He just didn't work out for us. He was never able to become a number 1 back.
I always thought he was a good RB by committee type player, but he never would have been the main guy in a scheme like that. I also believe Bilal Powell and Joe McKnight are not the main RB's in a RB by committee scheme.
I had delusions of grandeur with this guy, and was obviously disappointed. He is remarkably adept at not finding the hole and not making cuts. Wish him well elsewhere, but we couldn't have gotten rid of him sooner. He's been waste of roster space if you ask me.
Looking forward to the draft!
Shonn Greene is a "closer" of sorts. He has been most effective when he comes off the bench fresh in the second half, or on certain plays when the defense has been on the field for a long time. Thomas Jones and him worked. LT started, and Greene cleaned up. As a starter, he's not that versatile.
Exactly. He had 1000 yards each season the last 2 years on one of the worst offenses in the league.
I'm ok with him leaving but he will be good somewhere else if he lands on the right team.
So averaging under 4 yards/carry this year is good despite the fact the offensive line ranked in the top 5 for fewest stuffs allowed (tackle for loss or no gain) in the league? Get the hell out of here.
