Do you think Mendenhall is going to take less money than his previous contract?
Not that I'm in favor of resigning Spinny, but: yes & yes.
Last year, I would have taken 1,000 yards from one of the Steelers RBs. So, Yes, I think 1,000 yards is a good season.
Spinny knows that he is coming off of two injuries, that RBs are replaceable, that the RB position is a young man's position (26 is old), and that he sat out a game/looks like a "problem child" (whether he actually is or not). So, Yes, I think his new deal (with whomever) will be quite small.
