Depends on the numbers. Special talent but spotty injury history obviously.

Offseason Goal: Draft durable, tough, intelligent offensive lineman who are dependable technicians and avoid penalties aka drive killers. Wonderlic scores matter.

Cook is still a very good RB IMO, but if it's too expensive Mattison is ready, willing and able to be a featured back.

I agree with you, we have to see what the extension looks like. It scares me a little, because he has not been healthy enough. He is very talented though.

If the guy could just stay healthy I would be thrilled. Guys a great talent and by all indications a class act. But man the injury thing just makes it a bit concerning.

I'd rather wait until he hits FA. If we cant get one of the other top backs from his class, Jones, McCaffrey, Kamara, etc. then sure, sign him.
