah -- again -- -- -- is Jesus tablet he didn't Diebold was unbelievable Florida nobody's gonna disagree -- that he's kind of this call classic now if you will where everybody just look there's there's just a segment of the population. No matter where you go and it's like he's never gonna get another job if anybody signed him there weren't legitimately be fans in the stands chanting Tebow is name if your team started to struggle. That's a dumb some fans are out there that they would literally chances name and wanted to be the starting quarterback he got cut by the patriots got cut by the jets began training in what they're saying -- didn't get a fair shake it is thing is murdering -- he could not throw a football you cannot play quarterback any NFL without being able to throw him. Had -- he won a playoff game he threw it in two I think various artists right to -- That's exactly right. You know throw the book somebody can't all of a volley did pretty good job and act -- -- I'm not in a pretty good -- lead into the -- how many yards and their own war in that game three there sixteen honey Abby are due to Oprah last season. Now he can appreciate yeah beat the Steelers in the playoffs though you know imperialists -- in the bracket with the -- around I think they were there number wondering defense that year -- He torched him. 300 plus yards in -- rank -- couldn't play. -- saying Yankee great strong arm but he has no idea where its content. He throws also the ground. If you groundless as wide receiver he would be a phenomenal NFL quarterback -- -- go and write some areas Thomas and the -- happy my US it's all abrupt fan. Can not be making this argument Broncos are the lucky is organization in the history of football considering that they were able to and one year switch -- Tim Tebow for Peyton Manning you can be Manning only has one more playoff -- yeah he's been really Super -- -- New money or genius and act and I can't. Put have you seen Tim Tebow -- work out session and Scott think about this wonder. -- what about this is that the eighty. Think about the workouts how intense they are these YouTube videos him -- -- you'd -- is. 373000.
