Bush is a 1,000 yard back with ability to run routes and stretch defenses. He had 8 touchdowns this year and we barely scratched the surface of what he's capable of in the passing game. I think he's definitely worth giving 3 years $15M.
Not with Lamar Miller behind him. 28 Yr old. 2 Yr deal at best.
Fasano made $3.6M in 2012. He's hands down our best tightend. He had 5 touchdowns this year, more than our entire receiver corps. I think he's worth between $3-$4M easily.
Would rather take that 4 million with a little more & signed a pass catching TE. I like Fasano, but he is what he is. A good backup TE.
With regards to Hartline, how much do you think a $1,000 yard receiver gets paid?
1 Td. Signing Hartline to 6 million to not be the No. 1 Wr is asinine. Being the best of a bad lot, doesn't mean you are good. Hartline put up 1000 yds because Miami had no one else to throw to down the field. He wins out on being the only option.
Why do you want to resign all the receiver from a poor corp? Need to upgrade.
Again, with regard to Pouncey. He's probably the best center in the AFC. Don't wait for him to become a $8M a season center.
What makes you think he isn't already?
Also, since Long is now gone, who now becomes the leader of that offensive line??? Pouncey, that's who. The guy is extremely important to this offense. I'd love to see us give him a three years extension and pay him around $4-5M a year for the next five or six years.
You are assuming he is interested in signing.
I won't argue with you on offering Bush a 2 year deal. That would be a better deal for the team. But remember, if he walks we now have a hole at RB. I like Miller, but a 1,000 yard back he is not. Neither is Thomas.
Fasano had more touchdowns than our entire receiver corps this year. He was a safety blanket for Tannehill. Not only that, but he greatly helped out in the protetion department. Pass catchers are nice, but well-rounded guys are better in my opinion.
With Hartline, I agree that $6M is a lot, he's still a 1,000 yard receiver and Tannehill's top target. The man is due for a pay day. I think he'll get at least $4-5M.
I agree we need to upgrade. I'd love to see us re-sign Hartline. Sign Jennings. Then draft a pair of wideouts in the first three rounds.
So if Pouncey is an $8M center now, what would he be in two years if he continues to improve?
If he's got a shot to double his salary and be in a secure contract for the next five years, I think he'll seriously consider the offer.
