He’s getting a one-year deal for $4 million per Adam Schefter, which actually seems like a lot.
I know McFadden has shown a lot of talent and potential, but that really hasn’t been on display enough since his truly breakout 2010 campaign. McFadden has missed 19 games over the past three seasons. He only had 379 yards rushing on 114 carries and five touchdowns last season.
I’m just not sure why the team would spend $4 million on a guy who probably can only be counted on for 12 games at the most. Why didn’t they just throw the money at Rashad Jennings, who was much more productive last season.
