Absolutely they will. IF he performs again.See the question mark at the end? It was an honest question. You don't think Brown will want the same? You don't think a team will go out on a limb and offer that up if he performs again?
Thing is- what if Brown tanks this season? What if he drops every second pass his way & he proves to be nothing more than a piggy-backer to Wallace? (Not saying he is- just playing the conjecture game).
If you let Wallace go now (even if you get this shiny 1st round pick), and he continues to rack up 1400 yard 14 TD seasons, on the priviso that we'll 'never afford both Wallace & Brown', and Brown doesn't end up being 'all that'- what are you left with?
Bird in the hand BigRob, bird in the hand.
Wallace is a proven NFL WR, with 3 years of solid to very good results to his name. Brown has half a season's success.
