Free Agent FB's to target
Of all the free agent fullbacks i could find there were only a few that i think are true fullbacks and could have an impact for us. First one is Owen Schmitt-Eagles. I was hoping we would draft him when he came out of West Virginia but Arians doesnt like guys that block. He is a warrior and an animal, and i think he could become successful if used correctly. He's probably most notable for this:
And the other guys is Le'Ron McClain who used to play for everyone heres favorite team the Ravens, but is a massive guy and a decent run blocker. If we dont go with a veteran i would like us to draft somebody to open holes for Redman and Mendenhall depending on who ends up starting.
One guy that is a real weapon but i doubt we would be able to afford him is Marcel Reece. Hes a great runner,receiver and blocker but he might be out of our price range.
And one more guy that isnt a household name but is a pretty good player is Tony Fiammetta from Dallas. DeMarco Murray tore it up when Fiammetta was in the lineup and his numbers dropped when Fiammetta was out. Not a household name yet but could be if he ends up with us.
Id be happy with any of these guys, but whether we will incorporate a fb is yet to be seen

Re: Free Agent FB's to target
I agree that Schmitt could develop into a beast, one of the best pure FB's in the game. I don't want McClain cause he McComplains (nice word play right?) too much. I could see us just signing an infrared rookie FB instead of wasting a pick in one
