    That's a ton of money for a guy who maybe has a year left...

    Rams don't have a lot of Cap Room, hope this works out for them.

    Yeah, if it was the Patriots letting Whit walk and not paying him at his age everyone would be saying how smart they are.

    He's been the Bengals best player. It's not really close.

    Absolutely. Better a year early than a year late. The Patriots live by this motto.

    Just can't pay him that much long term. Sad, but probably had to do it.

    I didn't think he'd chase the money. I thought he'd go to a place for a chance at a ring.

    Huge difference in a team that has 5 SB's compared to the Bengals. Patriots have proven again and again they can replace guys, Bengals have proved again and again they can't

    Hopefully this move just signed Marvin's Walking papers after this season. The Bengals are bad and just getting worse. They can live by the policy of "signing their own" but when you sign your mediocre own and let your best players walk except for 1 or 2 here and there you end up a team that hasn't won a playoff game in 16 years and counting.

    Could've swore I read a quote from him saying just that. Certainly he doesn't think he's going to find that with the Rams next year.
