Lastly, Haley likes the "RB by committee" approach... which means that he'd rather have three or four good RBs than one great RB.
In the end, the decision will be Droppy's:
Sign for less money.
Go elsewhere for more.
I don't think he'll get any offer in Pittsburgh and he'll sign for a modest amount in Indy or Buf.
All generalizations are dangerous.
