You are right in suggesting that we need another back, being that we are only carrying two right now with the injuries (3 if you include hilliard).
I do not believe that a RB with bell's characteristics are what we need, however.
check this excerpt out:
He isnt a fast guy, and sounds like a less impressive Greene; He is only averaging 2.7 YPC this year. 12 carries, with a long of 18. Take away that long run and he is virtually useless.
If we are going to pick up a RB, we need a 3rd down back.
The Jets still kept Riley the rest of the season. He wasn't signed just for intell purposes. He was in TC this season and made it until the final cuts.
