    Back up Running back

    Has anyone heard who we might be looking at as a back up for Steven Jackson?

    Haven't. If it were my call, I'd certainly want to get Tony Fisher back as the number 3 guy + additional pass blocker, assuming his leg's ok. Thought he was excellent value for money when he was healthy last year.

    1. Samkon Gado
    2. Correll Buckhalter
    3. LaBrandon Toefield
    4. Anthony Thomas
    5. Artose Pinner

    I think there's a pretty good chance that Stephen Davis will be back in that role, provided some other team doesn't overpay for him. If not, I'd look for the Rams to take a RB in the 3rd or 4th round. Most of the FAs out there, in my opinion, are not particularly attractive.

    I agree, I think we're better off drafting a back-up.

    Whats the status on Michael Turner? I'd like to see him playing as a backup and handling some return duties.

    Stephen Davis will be back and the Rams will draft someone late who has some speed and wiggle.

    The deal with Michael Turner is he got the high tender from the San Diego Chargers, meaning signing him to an offer sheet will cost us a first and third rounder. We could negotiate to trade for him, but it won't be cheap and he likely wants to go to a team where he will get more playing time. AKA, we should look elsewhere.

    Re: Back up Running back

    We should look to the middle to late rounds of the draft for a running back. There are a lot of mediocre running backs in this draft. We could take a productive runner out of college and I think they would be good backups to Jackson. IE Antonio Pittman out of Ohio State. The guy ran a 4.4 40 and I don't see anyone giving him love. Or if we wanted to go late we could pick someone like a Garrett Wolfe out of North Illinois or a Jon Cornish out of Gay-U.
