Dude the bid ended after 24hrs he's a Falcon .... He'd be your worse ranked DE anyways.
Bidding is still on going actually... When I originally said 24 hours, that was going to be inactive 24 hours. But if I did it that way it would still be on going. MLM doesnt let me end individual bids like I thought it would. I just have to end free agency all at once and then every player signs with the highest bidder.
This player however is starting to border on ridiculous and unrealistic contract. I would really not like to see this one get much higher.
So all bidding ends 8 cst ??
bidding ends at some point tonight... I am not saying when as I dont want sniping to occur
Wow .... That's some need to know Commish but in either case I want him he's slated to start in '12 for Atlanta either that share the job with Peppers in Chicago ....
ATLANTA BIDS $4,332,255 for one year
why only 1 year?
If I get him for that much now I can give him a long term deal once Abraham tests the market (33 yrs) and frees up some room... If I could I'd drop Abraham now but I'll wait and see what happens. I have good right side with a back up that can spell at both positions, brown adds to that variation.
Forgot to quote
68 tackling ability. You know that, right?
I want to avoid exploiting inflated 1 yr FA deals now to get him on the cheap re-signing him
yeah I wish I coulda got him for less but Chicago has money to burn and he's not giving in Lol. I'd give him the same amount of doe in his new deal but that's if Chicago conciets.
Actually I am about to institute a rule of guys signing 1 year deals going back into FA pool next year, no first rights of re-signings. It seems there is a possible exploit now of driving up the price on a 1 year deal, then getting the guy cheaper after resigning. To me that breaks the essence of competitive free agency
I'm banking on his speed pursuit and finnesse to get the job done. Not at all into wasting time progressing cats to see if they worth picking up He plays now. I'll wait to see if he Apot helps me get a chip.
Yo no bullshit I was gonna suggest that ... Check it ... If you sign a player for 4 mil the resign can't be less than 2 mil of the previous contract unless he's in his 30's and he regressed considerably..... Thoughts
that might be reasonable, but it seems the TMFL has discovered that their 1 year inflated #s stick and they ask for about 80% of that long term to resign, so the rule may not be necessary after all...
