Default Darren McFadden possibly on trade block

What would you give for him? I would give a 3rd or possibly a 2nd rounder for him. What do you guys think? IMO he would solve our RB problem but can be injury prone

Do you think he has the upside to be better than McFadden?

I think he had a 3.3 YPC last year. I wouldn't give up a high or mid round pick.

Easily worth a 2 pick. I don't his contract status but I'm sure his contract is up soon and the Steelers could not afford him.

Better of with a rookie at this point because he would be around for awhile.

Wouldn't want him. First off he is injured every single year. He had two good seasons but they were derailed by injuries. He can't stay healthy

I see your point and as I said he is injury prone but I think with a good team around him he would be much better. He is good now but I'm not sure if our team is considered better at this time.
