What about Mendenhall? Career 4.1 ypc behind one of the worst lines in football over the last several years. Not too shabby. Jerome Bettis had a career average of 3.9.
I say bring Mendenhall back. Chargers let Turner go to Atlanta and burned a 1st rounder on Ryan Matthews- how is that working out for them?
Why let a perfectly good and complete back walk away when you could resign him cheap?
How many teams are looking for a 4 year veteran coming off a knee injury who had a 3.5 ypc last year? How much could it possibly cost to resign him?
Mendenhall has given good service to the Steelers. 2 1000 yard seasons. But you're all so sensitive over his twitter posts you want to see him gone.
"Get rid of Mendenhall! Draft a rb in the first round! There is a Kijana Carter, Rashan Salaam, Chris Perry, Ron Dayne, Tim Worley out there waiting for us!"
