    Re: Jason La Confora: Kruger looking for 9m/year...



    It's typical agent speak, this way worse case scenario is you get tagged.

    Still don't understand where this notion is coming from that Kruger is just a situational player, he played 63 snaps against the Colts for example, that's not situational play.

    The FO doesn't let special players walk away. If they believe Kruger is blossoming into that special player they will get a deal done.

    Time to put Kruger on a milk carton, because I have not seen him all day.

    Isn't this his first year starting? Its apparent he is a higher impact player than Johnson was. He is going to get paid no matter how much some people want to downplay his contributions.

    This. Kruger's playing start snaps and that is just fine by me. Sure, he's not that great against the run, but he's good enough. The guy is just too good rushing the passer. He's also pretty good dropping into coverage surprisingly.

    At this point IMO he's played his way ahead of Ellerbe as the #2 offseason priority (after Flacco of course.)

    I like Kruger but at 9million a year no thanks.
    Personally I would invest that 9 million and little extra on a LT

    Could not disagree with you more. Ellerbe does not get the sexy numbers (sacks) but the dude does a lot more heavy lifting IMO than Kruger. Would love to have em both back but if I had to pick one I will go with Ellerbe and draft or sign another rush end/LB

    What he asks for and what he gets is a different story... Its not impossible to get 9/per but id expect more of a.market at 8.

    I agree that Ellerbe has played really well. I think Kruger is just edging him out with his ability to consistently rush the passer off the edge. Ellerbe is a good run-stopping ILB and blitzer, but not great in coverage. Manning threw over the middle today straight at our linebackers and had a good bit of success, so I really think the main weakness of our defense is still present--coverage over the short and intermediate middle of the field.

    It's definitely close as to which player is more important. Kruger will be more costly but has a bigger impact and plays a less replaceable position. I'd love them to keep both guys, honestly.

    The issue I have with Kruger is that he did nothing this year prior to Suggs returning. He had 1.5 sacks through the first seven games of the season, was really a total nonfactor, Suggs comes back, and all of a sudden he blows up? Too much of a coincidence for me. I do appreciate what he has done this playoff run but you have to look at the whole body of work. I think whatever team ends up paying him that kind of money is going to be regretting it this time next year, and the Ravens FO is way too smart to make that mistake.

    But imagine another year of development for Kruger playing opposite a healthy Suggs (who already seems to be coming back strong). We could have one of the best pass rush in the league.). Remember Rice asking for 100 million? Yeah like that ever happened. I think Kruger signs for 5/6 million a year, or may possibly get tagged if Flacco is signed before FA.

    Kruger is here for what 4, 5 years? In that time he plays half a season of inspired football at doing one good thing and now all of a sudden he wants 9mil? See ya, Paul! You still can't stop the run or set the edge.

    I'd rather take that 9 mil and dangle it infront of Brandon Albert. This offense can be VERY good with a solid left tackle (As McKinnie is showing).

    Pass rushers always get paid. Some team is going to pay Kruger very big money and it won't be us since we just don't have the cap space. It will be interesting to see how he performs. As we all know Kruger started playing great once Suggs came back. If Kruger is the man, teams are going to double team him every time and take him away. He doesn't have the skills to be a teams only pass rusher even though he's going to get that kind of money.

    If he can be had for 5/6 mil, then I'm fine with that. I think that is what a good complimentary rusher should get. The problem is, like GOTA said, I think some team is going to see "ooh, shiny pass rusher" and way overpay him. There are a lot of dumb franchises out there.
