Ranks him 20th in the league. Still doesn't rank anywhere near that among league receivers.

But then again, the larger issue is Tavon Austin at #4. Jeesh.

That isnt a logical approach. Every year the cap goes up. Making those types of rankings completely dispensable.

Besides, I am looking at that list and I dont see many people ranked lower than him that have a strong argument that he is being overpaid much, if at all.

Chris, there's no need to justify your overreaction. It's a fine deal. He ranks 24th in the NFL among WRs in average salary per year, just ahead of Mohamed Sanu.

A significant chunk of the top WRs are still on rookie contracts, so he actually ranks much lower with that in mind.

Just because the Falcons gave Sanu an asinine deal doesn't mean it makes it right. Some say overreaction. Others would say justified reaction. Regardless, the numbers speak for themselves. Have no problem paying for potential, but Woods doesn't seem like a player that can develop into anything more than he is now. Hope I'm wrong.

Sanu got paid market value. That's the problem. People see the new deals every year and complain that it's an asinine deal. Stills and Britt are both getting paid around $8 million per year. DeSean Jackson got paid over $11 million per year. Even if Woods doesn't improve, he's an average #2 WR. That's the going rate for an average #2 WR.

The fact is, though, that he's a soon to be 25 year old WR coming from a run-first offense with a QB who doesn't fit his skill-set to an offense and a QB that both fit his skill-set. Odds are that his production is going to increase if he stays healthy. And if his production does increase, we're getting a good deal on a guy who hasn't even hit his prime yet.
