Most guys we got did no receive any interest on the market. Ginn was offered 1 year contract with the Bengals but he choose panthers instead.

Exactly. Gettleman got them for the prices they were worth. He didn't bargain them. People act like he's the king of negotiator. He didn't go and sign a DRC for 1yr. We'll see how good he really is when Cam's contract come.

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.

The fact that Gettleman never even brought him in for a look tells you he was not considered in the first place.

I'm sure he didn't bring Branch in not bc he wasnt "impressed" by him. But that he plans to take a DT in the draft.

I'm guessing Gettleman is more impress with Florence, DJ, Mitchell, and Ginn over guys like Nnamdi, Cason, Adrian Wilson and Jennings?

if there's anything we can be sure of it's that gettleman knows how to properly assign value to free agents. if we had the cap space and still didn't even bring him in for a look there must be a logical reason for it (as opposed to the hurney regime where hubris might play a legitimate role.)

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


Ginn could have gone anywhere else. I think Cincinnati was offering him a 1 year deal. He opted to go with us. That was a bargain deal. Getting his st skills for a year at that price, you don't consider that a bargain?

Wasn't really expecting him. No indication we ever reached out.

Cincy could've got him and their fans would've call it a bargain. What I'm saying is, what we got him for was his market price. He wasnt going to get anything better in Cincy or anywhere else. He chose us bc hes going to have more oppurtunity here than in Cincy to play on offense and ST. If I'm not mistaking, Cincy may still have Tate returning kicks/punts. It's not a bargain imo, if that's his market price.

That was essentially his whole job for the past 13 years.

Hurney really seemed to have a penchant for overvaluing his own draft picks when contract time came around,
