I know he can play special teams and catch a bit. But how is he as a runner? Particularly as a between-the-tackles runner.

He was a fan favorite. Everyone wanted him to see more playing time, and when he got the chance looked really good. He's going to fit in really well on your offense. He could end up being a really really good player for you.

Doesn't really answer my question, but alright.

Only carrying the ball 80 times in 3 years it is hard to say. He only was featured in 1 game and ran well between the tackles and overall.

Ok let me clarify then since you can't read between the lines. He runs real good between the tackles...

Dude can ball. Good runner, good pass catcher. Ace STer. He's a big get for the patriots.

Limited burst but excellent balance and vision. Very good hands out of the backfield and a willing pass blocker. Not great in between the tackles but it's very good at finding and exploiting a crease. Won't run anyone over, but if you give him an inch, he'll take it. Ace special teams player. I would have rather lost Hill than Burkhead, he'll fit like a glove in New England.

Rex to the Pats was the most predictable move IMO this pre-season.

Rex is good at everything. Swizz-Army knife type of guy.

Like others have said; I'd rather we cut Jeremy Hill and locked-up Rex.
You'll love him up in NE, and McDaniels will have real fun with him.

Typical Bengals loss. Never got enough snaps.
