Hes not the runner that time forgot. He is effing old by RB standards, he has ALWAYS been fragile (only played 70% of games since drafted) and now he is worn down and fragile to boot. Yes he will probably have a couple of highlight worthy games, maybe even close in on 200 yards in a game once but the "AP carries team to playoffs" days are gone. He is 32, he'll be half way to 33 by the time the season starts. He'll be lining up against folks that are a DECADE younger than him in some cases. Its not about how much is left in his tank, its about how big his tank is now.

I think I have tank envy...
I've told people a million times not to exaggerate!
