    $60 mill i hope its for 60 years .i dont think he is a top 5 or even top 10 WR.he just so happens to be a FA the year there is no clear cut #1 in the draft and a week FA class of WR.i know he is younger than the other top 2 FA such as Bowe and Jennings but is he head over heels better than them???

    Well with the reports that KC is going to franchise Bowe it narrows it down to Wallace or Jennings.

    He turned down an offer that big? I dont think that can be true. why would he not sign that deal unless there is just bad blood?

    I dont know. Not many teams can afford him. Not sure Cincy needs him. Cleveland, ok, ya know, cleveland rocks! lol

    thats a lot of dough. I still think we make him a sizable offer but he walks and Jenning is right down the street with Philbin.

    Absolutely. Jennings will be seeking something comparable and he's older and has been injury plagued.

    Funny, I've been watching NFLN and ESPN since the season ended and there's not a single "expert" that doesn't believe he's the best option available and at his age, with the success he has had. Sign the man.

    This past year wasn't his best but neither was it for Bowe and Jennings. But Wallace is a game changer and a serious TD waiting to happen. He's the explosive player they need. I think he'll command 6 years and near $70 million. Not sure if Miami will pay it but they know what the market is likely to be.

    I know it doesn't seem like a lot, but the difference between 7-8 per and 11-12 per is significant. That's half of your money to sign draft picks, or 2/3 of what Soliai (one of our best players) is making. If I had no questions about Wallace as a person and competitor, I'd be inclined to eat the difference, but Wallace comes with a host of red flags. I'd prefer to sign Jennings for less and draft two WR's early. Jennings is - by all accounts - a good, team-first guy. Someone you can trust to help in the development of your young WR's. Wallace is not seen as a team-first guy or a guy that does the little things very well.
