    Raiders To Let DeAndre Washington To Test Free Agent Market

    Not a shocker, once Jalen Richard got a new deal. We're going to need a bruiser who can tote it 20 times a game....knock on wood that we won't need it, but always nice to have that insurance.

    It's more than just insurance in case of JJ getting injured. We need someone that can hammer in short yardage situations and help carry the load. Cant have JJ getting 30 carries a game and expect him to last for long.

    Gus Edwards would do very nicely.

    I know a little bit about Gus ... Was a Miami Hurricane then transferred to Rutgers. As a Cane fan , I liked the kid a lot . Just never really got a fair shot to play because of Duke Johnson and be a feature back. Then went to Rutgers and balled out . The knock on him at Miami was that he ran high and didnít run big - for being a big back.

    He has that long galloping stride which makes him look slower than he actually is .

    Props to him for working on his game - lowering his pad level and getting that forward lean to his running form . You can tell he has worked on it bigtime compared to how he ran at Miami .

    Would be a good cheap backup running back . Iíd would like to draft a young back like in the 5th or 6th round.... The kid I love in that spot is McFarland from Maryland. Homerun threat and runs hard.

    would we rather have this guy than a late round rookie?

    Edwards, 6-1 238, 2 years experience. The only thing is, he's an ERFA.

    ...and you have a good idea what you're getting in Gus.....vs 5th round or lower rookie....which is what we need behind JJ...and in compliment with Richard.
