Brooks Orpik responded to reactions that he was overpaid by Washington in free agency.
"Whether you make the minimum or $9 million a year, there’s always going to be people that think you’re overpaid," Orpik said in a phone interview Tuesday. "You're always aware of that. Washington, I think they know me well enough, so they know what they're getting." Coach Barry Trotz is excited about the intangibles that Orpik will bring to the team's back end. He was signed to a five-year, $27.5 million contract on the first day of free agency. Aug 21 - 1:57 PM
