There are many ways to screw up a free agency signing. You can overpay for a guy, sign a guy you don’t need, or sabotage your cap space with a pricey player. All of these things happened this year.
Among the biggest losers: the Giants, Colts, Raiders, and Lions.
Contract: five years, $31 million
Why it’s bad: He’s still young. But $13 million guaranteed to a third wide receiver with modest numbers is a lot, especially for a team with as many holes as the Lions.http://wallstcheatsheet.com/sp...=zergnet_156881

He's speaking to Tate's talent and likely sees him as a slot guy. Even if we didn't have Calvin, the statement could still be the same. Tate playing as a #1 by default or attrition doesn't make him a #1.

Once you have that kind of consistency, it opens up the entire O. We need a WR who can gain over 1,000 yards, just 63 per game. Sounds easy doesn't it? When's the last time we had a WR not named Megatron do that? We have guys who are overpaid, we have guys who are underpaid, so does every team out there. You have to balance that and field a team who can go the furthest. We are very close to being an elite team. What people don't get is that with the new CBA we ALL have to pay basically the same amount of money. What we will see going forward is who spent theirs wisely. The Lions and Rams are 2 teams that are still feeling the effect of the old CBA, but the ceiling for team cap's is going to go up significantly the next 2 years and that anchor will be gone. Let's face it, we had to fix EVERYTHING just a couple of years ago, and we have whittled that down to the secondary. If that DL can get to the QB with a new press coverage, that will erase some serious deficiencies right now. If not, we need to score early and often. We have enough money left to sign a CB from final cuts. Cross your fingers that we can either find one or that this new staff can coach up the young guys we already have.
