In the Front Seven Is Fine discussion, there was a tangent on using the Pats available cap space, and questions on how much Talib will earn. Let's focus on that. Here are the payday's from last year's top five free agent corners: WalterFootball.com: 2012 NFL Free Agents - Cornerbacks Ladarius Webb - Re-signed with Ravens (6 years, $50 million; $10 million guaranteed) Brandon Carr - Signed with Cowboys (5 years, $50.1 million) Courtland Finnegan - Signed with Rams (5 years, $50 million) Carlos Rodgers - Signed with 49ers (4 years, $29.3 million) Brent Grimes - Franchised by Falcons (1 year, $10 million) The average is $9.1mm for five years. In the same overview, Talib is listed as the #2 corner available in free agency. WalterFootball.com: 2013 NFL Free Agents - Cornerbacks You have to assume he is looking for something in the range of $50mm (five years at $10mm). Possibly, due to some of the history, $9mm. Any agent will use those datapoints from 2012 as the most relevant comparables.
