Haven't thought much about a trade though- sounds like he's fully recovered ? If so, would we find a better RB than him in the 2nd round this coming draft- maybe but probably not. Interesting thought 3toes.
Well, they just gave Fargis a nice big contract. They've got McFaddin, kinda makes sense. Are they going to pay three of them ?

If Al can turn a forth into a second, he would strut around for a week or two that's for sure. If the leg passes inspection, might be just enough to get us over the hump. At what point do you give up on Green ? If they had Bush on board wouldn't matter would it ?

Irons was a beast at Auburn. Sad to hear that an injury has sidelined him. I don't think damaged goods is the way to go. A broken leg can be recovered from but a bad acl tear is dicey. Why did denver cut Bell? Is he healthy? At this point the Texans should help Cedric Benson get cleaned up and sign him.

Someone mentioned anthony thomas? Is any gas left in his tank?

I've always thought he was less of a "one cut and go" back and more of a "just go" guy. I'm not saying he couldn't do this system, only that I have trouble getting a mental picture of him doing it.

Default Re: Running Back Avalability Thread.

based on the names being thrown around in this thread, I'll just go with what we have and hope for the best.

too early to push the panic button IMO. there will be some teams cutting some better names than these guys, unfortunately there will be teams like the Texans with injuries as well (ex. Ryan Grant) looking to pick up throwaways.

Somehow I think the Texans would take Dayne back before they ever took Benson. There's just too much "baggage" now with Benson. JMHO!

While former UT Football players seem to have the ability to make criminal cases in Travis County "Go Away"... I think Benson would still be looking at a suspension from the NFL even if the cases were dismissed.

M.Bush broke his leg in his final season in college. He was not healthy his rookie year as a result was IR'd all last year. He is now damn near 2 years removed from that broken leg, which was pretty bad if I remember correctly. The guy had stooopid game. If he's healthy he would be pretty good. There is obviously ZERO chance he will start in OAK and a minute chance he can contribute at RB.

I like Bush!

LOL.

Gonna' have to just wait until next year's draft for a chance at a RB.

And even then...I doubt Kubiak would blow up a first rounder on one.

Mendenhall, Felix Jones, and Chris Johnson were all available. Saw highlights of Felix Jones from the Cowboys/Chargers game...not too shabby, especially catching the ball and doing something with it afterwards.

We had TWO big needs--OL and RB--and could only get one of them this year. Kubiak chose to go with Duane Brown, and so the LT position seems to be settled, barring any injury (please help us, Lord).

We've always griped about getting a better Oline.

Isn't there a Dorsett running around somewhere? Tony's kid?

Oh well, in three years we can get Sam McGuffie.

I like the Bush idea. I had forgotten all about him. I am thinking that we might be able to get him for a 3rd, considering they have McFadden and Fargas.

If he passes a physical and Kubiak/Gibbs think he runs fine and fits the team, I'd spend a 3rd on him. But I'm not sure what the asking price would be from Oakland, I'm thinking they'd want a 2nd- but who knows. Even though they have Fargas and McFadden, I think they'd be smart to keep Bush in there.

I'd be all for taking Michael Bush if he is fully healthy. The Raiders don't exactly need him with Fargas and Mcfadden. If healthy Bush has a lot of upside.
