Noted concerns about resigning Bartell. Wonders how huge deal would look to other players in lockerroom. Noted that Detroit and Denver are very interested in him (Bartell is originally from Detroit). Stated that talks should have been held in October or November for both Bartell & Atogwe. Price would have been significantly cheaper (at least for Bartell). Doesn't look like Pace or Holt are willing to restructure to open up cap room too. This whole situation is a mess! Both Detroit and Denver have a ton of cap room and can offer Bartell a top 5 contract. If he wants to stay in St. Louis offer him $7 million with $20 million guaranteed. If he is truly wants to stay he'll accept a reasonable (not overpriced) deal. GET THIS DONE ALREADY!
