Brandon Carr was a nice get for $5m I believe given how quality CBs come at such a premium in GML

Good signing, yes. But your signing of Torrey Smith for $950K was ridiculous given what he signed with the Eagles for (like 5x). I was extremely close to bidding $1,050,000 on him but already had 6 WRs. In hindsight I should have and then June-1sted DHB. I made no June 1st cuts

But a big part of DHB's value to the Steelers is that he's a special teams ace. That's value-added over Smith, but Smith is definitely a better WR

Thanks man I was very happy to add him for that cheap-- one of the league leaders in drawing dpi with the Ravens, I think luck could really find ways to make defenses pay with Torrey

You're welcome and I agree. I shoulda bid damnit. And Leodis McKelvin is excellent at 540k as well. I think both of these players were majorly undervalued in this league mostly because their original GM cut them early on, especially in the case of Smith

Yeah I think there's kind of a stigma around guys that get cut early, and that sort of congeals into a conventional wisdom

I had Leodis early on; figure he's a very good CB 4 in a deep system, and for the price you can't go wrong. But you do worry about him falling off a cliff at 32, and in my case I fell into Brice, making him superfluous. But I think he's a good, but not great pickup for a team in need.

I agree having that concern, but he's still 31 and was CB2 for the Eagles last season (started 12 of the 13 games he played in), so I don't know if CB4 is accurate. You def can't go wrong for 540k if you have a roster spot available

Korey toomer for 650k is a crime.
Josh Bynes went for 540k I believe, steal.
I quit bidding on John Simon at 4 mil ish, he went around there Irl too, he reminds me of clay Matthews.
I may have a linebacker obsession. Fuckin bears.
