If he would be willing to take less money to stay here then I think we could keep him. But if he isnt willing to do that, then Good Rithens'.
Its a good thought,but Faneca is as good as gone. I'm curious to see how they move the old o-line and rookies around.

Wow...and people actually question Jerome Bettis getting in on a first ballot to the HOF? Big backs ALWAYS break down. They can't carry the load, day to day, week to week, year to year. That's exactly why successful one's are so rare, and also why they are mostly only effective in "thunder and lightning" scenarios.

And WHY do people continue to bandy around the term "league minimum"? The only players who sign for league minimum are guys nobody ever heard of, and that's also usually for a very good and valid reason. Foster will still command a pretty penny.

no need...

maybe if willie doesn't recover from that broken leg then sign someone else but definitely NOT deshaun foster... i swear he peaked like 2-3 years ago in the playoffs and has been on the downward spiral of his career..

His injuries and fumbling problems I say no unless he takes league minimum.

Haven't we had enough of RBs not being healthy and just standing on the sidelines modeling the gray sweats?

Or is it just me?

First of all, have to agree with the general consensus on Foster....too many injuries, too many fumbles, too much money, and too similiar to FAST WILLIE. What we need is a real physical, Jerome Bettis type to complement Parker (see Lorenzo Neal, TJ Duckett, Mewelde Moore).

As far as Faneca goes, I'm not sure how well he fits into the new plan to open up the offense. IMHO his pass protection has dropped off the last 2-3 years.

Still more interested in Gandy and Muhammad on the FA market.

Foster, not thanks, we have Wilie, Najeh is still on the team for now, Russell and Davis seemed to do well last year when they saw time...

Only back I want...is Steven Jackson from the Rams. I'd give up a 3rd pick in 2067 and a 2nd round pick in 2024 to get that guy. Stupid Rams would probably take that deal too!

Default Re: How about another Foster in the Burgh!!

is barry fosters son available?

i would love to pry michael bush away from the raiders. but he will probably be the "thunder" to fargas' "lightning".

there is speculation l. jordan and d. rhodes will be released. both would be worth an interview.
