Crazy, you can watch for updates all day. Go to get ready for bed and he signs. With my luck I will be getting a beer when Cooley catches the winning pass in the Superbowl!

Great news

Samsonite! I was way off!

$33 million for the 13th pick in the draft would have been an incredible job by the agent. That's more like top 10 money.

That's a very reasonalbe deal if he becomes a starter, which he'd better!
Of course if he has a couple double digit sack years early in the deal, say by year 3, his agent will start talking to the danny.

Anyone know what #13 got last year, that's always a good starting off point.

As the 13th pick last year, Jonathan Stewart (RB, Panthers) signed a 5 year $14million contract.

Derrick Harvey was the 8th pick last year, and second DE taken. He signed a 5 year, $23.8million contract. $17million guaranteed.

Re: Orakpo signs (5 yr, $20M, $12.1M guaranteed)

Not a bad deal. The best part about it is, Orakpo wasn't out long enough to get on the nerves of Greg Blache. The deal actually is a pretty good one. Orakpo seems almost destined for OLB. Likely in an Arrington type role, up on the line on third down passing situations. Will be interesting to watch tape from training camp and see how he progresses at LB throughout the weeks.
