Took a LOT less money than what he is worth, imo. Glad I get to root for him in Tampa though.

I wouldn't have minded having him back at that price honestly.

I disagree he took exactly what he was worth he is going to get an AAV of around $6.7M which is perfect for him....

When Shields gets almost 10 mil per I would've expected Verner to be in the 8-9 mil range, not 6.5.

I guess I should rephrase that. I think it is a lot less than what he could've gotten else where. Should be a great fit down here in Tampa and in Lovie's D though.

Shields just got massively overpaid

That makes sense with Lovie running the Cover 2 defense..
Scheme fits him perfectly

Great value, as he was very sought after this offseason.


And look at the other CB's

Vontae Davis 4 years 39 mil?? And Sam Shields got the same deal.


Wondering if Verner's deal is fully guaranteed because he took 12.5 less

+1

I expected 4 years 26 million would be the deal he turned down from the Titans before hitting the open market. I kinda feel like we should have kept him for that price.

A little disappointed

Oh I agree, no way I would pay that for him but with players almost always making an absurd amount of money in FA I would've expected Verner to get more. Happy for him though.

14 mil guaranteed according to Schefter.

Happy for Verner. Didn't get a mega contract(actually cheap compared to the other CBs) and he's perfect for the Bucs and Lovie's cover 2 defense. Wish we could've kept him but happy that he's out the AFC. Best of luck to him.

I wouldn't mind it for a guy like Gilbert but I doubt it. I think we think very highly of Sensabaugh and Wreh-Wilson.

No Wyatt has mentioned that our staff believes in BWW and Sensabaugh one of those two will be the starter....I could see us landing a corner in the 5th
