The Arizona Cardinals have been pretty quiet on the free agent front, having made only two signings. One was re-signing Levi Brown after he had been released. The other was offensive lineman Adam Snyder, previously of the San Francisco 49ers.
Snyder was signed to a five-year deal and it is not for too much money from what it appears.
Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic tweeted some of the numbers on the contract.
Adam Snyder's 5-year contract is worth $17.5 million, including $5 million signing bonus. 1st year salary is 900k— Kent Somers (@kentsomers) March 16, 2012
It would so appear that he has a $1.9 million salary cap number for this season and an average salary per year of $3.5 million.
To compare, Daryn Colledge was signed for five years, but for $27.5 million. Snyder becomes a very reasonable priced veteran starter and, if on the bench, a little pricey as a reserve.
What do you say, readers? Is this ok money to spend on Snyder?
