Elite? You're going too far there. The guy can't stay healthy.
He would be making more money than Steve Smith here if we signed him. $50 million range. He isn't worth that. At all.
Name me a Giants WR that left NY and did anything elsewhere. I'll wait for it.
No, he's elite. I agree that his health is a major concern and I wouldn't even think about giving him a $50M contract. If he could stay healthy, I'd consider it, but I don't think he'll ever be truly healthy and you have to sign him to a contract with that in mind.
The reason those WRs that have left haven't done anything is because they no longer have Eli throwing them the ball and they don't have Nicks drawing coverage. That's kind of like asking for a Carolina WR other than Smitty to have gone elsewhere and done anything. Teams don't really make it a habit of letting elite WRs just walk out the door. The Giants might because of all their needs and the fact that Nicks is constantly nicked up.
