whats the thought process behind starks not being affordable? i mean, obviously he is a luxury and in that it makes him expendable, but what makes people think he expects a big contract? he did nothing more than play a backup role this season and in training camp he was most peoples' pick for not making the team.

I think the thought process is that at 5.5 YPC he may have caught the eye of some other team that may offer him more than the Packers are willing to pay.

Maybe affordable is not the right word to be using as they could easily sign him if they wanted and it wouldn't hurt their cap position too much.

He played a backup role but it was big. 100 yards in one game. a 5.5 YPC average. As far as being everyone choice to be cut last season so what. If a guy is your choice to be cut and he has a great year does that mean you still should cut him. A lot can change in a year.

I see James Jones and James Starks in the same boat. Both have played important roles and both are more than capable of stepping up and playing more than a backup role if need be but they may become victims of crowded positions and perceived over value. It seems that a lot of people look at a team as a bunch of high priced starters and the rest a bunch of minimum wage backups. IMO however, if you want quality depth you have to pay for it.

Jones made about 3.75 million last year and I think he earned it. If they can get him to go for another deal worth around 3.5 to 4 million per year I say go for it. As for Starks, he earned every bit of his 655 thousand dollars and I say he is worth a deal somewhere in the neighborhood of 2 million per year especially since they have Lacy relatively cheap for the next 2 years (771K and 925K) If he keeps up production they will give him an extension and his 1 mill number in 2016 will certainly go up. For the next two years however spending 4 to 4.5 million on a very good group of RBs is something I could live with. D. Harris is also a FA after next year.

I wonder what everyone else thinks these guys would be worth?
