    Agreed. This is some bull ****. A lot of the fun that the onset of free agency brings every year is dwindling down.

    Like people were suggesting earlier, this whole franchise tag thing needs to go. If you want to keep a certain player that badly, throw a big money, long term deal his way or be prepared to let him walk.

      Per ESPN Nnamdi Asomugha just got a 3 year deal done with the Raiders.

        See, I like that much better than just tagging him again. A rare respectable/smart move by the Raiders.

          Three year? That's curiously stupid by the raiders if you ask me. Why not lock him up? His price is only going escalate even more to after that three year contract is up. Scrabble is worth the cash, I would have gone 5 providing he wanted to stay in Oakland that long.

          What do the vikings and marijuana have in common? Every time you put them in a bowl
          they get smoked.

            From what I read on it, the deal is basically going to pay him in the first two years what he would have earned being the team's franchise player those same years.

            So really, it's like he's just being franchised for 3 straight years, without that title and with some security for at least those 3 years.

              Yeah, but Asomugha gets screwed when he gets franchised. He gets paid the average of the top 5 corners in the league but he's the #1 corner, so it doesn't make sense for him financially.

                I like the move he is going to be 28 even if they gave him a 6 or 7 year deal no way he plays out that deal he would either get cut or traded or have to rework his deal in 4 years any ways.

                It might not be a great move for NA but it is a great move for the Raiders they keep there best player for the rest of his prime years.

                  This isn't a running back. Corners can play well past 28 * Woodson plug*, they should have signed him for five.

                    Yup. I really can't stand it.

                      Some CB's can sure but most start to having trouble keeping up with younger faster WR's and do you really want a guy in the middle of the biggest part of his deal when that happens?

                        Nnamdi Asomugha isn't "most" cornerbacks.

                          Isn't Scrabble a bump and run master? That's where speed doesn't matter.. AKA Al Harris.

                            All I'm trying to say is if they gave him a 6 or 7 year deal no way what so ever he is still playing at the same level at the back end of that deal.

                            I'm not knocking the guy at all he is a GREAT player best CB in the game but its just football it happens to every one.
