I'm thinking a trade or FA is most likely. I think one of the Panthers backs will be let go, Darren McFadden will likely be on the market, and I've just read Beanie Wells will likely be out in Arizona as well.

Beanie Wells is Shonn Greene, but more injury prone.

Wells is a lot more talented. I think he could be a decent player. He'd be a cheap option too.

Uh, a lot more talented? Look at career numbers
Beanie's Numbers in 4 years: 625 carries for 2471 yards (4.0 avg.) for 24 TD's
Greene's Numbers in 4 years: 803 carries for 3349 yards (4.2 avg.) for 18 TD's

Beanie has more TD's, but is injury prone and Greene averages more yards per carry

Hardly more talented. Very similar numbers and hardly an upgrade considering Beanie's injury prone.

Not interested in Beanie Wells. I'd like us to take Lattimore as I could see him having a similar arc to Michael Bush who's a good back but we couldn't rely on him next year at all.

I'm fine with Mendenhall if he comes cheap, but I really want a more dynamic talent at RB. Someone who can consistently be a threat to catch or run the ball on any down. McFadden would be lovely, but idk if we can trade for him at this point...or if I want us to

No expensive FA. I would rather just move to a committee and every year or two draft a RB in the 3rd/4th/5th and let them play their rookie contract and let them go.

At the top of my list is McFadden. I hope we can make a move for him. But I would be fine with mendenhall.

I'm convinced either Pierre Thomas, Chris Ivory or Darren Sproles could be moved. Could any of them 3 be targets.

Greene / Sproles would be pretty solid

McFadden's great when he stays healthy. The issue is that the price tag probably won't be worth the health-risk

I don't think sproles will go anywhere, but if so, it would be Sproles and Powell because Greene is an FA

Yeah thats true. It really depends. No one expected Brandon Marshall to be traded for two 3rd round picks (not from same draft) , that was a great deal for Chicago. So I hope we could get something like that or better.
