NFL Market Share Production

akeem-spence

Metric Recommendation: Akeem Spence has all the prerequisite abilities as a starting NFL defensive tackle. But through four seasons he has been below average impact except for 2014. Despite the positives in his athleticism, I would pay what he has brought to the table impact wise. Thus, I recommend a salary of 577,400 a year as a below average backup defensive tackle. Get a better wingman for McCoy or realize that he can’t carry everyone to production, like Spence.
