Read it again may be youll get my comment the 2nd time around. We are talking about teams that might take Mark and what it would cost. We aren't getting a value player so to move him we would have to take someone elses cap issues. That was the whole point of my comment. Sorry if it was over a Pats fan head.First who cares about Oakland? And why would you even bring another team up just because they are in a worse predicament?
I disagree. Have you seen any of these guys play? Pace and Scott aren't starters on any other team IMO. Pace is an edge blitz option that cant get pressure or stop the run anymore. Scott is just done and Smith well OK maybe him. As far as Greene RB is fickle I'll take a gamble over what we have right now. I'll take a shot at someone like Redman, Morris, or even a Joique Bell. It is not like Greene is even putting up average RB #s this year. Outside of 1 game even I'll admit he is a bust. I was one of his biggest supporters by the way. But he will not be worth the money to resign him next year.And no an UNFA can not play better than Pace, Scott, Greene or Smith, or the current back ups would be starting. Rex or any coach needs to win to
keep his job. They would play the better player if there was one.
That is my point thanks. It isn't going to coast 6-16 mil to resign or replace any of them. Yeah Moore gets a 3 mill deal we still get part of that off the cap. 700k off the cap # is still 700k it doesn't matter if he signs a vet min deal or not.It does not matter if you think the positions to be filled are not "prime" To get a vet guard to come here that will be an improvement over Slauson or Moore your looking at around 3 mill a piece at minimum.
I'll take either of those deals in a heart beat that again is my point not hard to fill. I honestly think that is right. Even at 3 year 15 mill Landry can be back loaded. I'd think he'd be looking for a 5 year deal though. 5 year 20mil would make everyone happy IMO.Landry will probably want 3 and 15 total at min if he takes a discount to stay. Bell would probably stay for 1.5 too.
Kevin Boss just signed a 9 mil 3 year deal and is only making 750k this year. Tamme was almost the same deal. Celek is also around 3 mil a year. That is average TE money. Heck Dallas Clark signed a 1 year 2.7 mil deal last year. Your telling me that wouldn't be a viable replacement? You really don't need to spend big buck at TE to get value.Please tell me what starting TE are you going to get for 3mill. Bennet signed a one year 2.5 deal with the giants last year, but he was the only TE that move that cheaply. And he only did that for a shot at a ring and to play with Manning. Any other guy was not somebody you would want to start.
I already cover Moore. I'll take the vet discount and give him a 2 year 6mil deal NP. That is cheap for the talent level IMO. Pouha though struggled to get what he got from us last year at 5 mil a year and he was a top 3 NT FA last year. Most of which incentive laden lol What makes you think he is worth more then 1 mil next year? Seriously how much do you think a 34 year old NT with injury concerns is worth on the open market? He was a part time starter to begin with and has declined greatly this year. No one is giving him more that deal again next year. Other then maybe Pitts who out there needs a NT right now? So many teams have switch back to a 4-3. Not to mention that FA class is actually pretty stacked at NT. Sopoaga, Rogers, Kemoeatu, Hampton, Franklin, Cody, Branch, and Bannan where do you really think Puoha would be in this group? lol I'd take him over Hampton and Rodgers at a cheap price and that is about it.Why do you think Moore will sign a vet min deal with the Jets? You don't think he can get a back up gig for twice that somewhere. Likewise Pouha, who will get an incentive laden contract somewhere, NTs are hard to find.
I have no doubt that BB would sign Pouha to back up Wilfork for 20 snaps.
lololol no Folk just signed a under 1 mil deal this year. Why does he get that kind of raise? He is still the same player he was last year the pro bowl is NOT in his future. OK kick him back a raise but 2.5! My hats off to his agent if he can get that from anyone.
Folk will get at least 2.5 on the open Market. He has had a very good year. the best kickers get 3.5-4 mil now.
