The largest free agent running back contract this past off season was for 4 years and 16 million.

The year before that, Ray Rice, who's never been injured and is a featured back, was signed to only 40 million over 5 years. Matt Forte, similarly never injured and a featured back, only got 30 million over 4 years with just 17 guaranteed.

You expect me to believe that Stewart, who hasn't fuging played in almost a year, who's has a nagging injury of some sort or another his entire career, who had his best statistical season four goddamn years ago, and hasn't topped 800 yds since, is somehow going to demand more money than Matt Forte and the same type numbers as Ray Rice?

Get back to me when you live in reality.


Blah, blah, blah.

Like I've reiterated, there's always an idiot or desperate GM out there that overpays. Hurney wasn't one of a kind.

Actually no, Stewart has graded out as one of the worst RB's in pass protection over the last few years by PFF. Here's 2011 for example

Don't let his highlight of flipping that defender of his shoulder blind you, both Stewart and Williams are decidedly pedestrian in pass protection with Williams actually grading out better despite only having 6 less pass protection snaps.


Stewart has at least graded out overall positive the last 2 years....

Williams an overall negative grade the past 2

Edit: I misread what you typed. Either way, their production is similarly bad across the board.

touche. he's still been effective at catching passes out of the backfield.

 

definitely replaceable though

This is troublesome b/c everyone has been so hush hush about it.

This is also why you don't invest 100 million dollars in Running Backs.


Exactly!

This is why Seattle refused to give Sean Alexander a long term deal. They wanted him to be hungry and in top shape for his next one year deal.. Also he was nearing 27-28 so a long term deal would give negative returns.

Seattle caved in after the MVP season and extended him.. Then was shopping him for a third round pick the next season..

He was out of the league two seasons later.

He did one of my surgeries after a car accident I had. He's very good!
