Tolbert/stewart Or Tolbert/williams

Recommended Posts

I highly doubt we keep all three of them so who would want to keep? Personally I think our offense would be best with Tolbert and Stewart.

Then again who would want Williams or Stewarts contract.

OP: you're wrong.

Steve Reed @SteveReed_AP

GM Marty Hurney: “Mike (Tolbert)’s signing has does not mean we’re trying to trade DeAngelo (Williams) or Jonathan (Stewart)...

Steve Reed @SteveReed_AP

We’re making no attempts to trade either one of them. We’ve made no calls and will make no calls. (cont)...

Steve Reed @SteveReed_AP

... We view DeAngelo and Jonathan as very valuable members of our team.”

Isn't Stewart still on his rookie contract though? He only has like $1.3M this year.

i would say look beyond just the RB rotation. tolbert can perform the roles of Brockel/Shockey/Vaughn/Goodson. sit 3 of those guys down, play Tolbert (up to 5 carries, 4-5 plays in passing formations, and 10 KO/KO returns, 4-6 punt coverage snaps), and keep Williams/Stewart and have another spot on the 45-man for special teams guy or 5th CB etc. everybody's getting utilized.

Do you really think we are going to keep Williams>Stewart>Tolbert>Goodson>Vaughn>

I can see Goodson getting traded too perhaps.

Also I didn't say one of them was going to be traded, Simply a thread to talk about how they all will be used in our offense. No need to get butthurt. If another thread was made then I missed it and just merge it.

That's not what you originally asked. But anyways....Goodson and/or Vaughn could've been gone even without this signing. I won't be surprised or care if they are no longer with the team once the season begins.

Yeah, even though this is a discussion board I'd say discussing trading Williams or Stewart right now is pointless. Hurney just went out of his way to say we are keeping all 3. I'm all for it. Like someone said his value is greater than some realize because of how versatile he really is. STs is a no brainer, but also just on offense. For a guy built like a fullback he is really nimble and can catch passes out of the backfield really well. He's pretty much going to be doing what Brockel did, but better and used more often I think.

Without a doubt we can agree that at least one of them is going to be traded or not on the team. I really don't understand why we signed Tolbert unless he is going to be used in the passing game very often. I would rather stockpile on WR's for cam not Running Backs.
