In response to CablesWyndBairn's comment:
Have read in multiple places that it was Talib who settled for 1 year and not long term security. Say this for him, he is obviously confident in his abilities and will be looking to cash in by having a good year. That BB waited out the market and got Talib on his terms is a good thing. He could've overpaid for the guy, which would have been worse. I frankly think giving this guy a long term deal and a big bonus would be scary, who knows which guy you're gonna get at that point?
Agree. Plus, Bdbreu doesn't understand economics and markets. The 1 year deal actually favors the Pats due to the cap not going up in 2015. BB will have another pick of quality CBs next offseason.
Bdbreu is just pissed he'll have to adjust his roster again next year. lol
I just read Reiss's blog and he's pointing to the market being flooded again next year as well, which is what I said days ago if not weeks ago:
7. Not sure enough attention has been paid to how dramatically the market has been lowered for player contracts this year. When a top cornerback like Cortland Finnegan signs a deal averaging $10 million per season as a free agent last year, and this year's top cornerbacks feel fortunate to get half that, it is stunning to watch unfold. Remind me again how this is good for the players? I am already hearing that 2014 is likely going to be more of the same.
Bdbreu, in case you're needing a translation, this means Talib is taking a massive gamble on a team that may not have the best structure, paying a lot more to get to the cap FLOOR by 2015.
That's certainly possible, but it's also major risk in what will be a flooded market again due to a stagnant cap ceiling.
You can either learn or continue to be an ignorant kid running around here babbling and whining about every move BB makes. Your behavior here, amongst others refusing to learn why BB does what he does, reflects a very poor IQ level or even wanting to learn.
2014 is going to be the same thing because all these cbs are settling for short term deals.
Next years class will include Talib, DRC, probably Grimes, Tillman, Tim Jennings, Sam Shields, Vontae Davis, and probably some fill in some release victims in there too.
Next year won't be much different than last year
