    You wanted him at THAT price, dia? Pass.
    The whole world loves neophyte athletic tight end Jimmy Graham from Miami with the 95th pick. "Best pick in the draft,'' one AFC coach told me. "Give him time, and in that offense, he'll be better than [Jeremy] Shockey by the start of next year.''

      I'd say more like a fist in the ass than a middle finger.

        That is a kinda deal he should have got but his agent knew some team would over pay in FA and some team did a B player getting A money.

          Pretty much everyone is getting more money than they should right now.

            I know Jerry "I have never had a 1000 yards in season" Porter getting 30 million what a joke.

              I don't like the deal but considering we were desperate for some WR help it's understandable. I'd rather have this money in Berrian than Williamson who had a 49 Million dollar contract unders us I believe.

                Sounds like something Minnesota would do... I'm just surprised it wasn't Carlyle Holliday...

                  Does this mean the Bears will offer Lance Briggs more money?

                    Yes, which makes me very sadfaced.

                      Yeah I think Briggs is on his way back to Chicago.

                      He's definately a better player than Bernard, it's arguable which was more important for our success (or lack thereof) next year.

                        Try being a Chiefs fan our big off season move so far is picking up FB Oliver Hoyte off waviers from the Cowboys.

                            Makes sense now that they don't have to pay Berrian.

                            I still hope the Saints can get him somehow.

                              We overpayed, so what? Everyone overpays in FA and we needed a WR to strech the field. If we weren't going to pay him somebody would have. We have the cap space to do the deal and it is not hurting our team, so why all of the complaining. The fact is no WR in the draft will be better then Berrian will be next year and we cannot afford to wait a couple years for a WR to develop. We had a need, we addressed that need. So what if we won't have 30 mill of cap space next year. Who the hell really needs that kind of cap flexibility.

                                Ha ha. That made me laugh out loud. :D

                                My condolences.
