Out of principle and the fact you already offered a deal and I agreed to it, I'll tell you to politely blow it out of your ass.

"Thanks for your time, Tyrone. I respect your conviction but this clearly isn't going to work out and since no contract was ever signed and submitted through the league office, I think it's best we consider other candidates for the position."

GM ELI, THANKFUL TO BE ALIVE, PICKS UP A FEW ITEMS AND SETS THEM ON A NEARBY WINDOWSILL BECAUSE WHO KNOWS IF THERES ANYTHING LEFT TO SET ANYTHING ON! LIKE WHERE THE HELL IS HE SUPPOSED TO SET HIS DRINK NOW JESUS FUCKING CHRIST

"Umm... Ivanka. Could you get an estimate on how much it's going to cost to repair these damages....

And then get me the defensive coordinator from Wisconsin on the phone, please. Or just dial his number on my cell phone for me. My hands are shaking so much right now I don't think I could do it."

NOT HAVING ANYWHERE LEFT TO SIT, GM ELI SITS ON THE FLOOR AND SAYS A PRAYER TO THE GOOD LORD THAT TYRONE FITS IN THE POLICE CAR

Yes sir... looks like 250K from our bonus pool to fix the damages.


..as for Wisconsin, we didn't get an answer, but Ohio State's head coach is available it would appear?

Ronnie Dawn, good to meet you.

Lets cut to the chase.  I'm a Buckeye through and through, and I want to help you win a championship.

My defensive scheme is basically a clone of Coach Blitzers, so I fit right into what you're working with here.

I'll sign for 2 years and 4.5MM

Alright, now hold the damn phone.

I hear you've got plans to trade Bismack right after we sign...  ...and to TULSA of all places. 

What the actual hell?

"Bobby, I apologize. You haven't heard wrong but I hope you'll allow me to explain myself.

Bismack has been a solid presence for us at defensive end. We had a conversation earlier this season where he stated that he wanted to go somewhere he was going to get paid. And while we would like to have him as a part of this team, unfortunately he's not someone we could afford to pay the sort of contract he deserves.

With that said, it's my responsibility to look out for the best interests of the team and if I had the opportunity to obtain assets, and make it possible for him to get what he had expressed he wanted as well, I thought it best to do so. Which is why I made the decision to use the exclusive franchise tag on him. It guarantees him a bigger contract and a larger signing bonus as a minimum. Now, GM Franchise has the finances to pay him what he deserves, and to continue to build a defense around him.

I could have gone about it in a better way, but I was legitimately doing what I thought was best for us AND for him."

Fine, duly noted. 

Lets get this mess over with then.  We'll sign the 1 year, $19MM tag, with a $5MM signing bonus.

"Thanks for taking the call, Richard. Listen, I know you probably have your heart set on being a coordinator somewhere, but if that doesn't come through for you I'd like to bring you on here in Cleveland as an AC to work with our defense, and especially our front seven. Is that something you'd be open to considering? I'd be willing to work a contract with you on a yearly basis at two million per season."

"Ace, this is going to be a bit awkward and I'm not one to ask for favors. As you know we've got a good number of draft picks this season, and seven of them come in the first three rounds of the draft. Now, I'm confident in the abilities of our scouts to get us information but this is one of those classes where it's imperative to hit on all of our picks, especially the early ones.

Essentially, I'd like to ask for an additional 3MM to enable our scouts to spend time with more positions groups, and to give us the ability to pinpoint the players we want. I understand if you say no, but again... with the abundance of picks we have this is a class we need to hit home runs with."

I'd prefer you find a trade to make with another team to get them to possibly buy a draft pick for some cash, but if all else fails, I MIGHT be able to put even more money into the off-season.
