    Nate Clements

    It seems like everyone is rumored to be going after Nate Clements once FA starts. A lot of teams have money to spend (like my Titans) and I'm trying to figure out where he'll go. My money right now is on either the Titans or 49ers.

    I watched him play against Tennessee in week 15 this year, and he seems worth the hype. I'm curious as to why Buffalo won't re-sign him since they obviously have the cap room.

    Does anybody have any insight on Nate Clements?

    my turn.

    as far as washington goes. imo playing for williams and grey is the very last thing nate wants to do. he hated that scheme and to date playing in that scheme is the reason many people doubt him and his abilities. id say it wasnt the scheme but the people that were running that scheme. dont count on nate wanting to play in washington.

    as far as the cover 2 is concerned with the bills and majority of other teams as well. yes the bills run a cover 2 as their base scheme BUT the bills did not run that scheme exclusively. after the break last season when the coaches had a chance to look more at tape from the 1st half of the season the bills changed a couple of things. the bills didnt run as much cover 2 as many people think, the bills actually made nate a lock down corner and had him locked on a teams number 1 reciever if he was worthy of that attention and the bills ran a fair amount of 44 which demands you have a solid cover corner.

    as far as nate being whatever ranked corner in the league. given nates age, size and ability the only corner that is hands down better than nate at this point in time is champ bailey. after this year there is good argument for hall but that is it. you have to look at the scheme a player is in because that scheme will tell you what a player is and isnt allowed to do. but more to the point, nate made a comment what 2 ... 3 years ago about his self worth and people found it somewhat offensive that he thought so highly of hisself. look at the corners around the league that have gotten serious money, as a player you look at them and say im better than him and im better than him. based on what they are getting i should be getting this. that is all that it was about. nate being paid on the same scale as his peers. nothing more nothing less. nate feels he is champ bailey type range because he feels he is that good and there is the argument that he actually could be that good.

    Ya'll don't have nearly as much money to spend as you think...

    Oh yes we do...trust me we got enough to get him, a few other people for depth and sign a first round top 10 pick
    Haha, you have less than $5 million in cap room...
    They do every season, but still gets around it.
    It's too bad they always suck.
    Yeah

    Wow I would love to see him come to the Saints, but I seriously doubt that we have the spending amount to outbid the other teams for him...especially if he's looking for something close to Bailey money.

    I hope this doesn't mean he is going to get Champ Bailey money
    He will likely will make that, in a corner starved open market.

    Do you have any links to calling them "the best corner" in the NFL? Because I have one for Clements. He can praise people for being good corners, but did he declare them the best?
    Al Harris - http://cbs.sportsline.com/nfl/teams/report/CIN/9006407
    Johnson called Harris the best corner he has faced so far.
    DeAngelo Hall - http://www.bengals.com/news/news.asp?story_id=5621
    Hall said he was honored to hear over the summer that Johnson called him the best corner in the league.
    Champ Bailey - http://www.cincypost.com/bengals/200...0-26-2004.html
    Obviously, Bailey isn't going to lose his confidence. He still thinks he's the best cover corner in the league, which is exactly what Johnson said earlier this week.
    Bravo
    I'll give you Champ and Hall, but Harris was only "the best corner he faced so far.

    Anyway, this is not the point. The point is that Nate is one of the top 5 CB's in the NFL.

    There are something like 20 teams with more than $20M to spend this year, and not a lot of quality players to spend it on. There are even a few teams in the $30-40M range.

    The Redskins have $5M.


    Wake up....there is zero chance of Clements landing in Washington. They'll be out of the bidding after the first round.
