add in his low salary demands and the fact that he'd be a capable, experienced backup...another poor roster move in my opinion.
But it's much easier to simply say he didn't have moves and fell down too often, so CUT HIM and Run him out of town...yeah, that makes us a better team overnight.
Oh well...it won't hurt us in the long run because he wasn't a starting caliber RB, but I think he could have helped our depth and special teams.
I kinda agree Wayne. But ultimately I don't think it will hurt the team too much. I think Hambrick is a much better run blocker and pass blocker than Anderson.
I would have been cool going into the season with Martin, Anderson, Hambrick, Jones and Cason as the backs. They could have split the fullback duties between Ham and Martin since Anderson couldn't block worth a dime he could back up Jones.
