I still think he is our best option as a 3rd down back because Rainey is so easily destoyed. Based on what he has done this year, he might not demand that much as a FA. As long as he gets coached up properly to carry the ball more securely

So was the dropped pass yesterday. I didn't like the fact that he did his best Limas Sweed imitation after that drop either.

Just seems to tremendously limit the run game options.
Maybe Goodell can make that call. Sanders might be deemed a repeat offender.
