      bonus_zpsa19f6893.gifESPN.com    July 11  2014by Nathan Jahnke / Illustrations by Dave Merrell    Anyone remember the travesty that was the Saints' safeties last season? The Seahawks certainly do: They outscored New Orleans 57-22 in two games. That's why ball hawk Jairus Byrd got $28 million guaranteed to relocate to the Big Easy. Here's a statistical skinny on Byrd and four other big-ticket, must-have free agents who will reinvent their units.1    Branden Albert    LT, Dolphins - 5 years, $47 Million Between Jonathan Martin and Bryant McKinnie, Miami's left tackles were a mess in 2013. Martin allowed, on average, one sack, one hit and two hurries per game. And McKinnie gave up four or more pressures in seven of his 10 starts for the Fins. Enter Albert, a 29-year-old former Chief who was the No. 15 pick in 2008. He's been one of the best pass-blocking left tackles since 2011 (see chart).bonus1_zpsce844827.gifKevin C. Cox/Getty Images2      Jairus Byrd        S, Saints - 6 years, $54 Million Even last year's additions of CB Keenan Lewis and S Kenny Vaccaro, coupled with CB Corey White's emergence, couldn't cover for Malcolm Jenkins, who allowed 486 passing yards, the second most among NFL safeties. Byrd, 27, allowed just 0.23 yards per coverage snap in Buffalo last season, third best in the league. Plus, as the chart at bottom shows, the three-time Pro Bowler has a penchant for INTs.bonus2_zps5aa4144e.gifKevin C. Cox/Getty Images3    Eric Decker      WR, Jets - 5 years, $36.2 Million Think the Jets needed a new No. 1 receiver? Consider this: Of the 94 WRs who garnered at least 25 percent of their team's targets last season, Stephen Hill ranked 83rd in yards per route run (1.02). Meanwhile, Decker has averaged 86 catches and 1,176 yards in Denver since 2012. His numbers will certainly decline without Peyton Manning, but count on Decker, 27, to create his share of big plays in the Meadowlands (see chart).bonus3_zps347631ee.gifKevin C. Cox/Getty Images4    Michael Johnson          DE, Bucs - 5 years, $43.7 Million Tampa Bay hasn't had a player rack up double-digit sacks since Simeon Rice had 14 in 2005. Last season the Bucs' top ends -- Adrian Clayborn, Daniel Te'o-Nesheim and Da'Quan Bowers -- combined for just 10 sacks. With the Bengals, the 6-foot-7, 270-pound Johnson, 27, ranked among the league's top pass-rushing 4-3 DEs (see chart). Plus, in 2013, his 8.4 percent stop rate on run plays ranked fifth best among 4-3 ends. No wonder Cincinnati tagged him as a franchise player last season.bonus4_zps4021975e.gifKevin C. Cox/Getty Images5    Karlos Dansby      LB, Browns - 4 years, $24 Million Cleveland wouldn't have needed a new inside linebacker if D'Qwell Jackson were still playing like it was 2011. But last season, Jackson's 5.9 percent stop rate on run plays was fourth worst among all ILBs. Although he's 32, Dansby is still one of the most complete 'backers in the game: He led all LBs in passes defended in each of the past two seasons (see chart) and ranked seventh in the league with a 10.8 percent stop rate on run plays.bonus5_zps8c6ddd74.giflink

      I’m sorry I just don’t see Decker or Albert transforming their teams. Albert is overrated and Decker is a good #2 who was lucky enough to be catching passing from an all time great. I do think the Jets will be better but it will be just as much because of an improved running game along with a shiny new rookie TE and Decker.

      I'm not sure when it happened but somehow we have cultivated an environment in the NFL fan bases where no QB is given more than one year to prove themselves.  It's alarming.  I'm not the biggest Geno fan but I agree, how can you not give him the benefit of the doubt after last season?  Do you know how many hall of fame QBs would not be there if teams were to give up on QBs as fast as fans want them to today?

      Coaches have been lulled into the Peyton trap.  Which, simply put, is, we can put it all on his shoulders and he'll not only figure it out but we will outscore our opponent 2/1.  In the end, it's a defensive game and without one, you will rarely win it all. The Jet's defense is no joke and will never be with Ryan as their coach.

      Did Denver even make a competing offer? With what they're paying Peyton and soon going to be paying Demaryius Thomas and Von Miller, I'm not sure they could afford much more than the minimum for Decker.

      not sure. I would assume there was some interest for decker throughout the league, my stance is that it’s better to take a little less to put yourself in a better situation…but it’s not for everyone.

      I think its a pretty good bet Decker chased the greenbacks. Not that there is anything wrong with that. Its different for every player. A guy might make big money early on, then he wants a trophy. Or a guy who never gets the huge contract, and he says, screw it, I will take my chances with Geno or Mike Vick.EditUpon further review, Decker had a 4 year deal in Denver worth 2.5mil.The Jets gave him 5 years 36mil.  Who can blame the guy?

      Well, the point I was trying to make was, were the Broncos going to pay him anywhere in that neighborhood?  No way, they have Thomas, and deemed Decker expendable.

