Akeem Hicks just signed a 4/48 w Bears


Recommended Posts

Just because it's our week one opponent,  but the Bears just signed Akeem Hicks to a 4yr/48 mil contract with 30 mil guaranteed?  That seems a bit high to me for a 7 sack guy. He's good but giving contracts like this to players that are good keeps you from signing GREAT players. We get a lot of talented role players for cheap man. They have two other defenders that have 7 sacks, and imagine giving them the same contract?

You, me and the entire NFL knew this except for the Bears' staff despite the 49ers 'toying' with them. "Shanahan'd".

 

John Lynch is a shrewd dude. He+ Shanny will turn that franchise around as long as York stays out of their way.

Grady will get that type contract .... That's the price range for young good DTs .... 10-12 mil

 

 

 

 

Stephon Tuitt got extended today also. Some of these cats are gonna faint when Grady gets extended. Today's market is 10-12 mil a year. It will be more when its time for Grady to re-up.

7 sacks for a 3-4 DE is good and so is Hicks. The pass rush in a 3-4 defense tends to come from your 2 OLBs. Which in their case Pernell McPhee, Willie Young, & Leonard Floyd.
