    CB Eric Wright's deal with Tampa Bay: 5 years, $37.5 million, including $15.5 million guaranteed.


    If Wright can average 7.5 a year, then Carr will get 9 or more.

    I agree. Wright was abused last season too.

    This just shows that good #1 CBs will get 9 plus per year now on.

    The Market has set the value

    Somebody should write a post to make folks realize that really good, YOUNG CB's are gonna cost a team around $9M a year in 2012. Period. Carr is DEFINTELY $2M a year better than Eric Wright.

    Then they should let Carr walk. Use the draft and forget overpaying for a FA which only makes things worse in the long run.

    Our trouble is that once we tagged Spencer we don't have 9mil per year to give to Carr. Only the Bucs and Redskins have that kind of dough....
    See Ya Carr......

    ....He played well most of the season, but tailed off at the end: I watched at least 12 Lions games, including 2 live.....however, I agree with the above poster: he doesn't approach Carr's level of play which is real bad for us obviously.

    yep Carr will need atleast 9.5 with 30 Guarnteed. Get it done Jerry. It's not a bad deal, its the market value.

    If I find time I might make a post showing Wrights, Rogers, and Finnegans deals and how that set the market now.

    You should've made this a brand new post to make the board finally come to grips with this.

    Swallow hard, sign Carr. Draft a corner in the 1st or 2nd in this draft or the next. Franchise Jenkins a year from now. Then let him go after 1 year under the tag.

    .......but the old guard on this board....and jj........saw otherwise. Franchising his sorry butt and getting nailed by the NFL have made for the perfect storm this last week IMO

    Uh, YES WE DO. It all depends on how the deal is structured. A player making $9-10M a year doesn't usually have a $9-10M CAP HIT. That's the most important thing. He could essentially sign a deal for the minimum salary this year and backload the rest when the teams cap looks better. PLUS, if Specner doesn't sign his Fracnshie tender soon, and somebody (say a Kameron Wimbley) good becomes available, thay can always rescind the offer and the cap hit is GONE.

    This deal makes me wonder how we ever thought that Carr would sign for 7.5 mill. Something about all of yesterday's stories is starting to stink
