that's not his style, mendy is more of a finesse back. but like others said, because of that running style a zone blocking scheme would fit him more

I just don't see signing him to another big contract, with the cap situation we are in I say it is time to say bye to him and move on to some new blood.

I don't necessarily disagree. I think it all depends on what the Steelers think they can get out of him. Not sure if they're fed up with him or not.

I do agree that giving him a big contract would be a mistake. I can't see another team going after him in a big way either.

Everyone, if the Steelers decide to re-sign Mendenhall would you be pissed or okay? Because I know I'd be fine with that and we could address the future of the RB in future drafts... Mendenhall needs one more chance to be the 1,000+ yard rusher he used to be and more!

Would we have a choice, I would rather go ahead and cut ties with him now and get our future back in this years draft. They are some good ones to be had out of this draft.

Give him the boot. He's the running back version of Mike Wallace in my eyes. Lackadaisical effort, poor attitude, etc... Good riddance.
