He might not be the most amazingly talented guy on the team, but he's still pretty dependable in a lot of roles.
- He runs with enough speed and agility to break a few long runs here and there
- He runs with enough power to punch it in the end zone in goal line situations
- He can block well enough in passing situations
- He can block well enough on kick/punt return plays
- He can tackle well enough on kick/punt coverage plays
And on top of that he's a good locker room guy and fun to watch on the sidelines.
And now he's our 2nd most proven RB.
I for one am pretty happy they kept him on the roster this year.
I think he would be perfect for the Green Bay Packers.
but I hope we can keep him for the long run, if we can't find anyone better.
I've always envisioned our future RBs being Hunter and Dixon.... and now even better with Hunter and James subbing for each other and Dixon coming in as well.
heck Hunter, James, and Dixon all in the backfield at the same time with Kaep...lol.
