Not a bad deal for our 3rd pairing Offensive dman and our 2nd PP QB. I like the guy and think he can recapture what he showed in his rookie year in Dallas. He sure showed glimpses of it last year.

Know it’s UFA vs RFA so the deals aren’t 1-1, but I’d take niskanen at $4.00 before taking Wideman at $5.5.

$2.3 is wonderful for this guy.
