You maybe right McDolfan...........there's going to be a lot of interest in Wallace, you can only put so much into what these talking heads say.
There are of course a lot of differences between Wallace and Manning. Manning didn't want to go to a team rebuilding. Plus the Broncos ponied up a ton of $$.
This time we have enough to bring in Wallace, $$ + a promising young QB with a pass oriented offensive. I feel much better about Wallace than I did Manning.
I'm just nervous about a bidding war between the Vikings, Patriots, Browns etc and end up left at the alter.
I hear you, the $12M/yr figure has been thrown around, that figure may balloon beyond that. I expect the Pat's interest is mild, expectations are they resign Welker. That means they'll have a bunch of $$ already tied up in Welker and Gronkowski. So that leaves the Phins, Vikings and Browns. Remember, Florida doesn't have an individual income tax (on a $12M contract that can mean an extra mil) and Tannehill/Philbin just seem like a better match than the other two.
