    Kevin Smith or Joseph Addai would be great pickups. The life of NFL running backs is so short. Getting crushed by the opposing team's biggest players 20+ times a game X 16 is a lot of collisions. Multiply that by 4-6, your body starts to wear down. Only the most elusive play for a long time. Walter Payton, Barry Sanders, Emmitt.

    Kevin Smith would be perfect...

    If healthy. When healthy, he rivaled CJ imo in their rookie years- just had a much...MUCH worse o-line.

    I like Harper going in and even think Ringer would be ok...

    but he's about as average as it gets. And injured too?... Bring someone in.

    granted Ringer could probably be replaced by a street FA on skills, but his experience on the Titans will probably ensure his roster spot.

    1. Ryan Torrain is no average runningback

    2. He wasn't healthy his last 2 years, I mentioned his durability as an issue.

    3. 5580 yards in 4 healthy seasons with Washington, as the previous poster stated, pretty darn good.

    Gado, that clown nearly made the team under fish face.

    No veteran RBs
