Both Mendenhall's and Bell's deals were rated as +0.5, meaning "common sense shines through."
The deal has the potential to be huge for both. If Mendenhall looks like he did before his knee injury, the Cards get a great runner and he will get to cash in in a year.
With the one-year deal with Mendenhall, PFF writes that the contract is "a move that works for both parties." Bell's salary is what gives great value. "They've essentially kept the on field production they saw from Adrian Wilson in 2012 and got a whole lot cheaper in the process," described PFF.
The deal with Powers is a net nothing, a lateral move. PFF says he "has developed into a solid (and nothing more) NFL cornerback." The deal "makes sense" because he started for Bruce Arians in Indianapolis.
