Why did we trade for duckett?

this trade makes no sense to me we trade two draft picks for a guy who didnt even dress out last game. why make this trade i know portis was hurt and betts was a little banged up. i know betts is fa after this year but what i read in the USA today they also said duckett was a FA. if this is true we trade two picks away when if we wanted him to replace betts if he left we could have got him for free. and we arent using him right know he might walk after this season to another team. i just dont understand there moves sometimes in the front office. if we needed a player at any position we needed a another CB or O-lineman. This week is a big week for us to prove ourselves v.s. a good defense we need this win so i hope everyone that goes makes that place a living hell for leftwich.

Portis insurance I believe. Mabye a bigger role awaits him, but it baffles me as well.

Just checking.

Re: Why did we trade for duckett?

I know it's very early, but so far most of our new acquisitions are not having much of an impact other then messing with team chemistry. I hope there's some more gelling before this weekend's game against a tough and solid team.

I think he still has a role in short yardage situations.

Re: Why did we trade for duckett?

Season is still early. His role will increase as weeks go on, trust me. Get him to learn our system and next thing you know, we have our Byner & Riggs again! Can you imagine if we had a Sellers in 91 in front of them 2?

Re: Why did we trade for duckett?

duckett is big, but he's also surprisingly fast. I'd bet he'll have a role (unless they're trying to hold him out to get an extension for next year... but honestly, i don't see that happening).

Re: Why did we trade for duckett?

I think you are asking the wrong question....

The issue isn't why we traded for TJ. Break it down and we got great value.

The issue is, why aren't we using him. There have been three plays so far this season where it has been 3rd and short and he hasn't been in the game.

good point. obviously same line of reasoning applies to mr. cooley. I can only assume that they will use them soon.

This offense has the potential to explode. I'm excited.

Re: Why did we trade for duckett?

why not have him in on short yardage? less beating for portis, and duckett ,in my opinion, is a way better option than betts

Re: Why did we trade for duckett?

After Rock's fumble that was returned for a TD last week (before a penalty called it back) I don't think we'll see him carry the ball again this year. With Portis healthy Betts can go back to kickoff duty and Rock may be inactive for a few weeks depending on matchups. Duckett will make his prescence felt sooner or later.

Y'all need to look beyond this year. Next year, Portis' salary will be more than double to $7M+ and we will have to cut or trade him. Then TJ will be our feature back. It's the TVRB (Time Value of Running Backs).
