I'm never been big on handing out huge contracts, in general, unless it's just an absolute star. Even then I don't want so much money committed to a couple guys that there's nothing left to fill the roster out with any quality players. That being said, though, we can't sit here and say they shouldn't have given the money to a guy who was going to be injured, when no one could have seen that coming.

It speaks more to the overall risk of paying out big contracts in a sport like football. But since we know teams will continue to do this, you just have to hope nothing bad happens.

Tommy Myers was a free safety, who played for the New Orleans Saints for ten years, from 1972-1981.

The Saints chose Myers with the 74th pick of the 3rd round in the 1972 NFL Draft, and he quickly became a fixture for the defense, going on to play in 136 games, while starting 120.

In his ten seasons, Myers compiled 36 interceptions,returning two for touchdowns, while recovering 15 fumbles, of which he returned two for scores.

Last good safety we had.
