I will be surprised if CT is not signed, although, I like what I have seen in both Young and Johnson and think either of them could fill the role respectfully for a much cheaper price.
I am kindof lost when it comes to the role of money this year.
My guess is that they (the Ownership Group) will spend, but they will do is sparingly this year and I don't think CT will be part of that spending spree, regardless of what ole Ricky Boy said.
CT is looking for his last big cashout and will want to go to a contender. A team like SD would fit in all catagories and will probably out bid us by a sizeable amount.
Probably correct, tough to say about the money issues. You can rest easy though, the best in the business, Brzezinski, has a better handle on what is going on than probably anyone else in the NFL.
Ole Bryzcheapski. Your right about that cat. He knows how to squeeze it doesn't he.
Problem is, in this new environment, the owner with the most cash will probably win. I suspect our owners are a bit up against it this year.
Even if it is an uncapped year, that condition won't persist. So if teams put out an exorbitant amount of money this year for someone they will bite it in the upcoming capped years. Brzezinski won't allow that to happen to the Vikings. I'm willing to bet that some of the bigger market teams will set themselves up for future salary cap hell if they get too carried away grabbing unrestricted free agents.
When was the last time I told you that you were wise beyond your years my friend?
Anyway, from what Ryan/Kirwan were saying the other day, there are only about 8 or 9 guys that teams will actively pursue in the FA market this year.
Even if you were a team that stepped out and tried to get all 8, I'm not so sure that you would get into that much of a problem.
As with teams that have cats like TJ or Edwards on thier teams, they are basically gonna get away with paying about 1/3 the going price for thier services this year.
Two things are gonna come of that......a) Players will be pissed and won't play hard.....b) Teams with those players will loose games as well as those players when this is all done.
