Not interested in Bradshaw. Hurt way to much  and is nothing special. Better off re-signing Benson, keeping Harris and drafting a rb higher up un the draft, in the 1st - 3rd rounds.

One of the beat writers tweeted in the last half hour that TT stated there was a scenario where Benson coul return

Oh goody, we are in the market for an over the hill back returning from a serious injury and a younger back who has had so many injuries he was turned loosed by a team that is not known for making stupid personnel decisions (and has won 2 of the past 6 Super Bowls).

Is there someone hiding behind Curtain 3? C'mon TT you can do better than this at RB can't you?

I'd rather TT pass on these broken down backs and take someone in draft.

i'd sign him.  he's more explosive than Jackson and as i recall he's only 26.  sure he's been banged up, but i doubt he's going to get a huge money offer anyway.  i think he'd be a great fit as a 3rd down back in our offense, he's a better weapon in the screen game than anyone else on the roster (besides maybe Cobb).

a backfield of Harris/Bradshaw/draft pick would be solid.

Tend to fully agree with this.  It would require drafting a sturdy RB b/c Bradshaw's a walking injury and we have no idea on Harris' injury tendencies after only watching him play for a brief part of the season, but I definitely wouldn't complain with a group like that.

No interest in Bradshaw. He is hurt way to much and is nothing special to start with.

I think now they should just re-sign Benson as he was starting to learn the offense well and starting to do better and better as well as the players anc oaches all liking him alot, keeping Harris and drafting a rb in one of the top 3 rounds that has the potential to be our future starter or "bell cow" running back.

Well, Bradshaw is certainly better than Benson. The issue is what would he cost?

I see Harris as a similar type back as Bradshaw.  Maybe a poor mans Bradshaw, but still.  He seems like a repetitive type of back to me.  I'd be more interested in Beanie Wells to be honest.

I feel like the shiftier backs are better suited in our offense but with the fact Wells is still on the market I wouldn't mind seeing if he's available for a minimum deal

I dunno ... Packer RBs need to show something in the passing game to get on the field, and Wells is one of the most useless receivers out of the backfield I've ever seen. I actually wonder whether Felix Jones has anything left.

Agreed, sadly enough though I think Bradshaw and his chronic foot issues still missed less time than Wells and Jones over the last few years

Bradshaw usually plays with his chronic injury.  Just doesn't practice.

Just as an update to those interested it looks like Bradshaw is going to Pitt as long as he passes the physical
