You can add Texans RB Steve Slaton, who apparently has been made expendable in Houston considering Arian Foster's emergence, to the free-agent/trade possibilities being rumored to fill a badly needed backup role behind Rams workhorse RB Steven Jackson. Slaton had a strong rookie campaign in 2009 but ended up on injured reserve last year. Of all the RB prospects that have popped up on the rumor mill (Darren Sproles, Reggie Bush, Cadillac Williams, Slaton), team insiders tell us the name continuing to generate the most positive buzz is that of Sproles, who would appear to offer a particularly appealing change of pace to Jackson. "He has the name recognition and added value on special teams," one insider said of Sproles, who played his college ball at Kansas State. "I don't see 'Cadillac' coming here. I think for him to leave Tampa Bay, it would have to be for a starting role."

No team in their right mind would make Caddy the #1 guy.

Wouldn't mind Sproles coming here, or even Slaton.  He was banged up the last couple years but if he is healthy now, could be worth a shot as a Caddy replacement.

\\\\\\\"Java, do you understand this a perfect example of why people beg me to suspend or ban you on a daily basis? Are you actually trying to make a point? Seriously what is the reason for even commenting. In fact why do you even bother coming to the boards? What happened to the intelligent poster from years ago?  A real shame. Like the Bucs yesterday, a wasted effort.\\\\\\\"

If it ain't Caddy - it'll be one of the UDFA's IMO (Locke, Fanin, Spann or Devine.)  or hell - it might be Caddy AND one of those...


Go get Bridgewater.   Do what it takes.

Sproles could be the guy I thought Huggins was going to be. But I guess Huggy is done.  Wonder if Sproles is looking for huge jack.  He could do return duties also.

Disagree...

Small market for the guy...

Hometown discount.

This team is pretty tight...  I'd expect them to make a reasonable offer and for him to have no other real options.

Just my opinion.

Go get Bridgewater.   Do what it takes.

I think he'd be a nice #3 back here.

Agree with Blind Melon.  Caddy is a fan fav, tho not apparantly on this board.  He won't cost a lot and he means a lot to this team of brothers.

Caddy is a great 3rd down back. He should relish in that role, it's an important role in the NFL.

I have no problem with keeping Caddy as the 3rd down back for a few more seasons. Bring in some UDFA's behind him but force them to take the position from him.

And with the first pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers select Teddy Bridgewater, Quarterback, Louisville.

I must say; i like the looks of Chad Spann; but, if not, Carnel has proven to be a great third down back and compliment to Blount.
