I don't think the contract for the Badger was off base. It's all hindsight now based on how he played last year. I'll take the positive approach and say he's back to 100% this year and then the contract will not look as bad. I don't disagree that the money was a little high for Bethel. He had not locked down the other corner spot, and five mill a year is a lot for a #3-4 corner who is good at special teams.
I think SK assumed he could look Campbell thus they took #90. If Robert had a better rookie season, no one would be sweating Calais leaving like we are now. Also how could SK predict Tony would have a breakout season? The guy went from a 2 mill a year player to a 7 mill a year player based on 2016
