As far as Wallace having us by the balls, yes until this signing period ends he has the upper hand. But once over we have him by the short hairs my friend. And even if he signs for another team we get a first round pick and the chance to shore up other needs and possibly strike gold with later round WR pick. All is not lost, do not give up hope.
Um...Bettis wasn't a FA we traded for him with the Rams. We got him and a 3rd round pick and gave up a 2nd round pick in 1996 and a 4th round pick in 1997.
