You just posted this to see if I'd ask them for a new smiley to describe it:

Why would we want to do that, just to back up Frank Summers?

Too expensive. I'm not a Willie basher by any means, but running back is not a good position to franchise. Besides the high salaries, it is one of the easiest positions to fill. I'm not saying Willie would be easy to replace but the reality is, you can replace a Pro Bowl running back with a young player just drafted or with a running back by committee if you have the young horses. It has been done before.

We could use two tags next year. I'd say the most likely candidates are big snack and Ryan Clark (although that would be a lot of money for two safeties).
