When Best Is The Worst

I tested my theory that rookies are overvalued today by offering Donald Brown ($4) and Kenny Brit ($2) for Jahvid Best ($10) to the Hebrew Hammer, a young team admittedly in a rebuild.  The Hammer scoffed at my offer.  In fact, Hammer texted me that he was “throwing the deal back in my face.”   Was he right to do so?
You could say that Brown and Brit had relatively disappointing years in their rookie season, but let’s not forget both are very young, cheap and likely to become impact players down the line.  Addai’s time in Indy is running out and Brown is going to inherit an incredible opportunity to become a prized possession.  Brit has the tools to be a starter too, but like most young receivers he will probably need a couple more years to become a household name.  I don’t want to hear this “Tennesse is a running team gibberish” because many receivers flourish on running teams just like many running backs flourish on receiving teams.
As for Best, sure, he looks like the real deal and he is getting an opportunity in a young, growing offense.  Let’s face it.  There is a good chance he will become a RB2 as soon as this year.  On the other hand, Best has never played a single game in the NFL, not to mention he has a history of battling the injury bug.  Furthermore, with a young Kevin Smith nipping and his heels, Best is far from being a sure thing.
Two first-rounders from 2009, totaling $6, vs. one first-rounder, totaling $10.  Hammer, I look forward to seeing how these players develop in the coming seasons and revel at seeing you regret letting another great deal pass you by.
