    Because players all over the league at all positions are getting paid more money than they are worth. The Giants however just recently signed Diehl and Tuck to long extensions that will pay them much less than they're worth.

    Osi wants a raise? Says who? He has made no mention of holding out for more money.

      C'mon, you're sticking your head in the ground if you believe that Tuck and Umenyiora are gonna be playing for cheap deals.

      And this is old news buddy http://www.nydailynews.com/sports/fo...f_holdout.html

      Once Justin Tuck hits double digit sacks a year or two more, he's gonna wanna get paid like the best also. So don't get your hopes up on having cheap pro-bowlers for long.

        Tuck was just signed to a long term deal and I don't see him wanting a new deal for another 3 years, then he'll want a deal on par with what we give Kiwi, I think he'll break out soon and we'll keep him.

              IMO a top 5 LT in the league hes a fantastic character guy and he does his job with no fuss, totally underrated, deserves every penny

                I thought we already discussed this, before the Draft even.

                It's not outrageous money for Roos though, he is very much a Top 5 LT consideration as the above posts states.
                Pugnacity, testosterone, truculence, and belligerence.

                  stole him. 43 million is nothing for a franchise LT. We have guards getting 50 million.

                  great deal for the Titans. I felt they had a top 3 oline in the league last year.

                    Granted, Roos is much more likely to see all of that $43 million than those guards will of that $50 million. I bet Roos' contract is structured so he'll see most of that money early in his contract.

                      thats also true, but id still consider that a cheap deal. the way money gets thrown around in FA, he wouldve gotten more than that on the open market.

                      its kind of surprising when you think about it, why some players don't enter FA and decide to extend contracts with their team without testing the market. they lose a significant amount of money by doing that. i guess comfort and the chance of living in one place for the rest of their career supercedes money at that point.

                        That, plus I think that the player does it in good faith that he'll be able to re-negotiate for a pay raise if he outplays the contract. It's never bad to have good chemistry between a player/agent and a front office.

                          Fear of injury? With reminders like Kevin Everett, playing the last season of a contract is a scary thing. Lose some ligaments and your not getting what your worth in the offseason. I know this, I don't want to enter FA after a season ending injury.

                            also once you are a multi millionaire, having that bit more just doesnt seem to make much difference

                              That should be the case but many players don't see it that way sadly.
