    Ben Tate will be toting the rock for Cleveland.
    Good move by the Browns at "only" 2 years 6.2 mil.

    I agree with cheap. Has to be cap friendly nor have lot of dead money in future years. I like an incentive laden contract.

    I've watched a few Titan games last yr. Their OL was atrocious. If you think ours was bad...try their OL. Furthermore, he was the ONLY threat Titans has. Every team knows that you stop CJ you win the game. They have no legitamate NFL QB.

    I agree he was not the CJ of 3 yrs ago but he is not Eddie George.

    I think he has tread on his tires and with out OL and offensive weapons this is mutually beneficial.

    I think CJ has juice left Murray and CJ would be a great duo

    If we picked up CJ2K maybe ESPN would give us a higher FA ranking.

    I agree on the thread on tires part. He played a full 16 game season and his last tow games last year were two of his better games all year. Because he played hurt much of last year, I would be a bit worried about him going forward. But then again, maybe playing hurt had something to do with his sub-par season.

    If the Jets do not get him, I would expect Fisher to go after him. That would make their team speed that much greater and help them compete better in that brutal division.

    He played hurt and they went to a man blocking scheme which made him take more hits.

    ESPN just listed simple odds on where he might go and had "low" odds for all teams except the Jets and Rams.
    They only totally ruled out a few teams but gave low odds all around in general.
    Of ocurse, all it takes is one team.

    BTW, they couldn't help gigging Dallas again by saying how they passed on Johnson in 2008 to take Felix Jones.

    Both ESPN and NFLN love to use the Cowboys for ratings. One of the lead ins on NFL AM today was should the Cowboys still be Americas Team. They used it a few time this week for Total Access as well.

    By far more than any other position, RBs tend to peak the earliest in their careers. Most of them have their best years within their 1st three years of being drafted. This makes them the perfect position to get on a 4 year rookie deal. Drafting backs is the way to go.
    I'm actually happy for CJ, the he at least got paid high dollars for a couple of seasons. Problem is, he basically got paid mostly for what he had given them already. I sure can see why the Titans cut him loose after a coupe of years into that contract.

    I bet most of us could not count on one hand how many FA running backs have made huge impacts on their new teams in the last 20 years.

    It would be nice irony having to sign the RB Garrett did not want to sign the one Phillips wanted.

    The Rams are a likely landing spot with the HC connection. I don't know why ESPN would giggle at the Cowboys taking Felix Jones over Chris Johnson when the Stealers did the same thing with Rashard Mendenhall. Actually when you look at the 1st round RB's there isn't a lot to get excited about. You have Darren McFadden in OAK, Jonathan Stewart in CAR, then Jones, Mendenhall and Johnson. 2nd round RB's that year were Matt Forte and Ray Rice. KC drafted Jamaal Charles in the 3rd round at 73.

    Why do you act like CJ2K has one foot in the retirement home? He can still play. His oline was crap the last few years in Tennessee and he hasn't had a QB to keep the defense honest. HIm with Demarco would be lethal.
