  • Cory Redding Made Richest DT in the NFL

    http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=2938519

    He was great last year, but I didn't think this great:
    On Monday, the Lions backed up that belief by making him the highest-paid defensive tackle in football. Redding, the team's franchise player in 2007, agreed to a seven-year, $49 million contract that included $16 million in guarantees, including $13 million in signing bonus and roster guarantees.

      I don't panic about the "richest DT" thing because all that says is, he's the latest one to be signed. Contracts go up and up, that's no newsflash to anyone.

      Besides, let's see what his actual cap number is for the next 3 years before we pass judgment on how overpaid he really is.

      The Lions had to do what it took to keep him, especially after they jettisoned 2 of their other key players on D and identified him as the one they wanted to keep. Redding had the leverage and was going to make sure he got the most he could get out of them.

      I say it's a good signing but he damn well better prove he was worth it.

          Corey Redding was a beast last year. In the few games I watched him, he was a constant force. The Lions need him because the Tampa 2 is predicated on having a pass rush force at the 3-tech position.

            Im not sure Redding deserved this kind of cash-in but he had a good year and having a disruptive UT is very important to Marinellis cover 2.

              So are they going to let Shaun Rogers go? If not, how much are they going to have to pay him?

                Big Baby is still on a 6-year, $46m contract he signed in Jan 2005. Which doesn't make sense when you think about it, that's an average of $7.66m so how can Redding be the highest paid? Just goes to show, NFL numbers are always a little shady. Anyway Rogers has no place to complain considering his last year, full of injuries, bad attitude, and the strip club incident.

                  Redding is the richest in terms of total $ on the contract. That is one expensive DT duo.

                    I bet it's REALLY backloaded and he won't see half that money.

                      The Lions are a very smart and successful franchise.

                        He isn't even the best DT in the division.

                          Thats the truth there. Kevin Williams and Tommie Harris and even maybe Pat Williams but thats an iffy one there. But Tommie and Kevin are better than him.

                              I'm a little concerned about the Lions' defensive end situation. If they can coax enough production from Francis, White, Edwards and DeVries, they should have an excellent defensive unit if the young guys develop as expected.
