We can hopefully trade one of them when push comes to shove. We can keep all til Dunbar comes off of PUP. Special Teams will be key for backup RB's since Zeke will rarely come off the field.

Yes, and that's why I'm saying it's a long shot for McFadden to be on the team for week 1.

ZEKE.....Jackson....Smith....and Dunbar when he's ready.

Jackson and Smith are Special Teams Demons.

ZEKE carries the load.

Yes...in 2017

Alfred Morris will be on the team this year. No reason to waste $1.8M against the cap this year to cut him. Short yardage and helps the touch count with Zeke.

Jackson will help ZEKE's touch count.

I'd bet Morris is close to d-o-n-e.

So you want to cut McFadden and Morris - both 1,000 rushers - and have a 6th round RB as your backup? No way, no how. Morris will definitely be on the roster.

Again, he's currently costing $1.3m against the cap. Cut him and you ADD another .5M.

Apparently McClay, Garret, and the Jones's think he was worth a 2 year contract. He'll at least be in the team this year.

I see Jackson as possible practice squad material, no more this year.

But hey, it's a good problem to have.

He will be used a ton in training camp and preseason I'm sure.
