    After Wallace, there isn't a FA I'd pay more for than Lewis, and I don't think he'll cost more than Sean Smith. Assuming both are willing to come, it's a no-brainer.

    I'd take that package deal. Add those three who are tight friends, brothers, let's say.... add them with the Bennett brothers, and our needs are met!

    Not to mention great cohesion in the locker room...

    Wallace grew up in NO, played for Ole Miss and is said to favor warm weather. Factor in that nearly 8% of his income will go toward state MN taxes if he signed with the Vikings vs no state tax in FL, that Philbin is a SB-winning offensive coach vs Frazier coming from a defensive orientation....so IMO, consequently, it won't necessarily boil down to raw numbers.

    unless they all have the same agent and have worked out a strategy ahead of time, this rarely happens, even with just two friends, let alone 3. But I wouldn't be against such a prospect from happening.

    What about all the faulty perceptions that R Clark & Keith Butler could share about S Florida?

    Oh, thats right. RC & KB prefer some rust belt metropolis smack dab in the heart of Appalachia.

    I don't understand some of your fascinations with Mendenhall, half my family are rabid Steeler fans and I have seen countless games with them, and he is nothing special. Not to mention the fact that most Steeler fans dislike him and found his comments regarding 9/11 and being a Muslim enthusiast very distasteful. You guys want me to post his tweet about Osama Bin Laden's death here? I don't want a m'fer like that on my team, especially as a man with military background. Sh*t for brains also compared the NFL to slavery...saying that the two run parallel to each other, and I am not paraphrasing. Mendenhall is a complete jackass, and definitely doesn't have much between the ears.

    I look at it mostly as pure value. People are saying he's a 'second-tier FA' this year, paying him veteran backup/committee money; but the talent he's flashed in the past exceeds that kind of role. He was one of the top 10-15 backs in 2009-10 when he was averaging 4-4.5ypc; then he had some spotty injuries and locker room trouble. If you can pay veteran backup money (again, analysts think this will be his market) for that kind of seen NFL talent, you do it. And it's not like they know what Miller's going to give them or whether he can hold up - the guy had 50 carries last season. But generally with Mendenhall, I think there's an opportunity - due to his recent troubles - to get good talent at a great price.

    If I am GM, I don't even consider him. The passing game will be much improved after I would sign Wallace and add some depth in the draft, that Lamar Miller is a low risk/ high reward player for me. I'm rolling with Miller into the season, rookie backs came up huge last season.
