I like TJ, keeps himself in great shape, runs hard... sure why not?

Good player i know money is no object to us so we could get him but i think at his age he would want to play on a contending team & we are on a 2 to 3 yr plan.

I've always liked TJ. He would be a fine addition as long as we make sure that we have some youth at the position, too.

He's like the anti CP in his approach to the game. JLC compared his stats to CP's over the years & made the point that TJ has been just as productive w/out the drama & big paycheck.

He's from Big Stone GAp in Va. so he might want to come home. I'd ideally rather see a young draft pick (4th or later) added to the mix, but if they decide to nab a vet, TJ maybe the best out there, including LT & WEstbrook. Dude is tough & durable.

Ummmm, I'd say no. Clinton is as good and alittle younger. We need to just keep CP and draft a young rb.

No, no more old players especially RBs.

I like Thomas Jones but would rather have Chester Taylor if there's a way we could get him to come here.

Definitely. He's a workout freak...probably why he's not in LT or CP condition.

If we go the old free agent route then he has much more in the tank then LT or Westbrook. I think I prefer Chester Taylor slightly. Would really rather draft a RB and leave the free agency dollars to other positions.

I would definitely take him over CP

Re: As Long As We're Talking Running Backs Over 30 Years Old
 
I would too, but CP is under contract with us already and Jones isn't. I know the seasons uncapped, but I don't think Jones is sufficently superior to CP to justify cutting Portis, paying him anyways, and then picking up Jones and paying him probably close to the same thing. Just not worth it.

Re: As Long As We're Talking Running Backs Over 30 Years Old
 
With no cap who cares, it's a perfect time to dump CP. Snyder has shown in the past he's got no problem with paying a guy to not play for the Skins so it's not out of the question.
