I'm really starting to feel (glass half empty guy here):

(b) we're going to sign him to a 4-5 year deal for over $5m/year
People are getting giddy over the name, but the same people seem to be forgetting we're in the midst of salary cap Hell.
I really hope IF we sign him to a big deal I am wrong and he goes out there and gives us 2-3 years of Pro Bowl play.
If you splice together the Ahman Green situation with the Orlando Pace situation...that's kind of the feel I get to this whole thing myself. Even if we sign him we will overpay the guy to the point where we will be in a bind soon with Cushing and KJ coming up next season and Watt shortly after that. I think on the radio I heard that Schaub, AJ, Foster and Daniels will take up 40% of the cap next season. This from a "low cost offensive philosophy".
