Let's hope Kevan Barlow has better luck with #22.
Ouch, if you look at the comparative cap hits/production of Willie Parker and Duce Staley in the 3 years they have been Steelers it hits home even more.
Total Cap Hit (3 years) - $1.9million
Total Yards - 2882
Total Cost Per Yard - $660
Total Cap Hit (3 years) - $6million
Total Yards - 978
Total Cost Per Yard - $6134
Willie does represent tremendous value, but Staley has cost just under 10 times
as much per yard - pretty shocking.
That distance will get wider this year as Staley is worth a $3.8million cap hit this year and a $3.1million cap hit next year - with absolutely no production for it.
