BenJarvus Green-Ellis and Danny Woodhead have been extremely underrated this season. No one expected much from them this season—Woodhead wasn’t even on the opening day roster—but they have been extremely productive. They have complemented each other well, and their skills have really balanced out the offense.
The situation is that BGE, Kevin Faulk, Sammy Morris and Fred Taylor will all be free agents at the end of the season. BGE has earned not only an extension, but a shot at competing for the starting job—but does the front office believe he’s the long-term answer, especially if other teams are willing to pay him for his services?
Faulk and Taylor have battled injuries this year and are nearing, if not already reached, the end of their careers.
It’s hard to believe that all of them will return, so depth will be an issue. And the team could look to go in a different direction with their starting running back, regardless of whether they bring back BGE or not.
