I think we could've got him for 6.5 - 7 mill a season early on.... 5 mil wasn't really his worth. I believe they say, you don't offer them a contract based on how they played...but how much you are expecting to play during their new deal..how they'll grow/improve.
Goldson was on his way up. His stock rose as the 2 years went by...PlayMaker to Probowler to finally All Pro.
No disrespect, but that's a pretty idiotic saying. In the NFL, players get paid based on performance. End.
By that logic, why didn't Cliff Avril get more money? What if he just walked in door wanting $15 mil plus per year because he "expects" to have 25 sacks this season?
A: Carroll would have laughed in his face, as he should.
I do agree that Harvin is high risk/high reward though. Kid has a world of talent. Hasn't taken full advantage of it yet, but maybe he just needed a change of scenery.
