    I’d like say goodbye Benson & Scott and say welcome Bush & Miller/Martin/Wilson/James/Pead. Keep Mr. 3rd down Leonard and cheapest Peerman.

    It does not matter if Bush only averaged 3.8 yards per carry, while he gets first downs. I do not want a +1000 yds RB (Benson) but a first down maker on short-yardage plays and in the red zone.
    Get the explosiveness with the rookie. After 3 years we can say that Scott is not this guy, he does not deserve more opportunities.

    I’m going to be in a minority here but I’d prefer Tolbert. That dude is a big power back, can double as a full-back and is an outstanding receiver out of the backfield. Additionally, he does a great job in pass pro, and will come relatively cheaply. If we are truly going back-by-committee, he’s a better choice, and can be on the field WITH another back.

    Not that I’m necessarily endorsing it, but we could eliminate Pressley’s roster spot with this signing, opening up other options.

    To me, Tolbert gives us more than Bush, but I’ll take either one.

    I still believe that B. Scott has shown to be a good, change of pace, on 1st and 2nd down for a couple of series. B Leonard is always making plays, and has to be in the fold, find a decent back in the mid to late rounds, yes MID to LATE, Pead if he lasts until the 4th would be great. If you have a great offensive and defensive line, you can have OKAY talent look great in the “skill” positions. Use AJ, Jermaine, Shipley and maybe Garcon, that kind of passing attack makes DB’s back up, and you can run. JMO
