Yeah. The price isn't an issue for them.That guy is going to run over barron for years though.
If used correctly, Barron is a very good player. He should be played exclusively on TE and RB on 3rd down passing situations. He has done well against Graham and other TEs/RB in coverage. He has not and will not do well as a deep safety against #1 WR or speedy slot guys. We've seen Barron flash because he has unique skills. We haven't seen domination because he is not a true safety and is being played as one. The guy is a hybrid S/LB and won't reach his potential until he has a coach that can figure out how to match him up in our benefit on a regular basis. He is a box player and has skill to cover TE and the size/strength to tackle them. Those two combinations are not common.
