Overpaid, or about right

I just started a Falcons Franchise, and I noticed that my FS was sort of...lacking (my ROLB is also, but not much I can do right now). So I bravely ventured into the world of free agents, and found Oshiomogho Atogwe. FS, 92 rating, A potential, 29 years old...

...and very expensive, or at least I think so. A 2 year contract cost me 16 million, with 6 million guaranteed, to have the free agent become a free safety for the Falcons. For his rating, he seems about right, but compared to my other two FS, he's getting a lot more then they are.

Overpaid free agent, or about right?

How much you pay really only matters if you have cap problems. If he's good and fills a need, I don't really care what the price is.

I never understood why people ask these types of questions.

90+ FAs that aren't even 30 yet SHOULD require you to pay a king's ransom for them, just wait for the kind of contracts guys like Aso or Sidney Rice will get if there's free agency this summer. FAs that are at the top of their position are bound to get huge contracts.

Re: Overpaid, or about right

I think that most of the contracts the Free Agents look for in franchise are a bit high, but this isn't the most outrageous one I've seen. I try to focus on how big the signing bonus is because that's what I'm on the hook for if things don't work out. In the end, you have to decide how much you value that position. 2 years isn't going to tie you up that bad.

In the virtual scheme I run, the FS isn't that huge a spot for me. Most of my big money on defense is tied up at the corner and MLB spot. I don't ask my FS to play too much in man coverage, and if he does, it's usually against a TE, so he doesn't get exposed with my playcalling. I try to keep him in some sort of zone, so when I had my Falcons Franchise, Thomas Decoud was more than adequate for me. He doesn't have "A" potential like William Moore, but he develops into a pretty nice player, and allowed me to draft and develop another FS.

Re: Overpaid, or about right

There a lot of threads on FA signings in 11...use the search. And actually, IMO, that contract sounds about right
