Behind Portis? I expect him to see a lot of practice squad time.

We signed him because there was interest by other teams. He'll have the opportunity to shine in pre-season.

As long as Clinton Portis is healthy, Sultan will be the Babe Laufenberg of the 21st Century.

Anyone who would play Sultan over a healthy Portis is smoking something that is definitely a controlled substance.

Sultan is probably going to be the back-ups back-up.

??? Am I the only one here that watched Sultan last preseason and some in college. The guy looked like a great back, I was rooting for him to start all last year. Now this year, theres no way he should touch the ball unless Portis just broke an 80 yard run and is winded. But he should atleast be backup. WE should keep him and his tiny salary, play him as backup and get somethign for betts.

I agree, SKINSnCANES. Sultan is a talented back, and plays for the NFL equivalent of peanuts ($305,000). I get the impression that he was a victim of front office politics last season, and with a new coaching staff in place, he should have a prime opportunity to prove himself. I don't think the team's prior investments in Ladell Betts or Trung Canidate are going to grant those players any special consideration, though Chad Morton will probably get some significant time as a role player-- based on his talent as a receiver out of the backfield. It should be a wide-open race among Betts, Canidate and McCullough for the primary backup job behind Portis.

I personally think Sultan could blossom into a wonderful back, but I don't see him getting much playtime. I see Morton and Rock being our two primary switchup backs, but McCullough is definitly someone I wanna keep around!

Betts, Trung, Sultan, Morton, Rock...thats five back up running backs. Some of them are going to be gone. Who do you guys think will still be here. Morton will be here as a return man, and a situational thing. Cartright could play the back on punts, he could be a threat there. Rock technically could play some fullback I guess. I think Trung will be gone, and Betts will have to beat out McCullah. Neither cost much money but they might need the roster space.

Portis, Betts, Sultan, Morton, Rock, and Trung...is Simon still on the roster too? It depends on how many RB's will they keep...

The only locks are Portis, and Morton (for kick returns). The rest will have to fight it out in camp. I like most people, see Trung being gone, and maybe Simon too (don't know much about him), but really I like the other three, so whoever plays best and wins the back-up job is fine with me.
Betts is your more traditional RB, size-wise, plus he has shown flashes of what he could do, if he can just stay healthy.
Rock, well, he's a rock...compact and tough. Great guy to have on your team.
Sultan seems to be like the typical unknown guy that could come out of nowhere and do very well if given the opportunity...the question is, now that we have an all-pro RB Portis that's about the same size, do we need a guy like that (barring injuries)? Seems to be a potential J. Lewis/ P. Holmes type of situation where they have the franchise back, so the other guys goes on to succeed somewhere else. They could also put him on the practice squad if they need roster space...just in case.

i was just wondering, is there any chance rock has the required skills to play h-back? i honestly can't remember how well he catches but he's a little spark plug who can get u decent gains most of the time. even if he can't i think hes a lock for the team. candidate is gonna be gone, simons gone i already i believe, betts has the frame and skills i think gibbs likes in a rb so he's most likely the backup, but i also think mcullough might have the chance to steal the backup job this summer. and then again it could be someone we don't even have on the roster yet 2.

I think the problem with Rock playing H-back is his size. He's solid as a rock (pun intended!), but is too short....maybe he'd play it on occasion, but probably not as the starter or main back-up. In Gibbs system, he'd probably be better suited as a RB.
