I feel the same way about his time here and think he deserves a shot in camp to say the least.

I've watched a few of this past season's games numerous times (lol) and there were way too many yards left on the field on his runs.

Just wanted to reiterate my thoughts on Dayne.

Granted, the only back on our roster who doesn't have some major injury history to my knowledge is Walker. Hopefully between the 4 of them we can put together a healthy season. Hell, they might be able to keep up with Dayne on crutches anyways.

He might be tough to bring down, but he doesn't break a whole lot of tackles. He is a big guy, but once contact is initiated he's usually down right there or he might fall forward and get a yard. He won't lose you many yards, but unless the other teams defense is poor against the run, then he's not getting more than 50 - 70 yards even on 20+ carries.

I don't mind seeing him run the ball occasionally, but he's taken pretty much the full load for the second half of the last 2 seasons. That pretty much means our running game is in shambles.
