Carolina cut him because he was an indifferent tackler. His market was so robust he took essentially the veterans minimum just to find a job in SD. He had a good season and was among my favored safety targets but because I felt he was a viable coverage safety and a nice replacement for what Parker was supposed to be.

And even after SD let him go, he had to take deal that gives him about 1/4 of a relatively replaceable guy like Jaquiski Tartt was able to get. Special teamers like Nate Ebner were getting better contracts; washed up veterans like Michael Thomas were getting better deals. Former undrafted FAs who aren't even starters and are on the way out of the league like Rontez Miles were getting better offers.

The market clearly didn't value the guy and there's a reason for that. He's a nice player but you're talking about making him one of the highest paid safeties in the league. No way - that's way high.

Target him, sure. See if 2/$10 gets it done. 4/31, even knowing the final year is almost certainly fluff, ends up being 3/$23 under your structure and that's just not a level I'm willing to go to. If for no other reason than the safety market will probably do the same thing next year. There's always a guy who's market doesn't come together; a Damarious Randall type. Find one of those who you can get on a 2 year deal; don't pay a guy who will have then been let go by 3 different teams to a long-term deal at a fairly significant figure.
