Default Dwayne Bowe - 5 yrs - $56M - Wallace has a starting point now

Bowe, 28, had his best season in 2010, when he was voted to the Pro Bowl after catching 72 passes for 1,162 yards and a league-high 15 touchdowns.

bowe's potential is greater than wallace's. Don't know what Mike's going to get, but it'll probably be greater than what bowe signed for, which is insane to me. I guess people care about stats that much.

you don't pay that kind of money for potential - you pay for production - somehow I think Haley is to blame for both receivers underachieving

seems a bit close minded to me. I get that there has to be some kind of visual, for lack of a better word, proof of production, but it's not a stretch to claim bowe was hampered by poor quarterback play in an offense that wasn't the best fit for him, and wallace benefited much more from his position, which enhances his stats. I think if the roles were reversed bowe would out perform wallace's production here the past few years, but there's obviously no way to prove that.

Greg Jennings and Wallace are next - we'll see what the market will be - Mar 12


Several reports have indicated Jennings is looking for a deal in the range of $12 million to $14 million annually, which would put him in the top three in the NFL. Terms of Bowe's deal may help shape the receiver salary tier below Detroit's Calvin Johnson ($18.8 million) and Arizona's Larry Fitzgerald ($14.1 million), arguably the top two receivers in the game.

Bowe seems like much "better people" than Wallace and really appreciates what he has and has got - i've really liked the guy in his interviews.
That said - now that he signed - Adam Schefter still think's he'll end up with the Dolphins, but others could make it a "bid war" - either way - Wallace is going to get A-L-O-T of money. Huge money.

5 year / 60 million is what I'd guess.

From what i'm seeing as far as other teams looking to bid on him also, i'm going to go up to 70 with my guess, unbelievably, it could be a bit more.
