The Saints also signed Jenkins to a reported 8 mill/yr as well, so that plays into the comp picks picture as well.Okay, but the Saints signed Emmanuel Sanders at $8 mil per year, which would be on the level of a 5th. That has to cancel out one of the compensatory picks gained. Maybe someone who knows more on this can comment, but I believe the Sanders signing would cancel up to the 3rd for Teddy and not down to one of the 6ths (Klein & Bell).
It doesn't. Jenkins was released. Only true FAs count.The Saints also signed Jenkins to a reported 8 mill/yr as well, so that plays into the comp picks picture as well.
Hopefully we'll get the answer at some point. Thinking the Mark Ingram situation for sure. Makes me wonder if agents are just extremely overpaid mindmdkersHate to see it, but at least he's in the AFC.
makes you wonder how much he and his camp were actually looking for/expecting to get for him to stall on a 7.5 mil offer to come back...
One is an in the box SS and one is a Free Safety as I’m sure you’re aware. Bell was also around the ball and forcing and or recovering fumbles a good bit too imo.If you're talking about Marcus Williams he has 10 int's.......................Bell has 1.
Man. That sucks.Hate to tell you but yes he signed for less. 3 years 6 million per year. We offered 7.5 million per year.
I think as another poster stated, Bell knew CGJG would take his playing time. I don’t think Bell wanted to stay.This should be a lesson to current Saints players and free agents alike (2 years running, and even occurred with a team leader in Mark Ingram last season).
If the Saints and Loomis make you an offer, it’s going to be a fair offer and likely at or above market value... You need to engage and respond to the team, or they will simply move on to another option. Ingram blew it, and ended up with basically the same money on a contending Ravens team..
Bell blew it, and ended up in the arm pit of the NFL for less money.
Me too. He balled out imo. And was not anti clutch.Godspeed, Vonn! I will always be a fan!
Surprising 10 career INTs so far.A good in the box Safety tho. And a nose for the ball.
How many ints does our ballhawking Free Safety have? And I’m not being a wise arse I just don’t think he has that many.
