    A few other extenuating circumstances in some of those deals, such as salary cap, coach-player problems, off field issues, etc. Not always as black and white as we would like it to be.

    Ok what the hell....

    They get all of that for a guy who can't hold on to the ball and we only get a 3rd rounder for Moss??? And we even had to throw in a 7th rounder just to get that.... Someone explain how this happens....

    look like Braylon holding on to the ball this year, a TD in each of the last 3 games...

    that was a great trade for the Jets, they give two mid round picks and 2 players who were not needed for a very good wide reciver

    3 games after constantly dropping the ball for 5 seasons in cleveland and one in new york? And those are some nice career TD stats he put up: 3, 6, 16, 3, 0, 4, 3... So much better than Moss.

    Yeah he's a future hall of famer for sure. :rolleyes:

    The fact that we didn't get Boldin for that price just floors me. Then, the Ravens sign TJ Houshmanzadeh for 3 cheeseburgers and a big gulp.

    That's the difference between baseball and football; budgets and salary caps.

    It has nothing to do with what draft picks Marshall was traded for; it has everything to do with what it would take to sign Marshall to a new contract. Plenty of teams wanted Marshall; nobody except for Miami was willing to pay him what he and his agent were asking for.


    Here are Marshall's contract details:

    2010: Signed a five-year, $47.3 million contract. The deal contains $12.5 million guaranteed, including a $5.5 million signing bonus and $6 million of Marshall's 2012 salary barring a league suspension in the first three years.
    2010: $4 million
    2011: $6.5 million (+ $3 million roster bonus due 4/2)
    2012: $9 million
    2013: $9.1 million
    2014: $9.1 million

    its possbile to be a good reciver in the NFL without being better then Moss...
