I am joking YES.  The point was how absurd it was that he didn't take that deal - even though it was probably really a two year deal - he will never see that kind of money again and I thought the Baltimore deal was an overpay - he is not a #1 WR in this league - he's not as good as Mohammad Sanu who we are paying $6mm/yr.  

Paying Dez is paying for the name - the past production isn't coming back - and it wasn't coming back before this achilles.  He's a #3 WR at best.

Okay good...we are on the exact same page with this post .

I see you're feeling very generous today.   :tiphat:

Brandon Marshall most likely he worked out for them Tuesday.

did someone get hurt (besides Dez) in Saints WR corps?  Why the sudden rush to sign another receiver?

They'll have to move money around again. They turned all of Terron Armstead's remaining 2018 salary into a bonus to create enough room to sign Dez

Their 3rd WR was Meredith. They moved him to IR as soon as they signed Dez

I dont cheer injuries, but I will say this...if the universe had to pick someone's Achilles to send to Hades, certainly less of a jackazz could've been selected.

Meh, his personality has nothing to do with me. I watch the player

Maybe. I just named the first player that came to mind. I didn't know they worked out both Dez and Marsh

I'm shocked someone hasn't picked up Maclin. I would think he would be a nice fit for aints as their 3rd WR, (so i hope they pass on him)

Brandon Marshall has been washed up for a few years now.

Now that brings it ALL HOME! 

Some decisions professional ball players make are so ridiculous on their face.

Dez Bryant (age 31) -  turning down the likely 3yr $21mm deal - which more than likely would have had probably $9mm guarantee.   I would be mildly surprised if Dez ever plays again now as he will be 32yrs old, diminished and coming off an achilles - if he does come back, it will be some 1yr $2mm prove-it type deal where he probably gets cut.

Le'Veon Bell (age 27 next year) - was tagged by Steelers at $14.5mm.  Skipped 9 game checks so far which would be $7.7mm  ($853k/wk).   I suppose his POV is he is saving his body.  Gurley signed a 4yr $57mm extension w/ $45mm guaranteed - which makes LeVeon seemed justified but Gurley is 24yrs old and was 2yrs from FA.   Not as much risk in that deal for RAMS given Gurley's age.   Bell is probably only elite for 2-3yrs max and RB is just a weird position to get a lot of dough - obviously the Steelers have done just fine w/o him.  I don't know that Bell ever gets that $7.7mm he forfeited back - also, as we just saw w/ Dez(granted, much older) - players coming back from long abscence can get hurt easily.
