Correct Tony. We will keep Mendy because he doesn't cost a spot and we don't save zilch so he'll be on the PUP list and more than likely be cut in 2013 unless we get him at... wait for it.... vet minimum.
However, I still DO like the Mendenhall pick in 2008, I really do (best part of that draft, was that my step-brother is a diehard Cowboys fan, wanted Mendenhall in the WORST way. Dallas was a pick before us and he was chanting "Mendenhall!" They went onto pick Felix Jones and we picked Mendenhall. So damn funny because he LOATHES us.)
Mendy could have been an absolute wrecking machine with a Dan Kreider in front of him. Bone-head Arians ended Willie Parker and now he ended Mendenhall behind a treacherous offensive line without any protection of a fullback. F***.
