    Just look at the OLs in the bottom 10 or so of that years 1st round. Pretty much all of them were busts. Carimi and Sherrod especially became complete fails.

    Interesting to me that Fairley's fifth year wasn't exercised. I thought that he was doing well for them? Are they not satisfied or are they just in cap hell as usual?

    This just shows how Emery and Stein work out contracts. NOT strapped to any 5th year options at all. Lots of 1 year deals and if they work out then there is a 4 year extension without all the B.S.
