Broncos To Mike Shanahan: How Does $7 Million to Stay Quiet Sound?

Matt JCorrespondent IJuly 21, 2009

How many of you would like to be payed $7 million to keep your mouth shut?

Well, Mike Shanahan is living that dream. The Broncos have offered him $7 million to keep quiet about the team. He can talk about any other team or any other players; he just can't mention anyone on the Broncos or the Broncos in general.

Shanahan had two years left on his contract and he was to be payed $14 million over those two years. There's a clause in his contract that made this possible, unless he takes over the head coaching job somewhere else. 

He will be the highest paid coach next year in the NFL and he doesn't have to do any work. Shanahan has said he wants to return to coaching, but if I was him I would get a job as an analyst or announcer and wait two years. 

He can make the $14 million and jump right back into coaching, where I'm sure there will be a few coaching jobs available. Making $7 million and some extra—while being an announcer or analyst—would be a heck of a job.
