Yea when I lived in Phoenix (the second capitol of Mexico) for a couple years I visited Mexicali clubs and in San Luis many times. Was cool.
you're not getting volmer for $5 mil per...not getting levitre for it either...whatever your comfortable with as guys value up the anty if they are the top dog guys at their respective positions...only way you'd get vollmer for that is if there was a medical red flag on his back you took a chance on...if he passes a physical $5 mil isn't gonna do it..
i don't think greg jennings is getting in the $10 mil range either...mike wallace yeah i definitely do...that 4 year difference in age is huge when it comes to a guys market...jennings i'm thinking $8 mil per
as for what i would do given those in house demands waive jake long good bye say good bye to bush make hartline and fasano and smith wait while you explore other options if they get a rediculous offer well then waive good bye to them also...
resign starks at $7 mil per over 3 years if you can get him to sign for that short a term resign clemons for 1 year $3 mil just enough that he likely doesn't get a better offer elsewhere even throw him a little bonus bone if need be watch hartlines market if it gets in the $7 mil range waive him good bye period talk with derek cox and keenan lewis to get a feel for their markets
most importantly don't be in a rush to sign your average football players...go get a guy or two that is a legitimate guy for big money and then decide off what you have left in house is a good value signing...if mike wallace is a target come correct with the offer as in double digits $10 mil per year...if jennings is the guy don't go over there with some $6 mil per offer go with what you are willing to do...if levitre or vollmer are targets come correct...get them in your building and lock it down...
supplement with the draft and those 5 picks in the first 3 rounds...no reason this team if resources are allocated properly and smartly can't turn the corner this offseason into a year in year out contender...and playoff participant
hoops scoops 2012 season ..."in 2014 ryan tannehill etches his name in stone amongst the games elite qbs"..."ryan tannehill and andrew luck will carry the afc for the next decade plus the way peyton manning and tom brady have this last decade plus"
for the love of god get a real freaking mike already!!!
Levitre is only 26 but, is a guard. I don't think any team is going to go much over the $5M.
I project these numbers based on this year's cap staying the same, with many teams over it and having to watch what they can spend. I really believe that this FA is going to be a buyer's market.
