NFL Free Agent News

All I know is that we have to get an upgrade at WR in this free agent market. Tons of guys out there who are better than Jericho Cotchery and Corey Brown.  Even if we plan on adding another WR early, we can't necessarily expect that guy to come in and make a KB type impact.  Last year's WR class was truly historic in terms of their impact as rookies.  It's not the norm.  Not even close to it.  There are a lot of veterans out there who would be an upgrade over what we have right now and the depth of the market should drive the some of the prices down.

Brandon Marshall signed a 3 year / $30,000,000 contract with the Chicago Bears, including a $7,500,000 signing bonus, $22,300,000 guaranteed, and an annual average salary of $10,000,000


He's only 30 years old.  Someone may trade for that contract, but it won't be us.

Not much of Marshall's contract is tied up in a signing bonus (more teams should really structure contracts this way), so the Bears don't actually take a big hit if he's cut or traded. Though if not cut or traded by the 12th his 2015 salary becomes fully guaranteed, so there's a defined window for a potential Marshall move.

If traded, new team would take on following salaries:

2015: $7.7m (Fully guaranteed March 12th)

2016: $8.1m (Not guaranteed)

2017: $8.5m (Not guaranteed, but jumps to $9.2m if team reaches Super Bowl)
