Default BR:Is Dunta Robinson the Next Nate Clements?

Quote:
Supply and demand is perhaps one of the most fundamental concepts of economics as well as NFL free agency.

Demand refers to how much of a product is desired, or in this case, how much the team needs the services of said position.

Supply, of course, represents what the market offers, or in the case of NFL free agency, who is available.

A cursory glance at the Atlanta Falcons' big free-agent signing Dunta Robinson would clearly indicate that the model of supply and demand works just fine. However, there may be lessons to be learned from previous cornerback free agents like Robinson.

One of these said stories is in regards to the highest paid defensive player in the NFL not named Albert Haynesworth.

At the end of the 2006 season, the San Francisco 49ers had experienced some success and shown potential in the NFC West. With Alex Smith on the mend but showing flashes of promise, the 49ers felt they had to take a huge step in improving their team via free agency.

This is an example of why I have no problems with the lack of high profile FA signings by the Texans. Very few of them turn out well, and when they blow up in your face, it's a tough thing to recover from.

Most of the teams that won Super Bowls in the last 10 or 12 years did it with very little in the way of splashy FA signings or big name trades.

We'll see if the Jets or the Ravens end up as the exception to that rule over the next few years.

My buddy and I said Dunta could be just like Clements. Slightly over-rated cb who cashes in huge and looks like donkey anus in new city.

Clements hasn't been absolutely terrible in SF, but in no way has he played like an 80 million dollar man.

I'm pretty sure DR is going to look mighty overpaid in ATL because I dare you to name one of their secondary players without looking it up.
