    Not surprised. Henry really outplayed him last year.

    I doubt it, my prediction is Seahawks or Raiders.

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

    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?
