Which players gets the carries DJ won't get?

There is a continuing conversation about the Arizona Cardinals and their running backs.

Outside of David Johnson, we really don't know much.

Kerwynn Williams, Elijhaa Penny, Andre Ellington, T.J. Logan and someone named James Summers are the players filling out the depth chart behind DJ.

When you read those names aloud… it doesn't exactly inspire confidence.

However, everyone starts somewhere, but more importantly, bringing in a veteran now may be too expensive.

That doesn't mean they won't bring in someone with experience later, when money is more defined and a player is usually willing to take less, but not bringing in a veteran also allows these young guys to take all the non David Johnson reps over the summer.

That begs the question: Who gets the second most carries on the Arizona Cardinals in 2017?

Is that player on the roster right now?

Do you see a veteran being picked up and brought in?
