1Hawkeye1 wants Vida

It hasn't been officially stated yet, but the word out of Indianapolis is that the Colts' Bob Sanders has been made the highest paid safety in the league by signing a 5 year extension worth $37.5 million with a guarantee of $20 million. This deal pays him a million more than Pittsburgh's Troy Polamolu and a higher guarantee than Ed Reed recieved when he signed his contract extension.

``I got a call late in the evening yesterday from my agent and he said he was hoping to get it done,'' Sanders said. ``I'm excited, very excited about it - knowing they want me around here makes me happy.''

It takes a special player to be a defensive leader from the safety position. Normally, the leader of a defense is a linebacker or possibly a defensive end. That's what makes Sanders so special. He is all those positions rolled into one player.

Best of all, the former Iowa Hawkeye is a quality individual. You know when he makes headlines, it is for his play on the field. Not for any arrests off it.

Congratulations Bob. Go Hawks, Go Colts!!
