Don't have the link just yet but heard it on 790 the zone.

Another great TD pick and contract extension. Rolling Eyes

Maybe I don't have all the context...but are you blaming your GM for signing/picking a guy who got hurt and is going on IR?

Injury problems before he was drafted, and had them almost every year since being drafted. I might be wrong, but he's had maybe 2 healthy years out of 6.

I disagreed with giving him the size contract he got... but it was market for a starting LT.

Good riddance, he's been a liability all season. Ridiculous that we gave him so much money just to be injured or incompetent.

Apparently if we cut Sam Baker we will take some pretty large cap hits. Terrible decision by TD to extend him.

yup. if it was just the 10M potentially guaranteed that would have been better.

Welcome to the Falcons forum!

Hopefully this gives him to get 100% healthy and rebound to 2012 form. If we don't draft a LT, he should compete with Lamar Holmes for the job in 2014.

If I'm not mistaken, his contract is ranked exactly 16th in terms of size for LTs (according to Sportrac). In 2012, he was about the 16th best LT, so it makes sense.

yeah. exactly. that's what I was saying. He got a starting LT contract for him being a starting LT.
