Re: Elam wants how many millions?!?!?
For $2 million a year, you should have had kicked two field goals through a playoff snow storm and the game winner at the Super Bowl within the past year. Well, Vinateri did that and he isn't asking/making that money. For $2 million a year, his kickoffs should go past the 10 yard line (so the freakin' return man isn't always running it back to at least the 35), he should make 40 yarders in pressure situations (I know he normally does, but he didn't last night...in a year that he is asking for the cash), and his 50+ attempts should come a little closer to the target than a dead duck in the air that lands well left and short in the endzone so it can be returned for a TD.
That's just my opinion if it was my $2 million to spend. I really like Elam, but I just think he's gotten a bit long in the tooth...and very short on the kickoffs to justify that salary....especially in a year coming up when Denver will be well above the salary cap.
$2 million on a kicker...I think not.
