Can I get a what, what?
OK, so James turned in a good postseason performance for the Arizona Cardinals last January, but this move makes no sense.
At 31, James is not an every-down runner like he was. Meanwhile, at 28, Duckett is one of the best short-yardage running backs in the NFL.
In 2008, James had three touchdowns, 514 yards, and 24 first downs. Duckett had eight touchdowns, 172 yards rushing and 26 first-downs.
Keep in mind, however, that James had his yards in a high-flying offense with open lanes, while Duckett earned his stats the hard way.
If the Cincinnati Bengals are reading this, take a look at Duckett, because your team needs another running back and Duckett would be a great fit.
