um....Cartwright ALSO plays RB. So how is Dixon a waste of a roster space? What would Cartwright be?
I would understand if Dixon was messing up on special teams then it would be an improvement, but that isn't the case...so if you replace Dixon with Cartwright....what would be the benefit? and what do you think we would get for Dixon that could help this team, with the risk of subtracting someone from our already regressed special teams?... as well as the fact that Jacobs is coming back from injury...so if he got injured again, then we don't have a big back to spell Gore or Hunter late in a game....or atleast one that has shown he can help finish a game, like Dixon showed.
I mean what could we get for Dixon... I mean I understand he probably has higher value than say Alex ...but it wouldn't be worth it to trade either the two for peanuts.
edit- Jacobs would make more sense..since he can't get himself on the active roster....THAT is a waste of space.
Dixon helped finish one game, its not a normal thing for him. Our 2nd string QB has more rushing yards.
And we still have LMJ who I assume can offer more at RB.
if ANY team can just randomly get a Special team ACE...THEY WOULD! and if Cartwright was still a special team Ace, he would get picked up by now....and we would've never let him go.
