Of those Bradshaw and Turner are most interesting for a back up.

Theres still a lot of RBs available like Ahmad Bradshaw, Michael Turner, Peyton Hillis, Beanie Wells, Andre Brown, Kevin Smith, Larod Stephens-Howling, & Jackie Battle. I don't think too many of them will find a home until after the draft though.

I'm surprised Bradshaw is still available because he's like the second highest ranked FA running back...he must be wanting starter money

D.milliner(cb),I know its not as much these days but wouldn't a team rather invest #3 pick money on a corner then DL..D.L. seem to have a higher bust ratio in the draft...

With the new cap system, rookies are paid based on their performance versus the pay of others at their position with similar stats if I remember correctly...Draft position money shouldn't mean anything anymore.

Actually I did a little more research and all rookies pretty much make rookie minimum their first year, but overall value of rookie contracts in rounds 1 & 2 is a little higher. There is a rookie cap for each team each year and it fits into the teams overall salary cap, but is a separate calculation.

yeah, i'm not concerned about him being a cb, even reggie said he thinks it suits him better, it's more of a, who the heck is going to backup dmc, cause more than likely he'll go down at some point. history and his aggressive, yet sacrificial running style speak for itself. and i haven't really heard anyone talking about getting a couple guys back there?? maybe Felix Jones or something? i don't know, i'm sure reggie will handle it, i just don't here much talk about it.

Frlix Jo es would be a solid backup. It will be a Razorback reunion!!
