With less than seven hours to go until the opening of free agency Bernard Berrian got a real boost.
Andre Davis’ four-year contract with the Houston Texans can only aid Berrian on the open market. Davis reportedly will be paid $4 million annually with the deal reaching $16 million and containing almost $8 million guaranteed.
If Davis, who made 33 receptions last season for 583 yards and three touchdowns, is worth almost $8 million guaranteed over five years, what is Berrian worth?
Davis is a journeyman who has played for four teams in six seasons in the league and is best known as a kickoff returner.
His contract, if anything, might be a base point for Devin Hester. Not Berrian. And you can take it to the bank right now, Hester will be commanding more than $4 million annually when he gets done wheeling and dealing.
Berrian has rejected the Bears' offer of $25 million over five seasons with $8 million to sign. He is seeking $24.5 million over the first three seasons of a contract.
