I'm not saying sign him, I just think it's funny that the year we finally switch back to a 4-3, Poe is available in free agency and he's one of the best NT's in the league.

I see your point. Then again J-Wall never really had an expensive contract with us during his prime years as he developed later on in his career. His age kept his contract manageable. I think not too many teams are willing to pay a huge amount on a 3-4 NT even as talented as Poe unlike say 6-7 years ago. Every down pass rushers seem to command the big money.

Also too, Poe has played a lot of football since being a rookie. Only missing 2 games in 5 seasons. I think his body is starting to break down after 200 games of double and triple teams. J-Wall played in 164 games over 12 seasons.

I think you added wrong. Poe has only been in the league 5 years and has played in 78 of a possible 80 career games, not 200. At 26 years old he's in the prime of his career and has a lot of good football left.

Pretty certain it is multiplication he did wrong.....but down there in the States you have new math, so I could be wrong.
