This is a HUGE windfall victory for us. If we crumbled and broke the slotting system... we would have had 2 1st rounders next year to deal with.
Not that they would have held out, but who's to say their agents wouldn't use what happened this year's crabtree impasse as an example?
The fact that they were able to get crabtree in, show continued open arms acceptance almost prodigal son like, and NOT pay him outrages will show our future 1st rounders that we will not give in to a hold out.
We have acted fairly, ethically, and classy and this will be HUGE for anyone trying to step all over us.... We are NO LONGER THE DOORMAT OF THE NFL... Next season our high picks will sign, knowing they won't get anywhere with us. Singletary will be able to attract high profile free agents... Yes... our futures looking bright!
