Not really how you measure value.

He gets 12 sacks we have the 30th ranked defense, he gets 11 we have the 4th. I like him, but think our defense is more than the sum of it's parts. Honestly, for the vast majority of his career Doom has been considered a player best suited as a situational pass rusher. That isn't worth 12 million. He was like the 6th highest paid player in the league last year. As in more than Julius Peppers, Clay Mathews, Damarcus Ware, Jared Allen, Cameron Wake, Geno Atkins, Terrell Suggs, Jason Pierre-paul, Tamba Hali....

all guys who have out performed Doom over the last 2 seasons, many over their careers. He isn't more valuable than those guys on the stat sheet....only on his receipt of purchase.

Again, really like Dumervil, so much so I spell his name right. I still don't think he's worth that contract.
