Lattimore is getting elite money. His agent won't take home discount, because secondary corners are prized free agents. Lattimore is just too inconsistent to be paid top 3 at his position. He will get paid. He doesn't have the killer instinct unless he plays against a Mike Evans every week. You don't pay top dollar for that.

You know why we pay Michael Thomas? He brings it every game.

You know why we pay Alvin Kamara? Because he brings it every game.

You don't pay top 5 money for a player that isn't motivated to play every week.

Get picks. Draft a QB. Draft Lattimore replacement.

If Lattimore takes a top 10 deal. That would be fair, but highly unlikely.

Doom and gloom already? It's only week two.

And this is why I hate losing. It’s when we get these reactionary posts on a player we were just praising a week ago for his elite shut down performance.

Latimore is going nowhere. Nor should he. How quickly we forget the many years we scoured the Earth for even a serviceable CB.

It’s one loss. Shawn isn’t the only Saint that wet the bed tonight. Quite a few need to be riding back to the N.O. in diapers.

Exhibit A Salary Cap
Exhibit B Lattimore Market Value

This isn't a reactionary. I've been going through the numbers since the horrendous Peat deal. Lattimore would only be retained at his market value if he got over his consistency issues. He clearly hasn't.

The picture is clear as day. Lattimore just isn't worth the money that he'll command. trade him in the offseason.

He’s getting top money regardless of what kind of season he’ll have.
We talking top money as in CFL or AFL money, because players that play like dookie don’t get max contracts.
