That is a nice result for him on the pay scale. Joining Hopkins in the desert ..... both of them have really cashed in on moving to Arizona
... championships are great but there is no guarantee you are winning it no matter where you go.
Arizona is heading upward I think..... it is not like going to the Jets or Jags ...... take the dough and roll

JJ was definitely a pipe dream and the "band of brothers" was a good story but was never going to happen. If anything the ONLY thing the "band of brothers" helped in was getting JJ to pick out of division team. Don't see cardinals as a contender but hey, maybe they are now............... :)

F83 has a legitimate suggestion !!!

1. That's a lot of money to pay for someone that hasn't played a full season in 4 years.
2. So much for the "wanting to go to a contender"
3. For 31 million the Cards can have him...there are much younger and more cost effective options out there.

2017 - 5 games

2018 - 16 games

2019- 8 games

2020 - 16 games

well you are 1/2 right on the full season part (profootball reference stats)

fully right on your next two..!!!

No one really ever believed we were serious about signing him right? That’s all we needed was another old guy and overpay him.
We need to first get this Ben thing done and hopefully we can keep a couple of our younger players.

Of all players to set money aside to play with his brother(s) I thought JJ was the guy. Too bad.

That was a media / fan driven story and as nolstagic as it may have seemed, it wasn't going to happen unless the money was there. If for example you were a plumber working at Joe's plumbing and your two brothers were plumbers working for Bob's plumbing, would you go to work for Bob's at a discount wage to the same job as before but ONLY to be working with your "brothers" in the same shit different day mode......... Hell NO

It's unlikely that anyone working for Bob's Plumbing has earned $100 million in his career, or has a current net worth of $50 million, so your analogy is a bit flawed.

Just as topseed stated, sports are a different realm. Players take less for a shot at glory or a better situation all the time.
