Kansas City's second best CB just got paid more than that this off-season. Even without the interceptions, Cary will get paid more than that amount if he plays the way he did last year.

1.) The vast majority of Ravens defenders are over-valued on the open market
2.) The way he played last year was good enough for him to be the top CB on about a half dozen teams around the league.
3.) He is still in his twenties.

This was a 'Can't hurt to try' offer by the Ravens and Cary was right to turn it down.

Right now, he is just knocking off rust. This is where that effect comes in that a teams' fanbase downplays his play, because he won't take a team friendly deal.
