Seems like now he's trying to whatever he can to help this team out. Good article imo. What do you guys think now? I know I wanted to trade him asap, but I think we should give him some reps vs the Cardinals and see what he's made of. And just deactivate either Carey, Fox, or Riddick. Also see if he'll lay ST, like Bell. He was ranked by Rivals as one of the country's 30 best tailbacks coming out Centennial High School in Champaign, Ill. He became an All-American by his junior season at Illinois, rewriting the school's record book for a reason. What do you guys think still? Trade? Another Shot?

I he earns his PT then he'll get it. We don't get to see what goes on in practice so we can't really tell if he's earned it or not.

I've always liked Leshoure and I've stuck up for him a lot last offseason, but as the saying goes, "if it ain't broke, don't fix it." Bush and Bell were a pretty dominant duo on Sunday (283 yards and three TDs) so it's hard to justify mixing it up too much. Maybe he will see some playing time against some of the more undersized teams in the league where his power might be more of an asset, but I don't really think the Cardinals are one of those teams.

Injuries happen, especially at the RB position. Leshoure will likely get carries at some point this season, and his ability to capitalize on those carries will determine his role with this team going forward.

He needs playing time if we want to even think about trading him.. I would be calling the Giants right about now and try to package something.. I don't understand why wait.

Are they allowed to trade damaged goods? I'd look at Stevie Brown

Why get another safety with knee injuries?

His condition isn't degenerative, so far as I know.

Yeah but the fact he's hurt...and been on four different teams in four years...he's obviously not that good...and was cut from crap teams...let me guess you like his 8 INT..

Do you dislike his 8 INT?

He graded out pretty well last year minus a few games.

In his rookie year, he graded out pretty average... not bad for a 7th rounder who got quite a bit of run. He didn't play a lot in 2011.

Just trying to think of a player-for-player that might work as I don't think we can get a decent pick for LeShoure.

EDIT: Meh, he signed a RFA tender this year anyway, so no point.
