I'm firmly in the Crabtree cap assuming he's looking for reasonable number 1 money. I think the drop off between Crabs and lets say average WR is much greater than Iupati and average guard. Kap is good enough to create time. Crabtree is a very special talent.So is Iupati, but I just dont think he effects the game the way Crabs does.
Yea I don't see how any person could honestly believe a top 10 guard affects the game the same way a top 10 receiver does. He probably isn't going to want reasonable money and to be honest neither are Kaep and Aldon. What makes you guys think Aldon isn't going to ask for the moon? Mario Williams signed a 96mil contract a couple of years and he had half the production Smith had. Clay Matthews is getting paid 66mil. Hmmmm. I wonder if Aldon is willing to play for the pennies were speculating he will when other studs that he clearly outperforms are getting the big money. Would you pay him a 66mil? Flacco, Romo, Rodgers at 100mil. Would you pay Kaep 100mil? I don't envy the FO because the next couple of year are going to have some hard decisions. I think it funny people want to right Crab off as if he's the one that's going to want to break the bank.
Problem is those first three guys are top ten at their position....Crabs isn't, but you can bet you @$$ he will wanna be paid like he is.
