    I do not know what the standard is, I recall reading a year or so ago 5 grand was an incentive to at least keep guys interested and an incentive if they were not drafted. Do not know if all teams offered this. I'm sure some guys get more interest but if offered anything and they see it's a better opportunity then that's enough bait for them to sign.

    Oh I agree totally

    But in the grand scheme $15k is peanuts and making it a headline as biggest ever just seems overkill

    It’s raining, I’m just grumpy

    I really want to give the RBs some mercy as the Oline was just that bad. That said there definitely needs to be some new look in that room. Other than Harris nearly every back just looked pathetically slow last year.

    I noticed that at first too, but that might just be to dazzle someone with less skeptical eyes at first. There were some other runs with good cuts in there. Also some good field vision too while choosing good running angles once he had some space.

    I’m hoping like all of us that our free agent signings will change the O-line for the better and at least these backs can have a chance to get skinny and run through some holes. If they bounce off tackle this kid seems to have the get away sticks for some decent long ones.

    GEEZZZZ!
    I hope We don't see 2 much of that this year. Last year it happened way 2 many freaking times. Surely the OL is better this year. At least I hope it is.:thumbs_up:

    Lindsay hasn't done anything since he showed something early in his Broncos career, there are better free agent RBs out there.

    Outstanding! Big Kenny in arguably the most famous car drove. And built.

    To be fair to him, it was tough sledding behind that line last year. That said, with Durant you get younger, cheaper and faster.

    Is why I like him....I don't want another Melvin Ingram situation. I want a clear back up that has shown he can play, and should not cost a much as some others

    Yes, Jaylen Warren from Oklahoma State had a big year for the Cowboys rushing for over 1,200 yards and 11 TD's. I wouldn't be surprised if both UDFA's made the team in place of McFarland and Edmunds.

    Except Lindsay isn't any good, he wouldn't beat out Snell for the backup role.

    Or is this all we get

    Guys, what's the deal here?
    They are highlights but this guy looks like he can play.
    I would assume it's size ( he seems on the smaller end ) but that looks like some great contact control, an amazing burst, and a disregard for what's in my way.

    I agree with your Lindsay opinions. I bet he'd quickly cement as number 2.

    Matteo Durant is 5'11" and weighs 196 but he runs a blazing 4.38. The other UDFA Jaylen Warren is only 5'8" but he weighs 215 and runs a 4.55 forty.

    McFarland is a wasted draft pick. He is rarely used and when he is, nothing positive happens.
