    Our free agents and unrealistic expectations

    Today on Rotoworld it's reported that Sean Smith is seeking 6 years 43 mil (Jason Mccourty $). Hartline wants 5-6 million per (less than Jordy Nelson makes). Long wants a boatload too.

    Im wondering what in the world these guys are basing the asking prices off of? Does Sean Smith, as well as his agent really think he is as good as Mccourty? Is this just a part of the bargaining process to get more money? Is it because we have a lot of cap space?

    But cmon. I love to keep our players but they have to be realistic about what theyre worth. I still havent read anything about what reggie wants.

    Honestly, let Smith and Hartline test free agency. I doubt they will get half of the amount they think theyre worth. Those numbers are extremely high.

    If Hartline wants that $$$...then **** him. I'd rather bring in Devery Henderson and Mike Wallace.

    If I was Ireland I would seriously start laughing in Sean Smith's face. Then I would walk over to the door, still laughing, and hold it open for him to walk out.

    this is where I miss players like Jason, Zach and Sam. They we're always willing to redo their contracts to bring in more talent. Seems like these guys see how much money the team has and feel they deserve it.

    Well, to be fair, they didn't lower their salaries. They re-did their contracts and got money later on or got more guarantee money. It helped the team that particular year but they didn't get less money.

    Ozzy rules!!

    Jordy Nelson scored more TDs this past season than Hartline has in his 4 year career and Jordy Nelson missed 4 games and parts of two others with injuries.

    And your point? Don't think for a moment if Nelson was a FA he wouldn't be commanding money. He would ask for more than Hartline so your comparison is mute. If Hartline is asking 5-6 then Nelson would be in the 8-9 area.

    I was expecting this from Hartline, based on his inflated numbers, and Long, based on his inflated reputation...but Sean Smith don't let the door hit you on the way out.

    Although I think there asking prices are high, I feel they will probably get the numbers they are asking for or more.
    I got $500 on the Dolphins to win the Superbowl.
