Bowe got a touch more than antonio brown from the chiefs and we get to watch wallace walk.....awesome
Brown got 6 years / 43 million with around 12 guaranteed
averaging 7 million per year
Bowe got a 5 year deal... and the early numbers I'm seeing at 10-11 per year (the Vincent Jackson contract)
Big difference... (if the rumored numbers are correct)
either way, 5 years around 50 million is a steal for the chiefs. 6 years for 43 million is a steal for antonio brown
either way were losing a guy that points points on the board, probably losing his best friend and our starting CB, and we get a #2 WR with an upper tier #2 WR salary. makes no sense
I've been mentally prepared for this all year...
I'd edit your post to :
too bad we couldn't cut Harrison and Troy and recoup ALL of their cap space to use towards Wallace and LewisQuote:
either way were losing a guy that points points on the board, probably losing his best friend and our starting CB, and in return we were able to keep a bunch of guys chewing up cap space on defense because we wanted to keep a contender together and now we are paying the price
I have a bad feeling about our WR core. I was thinking we'd went out and picked one up not watch them all walk/ resign...
This might work in Wallace's favor. Steelers might look around and say, " Let's pay Wallace..one less hole to worry about."
So the Chiefs trade for a QB and try to build around him.
We have a HOF-er who gets treated worse than Kordell Stewart was when he started.
Dwayne Bowe got 56 million over 5 yrs.... or an average of 11.2 per year, making him the 3rd highest paid WR in the NFL
I'm kind of glad we can't afford to pay Mike Wallace
