3. Jackson Jeffcoat, DE, Texas
4. Weston Richburg, C, Colorado State
5. Rashaad Reynolds, CB, Oregon State
6. JaWaun James, OT, Tennessee
So lets do the math:
Nicks: base salary this year : 750,000
Cruz: base salary this year: 490,000
Hixon: base salary this year: 615,000
Barden: base salary this year: 565,000
Randle: base salary this year: 390,000
Jernigan: base slary this year: 465,000
That is one CHEAP WR corps compare to their production. Good job Front Office, well done..
Thats pretty amazing that we have all 6 of our main WR's this year for only 3.2 Million. Thats what some teams pay for only ONE WR.
Vincent Jackson base salary this year: 11 MILLION holy camels!!
Brandon Marshall base salary this year: 9.3 MILLION wowww we have a deal here!!!
I watch post after post criticizing the organization for not playing this guy and that guy, insulting the coaches who do this for a living when we don't have a clue about anything other than what we see on the field on game days. There are always reasons some players don't break through and this is a perfect example of why coaches should get the benefit of the doubt.
First, someone says not motivated. Next, he has an "attitude problem." Are you armchair coaches in the locker room establishing this information first hand?
Did Eli have an attitude problem when he stunk up the place in his first year, when he was thrust into the lineup to gain experience and showed facial expressions that some didn't like?
