Default Cap room + need = crazy deals for 'crap' players

http://www.sportsline.com/nfl/story/10026630/2

its too long to post all of it but its a pretty good read, that shows how important it is for the steelers to assess their talent and get who they want locked up for the long term. even some of our average players can get some huge $$$ if they hit the market.

In the world of NFL personnel men, the talk is usually polite and nice when they're on the record, rarely taking shots at players.

Privately, it's a different story.

So when one NFC personnel director was asked for his take on the looming free-agency period, he asked that his name not be used if he were to give his honest assessment. I agreed, and here's what he said.


"It will be crap players getting big money."

That's what happens when there is a perfect storm for those free agents on the market. One part of the storm has teams flush with cap room. The other has teams desperate to fill needs. Combine the two together and you get outrageous sums of money being thrown around to players who shouldn't be getting it.

The free-agency market opens Friday, and there's already word of crazy, funny-money deals being made. It's against the rules to tamper with another team's free agent before the period officially begins, but that's a lot like speeding. We all do it, but the dumb ones are the ones who get caught.

And how can one team report another when it's doing the exact same thing?
