NFL Market Share Production

manti-teo

Metric Recommendation: Manti Te’o had decent college production, but lacks the overall athleticism to be a truly dynamic NFL linebacker. His lack of speed and explosiveness make him a liability in situations where he needs to recover. But he did prove from college and some of his NFL production that he has some instincts to make an impact. Thus, I recommend a salary of 2,339,805 to 2,769,000 a year. He can be an average starter and should be compensated as such.

But the proper hedges should be in place due to lack of athleticism and a lack of significant contribution seasons.
