    i don't really know what your point is

    So you don't think there is a difference between Rivers in his prime, and a rookie QB?

    Alexander was undrated because he had knee issues... the same knee issues that got him cut in St Louis... and the same knee issues that prevented him from playing a full season in San Diego

    it's clear that your knowledge comes from fantasy football

I think i see your point: It sucks making a 3rd round pick into a top flight player and getting NOTHING when he walks 4 years later. But franchising him wouldve cost ~$10mil for one year. He may have sat out ala V-Jack. then been gone next year! I doubt the Fins wouldve ponied up a pick for him THEN sign him to a monster deal.
    we'll actually get a 3rd round compensatory pick next year... so at least we get something

    The Steelers handled the Wallace situation well (at least it turned out well). He is not worth what the fins gave him. I would rather let a guy walk than overpay him. If he walked for $7 million per, I would be angry. He walked for $13 million per. They can have him.
