    Trade Percy. Aquire Wallace. Pay him the money retaining Percy would have cost.
    Put Wright in the slot and you have a more balanced and, perhaps better, offense.

    But Spielman is a value shopper and he probably wont show interest, much less, be able to compete with teams with more cap space.

    I would be very surprised if Wallace became a Viking.

    I would prefer to keep Percy Harvin and go with another FA WR that wouldn't cost as much and also find one in the draft.

    Why not just trade Percy to Miami (his home) and eliminate the only other bidder for Mike Wallace? We could get our guy, not break the bank, and get much needed draft picks for Percy. Dolphins love this trade because Percy > Wallace. Works for everyone.

    Sorry Rick! Keep up the good work.

    You are a wise and observant man.

    HOLY HELL Kevon... I agree with you!

    I don't like Wallace, nevermind as a #1 receiver. Wallace is a guy who has a role. He's a better version of Berrian. No more. There's no denying his speed, his straightline speed is unrivaled in this league. Problem is, there's more to football than running fast. He doesn't catch very well with his hands, he's got an attitude, he doesn't run the complete route tree. I don't even have faith in him to run more than half of it reliably. He's not overly big or physical, and he'll cost a LOT of money.

    He's Bernard Berrian 2.0. Mark my words. Somebody will overpay him based on some alright production with a guy with a huge arm throwing to him. He'll go to another team, be the #1 and be average to below average as far as production is concerned. COmpare the stats, he's a slightly improved Berrian.

    I'm not opposed to getting him, as we NEED receivers. Anything is better than nothing, but I hope we don't sacrifice better players in order to get him. I just don't think we're equipped to use him well.

    There are 2 Wrs that will be better than him in this draft.
    I think Hunter and Woods will be eventually better than him as pure WRs.
    He is a good wr but not worth the 11 million he is asking for.
