Default Deal or no deal: Which NFL players deserve more cash?

There are plenty of players skipping out on the offseason practices in search of new contracts. For most, the absences represent the only leverage a player under contract legitimately can exercise.

Some who want new deals have decided to be cooperative, playing along with the wishes of the team in hopes they eventually will receive the new deal they covet.

Not every guy who wants a new contract deserves it, but plenty do. So let's look at five situations involving two players from the same team—one player who should get a new deal and another one who shouldn't.

DeMeco Ryans and Owen Daniels,
Houston Texans

The Texans had a solid draft in '06. Beyond making the right decision with the No. 1-overall pick (taking Mario Williams over Reggie Bush and Vince Young) emphasis mine , the Texans landed middle linebacker Ryans in Round 2, offensive tackle Eric Winston in Round 3 and tight end Daniels in Round 4.

Ryans, as a second-round pick, signed a four-year deal. Daniels signed a three-year contract.

And so Ryans is stuck with a base salary of $535,000. Daniels, in contrast, received the highest possible restricted free agency tender, with an offer of more than $2.7 million for one season. Daniels has yet to sign the offer, which means he wants a long-term deal worth much more than $2.7 million per year.

But that's good money for a tight end, especially when players picked in '06 who signed four-year deals are languishing at a much lower level.

So Daniels should be thrilled with $2.7 million, and Ryans should get a long-term deal now.

I would say OD. Yes, Ryans deserves alot too, but he has kinda gotten flat since the first year. I do not see alot of improvement.

Actually the article disputes its own basis. The 2.7 mil tender is ALREADY a "new deal" for OD, and they agreed that DeMeco has earned his check as well.

Now, if this article had paired either of them with Dunta...
