    Re: Williams on haris

    I don't remember hearing this before. I believe Chad Johnson said something similar last year though.

    It must be this year because Williams mentioned that the Lions will be playing the Falcons this week, which they are. That's some very high praise from a good receiver. He's right about Harris being strong. He's thin, but did you see the way he threw Anquan Boldin around when he tackled him last week? And Boldin's a big, strong guy.

    If Harris had held onto the two easy picks he could've had this year, he would be in the running for a Pro Bowl spot.

    This is what I was refering to

    From June of this year

    "I think he's the best DB in the league," Detroit's Williams said last year. "And I say that because he presses you all game. All the other ones, like (Detroit's) Dre' Bly and all the other big-time guys, they want to play off and read the quarterback. But he just presses on you and man's up. I always look at him as the biggest challenge of the year."

    Yet second highest CB on the team? Articles like this have to drive GM's like TT nutts. We are going to have to pay him or lose him.

    one thing made me think...( this is just me and a thought, nothing else)

    what if Roy and Al are great friends?? and not to many people know this and he is pushing to get Al a huge contract, and maybe Roy is going to get a kick back form it?

    The problem is Harris knows he was worth more than he was paid the last few years and now wants more money. It's a dilema for TT because of Harris' age. Al knows it's now or never to cash in on his level of ability.

    At some point Harris will lose a step. Do you pay him more now to compensate what he has done in the past? That's a tough one. Would GB had paid him more if that's what it took when he wanted the deal reworked? Who knows.

    The way it worked out it certainly would have been worth it and this thing wouldn't have gotten to this point. But that's the deal his agent worked out for him so it was obviously a fair deal at the time.

    My gut says he can probably sustain this level for about one more year. By '08 he more than likely won't be the player he was. I doubt, however, that the Pack will be able to pay him the $10mil a year Woodson is getting. Hopefully something will work out. Right now he's a darn good player.

    I would try to give him a roster bonus and some incentive bonuses. That way he gets some money up front for what he has done and some in the future if he continues to perform. It won't hurt us in the future if he loses that step and I thought I read that that was what he was asking for.

    Good teams like the Colts are constantly playing around with Peyton manning and marvin harrison's contract to help the salary cap. They push forward bonuses and other incentives deals. This way they always have enough money to sign their draft picks and a FEW key free agents.
