Run anyone on the depth chart that is under LGB's name and throw the ball to vj and mw like crazy?

Naismith was right about Revis. Everyone else is a dummy.

Monte Ball
Stephan Taylor
Dennis Johnson
Zac Stacey
Robbie Rouse
Mike James

One of those guys should be the plan. People say RB isn't a need, but it is. If you don't have a solid stable of backs, then you are just asking for trouble. Running backs rarely make it through an entire season without injury. Especially when they have 370 touches per season.

Add Knile Davis to that list

Mike James is a very underrated. Can catch out of the backfield, can block, and can play  FB as well

It's strange that Ahmad Bradshaw is still on the market. You'd figure Sully would be all over his guy.
Especially being on the market so long, he'd come pretty cheap at this point.

Good pass protector and a decent enough runner who can create yards.

Bradshaw has a foot like Grandpa.

He is a very solid running back when healthy.

Bradshaw would be amazing behind Doug. He won't want to be a backup again though and the Packers will probably pick him up after the draft.

Blount and Stepfan Taylor with our first 4th rounder.

Stepfan Taylor would be the 3rd down back and Blount would be the emergency RB.

If they trade Blount they will be creating another need. We would need two RB'S if that happens.

    DJ Ware is gone; we signed Brian Leonard. An upgrade, though I think we need another RB from the draft or FA.

If they dont trade Blount than hes the obvious option.

If they had any intention of using Blount they would have used him last year.  Just forget about him.  The only reason he is still here is because they hope they can get something for him, not because they think he can be part of the team

Christine Michael.  Although my favorite is Johnathan Franklin...

Who knew how good it would feel as a fan when we now know what it\'s like for our team to have a direction, an attitude, and dare I say an offense?.  

Good time to be a Bucs fan.

Michael Smith?? He is still on the roster right? Guys got some speed. Didn't see much of him last year but I'm hoping that was just him adjusting to the NFL and a year on the practice squad smoothed out some of those edges.

Can anyone provide more insight into Brian Leonard's body of work in the NFL?

We know he's an upgrade over Askew but is he better than Blount?? I say that to say this if he's an upgrade over Blount then yeah let's get what we can for Blount and I'm sure Mark with due diligence will find his way back into the top 10 (at the rate he's been finagling). Not really but possibly back into the first round if not more pics.

I more than anyone is, or was, a fan of Blount. His 1000 yard rushing season can't be ignored and left me wanting more.. I also realize the inevitable if he hasn't done anything since and can't make his way into getting reps he's clearly not the back we thought he was. He damn sure can't punch it in on the goal line we know that.

I'm not worried in the least.   Sure, Martin is good, but Leonard is a stud.
