Be the GM Part 5

This will be a repeating feature. We will take each position in turn. For each position we will look at the players we already have on the roster and whether those player should be retained, resigned, traded, or cut. We will also discuss whether we need help in the draft, trades or free agency. The next position is an area with a lot of questions, RUNNING BACK.

Currently on roster and cap hit if signed next year:

Jamaal Charles under contract cap hit $4.25 million
Thomas Jones UFA
Dexter McCluster under contract cap hit just over $1 million
Jackie Battle FA
Leron McClain UFA
Shaun Draughn unknown

No one is 100% with Charles health and there is some REALLY dead wood as far as RB's go on this roster.

Pay Charles and see how he does in spring training.
Cut Jones
Cut McCluster
Let Battle test Free Agency but give him semi-generous offer to see if he will stay
Resign Leron McClain. as a FB he still can block well and he can take McCluster's carries
WTF is Shaun Draughn?? training camp fodder or practice squad him if that is possible.

If we can't move down for a BPA or move up for a QB then take in the draft Trent Richardson.

So your main back is Charles if he is Healthy or 90%
Secondary back is Richardson who is taking Jones / McCluster carries.
Battle might be back and he is a breather / garbage time / backup if someone goes down back
McClain is your FB for Blocking and possible 3rd down back.

On 3rd and short which the Chiefs have been having issues, Put Richardson as your RB and McLain as your FB and with a decent OC you should be able to get the first down with those two in the game.

IMO McCluster has earned his pay since Cassel has been out of the line-up. Cassel laid him out to dry with the expected check down. For the cap # we can't really complain. Battle won't have much of a cap # either unless another team makes a run for him as a starter. At a minimum he should provide a good alternative to Charles, certainly more than Jones was last year. Jones is dead man walking. I'd rather see better value out of a first that high than a running back. These days they don't outlast their first contract often.

Keep Charles, McCluster, McClainn if he comes cheap.

Draft Richardson in the first if you want. Or a rb somewhere in the draft.

Thanks, thought it would get more discussion. Guess this position is pretty cut and dried. We all hope Charles will be back to form. I think everyone realizes he needs to split carries to a certain extent. The question becomes do you get value from a first round running back these days?

We should keep Battle though. Even though he only had 2 decent games this year and we are likely going to draft someone to do his job.

I was disappointed in McClain, didn't see much reason to bring him back.

I'd be very disappointed if Jones was even invited to camp for anything other than as a workout and conditioning coach.

Last off season I wanted Battle cut, he was terrible in preseason. He played well enough I'd be okay with him coming back as our 3rd RB.

McCluster, well, if we have an OC that isn't afraid to use him then sure, if we are going to use him like Haley and just throw quick WR screens, then why bother.

Sadly that leads us with someone to split carries with Charles, and needing a FB as well.

DMC had around 1300 all purpose yards.

850 or so were from scrimmage.

Know your terminology.
