Greene gives you exactly what Turner gives you at this point in his career. Little to no recieving ability, no homerun ability but he is a liabilty in pass pro. You could sign your entire draft class for that 2-3 million.
I agree that Greene only replicates what Turner 'can' do. My point was, unless you are going to completely change the RB scheme, why not? If we 'need' a guy with receiving ability, we have Quizz, Snelling and 5th round pick guy. What we need is a guy who can gut out those short yards.
Unless you are going to go all out (say get Lacy) then Im saying it's not so cut and dry. If this guy is cheap enough why not? If he wants 5 mil, forget it. 3 mil? Maybe.....
If it's pass protection, that needs to be addressed on the OL, IMO.
Pudge thinks Bradshaw>Greene. Maybe. Look at Bradshaw's injury history http://www.kffl.com/player/16335/nfl/in ... d-bradshaw
vs Greene:http://www.kffl.com/player/20785/nfl/in ... onn-greene
So, what I'm seeing here is we either go after Lacy with our first pick, or were left with a FA that's not that good, and comes with age and injury, or we roll the dice in the later rounds with guys Like Lattimore or Monty Ball or Christine Michael.
IMO, if we could get Greene for less around 3 mil on a make good deal, and draft a project like Ball or Micheal, we can then focus on where the most help is needed: OL and DE.
