    CB was rated like 34th in NFL in rush success rate. Although I agree he should be a good 3rd down back, so far he has not actually been a good 3rd down back.

    I'm not sure if it'll be that soon. But, he was drafted for a reason. And, it probably wasn't to back-up Chris Brown.

    So, trading Brown is probably just a matter of time.

    I think Brown is a good 3rd down back, as long as that's not 3rd and short with him running. He's good at blocking, and has success at the draws. I think his hands are so-so, but hey, can you have it all? Of yeah, Ladanian Tomilinson :lol:

    Wait till camp is over, if LW looks good along with Henry and one other, then trade him.

    I'd wait until midseason as well to do it, but I don't know if they will reach an agreement. I'd probably offer him something with the numbers he wants, escalating on the back end with some reasonable incentives in the first two years. White is going to be relatively inexpensive, unless he hits his incentives, but I think it would be worthwhile to have two backs scrappin on the field to reach 11-1200 yards a season or whatever.

    Brown is really only a good 3rd down back when it's 3rd and long
    I see LD being the guy to get the 3rd and short / goalline

    Chris is better for 2nd and 15 on a draw

    I think White will prove to us he can be a starting back perhaps later on in the season though, but I believe that this year for Brown is his last chance to prove to other teams that he's got what it takes.
