I think that is a fair assessment. He doesnt have the huge stats as you point out and in the 3 super bowl's he played.....2 of them he wasnt that great at.

I still think he should be around for the next 5 seasons or more, but the team window on getting to another Super Bowl is closing. All the great supporting cast is getting old and the young guys arent that special so far.
once a sandwich artist....soon to be Sack Artist.
