Not sure if anyone will be interested, but I am super excited.
We are combining my 50th and my wife's 50th next year and having the trip of a lifetime by coming over to America in October and will be taking in the Jets game in New York, then coming down to Indianapolis for the Bills game at home.
We cannot wait, and look forward to taking in the atmosphere of a home game.
Hopefully we will be on a winning run when we come over.
It also is implied that Boston wanted both the red carpet treatment AND a big contract offer in order to feel valued.
He never said anything about the money offered to him by the Colts (if any offer was made at all).
But he did criticize our visit and commended Arizona rolling out the red carpet for him. But then he said he was disrespected by the Cardinals likely offering him something close to the veteran minimum
The problem here is that if he and Reid and Vaccaro really thought they would be $7-$9M a year players as he said to Ed McCafferey, then they were completely duped by their agents or anyone that let them think that.
That would make them top-12 safeties by annual average. Honey Badger got $7M.
Otherwise all the guys that signed singed for less. Burnett signed for under $5M a year and he is a more well known guy than Boston generally speaking.
Based on what most of these guys signed for, there is no way Boston and Vaccaro and Reid and others were going to get even $4M a year. The guys that signed early in free agency, which is when the most dollars are spent to sign guys quickly, went for $4-$5.5M
The best these guys can hope for are contracts in the range of Mike Adams or HaHa Clinton-Dix or even Reggie Nelson.
That is $2-$2.5M a year. If Boston thought he was gonna cash in at $7-$9M then he is probably * that he is getting offered around 1/3 of what he thought he'd make. That is because he got some bad intel if he really thought he would make that.
I think Boston is a good player, but I doubt the Colts would go out and pay him more than they are paying
Hooker. And since Hooker is making around $3.1M annually, he couldn't have expected to get crazy bank from us.
I just think if these guys want to play they are going to have to play for whatever their market is. You don't want to make $1-$3M because that is a slap in the face, then you sit the year and make nothing. Harsh reality but that is what these guys are faced with.
