Waiting around in free agency would probably have cost him money. we were too busy chasing a dream that didnt even want to talk to us as well as signing a cb that has never been a good starter over a season
    he wasn't signed to be a starter in Miami

    If thats true then we were even more stupid to pay him almost 6 million a year wouldnt u agree. He played for basically minimum the previous year then we pay him like 6 times as much the next year , helluva deal.
    We actually dont know what he was signed for since they decided to make him a starter right away
    I also never said we signed him to be a starter but its a bad business decision to sign a nickelback for more than 5 million a year. lets see invest minimum salary at wr starter but this much at nickelback.

    Long: 8m$
    Smith: 6m$
    Hartline: 5M$
    Bush: 5m$
    Starks: 6M$
    Clemons: 3M$
    Fasano: 3M$

    It leaves us with only about 10M$ in cap space to sign our draft class and to spend on other free agents, not enough.

    So you better cut Marshall and Patterson to give us another precious 7.5M$ more, then you could sign someone like Jennings or Bowe + our draft class...
    I've got a better idea. Cut MARSHALL and INCOGNITO. MARSHALL's history because of herniated discs, and INCOGNITO doesn't really fit the z-b-s. Right there, you save close to $10 Million in cap room, if I remember correctly, and I think I do. As to PATTERSON, you can't cut ALL of our CBs: that would be silly. Keep him for a while and see what happens in F/A and the Draft.

    U can when they have a history of being as below average as all of them. Patterson for cheap is ok but for 5 million its horrible

    I am sure if they decide they want to keep Patterson long term they will redo his contract to pay him less money per year. Don't see them carrying him at that high of a salary, but his contract is perfect in the fact that there is no dead money tied to Miami if they do cut him.

    The problem with that scenario is he really has no real motivation to restructure because if he gets cut and resigns with another team he would likely make more money since he would receiver more money from the idiotic browns that signed him to that contract. As bad as the marshall contract was this was a worse one because Patterson has never showed much

    your math is a little fuzzy, his contract in Arizona was one year for $3.5 million, in Miami he got three years for $5.3 per year. not quite 6 times the amount. also, they traded Davis in August so 5 months later isn't exactly deciding to make him a starter "right away". starting free agents signed for $10 million per year last year, not sure why half that for a nickel is such bad business

    If he signed a 1 year deal, then he was NEVER penciled in as the starter.
