    Gotta love this

    It's absolutely mind-boggling the amount of money that two teams paid for guards in the first week of free agency. The Lions gave Damien Woody a six-year deal that averages $5.166 million with a $9 million signing bonus, the largest ever given to an interior lineman. Woody also gets a $500,000 roster bonus this year with a base salary of $2 million for a total of $11.5 million he will earn in 2004. Not bad for a player who has problems with his weight, has been to one Pro Bowl and ended the 2003 playoffs injured. The other team to overpay for a guard was the Dolphins with former Panthers guard Jeno James. The Dolphins gave James a six-year deal that averages $3.522 million per year with a $4.25 million signing bonus. James is also due a $750,000 roster bonus next spring, a bonus he will certainly get unless he suffers a serious injury. The Bills got the best bargain guard, Chris Villarrial, the former Bear who might be the best of the three. He got a four-year deal that averages $2.82 million, which is relatively mild compared to the other two deals. But even $2.8 million is a lot to pay for a guard. They should be developed, not acquired in free agency. And if you do want a veteran, sign that player to a two or three-year deal with a minimal signing bonus and an average of about $1 to $1.5 million. They're guards after all

    Wow, that really surprises me coming from Prickso.

    Jeno is better than Chris Vennarial disease.

    Zevo, if I post an article with Prisco ripping on the Bills, what would you comment that with?

    "Prisco doesn't know what the hell he's talkin about"

    i guess if you go by what a guy is making , he is better. But thats just the point of this article. We got high quality for a very cap friendly price. Way to Go rick keeping throwin out the cash in desperation to improve that horrid line. Face it your front office are filled with stiffs. Why do you think Marino bailed.

    How many NFL teams has Prisco ran? How many games have he coached? How many contracts has he negotiated during this time of free agency?
