    Cut Lewis, use that savings to re-sign Henry, draft a cheap rookie to compliment the big fella.

    RB problems fixed.

    Without a doubt. Nothing better than watching Henry in open space and you know he's about to go for a long gain.

    How we used Henry yesterday is how we all expected we would use him when we drafted him.

    Get him someone else to pair with and he'll be just fine.

    Nothing more exhilarating than watching defenders slide off Henry like Rain X on those big runs.

    Let's talk what it'll take:

    D. Johnson got three-years, $39 million. Avg. $13M per. Guaranteed $31.9M.
    Bell got four-years, $52.5 million. Avg. $13.1M per. Guaranteed $27M.
    Gurley got four-years, $57.5 million. Avg. $14.8M per. Guaranteed $45M.
    Elliott got six-years, $90 million. Avg. $15M per. Guaranteed $50M.

    So I expect Henry will get a four or five-year deal in the range of $55M-$60M. $13M or $14M per. Guaranteed $35-45M.

    You have to possibly do a deal with Tanny, L. Ryan and maybe Conklin. Here's a list of all '20 UFAs: 2020 NFL Free Agents Tracker

    Well, I usually say NO...that RB's are rented MULES...ride em hard...draft another one in 4 years. But, BDH is different. For his size he doesn't seem to take "the big hit" and so far has avoided any significant injury. So, as long as it wasn't a RB record deal I say YES....besides...if SOQFG is worth his contract, BDH is worth that much at least to the success of the team.....

    And to add to the mix, here's how it's working out for the highest-paid RBs in rushing yards:

    Elliott #7
    Gurley #23
    Bell #20
    Johnson #41

    I don’t see how you can’t, unless the grand plan is to change the scheme of this team in the next year or two (and it’s the Titans so you know that’s not happening) based on who we draft as a QB. Not sure of the numbers tbh, but I would guess when Henry has significant statistical games we win and when he doesn’t we probably don’t. When he gets going he is almost impossible to stop, imagine if the O line was marginally better and if the dumb penalty’s didn’t kill drives what those numbers might look like.

    Yes, but we need a well rounded 2nd back over 5'9".

    Absolutely not. He’s a one dimensional back. Don’t get me wrong, he’s great at what he does but not worth huge $. Only a complete back is worth big $ and they rarely are. Too easy to replace. That’s how you get in cap trouble overpaying one dimensional players.
