Another week in the offseason brings us more contracts, injuries and retirements. The months between seasons are a nightmare for fans, with each newsflash bringing joy and disappointment in equal measure. Keenan Allen has been offered a four year extension to his contract, cementing his relationship with the San Diego Chargers for the near future. The Chargers and 24 year old Allen came to an agreement over the weekend, which pencils him in for a potential $49 Million, with 45 set as a base, and 4 in incentives. He gets a guaranteed $20 M, and comes home with $9.5 M as a signing bonus. The Wideout performed admirably last season considering he picked up a serious injury in November, which reduced his season to only eight games. It appears that the Chargers felt that this foreshadowed greater things in the future, and locked him down. Meanwhile, fellow Wide receiver Breshad Perriman’s run of bad luck continued with the Ravens, as he tore his left ACL on the final day of OTAs. The Ravens are yet to completely rule out his whole season, but this will require surgery, and major recovery before the 2015 Draft Pick can be considered ready to play. His first season was spent on the IR list after he sprained his right PCL on his first day in training camp. Here’s hoping that the fates relent on this particular receiver at some point soon, as he could really do with a break. Manny Ramirez has announced his Retirement from the game after 10 seasons. The central offensive lineman declared that after signing for the Bears in March, that he didn’t feel he could compete at the top level anymore, and decided to back away from the game rather than risk being benched for his last season. This brings some disappointment for the Bears, who were really looking forward to using the veteran lineman in their offense this season, to add strength to the centre. Ramirez started his career in Detroit, where he predominantly played centre, before being signed by the Broncos, where he went to the Super Bowl. Last year was spent back in Detroit, playing guard, and this was where the Bears intended to use him this season. Instead, Ramirez has opted to return home to Texas, and spend time with his family.
