Originally posted by KRS-1:Atlanta gave up two 1st rounders, a 2nd and two 4ths to go from 27 to 6 for Julio Jones.
Carlos Rogers got a 4 year 29 million dollar deal to resign here and you think T-Brown is gonna get 4 year at 19?
And Sanders and Arthur Jones will command much more money on the open market than those deals.
For starters Julio Jones was a better prospect IMO than Sammy Watkins. For 2 Baalke is a smarter GM than to break the bank like Atlanta did. You brought up a good example but so did I. Like I said we moved up 13 spots last year by only giving up a 3rd round pick, who's to say we can't move up an additional 12 picks this year by giving up a 2nd too? Oakland moved down 9 spots last draft and only gained a 2nd round pick so I don't see why they wouldn't make a trade that gives them 2 1st rounders next season and 2 more high picks this season for a team that is rebuilding.
Emmanuel Sanders won't demand much more than 5 mil a year. What he demands and what he signs for are 2 completely different things. He's coming off a season which he only had 740 receiving yards.
Arthur Jonnes had 4 sacks last year and a pretty good year. He might ask for more money but if he wants the chance to play for a contender than he will sign for less. We got Dorsey for a steal so why wouldn't we be able to do the same with jones?
As far as Rogers goes.. We know the 49ers have made a habit of overpaying for free agent corners. There was Rogers and there was also Clements some years back. They won't make the same mistake with brown. Brown is good but not great. The 49ers tried to make it right with brown after he got screwed by his former agent, so Brown might take less money to stay with a contender as well.
Talib, one of the best corners in the league was only making 5 mil a year last year and brown is NOT the caliber player that Talib is.
Thanks for the critique but do me a favor and stop acting like you have some inside knowledge into what GMs will or will not do, or will or will not trade. You like the rest of us can only guess.
