him and willie both want to be the starter. thats not happening here.

but then again, arians could finally unveil that "horsie" backfield he has been bragging about with 3 running backs in the backfield on passing downs.

that will trick everyone and we will rule the world!

He won't be cheap. What's more someone will (grossly, more than likely) overpay him for what he did circa 2006, not what he is capable of doing now, and I'm glad it won't be the Steelers.

IF...and thats a big IF..he came cheap and was willing to take a reserve/mentor with the Steelers...Absolutely I'd take him! We'd be fools not to....Just his experience should certainly be able to teach Mendy something I would imagine...plus if Mendy were to get hurt, I'd feel better with LT back there in an emergency than our green crew that we have now. Can never have enough quality backs....remember in 2008 when Davis was playing HB for almost an entire game due to injuries....Not a good plan.

He will want to much money and he wants to start that is why he don't want to be in San Diego. LT is not the back he used to be so I hope we can find someone else.

What's the obsession with drafting and signing free agent RBs? Did I miss something about Mendy and his posse? Or, more to the point: Why would we even want Adrian Peterson and Chris Johnson on our team when they would just be picking up blitzers for Ben?

Can we start talking about CBs and linemen instead?

No, he is past his prime and has a lot of wear on him. Not to mention he is a puss when it comes to injuries.
