was listening to the NFL channel and they had Kam on for an interview, talking about his contract.
I don't remember the exact phrasing, but he was asked about how important resigning was in regards to being able to stick with the guys he plays with.
His response was something along that being a big factor, how those guys (the secondary) are like brothers. He said they've already talked about it and want to play together as long as possible, "even if it means giving up a little something".
Hopefully they can all check their egos at the door and stick to that. But if he's serious and they've already talked about this and are already talking about doing what they can to make it work and keep that group together, that's a good sign.
It's naive to sit here and think any players are going to seriously undervalue themselves out of loyalty/friendship. But it's reasonable to think that if you get guys together like we've got, they will at least do what they can to try to work things out here before opting to move on. It seems like if they've already talked about it, their first reaction isn't going to be to bolt to free agency. There is a first time for everything and if these guys are that close, and also feel like they have the best chance to play their best as a group, and think they can win championships here I wouldn't be surprised to see them make their deals work.
