    What is Isaac Bruce worth.

    I know this is a tough one.

    Put yourselves in somebody elses boots.

    I am sure most will find this question hard.

    If you were, say, the san diego chargers, or simply put NOT the rams.

    You wanted Isaac Bruce.

    The only way you could have him would be for a one year contract.

    $5 million dollar hit.

    One year.

    Yes or No.

    $5 is too much. And while the $4 (this year, $2 next) the whiners are paying him seems a bit much, in this market and on a two year contract, it may be about right. Ultimately, his value is whatever the signed contract says it is.

    Ithought that the 3-million a year the rams were offering was fair .

    I love Bruce and wish he would have retired a Ram, but we need to start getting younger. 5 million is too much.

    With the amount being spent on FAs this year, Bruce was a steal for the *****.

    Number 80 as a route runner 65 million

    Number 80 as a leader 145 million

    Number 80 as a clutch playmaker in a SB 250 Million

    Mr. Ram in the HOF priceless.

    Thanks Ike!

    Re: What is Isaac Bruce worth.

    Depends on which team. If we are talking about the Chargers with lots of cap space and a stacked roster already, I'd say yes. Signing an older player to a one year deal at $5 million when you have $20 million in cap space is not a bad idea if it might help them win a championship. If we're talking about a team like the *****, it really would make more sense to pick up a player who is going to be around longer.

    Re: What is Isaac Bruce worth.

    What I was atempting to do was to see if he was worth 5 mill for the one remaining year on his contract. Money wasn't really the issue with him leaving us. The reason I said pretend you are another team is because most cant detach emoitionally when asked the question.

    To another post not dissen you Rambos mate but the question wasn't how much was isaac worth in 1999 when he made the superbowl catch, or how much good he has done us, or how good he runs a route. (Steve Largent probably still runs a good route, but in his 50's aint worth $5 million, an exagerantion I know, but do you get my point?) He signed for less than that yes, but wouldn't sign for that for us, we offered him 3 mill. The only way he was staying was for the 5 million.

    Would I have been upset if he was paid the money? Hell NO!

    But is he worth $5 million?

    Business head on says no. What is Holts cap number this year?

    Its probably 1 year to early for many to answer this question for many, some may never be able to answer it though and I understand that. I guess I am lucky enouugh to be able to turn my anger around quickly.

    I voted no but from the sentimental point thatís where he is priceless. Free agency is so crazy most these guys get over paid, as far as the whiners, he worth it as a player and a mentor in a new system.

    Look what we did for Marshal he got paid the last year or so and was doing TV, why because he earned it. Bruce wants to keep playing as long as he can, thatís why he is not here. We have to move on.

    I guess to some teams out there yeah he worth 5 mil.

    Re: What is Isaac Bruce worth.

    Loved him like the brother he never knew he had. Thanks for the blood sweat and tears.
    Will never forget the clip of him in tears during the latter stages of the fourth quarter, when the Rams beat the whiners first time round in 1999.

    Ironic really...

    But.....

    He may run great routes, but nobody can run the greatest 'route' of all. And that's the one that beats the greatest 'DB' of all....'Father time'

    He is 35, considerably slower, disillusioned by the last 2 years of inept offense, and feels he has better options elsewhere. (Martz)

    Isaac Bruce owes this team nothing . . . . . .

    We owe him everything.

    I know we all don't like seeing players like Bruce let got, but we all got to remember the NFL is a business.

    Yes in a second. Much rather have him then the two other "big" name FA's that were on the market, Berrian and Stallworth.

    To Bruce, it may not have been about the money. It could be he was fed up with the front office and leadership...

    Re: What is Isaac Bruce worth.

    Just to clear up this thread a little, it wasn't $5 million it was $4 million and then the vet minimum after that so he could retire a Ram. Bruce was willing to take a pay cut, then play for the league minimum to play for and help the Rams out. And the Rams CUT him. Over $1 million dollars.

    Love Bruce I wanted him to retire a rams also. But father time catches all of us. It's time for him to hit the father time wall. I think 3mill was more than fair.
