What Happens if DeAngelo Williams is Cut or Traded?

I just had a thought pop into my head. What will we do if we lose DeAngelo? Draft a RB, sign one to compete with Tauren Poole for backing up Jonathan? Someone tell me your thoughts. I'm hoping for Kenjon Barner personally.

Who cares? He taking up big bucks. He is not used right, let him win a ring.

really don't need anybody, unless a cheap-ass free agent that could complement the two guys we have now is a better option than what we have a third-string.

spend money and resources on fixing the offensive line the backs we keep will look better, and so will our quarterback, and all three phases will feed off of each other like the symbiosis you expect to see on a winning football team.

draft one in the 6th or 5th at highest. We need to stop putting so much towards running backs we dont use. We would be fine without DWill where were at since we do have Tolbert

I wouldn't draft one. Obviously Gio Bernard is the best in this draft, but he'll go in the first or early second. If we lose D and we want another RB, go with Poole & Stew.

Trade to Green Bay I can see.

Well, we take on a big cap hit. Then I would assume we use Poole as the back up.

If we have a better Offensive Coordinator next year, it will be different. Who knows, we might ACTUALLY use our RB's! But yes we do need to fix our OL.

Or maybe we keep him and a new coach has the ability to use him correctly?

And btw, I think Armond Smith is above Poole.

I agree for the most part about what you said, except what we do with RB's currently in our play-calling won't matter with new coaching staff next year if we get one. Also Tolbert can play RB or FB. Though we could use a better blocking FB, Tolbert can play RB, TE, or FB. That's why I think we keep Tolbert at FB. Hope I didn't confuse you lol.
