I kinda doubt it, but you never know. $ isn't the issue.
If I'm AC or Mack, what would impact my decision is the QB situation. High time to throw stats make an OL's job a lot harder on one side (passing), and ineffective passing translates to Ds keying on the run, and in turn harder on both the OL (on the other side) and RBs. If Funch is weighing an offer, he's probably asking questions about QB too.
I was talking more in terms of him not being a fit in a 4-3. I’ve never heard that mentioned anywhere. I’ve heard he’s an ideal 3-tech and might even be able to play 5-tech if needed, but never that he won’t be good at the 3-tech position.
Welcome to the "RB hate club"
Yeah... I really like Mack but IMO the trends and the value in the modern NFL suggest that the giving big money for second contract RBs is not a good investment in huge majority of cases.
Ballard likes taking care of his guys and I can see him giving Mack a good extension, though...
Some of the big dominoes started falling with Brees and Rivers staying and leaving respectively. I wonder when we are goin to hear about AC and possible Mack extension...
