    Thats just it, he's hoping he gets a $6-7M/yr deal, he doesn't need to break the bank. I think he even said I dont need to be the highest paid player, I dont want to use up all my teams cap space.

    Where the hell are you hearing that Verner only wants $6-7mil a year?

    That's a massive guess on your part. There's a huge difference in being the highest paid player and getting $6mil a year. He wants a big deal. Every player wants the best deal possible.

    Brent Grimes, at 30, is getting $8mil a year. Verner will get at least that... Probably $9mil. I'd guess 5 year/$45mil ($18mil guaranteed).

    Vern will stay for a fair price. Anything in the 7 mil-9 mil range is a fair price, anything less is an insult. The question is will we pony up? Now that we have extra cap money I'm all for resigning him. We need to get this deal done.

    Why not just resign finny... He was so great in St. Louis right? Man we know when to let a guy walk.

    But really, he would be worth paying a couple mil for a year to have on the team. He's a Titan... He should retire a Titan.

    Yea, I literally mentioned this yesterday... Said that I could see the Rams cutting Finnegan, signing Verner, and Finny returning to us for the right price.

    I doubt it happens though... He probably still wants more than he's worth.

    Tough to expect a player who's past his prime, small, and coming off a season where he only played 7 games to want to get a large contract.

    I wouldn't pay more than 2 year 4 mill kind of contract.

    While that's true, it's worth testing the waters and seeing if he wants to come home

    I agree. If we don't sign Verner (which seems likely as I expected) I want him back.
