I think a full back can earn $4.3M cap figure, had we been able to get 10 games or so every year from Casey, similar to that New Orleans game a few years back (5 caches, 126 yards, 14+ average, 1 TD)
But he'd have to be on a team where getting open quick is not such a premium (how many fullbacks can get out of the backfield & open quickly) or a team that plays well off script.
