On the business end he is not adding value to the team by being injury prone. There are several leaders on this team capable of picking up the slack. WHY would you pay a guy who cant stay on the field just for Leadership? Pass, Fleener has been far more productive of the two and you want to let him walk? just think about that for a second Allen cant stay on the field , Fleener can and produces but you want to retain Allen? Doyle has done more than Allen has lol id honestly rather keep him and let Allen walk. Would i like to keep Allen? yea at a extremely reasonable price, but im throwing bank to Fleener over Allen because he EARNED it
That's never really been Irsay's way. He made similar claims when it came time to re-sign Freeney, talking about making him the highest paid defensive player...same when they re-signed Manning, talking about making him the highest paid player in the league. And as we all remember he took to Twitter to brag about making Cherilus the highest paid RT in the league.
