So leave one shithole with a history of Losing, to head to a city/team with the same sorted history? I think he'll head to a team that gives him a shot at actually winning. Even if its for a slightly smaller contact.
Fair point but money talks and Oakland has a ton of it to throw around. Plus, he's a west coast guy.
Like I said, I'd love to him here but it may be a tough sell to get him here with another pro bowl TE on the roster.
