Detroit signed Tate and already had Megatron, so he will definitely be standing in line in Motown.

 

Doubt he gets a 5 year deal here however, not at 31 yrs old

he'll be 30 next month. A 5 year deal is doable.

I seriously think he wants to. He wants to be the #1 guy and we don't have anyone. I remember him saying a lot of good things about Cam after we played them back in 2011. When he says he'd love to play with Cam. Trust me he is telling the truth


Yeah he'd definitely be WR1 here, I don't think he'd get that at the jets Miami indi or Detroit. If that's his goal we should be priority. Hopefully he knows that if he signed here it would at least help us get 2 more FA's here. I think no one being here looks bad to people considering us. Love hearing all this info rook, really hoping he makes it here. Seems like he'd fit our locker room too

I'm more worried about this organization being one that players avoid. At least we still have Cam, he is the kind of player that guys want to play with.

I'd just as soon have marginal players that want to be paid like elite players avoid this organization. I hope players that don't care about winning, just the pay check avoid this oragaization. I'd be fine with players that think they are above being evaluated avoid us as well.

I believe Rook knows him, I believe he wants to come here, I don't believe we will make the numbers work.

I think both price and length of contract will be hard yo come to an agreement on.

I hope it works out, but we are saving pennies. Two HUGE extensions are right around the corner

The thing I keep rethinking is: jones and cotchery as a possibility versus j OR c.

I have a good eye for bullshit since I live in it and I can tell you Rook is not bullshitting. I believe him.

Yep Jones would definitely be number 1 here as opposed to number 2 or 3 in Detroit and 2 in New York.

My buddy used to play for the panthers. I know the feeling OP. My buddy played DT. He would practice with Peppers and others in the morning and hangout with me every evening. I killed him with questions every night.

Not sure about the $$$ amount but DET was a 5 year deal.

Before or after they signed Golden Tate?
