Default Re: RB for next year

shaun alexader is 28 and he wants a longterm contract. not just the money, but the return on the investment should be considered here. historically a running back's performance declines significantly after 30 years of age and i cannot see tying up that kind of money on a guy who could only give you one or two good years. big free agent signings are not the way of the steelers. they will pick up an economical value-added rb or build through the draft, the way they have always done it.
