    Not surprised. Henry really outplayed him last year.

    Wonder if he ends up back in Dallas.

    I doubt it, my prediction is Seahawks or Raiders.

    He's pretty shot. Wouldn't shock me if he went unsigned.

    He’s better than Ivory at least, no?

    Both are about the same. Ivory came cheap.

    He'll get a deal with some team that needs a good #2 RB. His days as a #1 are done though.

    The problem in Seattle isn't running backs.

    Isn't he a very good at blocking? If so, i'm sure a few pass heavy offenses wouldn't mind having him around.

    Yeah, he's an excellent blocker. I still think he has something left in the tank. Could be an interesting add.

    would be a good add for Detroit. our running game is horrendous. Would be nice to have Demarco / Riddick in the backfield and draft a bigger more north south RB like Chubb, Ballage or Freeman etc.
    Ameer has been pretty disappointing and his running style isn't beneficial imo.

    I do think SEA will add another, since Prosise has yet to have a healthy season and Carson got injured too...but I don't think Murray will be the guy for them.

    You don't want DeMarco Murray.

    obviously he isn't the long term answer but he could be a short term roster plug. Ameer isn't the answer for what Detroit needs imo.

    I don't think Murray is done but he shouldn't be a top target. Lewis and McKinnon are the RBs to go after if you want one in free agency. They're different than Murray/Stewart but that's a good thing.

    Murray is a no go because he can't break tackles or create yardage anymore. The Lions don't exactly have a road grading o-line.

    lol he is still better than what we have now.

    that being said I am hoping they draft a RB that works out for us.

    I thought maybe it was a Bevell/Cable thing but they're once again looking at older/slower backs even with those two gone. Why?
