    FA Running Backs

    Richardson, Ricky, and Westbrook are still out there. I would say Ricky probably has more left in the tank, but Westbrook/McNabb would be interesting.

    We really, really don't need another RB.

    Re: FA Running Backs

    Ricky and Westbrook have both shown good hands receiving during their careers, it is just a thought. Would be kinda cool to get a recognized name player , if it could be done on the cheap. I hated seeing the Eagles get Ronnie Brown. Though I,m pretty sure he didn't come cheap.

    We have under $900K of cap space, we'd never afford either one of them. and in Westbrooks case, there's a reason he hasn't been picked up. He's old, over the hill and broken. We have Booker, who I think will be just as good, if not better at this point playing the receiving RB role.

    I see no reason for us to pursue any of these. It is a spot I think we are really solid at.

    I am shocked that Ricky does not have a job yet though. He definitely still has some in the tank.

    Westbrook had decent numbers last year with his limited carries...but yeah, I agree we don't need a RB. Our limited cap room is better suited elsewhere.

    AP cannot get away from us unless we let him.

    I would never equate pessimism with criticism. Not quite the same. But thanks for trying to call me out!
