First off: I'm blown away by how enormous that man is...
He came over after I said "Hey Kam! Go Hawks!" Super nice guy and took a sec to shake my hand. I said we've got a big season ahead of us, to which he replied "We've got unfinished business."
I mentioned his new contract and he said "They're workin on it as we speak!" with a big smile on his face. Sounds like he really is the next in line for a nice extension.
Random encounter, but what a good dude for taking a minute for a fan.

Interesting to hear that they are working on a new deal for him. I expect they are also working on deals with Earl and Okung.

It would be awesome if we could lock up Kam for a reasonable price. He's been a good player.

Thought I can't help but compare him to Michael Boulware, who played great as a rookie at LBer and moved to Safety for the Super Bowl year, but then for some reason his ability seemed to diminish and he was gone after just 4 years. I hope Kam can continue to improve his coverage skills.

I really like the smack he puts on opponents.

Early isn't a FA until 2015 and Russell until 2016. Russell's already making decent money this year, and I think Earl's cap number is pretty low. I guess Earl could make sense if they could work it out this year so that his cap hit is going to be far less in 2015-2016 by paying him right now.

thats good to hear, many people on this website and sports analyst have Kam as one of the first players to go if we have cap issues.

I got to talk to Kam at camp last summer...he is a good dude. And yes, that is a large man. I'm 6'3", 225 and I still felt small.

5 yrs 25 mil sounds reasonable for Kam , maybe a little less.

No, he's just filled out, muscular and broad. That and I had it in my mind "this is a safety".

Very cool, and I'm betting quite surprising since you were at the Atlanta airport and not Seattle. Glad to hear they are working on it. Of course we have all season, so there's no rush to get it done, but it would be nice to have it all finished up so he can at least get it signed before we start camp.

Actually I would expect not so much. Okung is locked up through 2015, that's 3 more years. We have a lot of money tied to his contract right now. We could feasibly restructure it to spread some of the money out, but as far as he is concerned, he's a hawk for the long term already. Thomas' contract, he's locked in for 2 more years, so unless they just want to move money around or try to get him locked in before the market increases next off season, there's no huge rush for his either. He is due over $8 million for the next 2 seasons. Both Earl and Okung were rookies before the rookie cap and were paid pretty well.

Cap rolls over now it no longer makes sense to front load to have less of a hit in the future especially over playing another year for less money. Only advantage is if you pay overall less by a new deal now and avoid the player hitting free agency

He better stay i just ordered my custom Kam jersy shirt yesterday! I really was debating wether or not to get him on my shirt because of his contract status. But he has been my favorite Hawk the last couple of years.

Someone mentioned the old rookie pay scale earlier. I just poked around in Rotoworld and Earl and Kam, both taken in 2010, are, between them, getting half what the top paid safety is, who was taken in that same draft.

Cool story. He must be coming back from Miami. ( would that be a stop ?)
I sent the Defense some Legion Of Boom Shirts I made. He told me on Twitter to send them under his name to Vmac and what sizes.
Hopefully a cool picture soon to come with them on!

That's Earl Thomas money. Kam would be silly to turn down 5 years at 5 a piece, imo. Thats good money and good security for a SS, on a team that should be competing for titles for the duration of the contract.

Thats really cool. I am a big Va Tech fan so I have liked Kam for a long time. I never really bought into the talk of some that he was so easily replaceable. He is one of the players most responsible for making this defense feared, and he also epitomizes the philosophy that your draft status will not hold you back from succeeding here. I really hope they can lock him up long term and keep the gang together.

You ran into Kam? Unless you did it with your car, I'd expect you to be concussed right about now...

Hell yeah!! That's the attitude I think this team has and it's a good omen.
