IMO his numbers are too strong to keep him out forever.
3.9 yards per carry over his career and never a threat to catch a pass. You get less a 3.9 YPC in a season, your front office is discussing drafting your replacement.
He had 4 good years in a 13 year career.
He was an accumulator, not a performer. He was not particularly good.
