If we don't go RB in 2nd, bring back Shady?

His career yards-per-carry is 4.5.  He had a 4.6 last year. 

 

He was benched by his HC for the playoffs for some nobody rookie.

 

When Andy Reid gives up on a player, it's absolutely over...

Bring back Shady?   I like it.   

 

Bring back Gore, too, to back him up.   

 

Maybe bring in Bronco Nagurski, too.  Good short yardage guy.  

I think OJ is available but that ankle tether might be a problem.

I'm not sure he would come back he was really looking forward to him & Gore working together & he was one that got on his soap box to bring Gore in then they let him walk which i think Shady with the better O line may have done better than Gore but we will never know !!

Yes,  he was inactive  in KC but they have a bunch of good backs and they don't need to run much with Mahomes.  I don't think Shady left on bad terms, just a money deal.  After Singeltary the cupboard is totally empty -  Wade, DiMarco, Yeldon.  I also think he would benefit from the upgraded line.  He had a bunch of turnstile blockers when he was here.     

Have you noticed that KC drafted a RB in the first round?

No.  He is too old and has slowed down.  I'll take Moss or Dillion over him.

I want the Dillon battering ram

The dude is done. Give it a rest with the near obsession this board seems to have with bringing back old players well past their prime.

OP...why?  So we can let another washed up RB split time with our young emerging RB?  Makes zero sense. Zero. Then we would be back in the same boat next year. We need to get another young RB to form a duo with Singletary that we can control for the next four years. If we don’t get one in the second it doesn’t mean we can’t get one later in a deep draft. Good grief...

In addition to everything already stated why this is a bad idea, Shady also isn't a good compliment to him.  I'd prefer seeing a Derrick Henry type of power back.

What’s Fred Jackson doing these days? Maybe even Spiller.

I think Yeldon is a better back at this point in their careers.  I also don't think McCoy would agree that he left on good terms.

Why? Because every thought that pops into ones head MUST become a thread. 

 

are you new here?  ;)

I'd grab Dillon, Evans, or  Eno from Az state (may have spelled that wrong) if we miss out on the remainder of the "big 5"

I love the guy, but he is not a good compliment to what we already have. We need a straight ahead bruiser.

I don't get the obsession with adding a running back in round 2 who will carry the ball 5-6 times a game.

He didn't run straight ahead his last year in Buffalo because he always had somebody in his face in the backfield.  Only had a 100 carries last year.  So he didn't add a lot of mileage during his stint in KC.  Probably get him dirt cheap too.  There's not a lot of Derrick Henry's standing on the street corner.
