I guess that’s the rub. Barkley, even on limited showing seems to back up the hype. So yes I’d be more inclined to go get him, pre-knee Gurley too. Elliot.., not so much, but that’s just my personal opinion on the player.
I just feel there’s inherently more risk with wear and tear at the RB position vs say a WR that makes me loathe to invest long term big cap spending into one.
Not sure if shouting or echo from under the bridge....
To be clear, are. you saying that a team can’t win a Super Bowl without signing top dollar FAs or making exuberant trades? Because throwing the Pats out there doesn’t support your argument really.. they seem do well out of buying cheap and not resigning guys as soon as there is a whiff of decline.
