That doesn't take away the fact that he deserved the 3M his agent was playing hardball for 2 years ago and he would be amazing behind this current defense.
There were reports at that time, were he wanted 3+ years at around 5mil/yr. A Theo type contract.

If he was that good, he would have earned the starting position, but instead he now makes even less with the Rags for 2 years, than last year.

I'm pretty glad we didn't sign him.
