Had Javon Ringer in for a visit too. Always liked him as a complementary guy and is a good receiver as well.

Tanner is the owner of a great 2.7 ypc in 56 career carries. Rolling Eyes

The 5 seconds that it took you to look that up on NFL.com would probably have been put to better use doing something else. He wouldnt be coming in here competing for Forte or anything. Its about the pass blocking and ST ability....turns out runningbacks can do other things besides run the football.

Bears meet with Freeman


I had Freeman coming in in my next mock…I think this would be the perfect place for him but as has been said he has to be willing to come in cheap.

Cool story bro. Actually saw it on rotoworld when i saw the news.

Quote:
Bears worked out former Titans RB Javon Ringer and former Cowboys RB Phillip Tanner.
These names confirm how desperate the Bears are for depth behind Matt Forte. Second-year Michael Ford is the only other tailback on Chicago's roster, and he has zero NFL carries to his name. Even if signed, neither Ringer nor Tanner will offer much from a fantasy perspective. Ringer did not play in 2013 and has struggled with injuries in his five-year career, and Tanner sports a 2.7 yards-per-carry average over 56 career carries.


If its about pass blocking and ST, then we can sign another Olineman and CB to do those things. The main point of a RUNNINGback is to RUN. Forte isnt coming out on third down, this is about somebody that can spell him in the running game. If you would much rather have someone come into the game every 3rd series to not run the football, that is going to make us VERY one dimensional. And even if they were to have him back there and run the ball, less than 3 yards a pop aint gonna cut it, but if you enjoy yelling at your TV on sundays, then be my guess.

Let's take a look at the ineptitude of backup running backs that we have had for Forte:

Kevin Jones
Garrett Wolfe
Khalil Bell
Adrian Peterson (probably our best backup in the past 10 years)
Chester Taylor
Armando Allen
Marion Barber
Michael Bush

I dont know about you, but i wasnt the biggest fan of our offense stalling because we had to take out Forte to give him a break, and if you think Javon Ringer or Phillip Tanner will be any better, you are mistaken.

I'm not sure I agree that the Bears are 'desperate' to sign a back up RB. If we were desperate, we would have been looking at any of the decent CoP backs that signed reasonable deals, Jennings (not for 4 years though), Moreno, Brown, Blount.

I think what is more likely is that we are not looking to spend a lot of money on a backup RB anymore, considering how much we have blown on the likes of Taylor, Barber, and Bush.

Barber was a good back up RB. People just can't forget that one play.

He may very well come off on 3rd downs. Probably why Phil Emery expressed that the backup RB needs to be proficient in the area's I just described. In the end it doesnt matter who the 2nd or 3rd RBs are. As long as they are cheap and you can give them a carry every once in a while. The main point of a RB starting is to run...his priorities change once he takes a backup role.Being good in special teams and blocking is a definite plus. Michael Bush was expensive and they barely used him. This team has bigger issues to worry about than this and no doubt they will pick up one later in the draft or as a UDFA.

It's the effort that counts, and he tried really hard.
