    He will be a WR2 elsewhere, if Brian Hartline got 5 years/$30M, even though he had a better statistically stronger career before his deal was signed, Baldwin is coming off a post season of 13 receptions, 202 yards and 1 TD, thats with a crowded WR corps and a Super Bowl victory. Value may be skewed because of it, but if he gets a 4 year/$16M deal from a team, there getting good value there as well.

    But I think he is an ideal fit for our offense.

    I'm sure he does too. Yet he played thru much of that and produced when no one else was early in the season.

    He did, that's true. But being able to produce through those injuries in 2013 was the exception for him-- not the rule. In previous seasons, nagging injuries have kept him from making an impact for chunks of the year.

    I believe he'll restructure to stay. McCoy obviously knows him and how to use him. Obviously he's a likely candidate to be cut if left on this ridiculous contract. Don't believe he'll take that route.

    Hawkins was given the lowest tender by Cincy today. (Notoriously cheap bastards)

    Which means if we sign him we surrender NO DRAFT picks. But it will be hard because Cincy can still match any offer.
