Man, how do you just let a guy with his talent go with nothing in return? I heard the Eagles are pretty interested and they have plenty of cap room. I'd really like to see him end up in Dallas catching Bledsoe bombs. Muhammed is in the prime of his career and will have an impact on whatever team he ends up on.

Thats surprising they didn't come to a deal. He was their best WR last season, how can they let him go without a fight or was he asking for too much?

All-Pro receiver Muhsin Muhammad agreed to a six-year contract with the Chicago Bears one day after being released by the Carolina Panthers.

Muhammad was cut by Carolina on Friday because the Panthers did not want to pay a $10 million roster bonus due on Tuesday. It didn't take long for him to find a new home, and the Bears will give him a $12 million signing bonus, which is guaranteed money.

Chigaco Bears? Is it me or did you think he would have gone to a better team?

I think that $12 million dollar signing bonus had a little something to do with it.


The Bears have a good defense, especially with a healthy Urlacher. They have good backs in Thomas Jones and A-Train and now have a star WR, all they might need to be competitive is a decent QB.

Yeah i guess that was a factor, i know its quite a big sum of money. But if i had just come off a season like he just did then i would be looking to go to a top side and better my chances of making the superbowl final. Isn't thats what it is all about? Making it to the final?

I agree that it should be, but nowadays these athletes seem to take the payday over the title.

It's usually when guys are ready to retire without a ring, then they'll take a pay cut.

Can you really blame them, though? What's the length of an average professional athlete's career? It's gotta be less than 5 years, right? And in the 4 major leagues on North America, there are at least 30 teams. So how many actually get that ring? A small percentage.

Why not at least get something out of it? I mean, if the owners are willing to pay, and the fans continue to pay for the tickets and other amenities, why the heck not go fo rmoney?

I hear what you're saying Gibbs, it's a win-win situation. I could only hope to have to make that kind of decision. :tum:
