    Would we ever find enough by cutting and letting a few of our own pending free agents go unsigned?

    This guy could be a monster wild card in BOBs offense, we could have our own version of Shane Veeren (albiet maybe slight bit healthier) as a massive weapon on offense.

    Also we need someone to replace Ben Tate's role. If not thru the draft I believe he could be the answer.

    This draft is too full of good running backs to go out and spend money on one when there is so much money already invested in Foster.

    But I wouldn't be mad if they got him...

    Give Teddy B an athletic TE, Dre, D-Hop, and Sproles to throw to? Love it

    I would rather him go to the Colts so Clowney can destroy him twice a year.

    Why would you want the Colts to have a weapon like that? We have enough trouble with TY Hilton

    How about the Jags? It would be pretty fun watching Clowney and Watt crush Bridgewater and Sproles in LA twice a year.

    Why? Is a 31 year old backup RB really what we need in FA?

    The Saints should cut Pierre Thomas instead.

    Almost as old, getting paid nearly 3 million.

    Any joe blow off the street could fill his shoes.

    Run forward 2 yards and fall down.

    Yeah, that's true, neither of those guys are likely to land within the division.

    one thing the texans lack is SPEED..our team has alot of long lanky guys in the skill positions none of them have great speed. keshawn martin might be the fastest on the team and he seems so slow when i watch him play. thats why i really want quick players like "ELDEMAN or SPROLES" they will help a young qb alot because no defender can stay in front of them without holding them.. i don't look at sproles as a running back he's more effective as a pass catcher

    A speed guy on the wrong side of 30 isn't exactly a smart investment.
