Plenty of videos breaking down his horrible play the last 2 years. Ignore the name recognition and he is nothing special.
I fully agree that there's a lot of tape of horrible angles and bad decisions, but again, he's an opportunist. He also lead our defense in tackles and interceptions and ended the season as the 17th best safety according to PFF, even after that disastrous run in Washington.
Not playing to his full potential to save his body for free agency... That I do hold against him.
Also, fact is Washington traded a 4th for him, then benched him before the season was over, and then chose not to offer him even 3 million dollars to return, after they had just traded a 4th to get him!
All I've heared is that Washington was in talks with him, as well. How do you know they didn't offer him $ 3 million? Maybe they offered him $ 15 million over 3 years, but he liked his odds of getting a way bigger deal than that after a good season with the Bears. Maybe he didn't like the direction the organization was going. Maybe the contract was too insentive-laden.
Does that not tell you something about his play? Come on man...
I don't think he's an amazing player and I certainly don't see him reaching all-pro status during his career, but the hate he's getting here is just ridiculous.
