I would trade all of our backs for Gurley or barkley

Nice. He's good for 4+ yards a carry usually, falls forward to gain yards. Hard runner. I like it.

Those are all system guys. Any list for best RB's that includes Burkhead is LOL

 

You can LOL all you want while Burkhead makes key plays and helps them win playoff games. No one provides group rankings for just talent without usage in a system, period. He was banged up last year and came back in time for their run.

 

If we did not have the OL built up, our RBs wouldn't do much either, it is just the way it goes with RBs. The Patriots' strength is their OL as well. 

 

The sum of the parts as RBs is always greater than the individuals and I feel the Patriots group is better. You can agree to disagree.

Why 3?  And, you forgot Hines.

 

Nyheim Hines

 

Marlon Mack

 

Spencer Ware

 

Jordan Wilkins

 

Jonathan Williams

 

Odds are high we would not keep all five.

 

Four is possible, but unlike it would be more.

Guess Ajayi just wasn't healthy enough

 

I think the issue might’ve also been $$$.   Doubt we’re offering much.   If we’re playing hardball on Inman, I’m guessing we’re playing hardball with Ajayi.

Might slow Wilkins development.  I hope he really shows the coaches something and stays part of the regular 3 man rotation.  I still think the guy is a stud in the making.

Nice signing! I'm guessing we're now keeping 4 RB's. Mack, Hines, Wilkins, Ware, and maybe one of the UDFA RB's to the practice squad.

I feel like I'm the minority here but I believe Wilkins is the better running back then Hines honestly and hope he gets the ball more this year.  I think he was really good last year while splitting the carries between two other backs and still produced good numbers.

i agree Wilkins could get a bigger role and produce but now w parris that should take 3-4 more carries from the rb group

I think a longer contract as well. I heard ajayi wanted a long-term commitment, but Ballard wouldn't budge

I have yet to hear, see or read a single complaint about how Ballard is doing his job. This only serves to make waiting for the season to open that much harder.:coltslogo:

Was hoping for Ajayi but pleased with Ware, he should be the #2 allowing Hines more use in the passing game.

Gurley is washed up, and Barkley is comically overrated. Gettleman should be fired for drafting Barkley over Quentin Nelson

Id trade the Colts RBs for the Chargers RBs in a heartbeat. 

  Gordon > Mack

  Ekeler > Hines

  Jackson = Wilkins

Gurley had over 1700 yards and 21 tds last year rushing and receiving.   Totally washed up

They are better than all of our guys combined.   Thus, we don't have the best back field in the NFL

Pretty sure by his comment, he doesn't anticipate Hines going anywhere.

 

Mack

Hines

Ware

 

=3 RB's

I don’t know why they don’t like Wilkens more than they do

Looks like it.  I wanted Ajayi if healthy but I am excited for this signing as Ware is a very physical runner in his own right.  He will compliment our stable of running backs nicely.  Our offense is going to be a load to deal with this upcoming season.

Gurley did nothing in the playoffs. He was worn down from regular season. Too much wear and tear. He will never be the same. Got out played by CJ Anderson. You know you suck when a RB off the street takes your carries

Even if Gurley is a Superhero the Colts are in better shape

 

    Of the current Rams backups I knew one and that is because he played at Tennessee

If Ware can return to his 2016 form it will be a good signing.  He's a good runner and good blocker and an excellent receiver out of the backfield.

I'm with you.   I think Wilkins has allot to offer.  I hope they keep him.

So is Ware a good blocker?  Maybe he is a CJ Anderson clone.  I was hoping the Colts would pick up Anderson the past 2 years.

Might not be meaningful since it was only 1 season, but Ware had 4 fumbles the year he rushed for over 900 yards.
