He was offered a deal for peanuts after he balled out continuously the years previous. If it's your last deal of your career and you KNOW you're worth more than peanuts you will always try to test the market. It's weird that not one team offered more than the vet minimum though. This will be a 30 for 30 story on ESPN within 10 years, I would be willing to bet on that.

Absolutely not. It won't be close. Age and upside play huge roles in contracts.

I agree. I would never pursue a Peyton Manning or Tom Brady FA WR. Look at Brandon Stokely for example.

Older LTs that don't have the market they think often can be converted to right:

I'd definitely be down with pursuing one of these guys. I especially like the idea of signing Oher to a short term deal where he has to prove he still he has it while having other RTs on the team compete (Williams).

Oher is only 27 so it's not like his best football is behind him. He was just overrated because a movie was made about him. When the movie was released he wasn't even graded that high on PFF lists from what I remember, just a feel good story.
