I think we could draft a RB in the 4th-5th with a very similar skill set to Duke. I do like him but a rookie will be much cheaper.

I don’t know he will be that much cheaper though, this is a secondary RB so I don’t think duke has a big price tag, but that’s also just my assumption.

His cap hits the next 3 are $3,050,000, $4,850,000, and $5,900,000.

I’d be feeling pretty phenomenal if our RB Group was Shady/Duke/Gore.

Then draft a late round pick on a RB who can develop.

 

Duke/gore/rookie 

 

having both McCoy and duke is a bit too much money in the RB

If you're keeping McCoy for another year to me a better option than Johnson would be draft 2nd to 3rd round rookie.   You could likely get as good production from a rookie as Johnson.  I think WR is one of the hardest and longest positions for rookies to develop at, where as RB is the fastest.

And Shady is off the books next year , we have about $18 million left in space this year after assumptions for contract #s that are not out yet and rookies

I dont think we can fully understand how horrible the o-line was. McCoy's production is 100% due to this. The front office obviously noticed as well totally revamping  the o-line.

I agree - I think Shady has a bounce back year. 

 

Which also makes me real interested to see how Bell does behind the Jets OL.   That OL was almost as bad as ours with their only offseason upgrade, so far, being Osemele at G.

Have to say, thought Ivory played better than Shady last year.  Hit the hole harder, got the positive yards.

I expected that because of the O line....if you have an O line that can actually run block/get out on screens...etc etc then Shady is the guy you want because he is a home run hitter

Never see any love for Murphy on these boards. I have no problem with him being a 3rd RB.

 

The level of play he brought with more exposure last year was not NFL quality, IMO.

Statistically I can’t imagine a scenario where he doesn’t improve from last year... but will he produce at top 5-10 level (I have my doubts).  

 

If there was an option to completely shed Shady’s money this year, I think Johnson can be just as productive as a pass catcher with Gore being the pound guy.

Agreed. The line really stunk the place up last season. Wood and Ritchie really carried the line before they retired The upgrades will help Shady get back to his old self and cut down on Allen's rushing attempts. The offense will be much better with the line upgrades

He's probably working out with Shady and Gore in Miami this offseason as well.

 

His contract bumps up a little next season but Shady comes off the books then too.

 

My guess is they just draft one though.

4.8 Yards per Carry in 2018

4.9 Yards per Carry in 2017

 

Not bad at all for RB#3
