Yes we picked up Beanie Wells, what about the free agent market at RB?

Now we all know Edge left and wasn't happy with his situation here. Now this leaves us with Hightower who had 1 100 yard rushing game "against the Rams" and averaged just under 3 yards per carry and a rookie that everyone is falling in love with Chris "Beanie" Wells. Besides these 2 we have Larod Stephens-Howling, Jason Wright, and Chris Vincent.

If it wasn't for Edge in the post season we would of had a tougher time becoming NFC champs. He was the all around back and veteran who provided the cards with a running game in the post season. Don't get me wrong Hightower was a touchdown machine last year, but Edge provided Hightower with his knowledge of the game and took him under his wing. Now that aspect is gone.

Here's a look at some veteran RB's available (of course I took Edge off of this list ) to tutor our young RB's and provide the Cards with depth at the position. Keep in mind Hightower's stats ( 143 attempts for 399 yards, 2.8 yards per carry, *10 TD's )

  • Warrick Dunn: 34 years old, 786 rush yards, 330 receiving yards last season
  • Ahman Green: 32 years old, 294 rush yards, 3 rushing touchdowns
  • Rudi Johnson: 29 years old, 237 rush yards, 1 rushing touchdown
  • Deuce McAllister: 30 years old, 418 rush yards, 5 rushing touchdowns
  • DeShaun Foster: 29 years old, 514 rushing yards, 1 touchdown
  • Chris Perry: 27 years old, 269 rushing yards, 2 rushing touchdowns
  • Michael Pittman: 33 years old, 320 rushing yards, 4 rushing touchdowns

    Whats your opinion are we set at RB with these young guys? Or should we bring in a vet to tudor these young guys and provide a bit more depth?
