Get something before he goes on his own, that's my take on it.
I've though similarly along those lines as well. Guess we'll know/see when it all shakes out.

I'm skeptical he's starter quality. Helluva' RB, no doubt.
Not so sure I agree with this statement. I don't think it would take long to find a job if he were to become a FA. What range draft pick we'd drag from him is a different story. I know some here have talked about him bringing a first rounder but I never really thought so. I'm thinking 4th'ish.

Never know what will happen in the heated passion that's draft day on the clock though.

Guess we can all hide-n-watch.
