    SK...nice to see you've come around. We're a little late to the party IMO, but I am glad to see us doing something. Any coincidence that you've changed your tune as we are actually making a few moves?

    KVB is beginning to look like a steal.

    KVB is a steal...as long as his knees don't blow out and end his career.

    I am all for a good contract that is less than what he wants, plus incentives to push him to where he wants, or even a little over it.

    Basically, if he's going to produce over 1000 yards a season, then I'm for paying him like it. Shoot, if he produces close and helps Bennett produce like he did in Mason's last year, I'd almost be for it, too.

    yeah G

    if the guy can come in and by next year be grab 70+ and sniff 850+ .....
    and if he can convert 50+ first downs like in '04
    then I wouldn't mind letting him roll in some dough

    but I don't like contributing a large sum to a career #2

    now, since we're on discussion of "maybe it'll work" I'll offer this

    Come around to what? I said they didn't have to sign anyone immediately and that they should get good value. As I said to begin this thread, what looks like overpaying in some cases is actually close to market value now, it's just that prices have gone up due to inflation (if you will).

    That's not to say that all the deals are for market value. The big names still do get overpaid right away. That's just the way it is.
