Not every big FA signing is a huge failure you goon and you know this dale.
Reggie White, as well, did pretty good when he went to the Packers.
At that time, everybody thought he was crazy for leaving the Eagles and going to the Packers. Whoops.
As has been pointed out, this is probably the last contract for Aso. So why not be the one who gives it to him. Get at least 4 years out of the guy. He has virtually ZERO tread on the tires--He's not a DL or a LB who has had punishment dished out onto him. He's basically ran down the field and watched the plays happen 30 yards or more away from him.
I think Aso becomes a member of the Ravens, though. Which, IMO, makes the Ravens the best AFC team immediately. That defense would be elite overnight. It was already pretty stout. This would make them superior.
