Player I have "repeatedly categorized as injury-prone":
Now if you think you can actually make a credible argument that any of those players don't justifiably deserve the injury-prone tag by all means go for it:
As far as the "overpaid" tag goes, while it's true that you can basically slot most veteran starters into different, comparable salary ranges based on position, the overwhelming majority of players that get that label is because thier performance, production and/or contribution doesn't justify thier compensation, not because of the position they play unless it's completely out of whack in comparison to their counterparts (like paying a G top LT money). T
The "injury prone" and "overpaid" labels are also not mutually exclusive because if a player is getting top $, but spends far more time in the trainer's room than on the field then their "contributions" are not justifying their compensation:
Players I have "repeatedly categorized as overpaid:
Rolle - Solid starter but has always been much more effective as an in-the-box S than he is in coverage but was made the highest paid S in the league when he was signed and his 2013 CAP hit is 9.25M, again more than any S in the league.
Baas - You need look no further than the jersey coaching staff, beat writers, gradings, etc to find repeatedly expressed concerns about his level of performance since signing, and with a 6.275M Cap hit is the 5th highest paid C in the NFL.
Snee - Had been the best OL on the roster for a number of years but 8.8M is within the salary range of the top LTs in the league.
Webster - Has never been considered a Top corner, graded out at 110 out of 113 starting CB, 9.75M Cap, need I say more?
So if you don't feel any of those players are overpaid based on their performance you're entitled to your opinion but we'll just have to agree to disagree.
Bottom line: Jersey fans can play the "the ends justify the means" card all they want, but no team, (some who have been far more consistently successful in the past), were able to roll the "rob Peter to pay Paul" CAP dice for too long before eventually having to suffer the consequences. Now whether or not that is what jersey is now facing is TBD so we'll see what we will see.
What they are trying to do, and Reese is the guy I trust for the job, is rebuild the team on the fly. Not so dis-similar to what the Eagles did from 2008 through 2011 (minus the whole Dream Team BS)..there won't be major FA signings..It's not an easy job(see the last 48 hours as evidence), but it has to be done..Reese wants to have a team that is championship calibre every year until Eli retires (next 5-7 years or so), not every 2 years or so...the full scale rebuild comes the day 10 announces his retirement...but, if you follow the team, this is how they operate..you want to know exactly when they knew they were cutting Bradshaw? Last Draft Night when they took Wilson..they always think future, not immediately..They drafted Linval Joseph because they knew Coefield was leaving..Kiwi was drafted because Strahan was about to retire..JPP because they knew Osi was leaving (although he stayed one year longer)..this is how they operate..
