    Lightning Bolts hit'm with the Lowest Tender??? :eek:

    OK...What's the punch line??? [​IMG]

    And before anyone says "His knees.", yes, I know all about the 5 Operations on'is Left Knee.

    But the former UFA ~ who the Bolts picked up for nothing last October ~ had an absolutely monstrous second half, coming out'f the clear blue sky, and played like he wasn't feeling any lingering affects at all.

    Mind you...

    ~ If he is as healthy as he says he is, then it's hard to imagine his Price staying low.

    ~ If he is as healthy as he says he is, then it's hard to imagine the Bolts declining to match.

    But it's sure's Hell worth a go, eh?? :D

    1 ~ 6.5/216 Pound BEAST.

    2 ~ Tremendous Work Ethic.

    3 ~ Strong, willing Blocker.

    4 ~ Brilliant: Walked in off the street and in 2 weeks was DOMINANT.

    5 ~ Terrorized Defenses when he finally got healthy: 37/658/7 in half a Season!! :eek:

    If this guy's truly healthy, and if the bewildering lack of interest on the part of the Bolts ~ combined with his extensive surgical history, which may well be what's causing that lack of interest, as opposed to anything current but currently unknown to the public ~ scares off or at least dampens the enthusiasm of other teams, then we could just possibly be in a position to land a flat out SuperStar just before his career takes off...and do so for pennies on the Dollar!! :rocker:

    Just a notion.

    I have no expectation of Coach Bill making any such Move.

    But if the Price is right, and he checks out healthwise, I would pounce on this kid.

    So how much guaranteed money are you handing a guy that has never played more than 10 games in a season?

    After multiple reports that he was getting the first round tender, he only got the "right of first refusal" tender.

    How high would you guys offer him? He has stud potential but limited to show for it. 5 mil a season?

    re: RFA WR Danario Alexander!!

    Might be a good, cheap alternative for a deep/intermediate threat. It would be a nice insurance policy for a high WR draft pick I'd roll the dice with 5 million. He can't be worse than OchoStinko right?

    re: RFA WR Danario Alexander!!

    Only five operations on his left knee? I hear with the sixth, he gets a set of steak knives.

    In all serious, I wouldn't mind taking a flyer on him if he came cheap, but his injury history makes him a huge risk on any type of decent deal.

    re: RFA WR Danario Alexander!!

    The key is to give him a contract the Chargers don't want to match but gives us protection. I'm sure there are some smart people working for the Pats. If they are interested in a 6'5 WR who can snatch the ball, then maybe they'll make an offer. Who knows. :)

    I'd try semi-high base salary, with escalators and low guaranteed money.

    28 games played out of a possible 48, and a knee that's had more work done on it than Joan Rivers entire body.

    The same people calling for him to be signed now will be screaming about how stupid the signing was if/when he goes down with yet another injury.

    re: RFA WR Danario Alexander!!

    Depends on what contract you sign him to. Unfortunately a sensible, games played incentive contract would likely be matched by SD who may simply be giving the kid a reality calibration at the slight risk that one of 31 other GMs will just give away the store.

    Besides, Glass IR Dowling needs a companion in rehab.

    I would rather get a for sure free agent...even though BB would have to pay extra.

    Danario Alexander!!

    Wonder why JM didn't push to get him here last year? Lloyd, Hoom and Salas but this guy sat on the UFA list. That's a question mark for me, that and why didn't they tender him higher in SD.

    There is no such thing as a sure fire free agent.

    Danario Alexander!!

    Rams trainers said that his knee would never be 100%, with some degeneration already apparent and that everything he was doing was to just keep the knee the way it was.

    If the Pats think he can hold up for a few seasons why not?

    re: RFA WR Danario Alexander!!

    I think Alexander is one of the best kind of FA's you can get. Similar to Greg Toler and Desmond Bryant, they haven't peaked yet. So that means they come at a cheaper price, and have the potential to well-outperform their contract.

    If it is February 3, 2014 after waking up in a Jersey hotel with a smile on our face…any Pats fan should "tap" that opportunity.

    I was just thinking of the other term for a wide receiver who is outperforming his contract….oh, yes…I believe the term is "hold out."

    re: RFA WR Danario Alexander!!

    Let me see if I've got this right....


    People are screaming about signing Welker because he might get hurt, or decline, and not live up to his deal. However, it's perfectly fine to get into a contract writing contest with the Chargers over a player who's knee has been cut into more often than a 3 pound steak?

    That's why they invented condoms. :D

    And from a contract perspective I'm sure you could 'condomize' a contract somewhat to protect against injury, whilst perhaps offering longer term than the Chargers would want to match.
