FOX Sports writer Peter Schrager tosses us Colts fans a bone regarding Indy's possible pursuit of Ravens outside linebacker Paul Kruger:
Hearing that the BROWNS, SAINTS, and COLTS all very interested in Paul Kruger's services. We could see an old fashion bidding war tomorrow.— P. Schrager (@PSchrags) March 12, 2013
This is now the second report suggesting the Colts and the Browns are "warring" over Kruger.
It's been speculated that Kruger will get a 5-year deal worth $60 million.
As I told you all before, this. does. not. make. me. feel. good.
I have nothing against Kruger. He's a good player. Not great, but good. I just feel very uneasy about the franchise signing him to a $60-$65 million dollar deal. I realize that free agency is all about the guaranteed money, not the length of the contract, but is Kruger truly worth that much? Is he an elite pass rusher?
My instincts say no, and his career stats also suggest no.
