Mewelde Moore/Cedric Benson/Joseph Addai
These are three (prolly the top three FA RB's) guys I'd like us to target in FA when things get back to normal.

Moore may not be a starter but he's a very solid back up and could spell Torain and be a one/two punch if Torain materializes into a real #1 back.
This will be his 8th year in the league, he may be a tad bit battered but he's a savvy vet.

Cedric benson is beginning his 7th year in the NFL and is somewhat similiar to Moore in IMO.
He's coming off two 1000 yard seasons and I'd be jazzed to get him as a FA.
That may be a luxury if Torain is a real starter but Danny can afford it.

Addai hasnt exactly been a barn burner but he's done some very good things for the Colts. He's been a bit fragile lately which is a concern but he's only got five years of wear on him.

If we can sign any one of these guys we will go into next season with a very solid backfield.

Re: Mewelde Moore/Cedric Benson/Joseph Addai
Yeah I would have to agree NO THANKS.

Re: Mewelde Moore/Cedric Benson/Joseph Addai
Well they are not the same three guys.
Totally different. And they are three guys that prolly want their current teams to retain them, which means they have value.
Our RB stable is full of unknowns and maybe's.
I dont want to go into the next season with Ryan Somebody and his backup Joe Vanilla.

Your joking right?

Re: Mewelde Moore/Cedric Benson/Joseph Addai
No, no and no. On the free agency front, running back is very low on the priority list.

Re: Mewelde Moore/Cedric Benson/Joseph Addai
If the Skins add a running back via free agency, they need to find one with more speed than the ones on the roster now. There is no "breakaway threat" at the moment; it would be good to have one.

Neither Moore, Benson nor Addai provides that kind of speed.

I'd pass.

Re: Mewelde Moore/Cedric Benson/Joseph Addai
I'll tell you three other guys who could be available-Ganther, Betts, Cartwright. Boom! End of discussion. Lock this bad boy up

If Addai could stay healthy, he'd be a great pick up. But he's not healthy and five years of wear is a lot for a guy who can't stay healthy

Is not Tiki.............UNretiring???
Maybe Earl Campbell??

Re: Mewelde Moore/Cedric Benson/Joseph Addai
Other needs than running back are way more important. We can draft a 7th rounder for all i care like that kid from pitt that might be smaller than MJD

Re: Mewelde Moore/Cedric Benson/Joseph Addai
Who is this Ryan Somebody. Thats a horrible name. Poor guy. It must of been tough growing up with a name like that.......

Re: Mewelde Moore/Cedric Benson/Joseph Addai
Torain isn't sturdy enough to go the full season.
Even Kyle Shanahan will come right out and tell you that.
RB by committee will prolly be the way we go.
We're going to have to find another half decent back from somewhere and I don't think its going to come from a draft pick.
Where else you going to go other than free agency?

Re: Mewelde Moore/Cedric Benson/Joseph Addai
We need a back to go with Torain, but not another aging vet who's better days are behind him.

Benson is the only back worth looking at here, but he doesn't seem like a great fit for this offense. Addai is nice when healthy, but he's had more than his fair share of injuries the past few seasons.
