Canidate would be a nice pick up especially if you are looking to upgrade the quality depth at RB. He is a good receiver out of the back field.

Wasn't he a 1st round pick at one time? That is hard to believe.

Just goes to reinforce what we all know about the talent in the NFL...highly touted draft picks for a variety of reasons aren't the lock that we think they are and it goes to show how deep the talent pool in the NFL actually is.

One thing about Trung...he is still a pretty good athlete but he just doesn't have the physicality to be a goto workhorse back. He is a pretty legit as a change of pace or passing situation RB and that's about it. I think we have some pretty good options at RB with DD and Hollings so it will probably be unlikely at best that we would give him a sniff.

He would be a good pickup and then maybe we could release Wells. That guy was crying about getting drafted in the 4th round. He should have went in the 7th . DD was a 4th rounder and Wells cant hold a candle to him. But Candidate would give us a lot of versatility at RB.

DD and Hollings are both small shifty runners with good pass catching ability...sounds a lot like Trung. Not sure how much versatility he would add to that stable. If he was a bruiser that could pancake a linebacker or get go for the tough inside yards I would tend to agree with you. The power roll was why we picked up Wells, it would make sense to go for a complimentary skill set to go with DD and Hollings. I think that we will see Jarrod Baxter will start filling the short yardage role this year based on the need for a power inside runner.
