Re: Snead talks a big game

I see it differently, 89.

They have extended star players and they have certainly not been reluctant to sign top FA’s and trade for top players since ‘12.

Big Whit
Saffold
Sully
Woods
Cooks
Brockers
Easley
Barron
Talib
Peters
NRC

Plus, Joyner was tagged this year and TruJo the two years before that.

Not to mention that they have star players too young for extension yet, so it’s a little early to criticize them for not extending the youngsters.

To imply that they can’t or won’t retain players due to salary cost seems very inaccurate. They spend right up to the cap annually, in fact.

As to AD’s contract? We don’t even know what we don’t know. For example, what if AD is holding out until after Mack signs? Or is insisting on that rumored deal breaking opt out clause? Or some other unknown thing that we have no way of knowing?

Finally, since when are fans to be kept informed of intimate details in contract negotiations? This thing will get done when it gets done. I recommend that we relax and leave this to the professionals while we enjoy this upcoming camp and season. It looks like it’s gonna be a doozy.

Edit: I omitted Hekker, Zuerlein, and McQuaide in my extension list above. Oops!

  Suh is 31. Several of the best are 30...

  Maybe that's their plan - which is sad.
