With the Ward signing, I think we're well set at RB. Graham/Caddy plus Ward as a 3rd down back and very solid insurance. With Caddy and Graham both coming off injuries, Clifton S. could play a reasonable role periodically throughout the season. Since our top two guys went down last season, I could easily see us drafting a RB in the 4th/5th.
However, I don't think the new front staff will not have near the patience Gruden/Allen had. Fair enough though, 3 strikes and your cut. But does the front office even have that much patience. I could see the new GM try offering him around the league. Maybe showcase him early then deal him before the deadline. Hope not though, or else its another jersey obsolete.
You know one thing I noticed about college back coming out of dual rb systems, if they take on the load in the NFL they are more likely to get injured. If they carried the load in college, then they are not as injury prone.
Look at Caddy and Brown, both came out of Auburn splitting carries, and then they entered the NFL as the primer back, and did good untill injury bug hit from taking to many hits. Now they both are in a dual rb system again, so now I think they'll be fine.
Caddy will get traded before he gets cut, they don't really need him but if he is there than so be it. And they don't need to cut him because of salary cap issues.
