Like the Steelers, we had some very clutch performances this year. For those of you not familiar, when we had the time to write a gameday post (which sometimes didn’t happen because of work, school or traveling to the game) we usually presented a “gameday player” to help the team win. Did we copy this idea from the Pensblog? Yeah. But we used different characters.
At any rate, here is the contract status for our players.
First and foremost, Aragorn lead the charge for some big road victories. The King of Gondor is still undefeated and heading into free agency looking for a big-time contract. We’re in negotiations with him, but his agent is a wizard.
This guy doesn’t like to budge on contract numbers. We’ll keep you updated on the situation.
Our medical consultant, JD, is currently listening to other offers. JD will probably go to the bidder offering the most Appletinis.
Luckily for us, we have Jack under contract and he’s back where he belongs, so he won’t be going anywhere.
Lead analyst Yoda is scheduled to be a restricted free agent, which means we get the opportunity to re-bid for him if he gets an offer for another team. Some have made comments about not offering a long-term deal to someone of his age, but he’s got the intangibles that make him a keeper.
Our defender of the home turf, Jack Bauer, may be lost to free agency. He’s demanding a very high contract, and he’s a ruthless negotiator. We’ll be actively looking to pick up a player that can defend the Heinz Field grass.
Styx came through with a clutch performance for us in the post-season, and they are here to stay.
Finally, Jules has one year left on his current deal, but we’re looking into restructuring that into a long term deal.
While scouring the lengthy list of free agents, we picked up these guys off of waivers to help us combat off-season rumors.
