I told you. Anything near the going market rate. Why is this hard to grasp? It doesn't have to be this magic exact number that you want so badly. We do not know if that's what they asked for, but we also don't know if they didn't try asking for it either.
well obviously. They paid Rolle this ridiculous amount, doesn't mean he was worth it. The market dictates that these guys get these exorbitant amount of money. but like I said, it doesn't mean its what they are worth as players. I like Cruz and I hope he is kept, but im worried that they will give him too much as a result. End of story.
that Rolle contract is so heavily over exaggerated by Giants fans
so your saying like 25 mil guaranteed, which would probably be like a 5 years for 50, 25 guaranteed?
hmm yea, High teens in guaranteed. I dont think its too outrageous when you look at what we threw at canty and Rolle. Cruz actually produces. yea I think hes worth around that, but we dont have the money.
That 50 mil deal he was rumored to get. He aint worth that much to us. but we've given out ridiculously huge contracts to players before like: Rolle, Diehl, Canty, Boley, Webster etc... We better not do that here.
Diehl and Webster were huge parts of two superbowl runs.
Webster DEF earned it and then came back and took a cut the year he fell off.
Diehl had a VERY realistic contract. It all depended on where he played most of the season
