    He deserves a new contract, but not anything more than what is market value for a slot guy. He isn't going to get, nor should get, any extra money simply because he wasn't making much as a UDFA.

    It actually did seem clearer in my head than it does in my post!

    You obviously have to look at past performance to try to predict future performance, but you can't pay a guy more for future performance because you think he was underpaid in the past.

    An analagous situation is when fans want to reward an all-time great player for past performance. For example, Bears fans wanted to meet Uhrlacher's asking price because he has been such a great Bear and he "deserves" it. But his projected future performance is only worth a one year $2M deal, and that's what the Bears offered him. That's why he's on the street now.

    I agree with that. However, I do not agree with giving him more than that because he outperformed his old contract.

    I'm confused, the OP has to do with Bowe's numbers.

    Well I was simply implying that he deserves to get paid. Maybe not $10 million from us persay, but yeah.

    MUCH better.
