Mikey is 32, but has less than 900 career carries. He only turned pro when he was 26 and still has alot of left. His legs are still there and I donīt see any reason why he canīt go on for another 2 years. Running back is the easiest position to fill on a football team, just look at the success Samkon Gado has had in Green Bay. Look at how many 1,000 yard rushers the NFL has seen in the past few years. A few years ago getting a 1,000 still was a good achievment, but to be considered elite 1,500 is the magic number nowadays.
