Bottom line: this thread is very telling.. Hitchens was a legit choice apparently.
Yeah is he going to take Lee's spot? No. Special special teamer 4-life
I don't think the Livings and Bernadeau signings were bad decisions. Livings was good for the 1st few games and then had some type of injury and his play declined.
Bernadeau showed in the 2nd half of 2013 that he is a good player when healthy. The problem was that he had multiple injuries in 2012 and another injury coming out of training camp in 2013.
Neither player had a significant injury history prior to being signed.
Come on. The reality is that Livings was the worst lineman on the Bengals team and wasn't pursued by anyone else. Fans were happy to seem him go and surprised he landed any contract let alone the one he did.
Bernadeau was a back up. Yes, a back up on the Panthers that weren't exactly bringing thunder running the ball at that time.
They weren't worth that money unless the demand by a team that had no one needed them as they transitioned to a ZBS.
They didn't get paid starter money. Bernadeau's deal averaged in the mid 2M range and Livings in the mid 3M range.
What's your source?
3 million is in the mid-range for starter. 2 is in the top 20 for starters. They were both worth less
2M is not in the top 20 for starters.
