    I would rather spend our 2nd on defense or interior OL, and grab a Barber or perhaps a McFadden if the price is right.

    I know what you get with Barber and he could be a great solution but McFadden is more of an enigma. Insane talent and has some of the tools that you want in a RB, but I just question his love for the game and his toughness. His saving grace is that he plays for the Raiders, and a lot of players are going to look like crap when they play for the Raiders.

    If we could get McFadden for a 5th Rounder or Barber for a 4th, I would do the deal. Would have probably preferred LT, Taylor, or Jones in FA though. Why did we do nothing in Free Agency? It really is affecting our ability to improve through the draft rather than just stopping the bleeding through the draft.

    I'd take McFadden if the price was right ... why ... he was the original wildcat . He offers you a ton of options unfortunatly he has skinny legs and is fairly tall for a RB .

    I'd be interested in Maroney, if his head is straight. He has outstanding talent, but since he landed in Belicheck's doghouse, he hasn't been able to show it. A few years on the bench might have cleared his head, though, and you ought to be able to get him fairly cheap.

    Where's the source.

    I'll take Barber or White and then pick up another back in the 5th.
