Redman and Dwyer are also free agents next year, and I doubt they keep all 3, plus Batch, Rainey, and Will Johnson.
Mendenhall's very inconsistent. Granted the line hasn't been pro-bowl caliber, and it HAS held up nicely with Dwyer in, but Dwyer's providing more consistency in just two games than Mendenhall ever has in his entire career. I think Mendenhall can be an explosive back, and he's a weapon, but I doubt he'll sign a contract with us next year.
