Sign him for 5 year 21 mil contract. 6 billion bonus upfront and minimum salary the first year. That will minimize our cap hit next year. He will make 3.5 M per year from second to fifth. Guarantee the first 3 years of it.
Jordy Nelson also knows how to separate from receivers to score touchdowns every once in awhile
I wouldn't grab Allen at 12. If we indeed pass on Patterson (which I hope we don't and go ahead and select him at 12) and select a DE...I'd think Ireland would go with someone else in the 2nd. Which in that scenario would be a smaller/speedy playmaker type like Austin. This would also have me think we'd be pursuing Dwayne Bowe in FA to be that bigger compliment. But I believe we will go after Patterson at 12 and Jennings in FA. Imo.

The reason Hartline doesn't get a ton of targets in the redzone is
1. He is summarily horrid at getting open in the redzone [which puts a premium on real WR skill, often facing man coverage -- a huge FAIL for Hartline]
2. He is not able talent-wise to catch the ball when not fully open -- again, poor at going over defender to take away ball, when not able to create space... again, which he is horrible at.
He is been here way to long and honestly I DON'T want him gone. Fin for life please!!
