Again three years is pretty standard. Watson's contract was 4 years and it was even bigger. Are you saying we shouldnt have signed him? We dod get his draft contract but his first year he went down with an injury and he spent tye next year as a tackling ,dummy so can you really say those extra years helped?Didn't say it had to be a 10 year contract. But 3 years? And after what you paid to get him? They already gave up 2 1sts, and made him the highest paid lineman. Where do they go from there? Yeah, he's the highest paid until the next, which may still be him.
In a perfect world we would have had the Oline in place BEFORE drafting our franchise QB but that requires long term planning which you can't do with the GM and HC having a pissing contest.
