    My thoughts are that I'm not sure why it's funny...

    Anyone that buys houses for single mothers is a great guy in my book. Football-wise, he should consider retirement. 11 years as an undersized RB is a hell of a run.

    Warrick Dunn is a great person and a true role model in the NFL. I wish him nothing but the best, which includes NOT going to Denver, Oakland, KC, or NE.

    I'm not sure he'd go for that considering he's been a starter his entire career in numerous different places

    But if he's up for it on the cheap, why not?

    Tough to believe this guy has 10,000+ rushing yards in his career.

    I would hope most of us would, he's a great back, but I think he still wants to start, and that ain't happening here.

    yeah no kidding, if he wanted to be backup he could've stayed in Alanta.... what's worse getting replaced by a backup, or replacing that very backup on the team he came from?

    I still think you bring in RBs Musa Smith (Balt) or T.J. Duckett from Detroit. Dunn might be "Done" as far as I'm concerned. That's why ATL got the Burner. Also, A.J. will draft a brusing RB in the draft as well since it's a deep RB draft. Question is this: What if Jonathan Stewart, RB from Oregan is still on the board when we pick??????:icon_huh:

    He's got to be thinking retirement within the next few seasons and I'm sure he'd like to go out with a ring. Chargers would give him a good chance of making that happen.

    I say we should contact him and see if he'll agree to a 1-2 year contract. Tomlinson, Dunn, and Sproles. I like the sound of that!!! :yes:

    ...He certainly has the multiple skills (running, receiving) to fit in here as a reserve. I doubt anyone would sign him as a feature back anyway so why not in Boltville as a back-up? It is a possibility if it wouldn't cost too much. He'd be insurance anyway in case LT or Sproles goes down. We still need a bruiser from free agency or the draft though.

    That's what I was thinking but you brought up a good point... Neither LT or Sproles are bruisers. Dunn isn't either.
    Though I like Dunn, it might not be such a good idea after all.

    I watched way to much of Duckett while in Detroit


    maybe if we were going to run the same offense we did under Schott. But Norv doesn't need a big bruising RB/FB

    Nothing, I hope. We need fat boys more and can find a thick back on the second day. There will probably be some more salary trimming before the draft as well.

    Which way you going RC, O-Line or D-Line in the draft? I'll go with line. I want D-Line though, someone to get after the QB and stop the run. That's why I liked a guy like Kentwan Balmer. If not him, someone that can replace Jamal and spell Castillo who is always getting hurt.

    It depends on whose on the board. Balmer would be a good option, but he could be gone by our pick. We could use some help on both sides of the ball, so if I was picking I'd take which ever player was higher on list, but I would probably lean toward defense.

    Because we have Sproles and they weigh about the same....give or take a couple lbs.

    We need a bigger RB.

    I'm not sure Norv and AJ want another big back. It seemed like they chose not use Lo and MT as much last year.

    Well what can Neal do other than block? I winced everytime they threw him a swing pass. He isnt a running type of RB at all. He was a blocker and Norv is said to want to go to a more spread/downfield attack which means more WR sets so im guessing thats why he was going to give Neal a reduced role.

    Turner was underused IMO. Dont know if his lack of carries had anything to do with him being a bigger RB because he had good speed. Every team needs a RB with good size to change it up and sock em in the mouth.

    Sure, you could be right but why would we want two 185 lb RB's?

    I just looked at MTs stats from last year and to my surprise he had 9 less carries than the year before! So I guess as usual my argument doesn't hold up! :lol::lol::lol:

    I agree though, we need another big back just to soften up the D.

    Good luck to Dunn. Class act with a lot of heart. :tup:

    Don't see him hear - too close to Sproles' size with way more wear on the tires.

    We can find one of those in the low rounds or even as an FA. Naanee can probably do some of that and Manu can play H.
