Maybe im late and i apologize if i am. but not only is he ranked one of the top 100 players in the league (56), but a huge reason why Arian did what he did last season.

The only thing i can speculate was that he wanted too much money......

But we resigned OD, Cody, and Ward before the lockout began......why not him?

I'm guessing he wants big money (for a FB), like 4 mill a year for 5 years. He also may want to get some other offers to maximize his value.

Maybe they just did not get that far wanting to see if they'll re-sign him for less with a new CBA.

He will be a Texan next year if some other team doesn't give him crazy money, and I don't think that will happen. Fullbacks are nearing extinction in today's game thus not knocking down the big bucks. I think Rick Smith's going to get him done, just not for the money Vonta is wanting. JMHO

Plus

He's getting old

Worst... post... ever

He turns 30 in November. 30 is not old for a fullback.

He was just named to the All Pro Team. I am not talking about ProBowl which he was also, but is mostly a popularity contest. All Pro. That goes to say he's pretty damn good.

I can't even read your last sentence. Your illiteracy hurts my eyes.

I would like to see a UDFA or two brought in as camp fodder though, just to reduce wear and tear on Leach. FB is a physical position.

Well, we've got another guy with the same problem.

He's getting old.
He's overrated.
His position really isn't valued much.
Plus, he 's a psycho. :)
We really need to not pay arian very much.
Maybe we should just let him go.

30 is old for fullback IMO.

Not when fullbacks play into their mid to late thirties.

Vonta is the best at his position. He brings a physical attitude to this team that is beneficial. He's a "glue" guy, everybody loves him.
