It makes no sense to throw multi millions at a RB with that kind of mileage.
Local stories say you are both wrong. Edge has recently said he wants to stay here with Manning and Marvin. South Beach is a mess and will be for a long while, Texans are in better shape. The deal with Marvin is just about done and Edge is next. Peyton is making a ton, but it is actually less than last year against the cap and the cap goes up next year. Besides, without all the support, edge goes to a one dimensional team and he doesn't put up near the stats. One of the best things he does is block for manning in Blitz situations, w/o a Manning he is reduced to a runner, and Dominic Rhodes and others have proven, if you just want a runner, they can do that. If edge wants the HOF and a true legend, he'll be in Indy for next 7 years. besides with the Harrison deal all but done, they'll hang the "Franchise" tag on him next year and either get lots of #1 picks for him thereafter or he'll re-up.
