Hartline's deal

28 posts in this topic

5 years for $31 million after only one good season in his career. Damn the Dolphins for skewing the value of wr's, at that rate we have been getting Smitty for quite a good price. If he is getting 6 a year, what do you think Wallace is going to demand?

He had one good year, and they're paying him like a proven guy. It's probably an overpay, but that's what you have to do to keep talent around your young quarterback.

yea i guess, and that one "good year" consisted of ONE touch down. It's not the fact they overpaid for him, well overpaid in the average fans eyes and most kinda expected, but what it does for other wr's who are twice the player he is and what they will be asking for.

Not sure how we have the right to laugh at them, when we thought the extensions to Godfrey, and Dwill were good deals.

The guy is young, has obvious chemistry with their QB of the future, and had 1100 yards, I don't think a average of 6 million a year for a reciever is a terrible deal. Even if they get Mike Wallace, this guy will be at least their #2 Wideout and on the field at all times, and he's making less then our backup running back(in a pass first league). We have no room to laugh.

Thread wasn't created to laugh at another team, but to see what people think it will do to other wr's expectations. He only scored one td last season, not that that tells the entire story but it probably will make it more difficult to sign quality players with some of these high contracts. Maybe not seeing that Rice and Foster both signed for less than Deangelo after the fact, but it could always be used in a players negotiation.

    • Cam will get the calls.  The hits to Cam head was too much of a talking point in a negative manner towards the NFL last year.  The discussion on the hits to his head were part of the reason this rule change was made.  NFL tried to paint the picture that Cam was being treated the same as other QBs while coming up with new ways to say he wasn't protected by the rule when an obvious miss call was made.  Ex. wrapping technique when hit low in the pocket.  Posture when hit in the pocket in the head.  Then this offseason they change the rule to make it look like they were proactive in protecting players.  Cam will get the calls and they will toot their own horn saying how the change in the rule is working.
