wiggins didnt sign with a different team because of contract demands, and nobody trusted he could play as good as he did with us. and wiggins loves us cause nobody would give him a chance in the nfl
I came across a post on a board earlier about Wiggins. Basically it was saying that we dont need him. I was appauled and it got me thinking...
I never really thought about Wiggins. I thought he was a good football player this year, but he never really stood out in my mind except for how funny he looked.
Why didnt he stand out in my mind? Because he isnt flashy...
He doesnt showboat... he just gets his job done... and get it done well he does.
Lets be real. Jermaine wiggins is most definetly NOT the prototypical tight end in the NFL. He is shorter than almost every tight end. He is a bit large. And he most certainly does NOT have blazing speed. But what is special about him? What makes him a good football player
*side note* I know this is only one year of production, but stay with me
Wiggins played in 14 games this year, and still was in the top 5 of every category for tight ends. How the hell did he do that? 1 thing. Heart
This guy has more heart than probably anybody on the roster. Lets look at his contract he signed.
5 yr - 7.3 million w/ 1 million signing bonus
I am sure that he was offered alot more money by different teams. He wants to stay purple and gold. He wears it with pride. That is not a big contract at all, infact its almost a shame seeing how low he is getting paid. There are players in the league that get more money in 1 year than he will in 5. I just want to thank him for signing a contract for such a low amount. He wants another ring more than he wants money and THAT is what a real football player is all about.
