a state that has added jobs because the minimum wage will go up in the future is not really proof of the minimum wage working.so yes proof is still needed.so unemployment went up during the economic downturn?
Besides Gronk, Lafell is one of the few veteran WR for Brady to throw to. Lafell would have had a similar season if he was a Panther last season.
Cotchery was paid nearly half of what Lafell signed (3-year, 9 million.) on top of that, avant got close to 1 mil. So we roughly got two for one and we needed that money to sign rookie contracts.
Getting Smith off the roster saved 2 million last year but had he not been cut before June 1st his 2015 contract would have kicked in and been on the books for like 11 million.
In hindsight, it probably would have been better just to bring Lafell back but there must have obviously been some problems between him and Cam or Getts would have matched. Not that Lafell would have passed on the chance to play for a legitimate Super Bowl contender.
Oh well. Concerning Ginn, no way he was worth to is or to his new team the contract he signed, but we do need a player with the type of ability he showed flashes of when he was a panther.
