All Day AP more like Sometimes in the Morning AP now.

But we needed a body and someone that can handle a good sized workload. He fits the bill.

Hopefully they don't use this as reason to push Marshall to IR before they find out if its really needed.

Hope he can find the fountain of youth here but I doubt it’s going to happen.

They’re friends, played together at OU, work out together in the offseason

Last two seasons combined a 3.1 YPC and he is 33 years old. That is well past the expiration date of your typical running back. I doubt he will out perform a practice squad player at this point.

Kinda hard to like this move when our left Tackle is faster than AP [emoji19]

I suppose this means AP is our #1 RB for first 2 downs. I don't believe AP would sign if he knew he wouldn't get to play much.

Reportedly there is NO guaranteed money. It is almost a 2-week tryout.

Trent was very vocal on Social Media behind AD signing , they have been close for years.

I'm ok with it. Had to bring someone in, might as well be AP. Apparently Darkwa wasn't coming in unless he was going to be crowned the starter...

At a minimum he provides a healthy body to eat up carries, while we kick the tires and see what he has over the next couple weeks. Just his presence likely helps the running back room too.

My wish for the 3rd preseason game is to see Bibbs and AP split carries with the 1st offense for the 1st half. I know that won't happen, but it would be good to see what they can do with the starters. I actually think Bibbs is better than Kelley, but he doesn't get any love.

Time will tell if this signing means anything, or if he is actually on the 53 man roster, but for now it's a move that had to be made.

BTW, AP had more attempts per game than RK and SP combined last year, and averaged more yards than them - mostly behind a terrible Cardinals O-line. I don't see it as a downgrade when you compare him to what we have. Even at 33 defenses will have to respect his talent, opening up things for AS and all his other weapons.

He has never said that . He didn't do that in NY,something seems wrong here.

[quote=skinsfan69;1198284]I get all that but he is 33 years old. He is not going to fit in with what we have going on here. He's going to want the ball 20 plus times like he did in New Orleans. I find it hard to believe that this wasn't done to try and sell tickets. Garbage ass Vinny Cerrato type of signing.[/quote]

We need someone who is not hurt to run the ball, right now we only have two players that are %100 healthy.

Jay's job is on the line and Dough Williams has been consistently saying that they need to improve the running game (a judgement on all the returning RBs not named Chris Thompson). With Guice out and all the injuries, the running game would have been back to last year's status.

AP was given a 1-year deal, which is very low risk/high reward type of situation IMO.

I'd prefer this outcome, as opposed to giving up a draft pick on a 1-year rental. Did you forget the TJ Duckett trade? That was Vinny ball.

Also, I prefer this to the status quo of having a recovering CT, banged up Perine and just Kelly and Bibbs healthy.

It's an OK move. We need a healthy body. AP is a healthy body. If anything, it will push Fat Rob and Perine.
