    Fitzgerald is the highest paid wide receiver in the league and that's how every receiver wants to get paid. You really think Wallace isn't signing on the dotted line until someone offers $50 million guaranteed and ~$13 million per year? I don't.

    Here's a link to the highest paid wide receivers in the league this year. Note a few of these are "franchise tag" deals.

    Vincent Jackson, you'll see, did get Larry Fitzgerald money. And he played well this year, too. Averaging more than 19 yards per reception for 1,300 yards, despite missing a game.

    Wallace is worth a deal more in the $8-10 million range, probably closer to $10 million. If you want a player of his caliber, that's what they cost. He's every bit the player Santonio Holmes is, in my view. Pittsburgh used him sort of one dimensionally but he has a ton of versatility. Jennings for his part would cost less but not as much less as people think. Probably in the $6 to $7 million range annually.

    I don't know why people think we have an inside chance to land Jennings. Just because Philbin is here doesn't mean Jennings would prefer to be here. He could very well want to play with Luck/Manning/Brady or whomever.

    I'd love to sign the guy but I don't think we have any advantage over any other team in this league, well except the Jest because they suck.
    Draft:
    1/ R.Shazier OLB
    2/ C.Borland MLB
    3/ G.Jackson OG
    4/ J.Hurst OT

    Jennings is the only one I'd take. Bowe and Wallace are problems children, they want WAY to much money and Wallace has not played well in what should have been his best season (if for no other reason to get a new, huge contract). C Gates could have been our long ball threat for a 1/20th of what Wallace is demanding.

    TE Jermichael Finley is a slacker, he is a player that someone will think they can turn around but I would not touch him.

    If we want to bring someone in, bring in a winner and a good locker room guy. With the new CBA, rookies are so much cheaper (Jake Long anyone) then player's drafted 3 years ago or more. Just because we finally have a lot of cap money does not mean we waste it. I'd rather overpay a great Free Agent corner then any WR.

    We need speed at WR but we also need speed on defense.

    this years free agent market is going to be a buyers market. the big money deals will be hard to come by for 2013 free agents. we can sign anyone we want. this is from the man in charge.....

    Wallace = overrated and not worth the money.

    Bowe = sucks and a bad seed. nothing more than a stats guy on a bad team.

    Jennings = I'd take him at a reasonable contract that takes into account his age and injury plagued season. Risk.

    I'd pass on all three and send a third to Philly for Jeremy Maclin and draft a receiver in the first two rounds.

    I would think with J.Philbin getting rid of B.Marshall that would let everyone know that D.Bowe is not coming here.

    Where my 1st choice is to bring in Jennings I could certainly see us going draft only with new offensive weapons.

    I'm happy with any of the three but, favor Bowe. IMO, he fills our biggest WR need in the red zone. He has 6 drops this year, and 24 over 3 years, which is average. If not for the injury concerns, I might give Jennings a slight edge, as he is also a VG in the red zone.

I have trouble calling Wallace overrated when he has more TDs through his first 4 years in the league than our entire WR corp combined over that span.
    It never fails does it. SMH at some people.
