    instead of talking about picking up other teams trash every day round here we need to get involved in the deangelo williams bidding if there is gonna be free agency...

    you wanna add speed and homerun hitting ability at rb..this my friends is the definition...

    I am still not intersted! He is injury prone big time. Draft Ingram or Hunter and be done with it already.

    healthy this kids a weapon and he wouldn't require us using a high pick on a rb ...anyways..you guys carry on with the sidney rice pipe dream like he's gonna get way from minnesota or the whining over incog likely not being resigned...like thats any loss at all

    I have no desire for Rice. I like our receiver core. I rather have the chance to get Greenway from the Viks. I like Rice, don't get me wrong but I tend to think this team needs a young rb in the draft rather then another wr. I feel we need a speedy back and granted Williams is that, I rather have Ingram or Hunter to go w/ Brown rather then Ricky back in 2011. I think letting Brown go for nothing would be a mistake.

    Greenway was slapped with the franchise tag so forget him.

    Capable RBs can be found in the mid to late rounds and have short careers. Williams is injury prone as is, even having split time his entire career.

    i love how you guys think running backs with deangelo williams like talents grow on trees...that is so bogus...the injury stuff is a valid concern no doubt...it has to be examined...but the find guys anywhere stuff is quite played out

    I like Bradshaw out of any FA HBs, he's 24 and last season seemed to breakout. Only caution is he fumbles a bit like Ricky. But I think he'll be healthier than Williams and productivity for 16 games is always better than that of 6. I'll now get flamed for disagreeing with the TC, oh well.

    I'm all for Deangelo and drafting a rb in the mid-rounds. Insane play making abilty, injury concern sure but really what rb isn't.

    the giants have made it clear that signing bradshaw is a top priority.... personally, i young running back with two broken wheels and a case of fumblitis isnt high up on my list.

    Deangelo has been an injury concern no doubt, but if you sign Deangelo (a proven player in this league), we can forget about drafting a RB with one of our high picks (usually doesnt work out).

    And instead focus on rebuilding our interior Oline and picking up some skill positions on offense through the draft.

    if you brought in deangelo then you use a mid to late pick on a downhill power guy...i could even see them putting hilliard in that downhill role but he doesn't have much wiggle...

    plus like we have said it frees up your top picks for other needs...

    DeAngelo Williams will be 28 in April. Running backs at 28 don't have much more of a shelf life (case and point, Ronnie Brown), and DeAngelo is looking to get paid. He'll want a five-year deal with megabucks when we should be realistically looking at two to three years of good productivity, if even that much. Knowing how much luck the Dolphins have, we will sign him and he will have a catastrophic knee injury, Yatil Green-style, and will never play a down for us.

    Ronnie brown never had very much to begin with.... never had a 1,000 yard season, so its not quite comparing apples to apples.
    Deangelo will be 28, and the "vaunted 30" for running backs is still a few years away, and for the better part of his career he has been in nearly a 50/50 time share, so the mileage isnt the same as those running backs who hit 30 and crashed.

    He is a significant upgrade at the position, and with the money issue, if we draft ingram at 15 (hopefully not), i would find it hard to imagine he wouldnt be getting the same amount of dollars, and he wouldnt have even set foot on an NFL field yet.

    give me the proven player.

    So basically have 3 rb's on the team that do what exactly? Why waste another late rd pick on a rb that will only return kickoffs or punt returns. I want no part of Ricky on this team. Brown still has a lot of value.

    If he's healthy I would love to bring him in because he would add great speed and explosiveness to our backfield.

    i wont touch this at all. Getting up in age, would want big money, and RB don't do too well after a few years.

    There is only one veteran RB that I would go after, and that's Ahmad Bradshaw.

    I don't know where you're getting 3 rb's from. I'm assuming Ronnie won't be re-signed.

    Also, Ricky has and always will be better than Ronnie. It's time to move on from him.

    D.Williams automatically makes Henne or any rookie QB better. His value would be great for this team as would a stud LG and beter C play.

    I think Brown doesn't have as much value as some here seem to think, injury issues and has had 1 1000 yards season in the pros. Although I do agree with the fact Kaley is hot

    I like Deangelo Williams with Ronnie. Keep Hilliard. Draft a scat back (change of pace). Let Cobbs go.

    Sign a few RBs as FAs and stock on the PS.

    I love how people complain about D. Williams getting injured in Carolina... Look back on ALL OF THEIR BACKS... They all get injured! Shouldn't this tell you something? D Will? J Stewart? Mike Goodson? Before that they had that one year when they were down to their 2nd string FB as their starting RB... Hoover I think?!

    I would take De'Angelo Williams if he came cheap, and still draft Ingram, and keep Ricky as well. Get rid of Ronnie, I have never been impressed with him from jump street.

    The Panthers are placing a restricted tag on Williams, so he is going to require compensation to sign. I wonder if Miami will restrict Soliai.

    Anymore so than Ronnie Brown? They kid is a talented back and has proved it, when healthy.
    What makes him any different then RB?
    Both have unlimited potential and can be top 5 backs, if they stay off IR.
    If we have a chance to go at him, it gives us more options in the Draft.

    That's what happens when you consistently rely on the running game...
    I swear those guys pound the rock like 70% of the time, and that was with Daylight come and you gotta Delhome.
    Last year they were working with the likes of Jimmy cLOSSen and co. Giving them that much more reason to rely on the ground attack.
