I didn't mean he'll be the starting RB, I said he'll be on the team.

Rainey will be the only one coming back. Write it down.
I agree. But I would keep Redman as a backup. The other 2; ship them out asap!!

Rainey will never make it as a back in this league. You think yesterday was bad when he got hit? Wait until next time when someone really lays a hit on him. They'll completely break him in half.
Kickoff and punt returns only.

I have to agree...Their are probably thousands of small speedy college players that would be NFL players if not for their size. I

I don't know if he can even take punts and kick offs. He seems too brittle. Plus, he looks to be a liability when it comes to turning the ball over.

i think it's more technique, the guy runs too high and tries to make things happen everytime he has the ball, he doesn't do a good job protecting himself. as a small player in the NFL, he needs to develop that skill or his tenure will be extremely short.

feed him some HGH and put about 10 lbs on him will also help lol

Anyone remember what happened to Stephan Logan? When he began establishing himself as a return threat with us, other teams simply started grabbing him and holding him in place while hammering at the ball until a ref got around to blowing the whistle. I expect the same will be done with Rainey eventually.

I think Stephan Logan returns kicks for Detroit.

On Rainey's and Dwyer's fumbles they were at least spinning and trying to get extra yards. Mendenhall just simply gave up the ball without much of a fight both times and I'm not sure what happened on Redman's fumble, he didn't seem to be hit very hard on the play.
