    Possible RB for the Texans? I would stay away from him, but that's just me.

    absolutely...... I was a bit disappointed with him in NewYork. He just looked out of shape. But when he reported in Denver, he looked like he was ready to play, and he had a heck of a year.

    I figured Denver was going to be happy with Tatum & Mike Bell.... but I think it's odd for Denver to dump Dayne over preseason performance. They usually audition backs as the season goes on.

    So this will be uncharted Territory for them, with Tatum Bell being the only proven back as they go into the season.

    But anyone who picks up RonDayne is going to have a nice proven veteran Tailback. Especially if they run a zone blocking run game. Atlanta..... who lost Duckette, Washington who picked up Duckette (with concerns for Portis' health), and Houston who just put DD on IR...

    If you can't be successful running in the Broncos system, you have problems. That's almost as bad as Gaffney getting cut from the Eagles who are known to be weak at receiver.

    His problem is NOT ability. He's proven that in the recent past........That being said, he does not look like the same back that was there last year because he has been SEVERELY hobbled by his turf toe. Denver probably saw this as a problem that was not going to change any time soon ala Eddie George. I wouldn't expect Kubs to bring him in if this is the case........and Kubs should have some inside ear. We'll just have to see.
