Tavecchio at 28 was too young to play for Gruden. The 36 year old Nugent barely reaches the age requirement for Gruden's team, but he'll at least be given a chance to show what he's got!


Liver spots?

Of topic I know,  but there are several coaches salaries sitting between 7.5 and 8 mill a year.  Is 10 really that hard to fathom? 

$10 mil per year isn't, but 10 years for a guy who is 95-81 over 11 seasons, with a 5-4 record in the playoffs absolutely is. Over the final six years of his career, he lost six more games than he won (45-51). Of course there might only be 3-4 years guaranteed, but with Davis there might be 8 as well. He literally set the record for years, per year value, and total value all in one deal. Several of those coaches are worth well more than Gruden has a claim to, though of course his value only has to be inflated to one owner.

I like the gamble, but I like it because Gruden makes me laugh and because it isn't my money.
