Bob Sanders Gets a Well Deserved Payday December 29, 2007

Posted by Marquis Chapman in Football, NFL, Sports.

Bob SandersOn Friday, Indianapolis Colt’s safety Bob Sanders signed a five-year, $37.5 million contract extension, making him the highest paid safety in the NFL. The safety is expected to receive $20 million in guaranteed money. Sanders is the machine that drives the Colt’s defense and is the main reason why the Colts are ranked #1 in the NFL against the pass. 

Standing only 5’8”, Sanders more than makes up for his height with his hard hits and explosiveness against the run, and has shown improvement against the pass.  Players are starting to fear him, and his style of play rubs off on his teammates.  Although he may not regarded as the best safety in the NFL hands down, it’s only a matter of time.

I hope the Jags can shut him down in the playoffs if we get the chance to play them. Man I hate the Colts. I got to say though that Sanders is one heck of a player.

Yeah, the Jags are pretty good. Taylor is having an amazing year. It’s going to be very interesting if they meet in the playoffs.

Sanders is a beast. When he came back from injury late last year, that emotional lift and his actual presence made all the difference for the Colts. He deserves every penny. I do agree with the Jags being a very interesting opponent for anyone in the playoffs. I figure them to be the team most likely to represent the AFC if not the Pats or Colts…I believe the three of them are “at another level” than the other AFC post-season contestants.

Agreed Sportsattitude.. Sanders is a beast! He and Marlon Jackson make for one hard hitting secondary!

In the mold of a Ed Reed with his fearlessness and big play capabilities. Very smart move by the Colts for Comping that guy. He is the cornerstone of their defense. Question??? Am I the only one who never heard of this guy in college. I know he went to Iowa which is a reputable Big10 team, but I never heard of him before he blew up with the Colts.

6. Sportsattitude - December 31, 2007

Answer – No, K.C. You’re not the only one who never heard of him in college. He was off my radar until he got to Indianapolis. I can’t agree more what a smart move it was to lock him up.
