1 year, $2.5 million on a show-me contract. Better pass blocker and doesn't play like he's on a slip-n-slide.
I like it.
Daniel Jeremiah@MoveTheSticksAccording to sources, Rashard Mendenhall's deal with Arizona is 1 year, $2.5 mil, with potential to earn extra $1 mil.
I like it, clear upgrade over Beanie. A much better pass protector and receiving threat.
Beanie = 1 fumble every 63 carries.
Mendenhall = 1 fumble every 96 carries.
What??..I don't see that RM is a clear upgrade over Beanie as far as running talent. But Mendenhall is the new coaches guy and that makes it a better deal I guess.
However, Rashard is no receiving threat. In 4 seasons with Arians he had a total of 29 receptions. Same time period minus 2008 Beanie had 27.
Mendenhall had 66 receptions from 2009 to 2011. Beanie has 41 in his career. The only stat close to those numbers are rushing TDs in which Mendenhall has 29 career rushing TDs and Beanie has 24.
