Yeah, he held out all year for money reasons. I'm sure he'll take the league minimum now.
Anyone who quits on his team mates is a guy you don't want in your locker room.
Which still validates my point...he's not "earned" what you're paying him. You're gambling in an investment.
Disagree 100%, he has earned the money. That is how it works.
It is also an investment for the Dolphins that is a gamble.
The issue with incentive based contracts generally is that they are easy for the team to control.
Oh we are out of the hunt and you're 75 rushing yards away? Well we have a young HB to look at today, so you won't be seeing many carries this week.
I just don't see a need at running back on this team. Even if you set everything aside about him he is still a luxury we cannot afford.
Id rather them spend the money on the best FA guard/NT. While drake/ballage are not Bell, we have good enough young RBs if we just had a good line and playcalling/scheme/QB adjustments etc etc. We might never run the ball as good as the steelers did but the money he would cost that takes away from otherbootions vs the gap in tallent...ehh not worth it to me.
Here is a little tidbit for you guys. I think whoever signs Bell is going to be in for a rude awakening. I will go as far as to say, he will be a historically bad signee. He has multiple drug violations, he wants a ton of money, and will be right around 30 as his contract will come to an end. It is OBVIOUS that he will want another contract, and you could expect drama at the end of the contract.
The guy wants absurd money. Like significantly more money than Gurley is getting. No running back is worth what he wants. Moreover, running backs are really easy to scout. More often than not, they really don't bust. You can find good ones late.
Finally, running backs more most susceptible to injury. Their careers can be ruined in an instance at a far great clip than any other position. Could you imagine a Willis McGahee type injury in the first year of the contract? It could set your franchise back 5 years.
Has anyone explored the idea of Bell paying us to play in Miami?
