I don't think we could afford him for $3m

Gettleman is bargain shopping and Branch got a good deal for DT.

What's up with fans thinking he's a bargain shopper ?

As much as I love TAVON, im telling y'all Gettleman is putting himself in the situation to take a DT at 14.

Maybe we trade back up into the 2nd for Tavon. A draft of Sheldon and Tavon would be nuts! But it's easier said than done.

Until the gross move, we didn't have much money to spend. So he indeed was bargain shopping. Doesn't mean he is cheap, we just didn't have the capital to make moves for other players.

This sucks, we could have had him. Oh well.

Then I guess every other GMs are bargain shoppers also. Fans act like Gettleman is the only one signing guys for 1yr contracts, etc.

Unless Star or Sharrif fall to us, I doubt we're taking a DT at 14.

No, you're just acting naive and thinking we're the only landing spot for free agents.

In most cases.. Those other teams are either contenders, which make them a lot more attractive than us. Or they are the former team of the player. So they don't want to move and learn a new system.

Just more reason for these players to take one year deals.

All the guys that Gettleman signed weren't going to get any bigger contract elsewhere. Do you believe that with me? Ok

Gettleman was not impressed by Branch. He was never an option.

How do you know? Who told you?
Maybe Gettleman wanted to stick with his philosophy of drafting DT(s) in the draft bc it had worked well for NYG.
