 In college Willis McGahee became one of the most collegiate running backs in Miami football history. Getting over, 1700 yards rush and over 15 TDs. He overcame a severe knee and the Bills took him with the 23rd pick in the 03 draft. In his second year in he ran for over a thousand. Then a few years later Baltimore gave up a high draft to get him from the Bills, however is just 3 seasons he is no longer the starter. He has been dethroned in Baltimore as their main guy. Playing backup as if he is some aged vet; he is only 28 years old and every time he is put in the game he is productive.

 What has happened to Willis McGahee? He a physical back that has run for over a thousand yards a few times plus he catches and blocks well.  He did struggle in ‘08, however I see this coming down to money because Willis and Ray Rice are very similar in play, but Wills makes a lot more than Rice. If Baltimore doesn’t want or feel that that Willis is no longer a starter then they should looking at trading him. There are some teams that could really use his help. Teams like the Bucs, Lions, and Seahawks are just a few.
