True. But, he will break the bank. They franchised him due to all the cap that would be used up. They didn't realize they were better than what they thought. I believe they also were anticipating at bringing in a WR and DE in 09'. But Kearse played above expectations, the entire D-Line and the running game offset the lack thereof of really good receivers this season. Interesting decision to make this offseason. If VY is the future, they will need to get significantly better in other areas of the team. Collins accuracy and experience made the WR corp better.
