Much rather have Houston and Cook rather than Ellerbe. The guy really hasnt done anything to justify a huge contract. We still really need a Left Tackle, 2 or 3 CBs, and a pass rusher. Please tell me we arent going into draft filling these holes. Im not trying to be negative lets get that straight. Im just confused why we are spending so much so fast. We needed to bring in 5 or 6 players on decent contracts not 3 guys on monster deals that cripple us in the next several years. This has Jeff Ireland trying to save his job all over it. Hartline-1mill to much, Wallace 2 mill to much, randy starks 2 mill to much and Ellerbe is pron like 2 mill to much. that is 7 million a year we overpaid and coulda paid Jared Cook. So we basically lost a free agent upgrade overpaying. And now we have to have a TE with Fasano in KC

    If there is one thing we all know is that this FO is pretty good with money and have gotten better every year. That's why we had $40mil and tons of draft picks. Try not to freak about the money - freak about the players if you must.

    Because being cheap and letting players walk out was working so great, right?

    These are big contracts but the cap hits are reasonable.

    You are questionable! There's always some clown who wants to pi55 in the cornflakes. These are the most significant additions since Ricky and we ain't done yet. Go pi55 somwhere else please.

    you rarely get good value for someone. for good players, especially in todays day and age, you are prob going to have to overpay for the players you want.

    wallace gives us something we have lacked, and that is a wr who can make big plays downfield. we needed him anyway we could. who cares at the end of the day if we overpaid buy 1 or 2 mill, if he ends up catching 10 plus tds yearly with 1200 plus yds and leads us to playoff appearances and superbowls, it will be well worth it.

    sit back and enjoy, we actually have a team now, and also this will allow a very solid wr in hartline to actually do what he does best and not be something he is not, which is a number 1
