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

The fact that Blache is teaching him to play OLB says a great deal about his versatility. He will be able to line up as an end and drop into coverage when we run the zone blitz with Landry coming in to deck the opposing QB as well as moving around to the LB position during shifts which will most likely be called my L. Fletcher. Very exciting player to watch develop!

Jonathan Stewart also signed a 5 year deal worth 20 mil with 10.8 guaranteed. He was last year's 13th pick

thats a good deal right there. unless there is a bonafide stud in the top 5 at a position of desperate need for us i do not want to be picking and paying for a top 5 draft pick. i.e. lions who have been screwed by joey harrington, mike williams, and that wr rodgers (who i really liked and just don understand what happened to him).

we get orakpo at 5 yrs 20 mil who could just as easily be as good as tyson jackson who is going to get (im guessin) around 35 - 40 mil for 5 yrs.

go skins!!

If he makes a smooth transition to SAM LB, our defense is going to be stellar!!! There's no doubt that he will pressure the QB when given the opportunity to rush. A happy day indeed!

what does SAM linebacker stand for?
is terrell suggs considered a SAM?
is it another term for strong side linebacker?

agreed, the 11-20 range is good value w/fairly high probability the player comes through. I know it might evoke some negative reaction, but even our very own 50-50, Rod Gardener, was a decent value pick at 16 I think. He wasn't a star but a good 2 reciever for a few years. He got paid decently but didn't jeopardize the cap like top 10 picks do.

If you pick in the top 10 & the player can't even start for you, you get stuck in the cycle of hoping the next top 5 or 10 pick you have pans out. in the meantime, those guys eat up cap space & $.

Traditional linebacker position names:
Sam = strong side linebacker
Mike = middle linebacker
Will = weak side linebacker

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.
LOL that was on last night. I can watch that movie every day.

I'm pleased with that contract. He's a rich young man but we didn't give him more than market value, and we got our guy in the fold. Moving on.

Glad the deal is complete. Looks liked both parties made out just fine.

Now get this freak to work!

Suggs plays in a 3-4 and we run a 4-3 so it's different. Suggs is more like a defensive end, he's a rush OLB, and he probably rushes the QB half the time, while 4-3 LBs blitz a lot less.

Really, its not like the contract says he will only play one or the other. Apparently he will play both.

I was under the impression that it mattered as far as pay goes. terrell Suggs was on NFL network last year complaining about he wanted to be paid as a DE not LB.
