Free agent RB Ladell Betts is visiting Denver and New Orleans this week. Longtime Redskin is healthy after serious injury in 2009.

For some reason I read the headline as Lendale White. Thankfully when I read it the 2nd time it turned into Betts. Betts > White

No it doesn't. That graph comes nowhere close. It does match his carries by year. But not his YPC.

Who else that is out there do you think we should bring in to compete in the event that Moreno's injury goes south and we need depth? For my part, I see no reason not to look at the guy. I sure as hell hope that he's not the starter at any point in the season - but if it gets down to that point, I'm not sure who you think is available now that would be a better option.

Yeah ok, you're right it's carries. He is done. As for the better option, who's working at the local cell phone store? Or Westbrook.

The guys I like...are Betts and Wynn. I think Wynn played for the Pack and showed alot of potential.

Having watched him the last couple of years here in DC, it pretty clear that he is done. Think Lamont Jordon with injury history.

I think Ladell Betts grades our more like a Mike Anderson than a Lamont Jordan.

If that's the case, let's bring Taters and Ron Dayne in. 3K on the ground here we come!

For my part, I'd have rather had Peyton Hillis, but that aint happening. Ladell Betts isn't such a bad option to have in as a third string back. He might not have a tremendous amount of upside - but let's face it, if we're going to our third option, the season is in peril. There's not a lot of options out there right now.

Nice to see that she's even more unintelligible on Twitter than she is in the "articles" she writes. That's embarassing. You're an adult who works in the media as her profession, start speaking like you have an education.
