Donte Whitner aka Hitner

Just unfollowed him on instagram lol
I think we HAD to get rid of him, cause as much as I hate to say it, as long as he was on our team, the refs would always be gunning for our backfield every chance they got (like Sapp during his Raider years).

Lol @ you. This thread was made in 2013
For those of you who are curious he are the details of Whitner's deal with Cleveland per ESPN:


Whitner received a $9 million signing bonus and a $2 million base salary this season that is guaranteed. He'll also be paid a $4.5 million base salary in 2015 that is guaranteed on the 15th day of the league year. Barring catastrophe, Whitner will be on the team both seasons, and thus is guaranteed $15.5 million. Whitner also will be paid $6.2 million in 2016, and $6.3 million in 2017. Total contract: Four years, $28 million.


Curious if he sees years 3 and 4 with them. doubt it.

It depends on where they are as a team and his level of play. The issue with a guy like Carlos Rogers for example is that he wasn't a bad corner, but he probably was the 10th or 11th best player on a top tier defense. Donte Whitner was in a similar predicament. He goes to Cleveland and is one of the best. Unless Cleveland is still around 4-12 in 2015 (which means its pointless to pay Whitner all of that money), or the level of the defense rises and he is no longer one of the best players on the team, he should be ok in those final years.
So browns gave him a $28 million 4 year contract. We gave Bethea a $22 million 4 year deal. Whitner says niners offered him$8-10 million less than Cleveland. Hmmmmmmmm did we value Bethea more or just had to offer him more than Whitner because we were up s**t creek without a safety?

Well crap teams are always gonna have to pay for veterans to come play for them......see Nate Clements in 2006. So I think the Browns just over paid a little for Whitner and he's making it seem like the 9ers low-balled him. I'm gonna have to say the 9ers offered him something similar to what they gave Antoine Bethea, which seems fair.

The most notable aspect of the contracts that is not listed on the table is the total guaranteed money. Bethea's contract includes $6.25 million in full guarantees. That includes the $5 million signing bonus, and the $1.25 million base salary for 2014. The $3 million base salary for 2015 is guaranteed for injury, and becomes fully guaranteed if he is on the roster April 1, 2015.Donte Whitner's contract reportedly includes $11 million in full guarantees. That includes his $9 million signing bonus, and his $2 million base salary for 2014. He has another $2 million in guarantees if he is on the Browns roster 5 days after Super Bowl XLIX.

Yep, Bethea is a stop gap for one year. The guarantee's say so. Looking forward to a young safety being selected in the upcoming draft.
Wish him well BUT Browns front 7 isn't even close to our Magnificent 7. Donte will have his hands full.

But they do have Joe Haden and maybe one other good corner, and I think you're underrating the Browns defense.

After all, their problem for the most part has been offensive consistency.
