Default Those big name RBs like AP and Charles are nice, but how about a once big name thats cheaper?

Chris Johnson. 2015 before he was injured he was looking really good for the Cardinals.

If healthy Chirs could be a good pick up for cheap. He might just end up being done but who knows im sure we can bring him in for next to nothing.


Tandem of CJ and CJ could be nice and effective.
CJsquared

or

Darren McFadden could also be an option, which will probably cost a bit more but it be a better choice overall IMO.

DMac and CJ are both brittle as hell now. If we're gonna take a risk on a recently damaged RB, I'd pick Charles.

All 4 of these guys have serious injury concerns. CJ and DM have not finished a season in I don't even know how long.

All of these guys would break off 200 yards in our system before going on IR.

ugh, just draft one. I like Marlon Mack. Our team is in desperate need of some game breakers. I'd like to come out of the draft with a move TE, a guy like Mack, and a smaller scat guy that can force some match up problems.

Cheap and a game breaker, Joe Mixon.

Now let all the candy-ass fans piss and moan until he breaks a few long distance romps.

Listen, I'd probably root for Adolf Hitler if he scored some touchdowns, but suggesting that people shouldn't be disgusted by what Joe Mixon did is just wrong.

This right here. No more has been and retreads. Give McCoy a young kid instead of has beens.


I'm excited to see what McCoy can do with Booker that Kubiak refused to do. Set him up in the pass game.

After Tebow, I don't see the team wanting to deal with much in the way of PR problems now. We already have Talib for that.

what about Eddie Lacy on the cheap? Put the porker on a proper diet and crossfit and he could be a beast. We know that he is talented just weight management and durability are concerns. Can't imagine he's going to pull big $$ given the draft class and other more notable names.

He's only 26.

We already have that. We need some versatile dudes that put linebackers in a bind.

Lacy has to be better than Book. At the very least he's a much better pass blocker and receiver in the flat.

Just a thought...

I was referring to CJ. After watching the ways Atlanta stretched out D, using their running backs, I'd love to replicate that. And it makes all the sense in the world. I think, for the most part, you'll find mismatches with linebackers against TE's and running backs in pass patterns. Or you'll force them to adjust with safeties and get defenses out of their comfort zones. Find talent that can do that sort of thing.

Fix the line and you can good value - hell, throw a rookie back there!

The run blocking scheme has to get better first otherwise all acquisition is wasted cap.

yeah I agree with your perspective and we have nobody like that on our roster.

Here are FA rbs:

I'd say jaquizz, woodhead, and spiller/bush (past) fit that role. Quizz would be very interesting.

To many CJ's . Chris Johnson is washed up has been. With out a great line he is worthless. I hate to be the guy with bad news but when you have a line as bad as ours was it won't be fixed in a year.

Note

Our RB's will be fine with a line that works. CJ is great at the end of the season if he stay healthy . Booker got a case of the rookies and has Zero Leadership. On that note I'm not a huge fan of Studesville. I very much like him as a person but since her has been here our RB's just don't seem to have the mental toughness to make it. Fire away at that comment.

Latavius Murray might hit the open market too.

He is more of a pounder. Will be interesting to see what kind of RB they decide to go with will tell a lot about the system they are going to run.

I don't think it could hurt to bring in a guy like Chris Johnson. He'll be ultra cheap and really help. He doesn't have the miles on his legs alot of others do. He's still got that speed and can pick the lanes, we saw that in Arizona.

But I'm still for moving up to get Fournette. I think this guy is big time special. He might be the best player in college football last year.
