Great signing for the Saints. Grant and Will Smith are studs and this defense is being built around them. It seems like a lot of money at face value but exactly like the guy was saying if you understand the nature of the cap and the economics of this league you understand it is a good deal and Grant wouldnt have had any problem getting a deal that big or bigger if he hit the open market.
He's the most important player on your defense from the unbiased perspective of a Bucs fan....
Good thing he's now a Nickelback. :D
Considering that Patrick Kerney who is 2 years older than Grant got 19.5 Mil guaranteed, I don't think this is an entirely bad deal. He's a big part of the Defense, and I'm sure Loomis structured the contract to be backloaded, or have a bunch of lucrative incentives in the later years.
Good move by the Saints to lock him up the only bad thing is if he got that much how much will Will Smith want when he is a FA?
We'll worry about that in 2010. :)
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.''
