As per RapSheet:

If it's just to get cap relief and there's no guaranteed $ for 2018 (beyond the cap relief being spread out), I get it. If it's to lock him up for 2018...don't get it, for all the Fournette talk. RB's are so disposable, cutting bait just as their mileage adds up makes way more sense, and the miles are certainly getting up there for him.

Need to see the new #'s before judging, will be interesting to see if they are just spreading the $ out, or actually locking him into 2018 with guaranteed $.

He's been good but not great pretty much his whole career. Now that he's 30 I'm not sure what they expect to get out of him unless they intend on him being the 2 in a 1-2 punch with some rookie like Fournette

Stew is awesome. He can still run hard and the guy split carries for most of his career so he should have some legs left (like DeAngelo Williams). I expect we will take a RB in the first two days to platoon with him as he rides off into the sunset.

And I don't think J-Stew is super replaceable. He's one of the most punishing runners in the league. We want bruisers in the backfield and those aren't that easy to find.

Perine round 3 after you grab a DE and a S or TE
