Re: Marcus Davenport

Wasn't impressed in a contract year.

He's averaged 12 games played per season.

Do you think he's worth $20MM per year? That's what his market is.

Neaux... that's the whole point. Will he take less, or is another team willing to pay him that? IMHO, if another team steps up, we let him walk and we get the compensatory pick later.

Re: Marcus Davenport

Try out the market and see what we can get for him. But I wouldn't let him go on that last year. He's going to have to have a prove it season to get top dollar on the Saints, or anywhere else.

Re: Marcus Davenport

If he leaves we're paying him two more seasons I think

You're not wrong.

That is an illustration of how the cap has been managed. If we pay him, his number increases. So, is it worth it?

Re: Marcus Davenport

The fact they let players walk with more productivity than Davenport makes me say they shouldn't keep him, but they likely will anyway.

Loomis is such a cap genius though. He'll figure it out. Everybody is doing contracts like that now!

Re: Marcus Davenport

I know some people have defended Loomis and his 'kick the can' method of cap management, but that's the problem with stealing from Peter to pay Paul...

Sooner or later, you end up with a sore Peter!

Re: Marcus Davenport

I would offer him $4.5-6mil/yr. Thats what his production and availability is worth. If he gets a lot more I hope and pray its a division rival who is the sucker. Andrus Peat 2.0 on defense.
