Do you think we decided to pay him more than we had to? Do you think we just threw money at him for no reason? Do you think his agent had no talks with other teams and that Hurney was totally out of whack here?? I think that Richardson and Morrison both had to sign off on this. You really think they threw away money for no reason?? We have always been known to pay well for core players but we surely aren't the Raiders.
I think we paid him more than we had to....and he isn't the first or the only one in recent history.
I think there was a reason for it.....they paid him for what he did in the past.
Little reason to believe in today's NFL, a 28 yr old RB w/ the recent injury bug would have sniffed that if he left here this offseason. He might of gotten a decent short term deal....but nothing like Carolina paid him.
