    Re: Weaver too expensive, maybe Karney?

    I hear he'll be visiting Rams Park tomorrow.

    There's something fishy/thin about the one dimensional argument ,though. Evans is hardly a receiving threat himself. In fact,Karney has more catches,53 to 40, in fewer seasons.

    There was an injury-either calf or knee depending who you read, last year that kept him out for a few games.

    Last thing we need is another Kreider; good player rep/broken body.

    Karney > Hedgecock


    Karney fits the 4 pillars. He is a great teammate as well. He has the desire to perform at his best and is a team first guy.

    Karney is a better FB then Hedgecock. Had we kept Hedgecock he would not have made the difference in us being a playoff team, not like Fletcher, Fred Miller, Ryan Tucker, Dre Bly, etc. It was a mistake to let Hedgecock go and he has now shown that he can be a decent FB. Although he did not provide much when he was here, you could see he was making progress and primed for a break out. The only break out we saw was was him breaking out of the Edaward Jones Dome prison. Bottom line Karney will help us forget all about Hedgecock.


    I even changed my Avatar prior to hearing we were interested in him. I think with Karney, Brown, and if we keep Pace (1st preference) OR get a 1st Round OT (2nd preference) our running game will be much improved.

    Good point about the receptions. Here's an excerpt from an article when Evans was signed and Karney released:

    The Saints obviously decided to go for a more versatile, athletic fullback in Evans, who has served as a backup tailback, backup tight end and special teams specialist, in addition to traditional fullback duties in his eight-year career with the Patriots, Dolphins and Seahawks.
    So, while he isn't so much of a receiving threat, apparently he is more versatile and able to fill in on different roles for the team. Still haven't read anything about Karney having major injury problems.
