    By hitting escalators in their rookie contracts, receiver Damian Williams and cornerback Alterrraun Verner both earned significant raises for 2013.

    Williams and Verner are now scheduled to make $1,323 million this fall after initially being scheduled to make $575,000 as part of their rookie contracts.

    Williams, a third round pick in 2010, has played in 44 games over the past three NFL seasons, with 91 catches for 1,135 yards and five touchdowns.

    Verner, a fourth round pick in ’10, has played in 48 games, with 31 starts. He has 171 career tackles with six interceptions.

    They deserve it. Both worth more than their base.

    I see people giving verner grief on this site, but I have to say, I am happy with his progress.

    I find myself cheering and yelling out Go Vern! in every game. I am glad he's reached a milestone and is being paid more.

    No one here gives Verner grief.

    We may comment on his lack of top speed, but he does everything else really well.

    I like Verner a lot.

    Yeah, have not seen a lot of grief given to Verner. Out of the 4 starting DBs he gets the least, that is for sure.

    Yup

    People like to tease Griffin cause he's a b!tch
    People like to get on Babs cause he's old and slow
    and people like to bust McCourty's balls for being better than Verner (IDK how that works, it's just how it is for some reason)

    The contracts Griffin and McCourty have only made things worse
