He got a lot better later in the year, but breaking tackles isn't one of his strengths.

Offseason Goal: Draft durable, tough, intelligent offensive lineman who are dependable technicians and avoid penalties aka drive killers.

who would we replace him with anyway? He's a decent veteran RB.

Good for him. He's not a terrible back and he will be a good backup for Cook.

I'm a little surprised he agreed to it but I'm glad he did.

I am really surprised. I thought he would really test the waters to get close to what he was getting with the vikes. Should be a good move.

Kids a pros pro. I’ve been talking to him a bit lately just reconnecting from HS. He’s all about winning. Not money. He’s always been a great person. Glad he stayed on my favorite team. I’m actually playing in a golf tourney this summer that he is hosting in Syracuse

Cool. Shouldn't prohibit them from taking a guy in the later rounds.

Agreed. I wouldnt sleep on Mack Brown. He was a preseason all star (granted it doesnt carry a ton of weight) but he's got some potential

I liked Ballage, especially to replace Murray. Now, I'm guessing they'll be looking for a pass catching guy to replace McKinnon.
