I don't agree with you at all. Duce is way over paid. And management should have for seen the likely hood that he would spend sugnificant time on IR. At the time he was hired he was given a contract that made him the 5th highest paid running back in the NFL. I ask you is he the 5th best running back in the NFL? I sincerly doubt it, I don't think that he is even in the top ten. This was a major error on the part of the front office, one that will hurt the team cap wise for quite a while.
