    The Bears released Mike Davis. Given all the backfield injuries, this is a signing that would make a lot of sense IMO. He’s a sturdy, hard-nosed runner with some receiving chops.

    if it doesn’t mess up our comp pick formula, which is the reason the Bears released him, I say let’s do it.

    The guy who ran for over 500 yards and caught 34 balls for the Seahawks last year. Unless of course we have a hidden gem in the venerable Tony Brooks-James.

    Conner down
    Snell down

    We have Samuels, Trey Edmunds and Tony Brooks-James left. But by all means, let's auto-reply with this canned response any time someone recommends a free agent signing on this board.

    Yeah, I'm worried Conner is going to have a short career and it will be injury prone:(

    You obviously haven't been around long. I'll auto reply just as long as people auto, "this guy got released, let's bring him in!" It's been this way on here for years. Doesn't matter why someone gets released, whether the trade deadline has passed, whether the team has cap space, etc.

    People come up with the dumbest **** with the “bring this guy in” or “ kick the tires on this guy”
    There’s literally two or three of these post per week. And each person who starts these threads thinks they’re super scout and their guy is the guy.
    If the Steelers actually made even 10 percent of these moves the fans suggest they’d have a completely different team. And of course no one thinks about salary cap implications cause Im sure all these guys will play for the vet minimum or 1 year prove it deals.
    With that said. Sign him sign everyone.

    The trade deadline has passed? Wow, by the number of threads still wanting trades who could have known. Guess google is broken, or people are to lazy to read.

    We are pretty much scraping the bottom of the barrel with running back depth. No?

    One more injury and its going to be.....Sign someone.....Please sign somebody

    Im really not sure why its ridiculous to suggest that a guy like Mike Davis be signed. He has had some success in the league. He is a veteran, inexpensive, available, and a depth upgrade.

    Maybe you should read the thread again he isn't talking about a trade Davis was released and is open game.......but by all means keep posting about people not using google or to lazy to read when you obviously missed his post. Some of you guys crack me up......

    Naw why would we talk about signing a vet guy when our starter(Conner) and backup(Snell) are out Samuels is coming off injury and a guy we had on the practice squad is banged up? Oh add to that a guy in Brooks that we just signed from his couch? Would/should we want to add a player to help this team that has experience?

    It kills me how some people would rather bash a poster to bringing up a guy to sign. I mean we are not front office people we are fans on a message board.......this is what we do. Oh and then there is some who act like the salary cap is an issue(wish I wasn't put on ignore so I could respond to him) when he has no clue about it himself.......but wait I am sure we will see a ....WHO from him, smh. You don't need to be a "super scout" to see we are hurting at RB and there is vets out there who could help.

    @SteelersFanFromTX don't let some of these guys get you down, keep posting cause that is what you are suppose to do on a message board with other fans.......:thumbs_up:

    Glad I cracked you up, but you missed the part where I responded to another post. Beyond that the whole, 'let's sign (put any name here) just gets ridicules after awhile. So let's talk about Davis. In a b/u role he has had 1 decent year in 4, cut from a Bears team whose top RB has 400 yards and change in 8 games. Yes the Bears suck, perhaps Davis is the second coming of Fitzgerald Toussaint.

    I agree some time these posts are out of left field but holy cow this is by far not one of them. We are hurting at RB and just about any name is worth a look at that has experience. I get what you are saying about Davis however we are not looking for a guy to come in here and be a #1 or even a 2 we need a guy who can come in and offer something until our 1 and 2 get back. I would think a guy like Davis would offer more that a guy like Brooks-James at least from the stand point of experience and being able to get up to speed quicker. jmo

    Here's a thought. Get a FB because ours has played about 10 plays this season. We brought in a cut olb for a day to try. We brought back a totally useless lt Walton while we had a draft pick sitting here already we didn't use. We cut a wr and replaced him with nobody. But, yea we are good. We don't have to look for real players that might help us out. :cool:

    I guess I was being most facetious, but this makes sense over some of the moves. It obvious how important to the run game Nix has been, just in the one game he started. I do not know the options for FB out there, few teams even have a FB anymore. My question is how has the team been using Vanett? We constantly hear number 72 as an eligible receiver, which means they are bringing in an extra blocker.

    Why not develop some plays with 2 TE sets with on as an H back. To old school? hell nothing else is working in the run game.
