Everyone has drops maybe more than others but if the money right, sure why not? Still not a number 1 but can be a better 2

LaFell's getting paid, whether by us or another team. Anyone imagining vet minimum is retarded.

if he wants to stay with this team he'll take what he's worth, which is bad WR2/good WR3 money

The number LaFell has in his head is likely in the range of a #2 receiver.
 
There is only so much money to go around and a lot of talent that needs to be resigned or replaced in the next few years.
 
Does DG think he can get a better return on his investment for that type of money in the draft or free agency? 
 
Unless LaFell takes it to the next level in the coming weeks to justify #2 money he may be playing for someone else next year.

He is a damn good blocker. I wish he were more reliable.

This "drops" bullshat is hilariously bad. Steve has dropped more important catches this year than LaFell and everybody is off his case. LaFell is a beast of a blocking WR and helps the running game tremendously. Not only does he do that, but he's good for 600-700 yards a season. That's a number 2 WR all day. I don't know what expectations you people have for a #2 WR but you should probably scale them back.

 

So many fans here spoiled by what we had with Moose and Smith. It's never going to be like that again. Trust in that. Two of the Top 75 WR of all-time on the field at the same time is a rare commodity.

Better improve and learn what "consistency" is.

 

I'd keep him but only for damn cheap.

LaFell isn't a guy to turn the tide of a game. When the team isn't playing well, he will not step up and make a play to change momentum. Instead, he snowballs the bad play.

Also I believe he plays better with roster competition. He dropped nothing in 2011 while trying to overtake Legedu for the starting spot. He was mostly OK last year with Murphy flirting with the #2 spot. This year he was basically penciled as the starter before training camp and his rookie hands have returned.

Because of those factors, he should get lowballed on the guaranteed money, but have incentives to keep him productive. He is a good player and I like him, but he doesn't need to get complacent.
