That high ... granted, that sounds out of whack now. In the considerable shadow of Von Miller anyway. But Elvis has two straight Pro Bowls since the injury (voted in both times), and for that matter what might have happened in 2010, his second season in a 3-4? He'd already led the team in sacks every year - 06, 07, 08, and led the league in '09.
McD was a blight on our house, but at the time this deal wasn't nuts.
