    fahkhir brown and will allen

    note that will allen got 5 million guaranteed, double what mr. fahkhir got. Will allen got starters money. fahkhir did not. Case closed once and for all.

    Re: fahkhir brown and will allen

    GC you may be right but taking the will allen signing as case closed is a bit much. You can't take a single signing and assume that is the market. That's like saying Bruce is paid back-up WR money because TO got twice as much in bonus and 1st year salary. I can hear the argument, but Bruce is a #2 WR and TO is a #1, well you can make that same argument on the corners.

    Brown may well be getting #3 corner money, but it takes more data than the Allen signing to 'close the case'.

    Definitively, maybe it will take more, but intuitively, this case was ALREADY closed. Brown was paid solid back-up money. There's no corner, signed as a starter, accepting that little.

    Re: fahkhir brown and will allen

    I appreciate your point. I was using will allen as the final example of multiple non star starter signings of guys that got considerably more money than fahkhir brown. I didnt mean to suggest that will allen in a vacuum proves the point, but thanks for the clarification.

    Hope he is starter

    My hope is he comes in surprises and becomes a very good #2 corner, easing pressure to resign or sign a new FA corner for next year, and allows Bartell or a newly drafted CB to be the new #1 corner.

    Now that's money well spent.
