Chris Johnson could be holding out Johnson has been one of the top running backs in the league, but he might be looking for a big pay day. I’m generally against players holding out, but in the case of running backs I always give them a little more leeway. Running backs are not usually long for the N.F.L., so if a running back is largely out preforming his contract, I’m all right with it sometimes. Still it’s an unfortunate position for the Titans.
Reggie Bush could be heading to the San Diego Chargers,
“I know there has been some speculation that Bush could resurface in his hometown of San Diego, especially with Darren Sproles likely leaving as a free agent”.
Though Bill Willamson finds that to be unlikely. Reggie Bush is not as good as you would hope for a number two overall pick, but I think that he’s often under-appreciated. He will bring a whole new dynamic to whatever team he is on next. The San Diego Chargers would be a nice fit. I think he could also be an excellent fit on a team like the Colts (though that’ll never happen), the Patriots (again probably won’t happen). I’d also think he could bring something useful to the Dolphins who are desperate for speed.
Speaking of Dolphins and potential free agent running backs: The Miami Herald brings up the option of Ahmad Bradshaw.
Sparano said the team’s thinking before the draft was “we want to not have two of the same” type of running backs. But after drafting a big back in Daniel Thomas, Sparano said, “I don’t know that we’re going to have that option. There’s a chance you could have two of the same again. And that’s OK. Whether that’s having Ricky Williams or Ronnie Brown, or getting someone else, that remains to be seen.” Beyond DeAngelo Williams, Ahmad Bradshaw is among others expected to be on Miami’s radar.
Brandon Lloyd says Tim Tebow is improving:
Percy Harvin has been excellent on the field when he’s had the chance to play. On special teams as a Wr as a scat-back type of player. His presence could really help out Christan Ponder’s development, hopefully he can stay healthy all year this year.
Speculation continues that the Buffalo Bills could be heading to L.A. I hope that they don’t. Despite the teams recent performance, the fan base has remained very loyal and supportive. Despite being in an area that is seeing a lot of unemployment fans optimism continues to remain high. If you’re a Bills fan make sure to check out buffalowdown.com. Who has been following this story.
