Jake came home to make a deal and you would have to believe that we had an offer for him waiting to sign, then suddenly its taking alot of time to get done....right after all Dumervil situation unfolded. I don't think teams were expecting a shot at him. If he gets signed this would be the coup of the offseasn and no-one, I mean no-one could talk crap about our FA moves this year. But still....its head-scratching...What is that connection?
    He's from Miami.

    Home town. We're passing out lucrative contracts like their candy on Halloween. Better weather than Denver. Taxes. Playing opposite Wake. We need a pass rusher. Up and coming team. Grass not turf. Great place to retire. I'm sure there are other reasons, but that's a good start.

    Not a fan. He wants a lot of money. Rather ink Abraham or Osi for a year and draft an Edge rusher.

    Yeah he's from Miami and I am sure he isn't happy that he is being asked to take a pay cut. Then he gets cut because of the paper work and feels sour about the whole situation. So he figures to make the most out of it to make sure he gets the best deal going. I am sure he wouldn't MIND playing for the fins, but he also wouldn't mind going back to play in Denver. We have to remember he figures to have a decent shot at getting a ring with Peyton and the donkeys and he might be right. So IMO the only way we get him is if we offer more than the donkeys. No way he is going to give us some sweetheart deal just because his family is from here.

    If the money is the same he probably goes with Peyton and tries to get a ring with a team he is familiar with. He knows their system and is comfortable with the coaches and team etc. Then again if we overpay by a little bit we could get him. Personally I would rather have him and Winston, than Jake. I just don't see Jake as being a good fit for us with the zone blocking. I would love to sign Winston, Dumerville, and Grimes or Porter before the draft. We would have a real shot at competing this year.

    I am sure there are some contracts we can rescind to make it happen. Mullet Man comes to mind. Can we de franchise Starks and slide Odrick inside?

    EVERYBODY wants a lot of money. Want in one hand and **** in the other and see which one fills up fastest. He may "want" 9 million a year but he's not getting it. Just like Jake Long might want 10 million and in his mind actually think he's worth that but nobody in their right mind is going to give him 10 million. Jake Long is worth 5 million. His play the last 3 years dictates that of a 5 million dollar Tackle. He'll likely get 7 million but hopefully we arent the dumbasses giving it to him.