      I think we would all be surprised how few offers most free agents get. If you think about the last few years the Bucs have been spending money, it seems we’ve gotten pretty much everyone we’ve actually tried to sign. I don’t think Vincent Jackson, Carl Nicks, Dashon Goldson, Michael Johnson, and Alterraun Verner seriously entertained other offers. I think the Bucs’ offers were far and away the best deals they had. If you think about it, most teams have limited cap room and limited needs. It’s not too often there’s much overlap. Also, you have to understand all players have egos and think they're going to win wherever they go.

      Maybe so, but Peyton isn't going to still be around when Decker's contract is up. His time is very limited. And maybe Geno and Vick stink it up and the Jets draft Mariota or Winston or someone else and they have a Cam Newton/Andrew Luck instant impact. Things change quickly in the NFL.

      Depends on the player. Say your Kapernick, and your a free agent. You know you can get 15mil plus from any interested team. So you pick the best team.On the other hand, a guy like Decker, who may not have got a lot of offers. He is going to jump on the Jets over inflated offer. Not giving a rats ass who the QB turns out to be.

      sure, but you are still banking your prime years on geno smith. Either there’s a lot of trust in geno or decker wants 6 cars instead of two.  Or possibly the jets were his dream team. Who knows, it doesn’t matter. Heck, maybe geno impresses and they play in the Super Bowl and it was the right choice.

      Ten lb ass needs to cut back on the meth. It’s making him say silly things, like, “..glennon will start the season” and, “..geno is a future HOFer.”Personally, I wouldn't write geno completely off, but by watching his games I'd have to say he's average. Anything is possible, but idk if he's in the right situation, or has the time allowed to formulate a HOF career there. Even IF he was elite.

      I’m sure Denver wanted him back and extended some kind of offer because they offered Sanders a decent contract if I’m not crazy (no clue what they gave him) to come in and replace him… but he wasn’t their top priority, they knew they needed to upgrade their D and they have higher priority guys coming up that need to be extended. He took a big deal to go to a big market team and play for an unknown at QB. I’m sure he’ll have a decent season but he’s going to have his work cut out for him, he can’t be expecting pinpoint passes thrown perfectly on time. As Sanders would say, he left “wr heaven”.

      Denver gave Emmanuel Sanders $15 million over three years, so they could have made a similar offer to Decker.  But Decker went after the cash.

      Which is what almost everyone on here would do if given the opportunity.  Generational wealth is at your disposal if you play your cards right in the NFL.  Smart move on Decker's part.

      Also, you have to understand all players have egos and think they're going to win wherever they go.

      this is certainly true, but he'd have to be very naive to think there's not going to be a change from Peyton to geno.

      I don't think he's naive... he played for Minnesota with Adam Webber.... I assume he knows how to identify and run away from a bad qb :)

      Decker made a mistake going  to the Jets. Who is the QB that's going to get him the ball?

      the guy went where he got paid.....no mistake there.

      the answer isn't always the biggest check.  I'd much rather play in superbowls with Peyton for a few less bills than more than likely miss the playoffs with an erratic QB. But to each his own.

      Maybe they didn't want Decker. He was a nobody before playing with Manning. Maybe they think Sanders is better.

      A nobody? His first year in Denver (6 receptions, 106 yards 1 td), they had Jabar Gaffney (65 catches 875 and 2 tds), Eddie Royal (59 catches, 627 and 3 tds) and Brandon Llyod (77 catches 1,448 and 11 tds) I'd hardly say there was an opening for any rookie wr to unseat those guys. Demaryius Thomas was also selected in 2010, and he had 22 receptions for 200 some yards and 2 tds I believe.  And 2011, wasn't that the Tim Tebow  year? Decker still managed 44 catches 612 yds and 8 tds with possibly the worst qb to ever be a first round pick.  --I mean Demaryius Thomas only got 32 catches for 551 with 4 tds. So I guess D Thomas was a nobody as well before Manning?

      sure, but what exactly is the cutoff line for generational wealth?  And how many guys really play their cards right in professional sports? Id venture a small percentage.

      There is no cutoff, that's what makes it generational.  If the fruits of your labor provide for your family to provide for their family and so on, you have generational money.  This is not to say that every generation hereafter can sit on their collective hands and live but the money Decker made on this contract opens up options to set up many generations to come.  Not many play their cards right because they get caught up in tangible crap, as do their hangers ons, it's a vicious cycle.

      You certainly could be correct.  But I would think it’s highly unlikely that they wouldn’t want Decker for the same contract they gave Sanders.  The guy had over 2300 yds and 24 TDs in the last two years with the team.

      Decker is a genius really, he gets way more money to play 1/3 of the snaps he had to in Denver, plus with no playoffs anytime soon he just scored like 6 weeks more vacation.

      Honestly, I'm not sure how they miss the playoffs.  That defense is to be respected.

      Also, let's face it he's a good looking white guy with a smoking hot wife going to the media capital of the country. Playing for the Jets for a few years will set him up for a cushy broadcast job when he's done playing.

      sure, if that’s his end game. But if its winning a Super Bowl?  Again, way too many variables to be definitive, and I probably overstated my original post. But as a WR I would attempt to find a great QB even if it meant losing a few Bucks on the front end.
