Default Let the Duckett Rumors Fly (again)

ESPN's John Clayton hints that T.J. Duckett may again become an option for the Steelers as they continue their search for a big running back.

Duckett, whom Pittsburgh showed interest in before the Redskins traded for him, is unlikely to be re-signed by Washington. Najeh Davenport is big in figure but doesn't run like it. John Kuhn is a sleeper to emerge as Pittsburgh's short-yardage and third-down back next season.

I hope for one.. that we dont go after him.
I hope that we just go into the draft and improve our O line and our secondary and let Kuhn have his chance at the big back spot in the offseason..

Anyone know why Duckett hasn't been given a look in at Washington?

Now that Portis is out, Ladell Betts has not only leapt over Duckett in the depth chart, but has also been given a long term contract.

Its a pretty sure thing he wont be in a Redskins outfit next year.

The Patriots didn't bother with swagger to start this NFL season; they went straight to defiant. Either you're one of them or you're about to get crushed.

That is an interesting question. With Clinton Portis out you would think Duckett would have gotten the ball more. I don't think Duckett will be back with Skins either next year.

I remember watching a Skins game earlier in the season and the guys in the booth were asking the exact same question.

ladell betts needs something like 63 ypg to get a 1000 yds for the season which explains why ducket has been glued to the bench.

Gotta be some bad reason... of course Betts was with the Redskins for a while now and maybe he just knows the offense alot better than the out of shape bull runner out of Atlanta... The falcons let him go to easy in my opinion they knew something...

That's a nice chunk of change to have sitting on the bench. Were they expecting a ripped and chiseled Duckett before giving him that check?

Najeh is half and half. He's shown glimpses of brilliance but then he's shown an inability to run consistently.

If Duckett can't get on the field in Atlanta or Washington, I sure don't want him here.
