Default Willie Parker's Stock isn't that high...

...I'm starting to think fast Willie will be back in the burgh.

I don't think anyone is going to offer him more than 4 mill per year, and the teams on the market for a running back aren't looking for a #1, which is what he wants.

I think there are good odds that Willie will be back in the B&G this season.

if we make an offer, and i hope we do, he will be back. rb is by far the worst position to play in the nfl. you usually get 1 good contract if your really good and thats it. your body get destroyed 20-30 times a game and you considered over the hill at 29. hampton just signed a big money contract at 33 and parker at 29 cant even get an offer. dont get me wrong im not a huge parker fan by any means but it must really suck to be a rb in the nfl

i am hoping parker is not back here. i would rather have moore, a more versatile RB, be the 2nd RB.

hmm, I wonder if the lack of offers has anything to do with the fact that it's obvious that he sucks. Or at least obvious to anyone who isn't wearing black-and-gold blinders. Maybe there was something to that all these years. I am amazed that there are STILL people who actually sincerely believe that he's good.

Please, please, let some other team be stupid enough to make Parker their problem instead of ours. I am all too worried that everyone else has figured out he's useless, but if he's still available, we'll feel some compulsion to pick him up while all the other teams laugh at us. We'll justify it to ourselves by saying "he knows the offense," or something like that. But we'd be idiots. It's essentially like voluntarily renewing a curse. I would rather see him out of the league than back on our roster, even as the last man on the bench. Time to shake that bad habit and move on.

Oh........just wait, he's gonna come back like Carey Davis just for the benefit of steelreserve.

Not surprising that a 30 year old RB with lots of carries, poor receiving skills, lost a step and injury history the past couple seasons has limited value.

I was pretty close to starting a thread about him myself. I'm a little surprised that he hasn't made the news for even having met with a team, much less fielded any offers.

I honestly wonder. Seriously, sometimes I think we're so slow to catch on about this that even if Parker died, we'd re-sign him as a zombie and keep trying to run him up the middle.

He only has receiving issues beyond 5 yards.

His ability declines exponentially each additional foot beyond that.

I'd prefer the glide and suddeness of RedZone Redman .... in the 3rd. RB spot of course. IMO Mewelde Moore has earned the 2nd. spot.
