    Provided he can hold onto the ball, stay healthy and pass protect even a little -- all issues in Kansas City -- this is certainly the correct sort of team for his "one cut and go" skill set evident in college.

    There's little wear and tear (he was often a scratch even when healthy) so it could be a solid opportunity.

    You just seem to have a hard time finding any joy for any former Razorback without being negative in some way, don't you? I'll bet you are riot at birthday parties.

    If the folks on this board, myself included, can just exercise a little restraint and not respond to the poor little guy, he'll go away. Only reason he comes back is because he gets attention.

  • #12 by 1highhog on 20 Mar 2017
  • If he makes it through year 2017 this will give him his 5 year NFL pension won't it?  That's what I'm always hoping for all our Razorbacks that make the NFL at the very least, is that they can stay at the very least 5 years so they can be set for life if they don't live outrageously.

    Set for life?  I doubt it's that good a pension.  It is worthwhile to get though.

    Yep.  Definitely not set for life.  It's a great pension based on the number of years worked, but nothing even close to being set for life.

  • Good luck to Knile! 
  • #25 by havok on 21 Mar 2017
  • Steelers looking for Lightning to strike twice.  They brought in former Hog Cobi Hamilton who blossomed, and became a big piece of their offense..   Knile could be nice spark too.
  • #26 by DeltaBoy on 21 Mar 2017
  • Good for him.
  • #27 by 89ALUM on 21 Mar 2017
  • I'm a huge Steelers fan as well.  But I don't think the Steelers break camp with both Cobi and Knile on the roster. 

    Cobi has fierce competition especially since the Steelers brought Justin Hunter in from Buffalo.  Behind the Steel Curtain thinks Cobi will be the first one cut, even before DeMarcus Ayers.

    Secondly, Knile's addition may bump another Arkansas native from the team in DeAngelo Williams, born in Wynne.  I love DeAngelo and hope the Steelers resign him, but by adding Knile they won't really need four RB's.  Fitzgerald Toussaint is also on the roster.

    Knile is great at returning kicks and also has good pass-catching ability on third down.  So maybe he sticks and Toussaint goes.  I dunno.
  • #28 by zeke_in_kc on 21 Mar 2017
  • Yes, Knile is one dimensional, injury prone and has fumble-itus but his one dimension is speed in a crease.

    That is a Steelers thing dating to Franco Harris.

    Sure, I think "camp body" is likely but nothing is impossible.

    Looks like they only need 3 years in the league to get a pension so he's good to go. 21k a year minimum is not too shabby. Many people work full time and dont make that in Arkansas.

    Doubt it.  It's not like he starts drawing it as soon as he stops playing football.  Just cause you played in the NFL for 5 years doesn't mean you're rich and don't have to work until you retire.  The NFL pays great for the time you're in, but it doesn't pay so well that people are set for life.  A few players, yes, but not the majority of them.

    His take home is no where near that.  Deduct taxes and agent fees and you might be surprised how much of that he actually brought home.  That amount is not going to get him to retirement age.  Again, it's not like he starts drawing retirement as soon as he stops playing football.  Yeah, it's great pay while they are playing, but when you finish playing in your 20s, you have a long way to go before you start drawing retirement pay.

    Isn't it like $2000 per month vs. a portion of their salaries or something like that?  But they have to be 35 or in some cases 50 to begin collecting it.  I'm probably wrong on most of that, but I did read about it this past season.

    The article above said the average is $43K/yr once they start drawing their pension at 55.  that's a great pension for the number of years worked, but they have to make it to 55.  Not many are going to do that on what they brought home over a 5yr career.

    umm I could definately live on the average NFL pension.
    43,000 a year. Is it tax free?

    Again, he draws that at 55, not when he stops playing football.  How long you gonna live on no income?  Is any pension tax free?

    Idk man I'm 26 lol.
    And hopefully they save some money from their playing days.

    Yeah, I'm sure some do put away quite a bit.  Others don't.  From taxes, agents, living in expensive cities, etc., quite a bit of that salary gets used up pretty quick.  Regardless of how much they put away, it's usually not enough to make it 30 years to retirement age.  If they are smart, the money they made in the NFL allows them to transition into a decent job after their playing days because most are going to need it.

    I sadly know what his problem is. All I can do is pity him.

    Anyway, moving on... Congrats to Knile Davis!! Hope he does well there.

    In a college city or rural town, you can do pretty well on just 20k a year so long as you don't have to pay for kids or something. Bigger city, 40k a year will do you just fine for a modest but comfortable lifestyle. 20k is possible but you are going to have to live with 7 other people and never go out to eat.

    So, as was mentioned earlier, different people live on different levels. If he was able to store up 1M dollars, then so long as investments keep pace with any inflation/taxes, he could stay in a bigger city for 25 years without having to work a single day, living a comfortable 40k a year lifestyle. However, IIRC, he already has a kid and family, so things are going to cost more for him. However, he probably has more than just 1M in his account as well, including his agent fees and taxes and such. Also doubtful that he nor anyone else in his household would forgo working at all. Just that, you can be a lot more picky about the work th at you do. Want to sell art? You can do that and just bring in say 5k a year and be good to go. Want to only work camps and make 10k a year? That's possible too.
