Bass Makes $1 Million More per Year Than Butker


Recommended Posts

My guy better kick so many FG's during the off-season that he gets leg tremors in his sleep. Practice with people throwing footballs in his direction to simulate pressure. And we still need to bring in competition.

That's because Butker signed his extension in 2020.  Bass after the 2022 season.

This ^ amazing how little attention some fans pay to the NFL salary system. The most recent extension is always higher.

Almost like there has maybe been some inflation the last 4 years since the pandemic?

Hahahaha. There certainly has , and the NFL was affected by it but not in that way. The NFL cap is tied to revenue. It seemingly always goes up for the NFL - the one exception was the pandemic year with no fans. That was the only time revenue ( and thusly the cap) has gone down in probably decades. NFL revenues just keep climbing year after year .

Bass earned his contract at the time, he had a down year no doubt, hopefully he rebounds this year.

I agree with this.  The Dawson Knox contract was much more head scratching than Bass.  He had literally done nothing to earn the contract he was given

Did he though?   He has not had a lot of pressure kick opportunities.  I have never felt super confident with him.   He hit an upright in Detroit when the pressure was in but it went though.

I believe in Tyler.   

I think he needs to recommit himself, 110%, to the game of football.  That includes strength conditioning and more time kicking and less time golfing.  

If Tyler re-commits himself, totally, to football, he will be great.  If he thinks he can keep up what he has been doing the past 12 months, that is lollygagging, he won't be here in 2025.

Why don't we wait till someone is actually good before we throw money at him with these extensions. 


Yeah but we wanna show what a great culture we have and how much we appreciate guys like Bass and of course Dawson Knox, who is getting paid like a superstar to be a backup. Then we wonder why we can’t get close to winning it all.

Agree....it's just so inconsistent.  We make the right call not extending Davis & Edmunds but get a little prematurely excited for Bass & Knox. Let the contract play all the way out, then make your decision.

Bass has two more years of kicking in the worst stadium in the league for kickers. Ask Justin Tucker, the best kicker in history, how he feels about kicking at Highmark in January. 


Yet Harrison Butker seemed to do fine in that same stadium. And while Bass missed in the mess in Philly, Jake Elliott was nailing 50 plus yarders in the rain.

 

Once again in Buffalo we settle for good enough and reward that instead of looking for better. Our hope for next season is literally just that, hope. There’s no reason to think this ####### is gonna be any better next year, especially after ending our season this year. But yeah sure, he’s just gonna “bounce back” just like Gabe after his “ankle injury” last year.
