My question is this -- is Walden's production at $725,000/year worthwhile compared to Spencer's at $8,800,000 (likely ~$10,000,000/y if the resign him)?
It helps frame the conversation of deciding whether or not the Cowboys should break the bank on Spencer.
How is mediocre - and I'd argue that he's not up to that level - acceptable as a starter? Walden's production for a year doesn't equal Spencer's for three games.
The only way to make Walden production mediocre is to add his stats to the other LBs on Green Bay and average it out. As you did.
