Too much money for such a huge injury risk (chronic foot). Thumbs down. Use the draft for a RB. It will be cheaper. Spend FA money elsewhere for a position tougher to fill. Backs are a dime a dozen and given the right scheme and OL, you don't need exceptional talent for success. Case in point: NE Pats. They have had average backs for years (Green Ellis, Ridley, Vereen, to name the most recent unspectacular backs) but have displayed tremendous production from the position.
Spending a 1st round pick or using a ton of free agent money for a RB (unless it's a talent like Peterson) is just fiscally irresponsible for most NFL teams.
No thank you.
Bradshaw spends every season on the injury report/missing games and he's not a workhorse No.1 back. I'd much rather draft someone and field a three man rotation between said draft pick, Powell and McKnight.
No thanks to Bradshaw.
If the Jets FO spend anywhere it should be on the OLine or used to resign Landry at a reasonable price.
I don't think we can afford to spend money on a RB in free agency. Bradshaw gets hurt a lot too
Time to take a cue from the Giants and also do not sign a player they won't.

We want players for what they will become, not for what they once were.
On signing Bradshaw:
Idzik: "It would be bad."
Rex: "Define "bad"."
Idzik: "Imagine all life as you know it stopping instantaneously, and ever molecule in your body exploding at the speed of light."
Rex: "Okay, that's bad."
If the Jets are going to sign an RB in free agency (which probably isn't the best idea), I'd skip Bradshaw and take a look at Mike Goodson. Speed, quickness, good receiver, younger (26 when the season starts), played in a WCO and will likely be cheap. He flashed some with Carolina a few years back and with Oakland last season before an injury.
Still, I'd pass on signing an RB and draft one and go with him and Powell.
Time to stop starting threads.
