  • POLL: Which Running Backs Get the Ax?

    With the drafting of Spiller and Horvath, plus the signings of free agents Leddie Brown and Kevin Marks, our RB room looks to be quite a bit different from last year. Looks upgraded, to say the least, depending on who gets cut. JJ is gone. Can Horvath unseat Nabors? Is he a RB, FB or both? Who gets cut? Vote for multiple choices!

    I voted to cut all three. Time to cut loose the low-producing backs and bring in some fresh young bucks to back up Ekkie.

        I think Nabors and Kelley go somewhere else.

          Going with Kelley, Rountree, and JJ all are not back. Ideal if JJ can be on the practice squad and called up if necessary. Power running O Line is good now. Smash mouth football with a big and deep backfield is the recipe to win lower scoring games because they can't put 8 in the box against Herbie.
          Salyer, Zion, and McKitty on the right side in short yardage and the D won't be able to overload either side.

            Gabe Nabers is not a running back. He never carries the ball. He was a TE in college. He is a blocking back who occasionally runs routes out of the backfield.

              I'd be shocked if Kelley made the 53 roster this year.

                agreed, hoping for some smash mouth football with Nabers blocking for Horvath out of jumbo and McKitty strong side lineups

                  Everyone not named Ekeler. And I guess the rookies.

                    I don't know if they will keep Nabers if Horvath makes the roster. My feeling is they drafted Horvath to replace Nabers because Horvath is an actual RB who can carry the ball while Nabers is not a running back and never has been. I could be wrong, I've been wrong before. I don't think there are enough roster spots available to keep them both though. I kind of see Horvath in a role similar to Kyle Juszczyk's role with the 49ers.

                        I think Kevin Marks might turn some heads.Dude runs strong.
