    Vet FA runningbacks...

    Not a lot to choose from here. Assuming we don't want to pay out the big bucks for the top guys there is not a lot out there. For starters we need a back that can compliment brown. A micheal bennett or jr redmond offer us nothing in that regard. Many of the vet Fa are old guys with little value like a moe williams or antawin smith. You have the jouneyman back anthony thomas who couldn't beat out smith for the #2 spot in new orleans. What about ron dayne? Is he the answer? He does compliment brown and still has some play left in him.

    The 2 guys that come to mind for me are najeh davenport and labrandon toefield both big backs who have shown some ability. Both compliment brown and both would be real cheap. Davenport would be the better option but he is coming off a quad(thigh) injury. Shouldn't effect him in 2006 but you never know.

    Another issue with these free agents is that some will not be available. The packers are going to keep either davenport or ahman green. The ravens will either sign jamal lewis or chester taylor. If they keep lewis(not expected) then taylor would be an interesting option.

    As you guys can see there are few lost cost options better than just keeping travis henry. By the way lists of free agent players can be found on theredzone.org

    Good info to have. I could live with Toefield, Davenport or possibly even Dayne. It all depends on what Henry is willing to play for.
