    You can say the exact same thing about the vast majority of players who sign long term deals. Most deals are back loaded and thus as the player ages and play declines the salary goes up and fans complain about them being overpaid.

    Unlike CJ though I don't think that Verner's skills are going to decline as much with age. Verner's game is based off of intellect, instinct, and being a solid tackler. I do not think that these will decline over time like a RB with elite speed who loses a step.

    I think Verner compares to Ronde Barber who had a very long and solid career.

    If I'm the GM I try my hardest to keep the secondary together. I don't want the front 7 learning a new scheme and a bunch of new guys in the secondary trying to mesh with each other.

    If we don't resign ATV, look for the Titans to grab Cortland after the Rams release him :)

    Just listened to an interview with Delanie Walker, he's dying to have Pollard back, but by the sounds of his voice he seems like he's come to terms that Verner will cash in with a new team.

    Not good if you can't keep your best guy around for an entire staff upgrade.
    At least we won't be tagging Griffin again..

    I hope he comes back, He's my favorite DB for the titans. He's good IRL, but in a subtle way, but in Madden... he picks off what seems like 50% of the passes thrown his way. :p I like that.
