Jason Smith: “It’s kind of weird that you’re trying to sell your fans and the team that this is our time to go win and we’re going to say goodbye to a player that still has 2 really good years left in the tank... to get rid of him just to get rid of him makes you scratch your head... but for a lot of teams out there this guy will be incredibly valuable... obviously $14 million is too much so you pay him less than that but I would give him a guaranteed contract and have my running back position set.”
Mike Harmon: “There’s a lot to like except for the price tag and this is where we get into the lamentation of the devaluing of the running back.. I feel for them I do but the game has evolved.”
