    $10 million a Year for Kruger



    Jason Cole who is one of the better NFL media guys out there thinks Kruger will get the $9 to $10 million a year he's looking for. It won't be the Ravens signing him either. Not anything we weren't expecting but it's interesting to hear it from a reliable source.

    On the other hand, it's become evident that Kruger will be wearing another uniform as one of the top pass rushers on the open market.

    According to Jason Cole of Yahoo! Sports, Kruger's contract will likely "blow past" $9 million per season and could clear $10 million annually.

    Possible landing spots for Kruger include the division-rival Browns, seeking an edge rusher for Ray Horton's 3-4 defense, as well as the Colts. Former Ravens defensive coordinator Chuck Pagano could view Kruger as Dwight Freeney's successor opposite Robert Mathis. Either way, Kruger is going to land too much money to return to Baltimore.

    The Bills are very interested in Kruger according to some reports.

    That's an unwarranted amount of money. Kruger was in the NFL for four years and really only during one 10 games stretch did he ever show an ability to be anywhere near that type of player. IMO he's a 4 year/$25m type player, not a 5 year/$50 million type player.

    And you wonder why the Bills suck every year....

    I think we all knew this was coming. Best of luck to Kruger. He's got this ring so now let him go and do this thing

    At least the Bills have a guy on the other side of him. If Kruger ends up on the Browns he'd completely disappear. It would be fun to watch the Browns blow through all that cap money and still suck.

    Kruger gave us a really good year, but has priced him self out of Bmore sadly. Had we seen this production earlier from him, we may have even had him under contract by now, or he may have been seen as a more serious franchise tag candidate, and Upshaw probably wouldn't have been drafted.

    That's free agency for you... Good quote from the 49'ers chief operating officer:

    "We have the most expensive defense in the league on an average per year basis and that is not sustainable over time," Marathe said. "Becuase of the cap, if every veteran on the team took a 15 percent discount on their market value, you couldn't field that team still under the cap because the difference between wholesale (draft) and retail (free agency) is so wide.

    "You have to figure out which players to keep and which players to let move on and churn out. Because you have to continue to replenish the system."

    Two words:

    Courtney Upshaw


    Kruger did a lot for us, but without Suggs on the other side he is average, there is now way in hell I pay him that.

    He's won a title, now he can chase some cheese. Fair play to him, he's got his chance has to take it. Be disappointed if he went to the Browns though.

    They are being a bit too simple-minded. They think that to win the division, they have to get to Brady. Now, that's largely true--at least get Brady moving--but they are completely neglecting every other unit on their team. Crazy.
    Back to the AFCCG we go. So get ready!

    I would disagree with this. Jabaal Sheard is pretty good.

    I think the Bills are a QB away from winning that division. They arguably have as much individual talent as the Patriots perhaps more. They need a QB, and a WR to compliment Stevie Johnson, and a guy like Kruger opposite Mario Williams would complete a scary scary defensive line. They have a really good underrated Oline too btw.
