Greg Schiano emphasizes control of Bucs by trading Kellen Winslow - Peter King - SI.com
You make a good point that you have to pay a player for what he will contribute, not what he has contributed. But history is the best measure of what the future holds with quarterback play (when quarterbacks still have prime years left), and I believe a younger Brees, signing 20 months after Brady should eclipse Brady's $18 million average, and not by a little bit. As far as me not being objective, well, I've been accused of being Brady's biggest cheerleader, which comes with the turf. But I'm calling this one the way I see it.

Sports Radio Interviews " Blog Archive " Wade Phillips on Greg Williams Audio: "It made me sick. It’s something completely against what I believe in."
I don’t know that they took it to heart and did it. I can’t say that somebody got up and said hey you oughta do this and that the players were doing that. I think a lot of them would say that themselves because I would imagine a lot of them went up and said hey I don’t feel right doing that. I’m sure some of the other coaches said hey you don’t need to do that and just play the game the way you play it."
