I would go up to $8 million assuming we are able to still get decent OL help and keep Patterson.

Two surgically repaired knees.
Has lost a step, or two... gets caught from behind now
Ball security issues
Can't pass protect, making him a 2-down back.
Has lost his elusiveness... no "squirt through the hole", if you will
32 years old

$2 million, tops. Use him situationally. Not a workhorse anymore.

$5-$6 million sounds reasonable

Just curious what kind of season do you think he is capable of if we resigned him for $6 million guaranteed? How many yds and ypc?

I would cut them a check to *not* re-sign him.

I want more than yds/ypc. I want blocks. Receptions. Play fakes. Proper route running. Knowing the playbook. etc etc etc.

If they can't find that with whomever is replacing him, it still means they'll most likely be forced to try and find that guy sooner rather than later.

Depends on a lot of factors like the line but I don't see why he can't be a 1,200 - 1,300 yard back.

I voted 2 mil mainly because I'm ready to move on but if we are keeping him then it needs to be a bargain.

I voted that I wouldn't resign him. He's just too one dimensional and the speed that made him a future HOFer isn't there anymore. He's not very good catching the ball and a nightmare in pass protection. When he's on the field they're either running or playing 10 versus 11.

If they were to resign him I believe the team would feel pressure to again make him a focus of the offense to the detriment of the passing game. I loved his years here, but I'm ready to move on.

Well said. I feel the same way and voted the same as well

I don't think he will have more than 600 yards this season, but it will be interesting to see what happens.

I truly hope we don't bring him back as sad as it is to say that. We need to get younger. It seems like Spielman is looking at durability which I'm glad to see. That's what we got in both tackles. Murray is fairly durable although I still think we will draft a RB. There is no need anymore for AP in this system. We aren't a ground a pound team and run primarily out of the gun. We need to move on

With the right team I could see him having a great season or left in the tank.

Hes not the runner that time forgot. He is effing old by RB standards, he has ALWAYS been fragile (only played 70% of games since drafted) and now he is worn down and fragile to boot. Yes he will probably have a couple of highlight worthy games, maybe even close in on 200 yards in a game once but the "AP carries team to playoffs" days are gone. He is 32, he'll be half way to 33 by the time the season starts. He'll be lining up against folks that are a DECADE younger than him in some cases. Its not about how much is left in his tank, its about how big his tank is now.
