Default Titans left tackle new $43 million man

Titans left tackle new $43 million man

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP)—Michael Roos handles his business quietly. Even after signing a new six-year, $43 million deal, the left tackle didn’t start bragging to his fellow Tennessee linemen.

They had to read about his big deal in the newspaper.
Not that they mind.

“You have to be happy for him,” veteran center Kevin Mawae said. “He deserves it, and there’s no doubt he’ll out play that contract.”

It’s only appropriate for a man believed to be the first Estonian to play in the NFL, someone who had played football for only five seasons before Tennessee drafted him in the second round in 2005 with the 41st pick overall, a giant at 6-foot-7 and 315 pounds who has managed to start every game since then.

Economically when you look at the contracts of David Diehl, Justib Tuck, Michael Strahan, Osi Umenyiora, Plaxico Burress.....we have smart financial decisions across the board and that is apparantly a tough thing to do in today's NFL.

^ How does that correlate in any way to what's being posted? Justin Tuck and Umenyiora aren't gonna be playing for peanuts all their careers. Eventually they're gonna want a raise (Umenyiora already does).

Diehl's my favorite OL of ours but he's no Roos at LT. Roos is a top LT rightnow and while Diehl played admirable as a first year LT he still gave up like 14 sacks, which is not very good. If Diehl still played LG his deal would be a steal but at LT he's much less of a steal, especially with young guys like Roos taking reasonable deals like this.

Because players all over the league at all positions are getting paid more money than they are worth. The Giants however just recently signed Diehl and Tuck to long extensions that will pay them much less than they're worth.

Osi wants a raise? Says who? He has made no mention of holding out for more money.

C'mon, you're sticking your head in the ground if you believe that Tuck and Umenyiora are gonna be playing for cheap deals.

And this is old news buddy http://www.nydailynews.com/sports/fo...f_holdout.html

Once Justin Tuck hits double digit sacks a year or two more, he's gonna wanna get paid like the best also. So don't get your hopes up on having cheap pro-bowlers for long.

Tuck was just signed to a long term deal and I don't see him wanting a new deal for another 3 years, then he'll want a deal on par with what we give Kiwi, I think he'll break out soon and we'll keep him.

IMO a top 5 LT in the league hes a fantastic character guy and he does his job with no fuss, totally underrated, deserves every penny

I thought we already discussed this, before the Draft even.

It's not outrageous money for Roos though, he is very much a Top 5 LT consideration as the above posts states.

stole him. 43 million is nothing for a franchise LT. We have guards getting 50 million.

great deal for the Titans. I felt they had a top 3 oline in the league last year.

Granted, Roos is much more likely to see all of that $43 million than those guards will of that $50 million. I bet Roos' contract is structured so he'll see most of that money early in his contract.

thats also true, but id still consider that a cheap deal. the way money gets thrown around in FA, he wouldve gotten more than that on the open market.

its kind of surprising when you think about it, why some players don't enter FA and decide to extend contracts with their team without testing the market. they lose a significant amount of money by doing that. i guess comfort and the chance of living in one place for the rest of their career supercedes money at that point.
