if we can also sign Wallace for somewere around the same amount we Signed Brown for then we can draft all defense unless a good TE fell to us. we have a ton of needs with Kiesel, Hampton, Troy, Clark, Harison and Taylor all leaving this season or next. we really cant afford to draft a high rb and wr.
so, actually keeping both Mendy and Wallace is likely? Or, do you think just one of them will go? If so - which one should. I'd take Mendy over Wallace as crazy as that might sound. I think the RB position is a little more dire.
