He'll be a free agent next year, what do you think we should do with him?

Honestly I think it's time for us to move on from DMC and I've always liked Goodson so I want him to be resigned to a reasonable deal. I'd still like to get a RB late in the draft but Mike has been solid, has good vision, patience, and his "fumbling issue", which really wasn't that bad, hasn't been a problem.

I think most of us love DMac and hate what's happened to him but if we could get a second from a team I don't think there's many who wouldn't jump on it. Atlanta could lose Turner and with their Power scheme he could really shine there. Don't know if they'd give up that much for an injury prone RB though.

I'm ready to move on from DMC too. The staff seems to like Goodson so I expect him to be back next season with a reasonable deal.

Ya I was thinking ATL is a good fit as well.

I'd offer Goodson a deal, but not starters money as I'd be getting another RB if we lost McFadden. I think Goodson will fit PBS or Power blocking scheme so he makes sense for rotation and depth regardless of what we do with DMC

Bring Goodson back. I like what I have seen from him.

Honestly I woudlnt be upset either way with the guy. RB like him are a dime a dozen in this league that can be had in rounds 3-5. And seeing how we are intent upon sticking with a ZBS, RB's are moer undervalued.

Goodson should be brought back for a market value contract. However, durability concerns and fumble exposure prevent Goodson from being a feature back. I'm more concerned about 3rd sting RB. I'm comfortable with DMC, Goodson & Stewart and an UDFA RB on the practice squad (Hopefully Marcus Coker) that will ultimately be called up as DMC and Goodson lack durability.

Guy got off to a rough start in preseason fumbling the ball. Looked completely different once he got comfortable in the offense and got healthy. Relying on him to be the starter seems kinda iffy. Definitely should be back along with Jeremy Stewart.
