I've seen comments about how Cato Junewas caught at a good price in other threads, but I haven't actually seen any numbers, so I was just wondering. Does anybody know????? thanks!

What ESPN is saying is 3 years and over 12 million. The over part scares me. Hopefully it's just over so that it would be close to $4 million a year.

Whoa...shiver me ****in timbers!

That is a fairly modest deal. He could have got much more in this market, I would expect.

You're probably right, OptionMasta. Sounds like a pretty good deal to me, if ESPN is correct that is.

and thanks for the info kodiak

Being a 3 year deal, he probably didn't get a huge bonus. That would mean if he is a bust (I highly doubt he will be worse than Nece) then we just cut him after a year or two. If he plays well, then we might have Brooks' replacement already. If he's not good enough then at least we upgraded out strong side LB.

$4 million a year is less than the market value for a starting safety in this FA.   It doesn't really matter how June pans out with a deal like that........no risk and all reward....I love Bruce Allen.

The comment was that we would likely have to revisit the deal before year 3, meaning it is probably a tryout deal with a small year one and a large roster bonus next year.  Similar to the deals for Gold and Griese, I imagine.
