JD Walton set the contract baseline, so why no more signings?


Look at JD's contract and it was a signing bonus for $780k for the 80th player.  Eric Decker should already be here with about a $700k SB. Zane Beadles at #45 should come in about double at $1.4m for a SB. Then at #22 and #25 the numbers that equate are about $4-5m SB.  Last year Ayers got $9m at #16. Simple math to me.

Now if the players want more than last years slotted $ and the owners are standing fast as to 'due to the economy' then some players may not sign or play. Sam Bradford for $50m, I do not think so. Rams are going no where so let him sit.

If our players play the money game and hold out, are we OK at those positions.  Lets look;

- guard/tackle Zane Beadles. Yes Seth Olsen would probably start at LG and this would be OK. Russ Hochstein would be the ultimate backup.

-wide receiver Demaryius Thomas and Eric Decker. They would add much but Royal, Gaffney, Lloyd, Stokley, McKinney, and Willis know the system.  If they miss camp then their learning curve would bend anyway.

Yes these players are much valued but the main cog, JD Walton,  was signed early. Hum makes you wonder.
