I won't be in favor of the move until I see what Julius Jones, Richie Anderson and ReShard Lee (?) have to offer as a committee.
George, with over 2700 attempts and 10000 yards, has taken a beating as the Titans workhorse during his eight seasons with the club.
I just don't see the point in adding him to the mix before seeing what the others have to offer.
George does appear interested in joining the team and that may make it easier to negotiate a contract, but would he endorse his role of a mentor/back-up?
There is no position in the league where it's easier to get solid production from young players, I want to see Dallas' kiddies in action before stunting their growth by signing a warhorse.
Bickerstaff's injury does raise some interest in a power, goaline back, but George will damand more money then I wanna give him. You could get an ufa that would do just as good of a job with 5-7 carries...
