Peter King weighs in on RB contracts, arrests and Brees contract
— Dan asked King who he would want to give a big contract to — MJD, Ray Rice or Matt Forte. King said Rice because he’s going to be such a big part of the Ravens’ offense this year. And King said Rice was smart to sign a deal because he’s had a lot of wear and tear.
— King doesn’t think teams should take running backs very high, noting that Arian Foster was undrafted and you can get guys.
— Dan asked which of the several recent arrests is most troubling. King said that the Marshawn Lynch arrest is a problem for the Seahawks because this isn’t his first time getting in trouble and the NFL could give him a harsh penalty.
— King thinks Drew Brees’ contract makes a lot of sense. Brees should be paid that much: “I think it would have been ridiculous and irresponsible for him not to want to get more money than Tom Brady and Peyton Manning. For the last six years he’s gotten [$10 million a year]. He’s vastly outperformed that contract.
