this is just like when everyone slurped on the Chargers when they dealt away the draft pick to Atl and Eli for Rivers +.
a perceived win in draft value doesn't mean **** on the field.
That isn't nearly true. At 16 million a year he is a solid 4 million more than any other DB, so even if he is the very best in the league that is not a good deal.
It is a big if too, he is coming back from a big knee injury and his game is very reliant on being able to move fluently. We have seen it with Champ, half a step is the difference between elite and very good.
