I thought my distaste for Bryan Bulaga could not grow anymore. It has.
Do you know how many times this flaming piece of shit has made it through a full season in his eight-year NFL career?
He’s missed all of the 2013 season. He played just five games last year. He missed four games in two other seasons.
Which knee are you going to blow out this year, you fat fuck?
Why do I dislike Bryan Bulaga? He’s an overrated sack of crap. The contract he got from Uncle Ted in 2015, which averages $6.75 million a year, was the classic case of Ted overvaluing and overpaying a guy he drafted.
Bryan Bulaga has never sniffed a Pro Bowl, much less All-Pro honors, yet he’s paid like that.
He’s the kind of guy who, if you criticize him or his play, will block you on Twitter. That actually happened. Way to be a man!
Why has my ire for Bryan Bulaga grown today?
Packers’ GM Brian Gutekunst obviously has a similar opinion about Bulaga, his injuries and his play that I do. Gutekunst tried to renegotiate Bulaga’s contract earlier this offseason, asking him to take a pay cut.
And I’ll just throw this out — that useless prick ultimately made $1.35 million per game last year.
According to a source, the Packers attempted to negotiate a pay cut from Bulaga in the offseason but were rebuffed and talks went nowhere. Bulaga has two years left on a five-year, $33.75 million contract that he signed in March 2015. His base salaries are $5.85 million this year and $5.8 million in 2019.
I’ve got a solution for you Gutes.
Cut the fucker.
The Packers would gain a bit more than $2 million in cap space by doing so.
But what about a replacement, you ask?
Now we know why the Packers have been showing interest in so many draftable tackles. Clearly, they are serious about finding another solution at right tackle. Clearly, and not at all surprisingly, Bulaga and his thin skin has overvalued himself.
And if you don’t get your tackle in the draft, let’s just plug in Kyle Murphy or Jason Spriggs and roll with that. It’s not like right tackle is a premium position.
So long, dimwit!
7 million is not that much money nowadays in the NFL for an above average RT.
He rebuffed the pay cut and, guess what? Still on the team making the same money. That makes Bulaga wise and Gute the Bad a fool.
Ah ha, you say, we will cut him! That will prove… that Gute the Bad is a fool and Bulaga is wise. He’d get a contract that matches or exceeds his current one as well as still collecting funds from the Packers. Meanwhile Gute the Bad will have further downgraded the team and/or forced a pick to be used on RT instead of one of the other crying raging needs.
Way to go, Mr. Bulaga! Expecting the dishonorable Packers to honor your contract? Good for you!
Dude. Teams cut players all the time and don’t “honor their contract.” Don’t act like the queens have never done so
Let me clear up a misunderstanding….
When a team cuts a player who they feel is under performing for the amount of compensation (see Dez Bryant) they are NOT breaking a contract, they have every right to cut him in accordance to the language in the contract. If that was not true, the player would then sue the team for recovery. How often do you see that?
If a team is paying someone way over what their performance justifies. (See Nick Perry and his 26 million paid in the 1st 15 months of his deal) and that player clearly under performs and is on the injury list for 14 weeks, that team is powerless to cut him as his initial money is guaranteed per the language in his contract.
Side note: The Packers wanted to recover Bennett’s signing bonus, the Packers claiming Bennett broke his contract language for not fully disclosing an injury. The league told them to go jump in the Bay.
Breaking a contract in the NFL, may happen, but it is an extremely rare occurrence. (See Ricky Williams)
California lib-tard body shaming, what a shocker.
Libtard? Lol! I DO NOT see you EVER attacking anyone else for saying shit like this . . . Ask your President why he mocked and made fun of a disabled person. And calls people names everyday. What a Hypocrite! Lol!
Post-draft roster move, Bulaga moved out. Why pay for a guy on rehab 50% of the time.
What a dumb write up
Russ ball is the head of negotiations. Yet you make no reference to him, only Ted.
And why they hell should he take a pay cut? For the team? So they can use these additional 2 million to do nothing with? Or give it to the next guy who hasn’t earned it?
Bryan bulaga woukd beat the fuck out of you.
Ive been saying this too. But they wont cut him because the Packers also fucking suck at drafting OL high in the draft and they don’t have an insurance policy yet so they are fucking stuck with his injury shet again year after year. It wouldn’t surprise me if they draft McGlichey tonight in the first.
True on McGlinchey. Great player. Fantastic. Word is he could even go top 10. Supposedly the Bears like him. Supposedly the Raiders do also. I would take him over Quenton Nelson because of his position.
He is the only player I’d want the Vikings to trade up to get. But it would cost too much.
No one here gives a shit one way or another what the Vikings might do, braintrust.
4not like those guys won’t being playing in that spot anyway once he gets hurt. What’s the difference, let him go play for minnesota or chicago
No NFL player has ever taken a pay cut. Nor should they. When a player out-performs his contract the team doesn’t say “hey you are playing so well we are giving you a raise.” So if he isn’t playing up to the contract or is injured then the team either needs to cut the player and eat the rest of the contract or go the time honored ‘pay-cut’ route, extending with more guaranteed money to lower the yearly cap hit.
In Bulaga’s case he has two years left and will be 31 and at this point adding more guaranteed money and years would be throwing good money after bad. Bulaga and his agents correctly read his value versus what he is being paid against what the type of replacement the Packers could put in a RT. Bitch all you want, but Bulaga is still one of the best RTs and when he plays the Packers have been one of the best offensive lines for several years.
Saving $2 million? While having $4 million in dead money? Meh. Just keep for this year. He is above average when healthy.
Why was this info evendors released? Some one is trying to make someone else look bad.
Where have we seen this before
From 2014 – 2016, Bulaga only missed 5 games (not bad at all) and just to keep it real, during that time, he’s easily better than average.
Bakhtiari and Bulaga are pretty damn good book ends. You see what happens to pass protection when those 2 are out at the same time.
You do need to have to plan now for Bulaga’s replacement. If Spriggs is the Packers replacement plan, (much like drafting corner backs) they may want to try again re-think that plan.
