I love this guy...Marice Jones Drew. He's like Bettis with the Rams was unappreciated. He is tough and physical and just needs a new home.
Why not sign wallace for 11-13 million a year and trade him to Jags for this guy. MJD only makes about 4 milion a year. We then offer MJD a new contract for what we offered Wallace which was 10 million a year. Throw in a few extra because of his RB title. Thoughts, Can this happen?

Any word on his prognosis after having foot surgery that limited him to only 5 or 6 games this year? Can't have a bum wheel in his position.

If you sign a guy, and then trade him, the entire amount of his signing bonus becomes accelerated onto this year's cap.

As much as I'd like to see Wallace go to a crap team like the Jaguars, Ruthless hits the nail on the head as to why it won't ever happen. Besides MJD may be damaged goods.

Aside from the fact that we can't do a sign-and-trade with him, I'm not sure how much tread is left on his tires. Two years ago I'd jump at the chance, but not so sure as he returns from injuries.

MJD also held out this year despite being under contract. If we're going to hang Wallace for that offense, the same should apply to MJD.

MJD was worse. He was under contract. Wallace was not under contract.

Wallace was not under contract at the time...he was a RFA...that's why the Steelers were able to finally get him for $2.7 million for this season. However, he is now a UFA. Will be interesting to see what he can get on the open market.

OK, semantics to some degree. How many UFA blow off every single team activity, including all preseason, and come back a week before the season starts? Not many. It's not the norm. Wallace made a big hissy fit about it all, and it definitely followed him, and the team, into the season. He was disgruntled. And he had an attitude problem all season. Or do you think it's OK for your #1 WR to say 9and feel) "Oh well, I am just kind of playing disinterested out there."

Wallace was a FA.

He was a "restricted" FA, which is a huge difference.

Well since MJD might not happen, I like Ahmed Bradshaw...he will have alot to prove, thrown away by the Giants and he is only 27.
Injury risk but isn't everyone these days?
