The team already established that Denard was getting 10-15 touches a game. They must believe that he's better.

And why all the love for Owens as a running back? In his 7 year career, he has less than 300 yards rushing, with over 2/3 of that coming in one year because he was pretty much the only RB on the roster at that point. He's almost a full year older than MJD, and he too is coming off an injury that sidelined him in week 17.

He's been a phenominal special teams player for us, but I don't get the love for him as a RB when for 6 years of his career, no one ever thought "we should let him have more than 2 carries a season." He wasn't going to get more than 1 carry a game this year, if that. He's not a special RB or someone who you need to get touches. He would have been behind MJD, Denard and Forsett, just like he's always been behind 3-4 RBs on the depth chart.

we werent going to take the ball out of MJD's hand

Yea Owens isnt special but it isnt like Forsett is special either. Owens is an elite STer and our STs will be even worse now bc he is gone

But Forsett is still better.

I get the part about his special teams capability. As a RB though, I don't get the outrage.

I feel like there were a bunch of other candidates to be released before montell, who's a solid FB, RB, and a beastly special teams player. Kind of disappointing.
