    A quick google brings up this:

    NFL Today: Arians, Whisenhunt pace coach updates; Kelly staying at ND - CBSSports.com - the actual part stating the 8m is in there.

    He'll get more than $8M. I could see close to 10. And I wouldn't touch him as a DE.

    The off putting part in the link is " concerns about Kruger's decision-making off the field"

    Colts is my guess at where he lands.

    10 million? yeah no...rather pay 5-6 million for reed...but if they intend on letting kruger go...reed will be next on radar besides ellerbee


    I still feel as if the pats will over pay for someone this offseason. Not major..but will pay a pretty penny for someone

    at 8-10 mill for 4-5 years?

    Spend that $$ on a big time WR or CB before kruger

    The pats paid 35 mill for 5 years on adalius thomas back in the day. Wonder if kruger would take that even though AT was a LB

    If we're spending that kind of money on the front 7, I'd rather it be for a big upgrade in the position next to Wilfork -- as that's the weakest link.

    He's not a DE, so no.

    If we're going to ball out on a FA, I'd rather spend the money on Melton.

    x2

    Abraham might come cheap, and we could use the #1 pick on a real DT. There are a number of good ones coming off the board this year from #20-40 range.

    That would be a much better use of resources and we'd still have money left over for another WR - such as Danario Alexander to go with our draft pick in the 2nd round Hunter, and our other FA buy: Hartline.

    Franchise tagged, unfortunately. He would have been a fantastic fit.

    Restricted free agent, reportedly getting a first round tender

    Most sources rank Kruger as a top-10 FA. If he gets paid anywhere near a top-10 FA, we will stay far away and for good reason. Whichever team does that will regret it.

    Kruger interest anyone?

    He isn't worth what he'd ask for IMO. He is sub rusher who played opposite Suggs and next to Ngata.. Not much of an upgrade over Ninkovich if you ask me.

    He had 9 sacks to Ninkovich 8. Only 1.5 in first half of the year in which Suggs was out.

    If he can produce like the second half of last season, then yeah. He really only has that half of a season plus the playoffs of production, though.

    First 47 games of his career: 8.5 sacks
    Last 12 (last 8 reg, 4 playoff): 12 sacks
