Looks like Wimbley may be gone. Henderson wouldn't be missed that much. I still think we should've used the franchise tag on Bush and maybe we could've re-signed Branch to a long term deal.

Reason I say we should've franchised Bush is because it would've only cost 1.5 million more at most and it would be If McFadden got hurt and Bush had to carry the load then sign Bush to a long term deal and cut ties with McFadden, but if McFadden stays healthy and pulls his weight, then let Bush walk next year.

idk I really like bush and he is talented enough to start in half the other teams. He is a more than capable back up

I hope we keep wimbley. Bush is more expendable. He is good. But his style of running is pretty common and getting a strong rb isn't as difficult as a crazy legs rb.

The way things are going with all the guys restructuring. who knows.....maybe we can strike a deal with Bush to keep him in Oakland. I know he wants to be a starter--he easily could be--and that's the problem with keeping on the roster with DMac, but until they announce he has signed somewhere else, I will continue to hold out hope.

I think we should find a way to keep Bush. Personally I think McFadden is by far the better running back, but he gets injured too often. Bush seems to be our primary back.

Henderson was released with the “failed physical” designation after played through knee woes in 2011. He was owed $4 million in salary. Henderson is 32 years old.
