    Brent Grimes signed a 4yr. 32 mil contract with the Fins. 16mil is guaranteed.

    Would you give this sort of contract to Verner?

    I think it certainly sets a nice frame work for what the CB market will be set at. Grimes was felt by many to be the top CB that could hit FA this yr.

    McCourty's contract was 6yr. 44.26mil with 17 mil guaranteed. I'd like to give Verner a deal just like McCourty's, but would be fine with one like Grimes got.

    Yea I'd make that deal.

    I expect Verner will want a 5 or 6 year deal worth $10mil a year though. Too much.

    I would do 5 year/$40mil at the absolute maximum (still $8mil a year). Even then, it's iffy. We need to invest money in pass rushers.

    Nope.

    We're already paying one #2 CB that kind of money. No sense in paying another #2 CB that kind of money.

    Verner getting $8M/yr is about as high as I'd go. He's good but not that good.

    I think 2 is a little high.

    I'm probably gonna get hung for this but I think Grimes is better than Vern.I really wanted him last year when he was dirt cheap in FA. Not sure I would do that same deal with Vern but it's probably what it would take to keep him.
