Never understood the LMJ pick when we already had Hunter, who's just as quick and bigger/stronger. If we can get reasonable trade value for him, I say go for it.
IF we trade LaMichael he will only be used to free up a roster space for the player we trade for. The caveat is the team needs to need an RB and right now the only team that "needs" an RB is the team that wants the highest pick and the player everyone on this board is scared of.
Tennessee has Chris Johnson, Shonn Greene, Jackie Battle, and their KR/PR specialist Darius Reynaud is listed as RB
New York has Brandon Jacobs(who is playing will), David Wilson (who is injured but has shown that in flashes he is better than LMJ), Darell Scott, Henry Hynoski, and Andre Brown. WR Rueben Randle has done a good job on punts for them.
David Wilson's injury could be season ended according to a report but they are expecting Andre Brown to return from his broken leg soon.
While the Browns have Willis McGahee, Dion Lewis (a worse version of LMJ), Bobby Rainey(another inexperienced RB), Chris Ogbonnaya(a delanie/b. miller type), and Fozzy Whittaker(their current KR specialst).
LMJ's only value to this team going forward is a conditional day 3 pick or as a bonus add-on in a trade for a WR.
The Eagles make sense because of scheme familiarity for LMJ and outside of Shady they only have Bryce Brown(fumblitus) and Chris Polk(a power runner)
Jason Avant is only due 2 million this season and 2.25 next year
Jeremy Maclin is due 3.2 million before becoming an FA
The Jets reportedly need an RB as Mike Goodson has gone public before the Jets did by saying he tore his MCL and ACL this weekend.
Too bad the only 2 WRs on their roster worth a damn are untouchable...
Holmes is due 10M plus the next 2 seasons
and Stephen Hill is clearly their #1 threat and a long term investment.
