    Lol
    You 100% didn’t watch DJ last season
    That’s a fact
    You can cry and complain but the fact is DJ, other than getting just over $24,000 per yard per carry last season fell on arm tackles and had no heart
    Hate that I’m not a blow hard blind fan...but I’ll toss the facts

    To get what DJ got out of last year was beyond incredible. I’d worry about your two injured guys last year. DJ is going to be just fine barring injury.

    I would call and offer a sixth. But duke wants to be a starter...his issue in Cleveland is chubb and hunt taking touches. Of course here we could run single back and split dj to the slot...
    Yeah...offer a sixth and let them haggle to a fifth if you have to

    No I would not trade for him. Our RBs are fine

    Besides he keeps talking and they are just going to cut him anyway.

    I don’t think he wants to be the starter, I just think he wants more touches than he’s going to receive. He’s not going to get any once Kareem is off of suspension.

    You should find a different forum. Your nonsense of calling us blow hards because we wouldn't trade and elite talent for a mediocre back is a bad joke.

    4th or 5th rounder for Duke? Sure. Anything more than that? Not a chance in hell.

    Last year the Chargers, Chiefs and Steelers all lost their top two backs and didn’t miss a beat. Duke is an all around back. Foster looked good until getting injured but can he be the guy if our top two backs go down?

    This offense appears to be one that is going to get the ball in our playmakers hands. He has averaged 60 receptions a year and when given the opportunity has averaged nearly 5 ypc. He did this on a terrible Browns team.

    The one unknown factor is just how good the other backs in camp appear ready to make the team. I’ll take Duke for a sixth right now.

    Confusion might be a nice thing!
    KK just said people forget he was the offensive coordinator for the top rushing college team in 2012! Duke Johnson would be a huge upgrade behind DJ - we could trade any back they want behind DJ and a 4th round pick - and would have a huge upgrade at the position.

    I agree with the logic, but lack your certainty.
