Re: Can We Talk About the Draft?
Yeah, Samardzija is getting something like $7.75m but it's all backloaded, just as an NFL contract would be, and he wants to play football.
Just think, what if we would have gotten WR Matt Jones instead of TE Heath Miller. I love having Miller but the TE is just not used for much more than a blocker in our scheme. Jones would have produced more for our offense and we could have used our #1 pick last year on a LB who might just be starting now and ready to replace Joey next year.
In free agency I think we should attempt to get OL Leonard Davis from the Cardinals, Gandy and Steinbach are also possibilities. LB Adalius Thomas is a possibility but I think he's going to get big bucks from some team. Some want another veteran RB, Ladell Betts or someone else but I think Willie P. is our starter and Najeh is a decent #2.
