We have however probably had a much higher allocation for LBs than other teams. Lots of factors play into this such as experience of each unit.

    I think that $17-20M per year is probably the top line limit we could afford for WRs untder the current cap and I would think the lower side of that is probably right. That is why I think it will be very hard to keep both Brown and Wallace and still have viable #3 and #4 receivers past next year unless those guys are very young.

    It would be interesting once the final 53 is determined how much we have tied up by positional unit. Anyone want homework?
    My opinion is that you should always allocate money to the better players at their position league wide. Simple. .

    Combine this point:

    That's pretty dominant...

    Detroits D gave up 45 to the Saints last year...
    And this point:

    Never mind that we have a fist full of rings.

    WE have more postseason wins IN DETROIT than any player on that team has.

    Megabuck to Megatron or any other receiver at the expense of the greater team needs is stupid and Wallace sure aint Megatron.

    Walace can surely get more elsewhere but we cant screw up our cap because other teams are stupid enough to overvalue ONE receiver.
