Yes, I agree. If you have a decent O line, then a RB isnt that difficult of a spot to fill. Its almost as easy as finding a decent WR if you have a good QB.

We dont need to sign a running back.

I think our most pressing needs right now are ILB, OG, NT, WR, (this will be higher IF Wallace leaves and/or we do not sign Cotchery) Safety/CB and then RB and Kicker. Just one man's opinion.

Battle from KC could be a nice change of pace guy and is familiar with Haley

even he wouldnt fit under our current cap situation. the only new back you are likely to see is if one is drafted (whether it be FB or RB).

as it is, it looks like we might be drafting for an immediate replacement that allows us to cut hampton.

Or maybe we could convince Hampton to play running back?

Yep, bring someone in for insurance. Rbs go down quickly. Look at last year, steelers lost 3.

I say look for speed if we draft a back.

The current guys 40 times
Reman 4.76
Clay 4.77
Dwyer 4.69
Batch 4.50 coming off a knee injury he will lose speed.
Chad Spann 4.52

and Mendenhall? how about 4.41

And yet Dwyer had a 70 yard TD run last year. Still dont think we need a RB, as there will be tons of vets in Free Agency if wanted.
