Riiiiight, because we've seen sooooo many rational deals for free agents in the past.
The largest free agent running back contract this past off season was for 4 years and 16 million.
The year before that, Ray Rice, who's never been injured and is a featured back, was signed to only 40 million over 5 years. Matt Forte, similarly never injured and a featured back, only got 30 million over 4 years with just 17 guaranteed.
You expect me to believe that Stewart, who hasn't fuging played in almost a year, who's has a nagging injury of some sort or another his entire career, who had his best statistical season four goddamn years ago, and hasn't topped 800 yds since, is somehow going to demand more money than Matt Forte and the same type numbers as Ray Rice?
Get back to me when you live in reality.
