They have had a history of not making offers to FA's .... even those they want to keep , letting them make a visit elsewhere to establish their value expecting the agent and player to give them the opportunity to counter the offer.

Looks like in this case that strategy bit them in the ass.

Wish Troy Nolan was still on the team and Keo else where.

Who made that damn choice. Keo over Nolan in the first place, really retarded IMO

Everyone's favorite Special Team's coach Joe Marciano. Keo is a better ST player than Nolan.

This is a very dangerous strategy.

Hopefully Rick doesn't use this strategy when it comes time for the Cushing,Watt negotiations.

Is coach Joe a FA? Can Rick let him get an offer from another team and then let him walk?

The same guy who kept KJ over Jason Allen.

Honestly, what's the deal?

Both Nolan and Demps blew up in worse way than Keo (even after pro-rating their time.)

But I know, some of ya' got to have a scape goat as usual.

We picked Nolan up during the season, only to cut him again a few weeks later. He was awful. I was a supporter of his in 09 and 10, but he stunk it up.

Quin's contract per Spotrac:

I see 5 years, 24 million. Only a $1 million salary in 2013 ($2.05 mil versus the cap), which explains how the Lions could afford Quin and these other free agents.

Miami is another team doing this with very low first year cap hits pushing off all the hit into later years. Sounds like a recipe for disaster to me.

Looks like they are over the cap, not even couting the rookies they will have to sign.
Somebody will have to be cut or restructured.

Pretty sure he measured 5'10 at the combine. Ed Reed is 5'11. Do you not want Ed Reed either?

If you're that concerned about size then we should just go sign Taylor Mays then. I'm sure he could do it.

Elam was the best Safety in the nation this past year.
