Not to forget Torain who they drafted and are pretty high on, but he has to have surgery on his elbow and will be out, maybe even for the season. One of my very good friends is a die hard Broncos fan, which has been useful since we get players from them all the time. Its a little up in the air as of now who is the RB who may fall out in Denver, maybe Hall maybe Alridge.

On another note, Lorenzo Booker looked really good last night for Philly in bad conditions, he is another Slaton type player, but has more experience.

How about Turk for the starting RB spot? 15 yards on 1 carry, not too shabby...

I hope AA falls and the Texans pick him up.

Nick Goings is a serviceable back that has some experience. With Stewart and Williams there, you never know.

No, El Tejano was just saying that the Panthers have Jonathon Stewart and DeAngelo Williams and that's a pretty full backfield. Goings might end up the odd man out.

I liked Hall, I wouldn't mind having him. That said, Aldridge will most likely end up in their practice squad.

Which would be good for us, since we'd be able to sign him off of that if Kubes and Smith wanted to.

I like Hall as well. I mentioned him a while back, and many thought I was crazy.

Given that he's only played in one preseason game and has yet to run with the first-teamers, let's wait and see what Steve Slaton can do before we go looking for other teams's scrubs to fill a need.

When he got his chances to play last year, he didn't look like a scrub at all. He looked really good. He had the same type of burst as Selvin Young but a little more power. He's played with first teamers plenty of times and played well.
