    No. I think players are replaced easily with lesser quality. RB specifically because of the way they’re viewed, need to go for broke with monster paydays the first chance they get. That’s when they’re priced out of every team’s interest. So yea, by the time they’re 27-28-29, no team wants the contract regardless how it stacks up to other positions because often the step down (or in some cases a better RB is available) is acceptable for the team.

    stat sheet or not RB are not running for 1500 yards. Mind you that’s the 3rd time in 4 seasons after coming back from injury and no OL and a passing game that makes no effort to keep the defenders back.

    All that added together, you keep the clear best RB. There’s isn’t one better and the cost in general isnt that high at $16 mil, nevermind the $10 mil dead cap if another team doesn’t negotiate the contract.

    If a team has the best of a position, you try to keep him. I thought this is what everyone was arguing about giving up AJ Brown for?

    1 yard run by hilliard, TE screen to the blocking-based TE for a loss of 2 yards, Incomplete.... punt and thats the best case scenario.

    A) you started with IF. So until it happens, it’s theoretical and til now, no reason outside injury to think that will happen.

    B) I don’t think you get any worthwhile draft capital out of him and whatever you do get, now needs used on a RB and hope it’s not Haskins.

    and honestly for his contract, no one is moving for a 2 down back.....

    his best spot is the Titans, ultimately it's why he was drafted in the 2nd round... The Ravens could be the only other run based team, but they have their own issues right now.... and 49ers have CMAC.

    I don’t care about stats. I watched Derrick Henry run. He goes down instantly on contact where he used to run over multiple people. He is not even close to the same player and a player as big as he is, will decline quickly once it begins and it has begun.

    At least now we’re at the “this is what I believe” stage so you can take your “GM expertise” and jam it.

    I'm not going to judge him off a year behind Dennis Daley and Aaron Brewer.......

    and he still hit 1500 rushing yards, which Zeke Elliott, CPatterson etc would die to consistently hit..... and 330 receiving yards on an avg of 12 yards a reception..... Stats don't tell the story, you're right.... the 429 players injured on the roster does though........ and for him to still be successful, says alot.

    So it’s best to wait until after he becomes completely useless so you can get nothing in return? Genius thinking

    Mighty big "if" there for 3rd round pick. I mean 2nd and 3rd rounders work out all the time. Remember Dodd, I mean Dudd? Henry has at least 2 good/great years left. I will bet you all my moolah that BDH smashes 1,000 yds. Tie a weight to your waste and jump in the deep end.
