Current Running Backs: Clinton Portis, Ryan Torain, Keiland Williams, James Davis, Andre Brown
Throughout the last decade, which NFL team has become notorious for throwing millions of dollars at veterans of questionable value?
Answer: Daniel Snyder's Washington Redskins.
That alone isn't enough to lead Addai to the capital city, but it's part of the reason he might end up there.
For one, Clinton Portis' days have to be numbered: he's been a great player for almost a decade, but this most recent abdominal muscle tear might be the end of the line.
He only played five games this year and has been sidelined with concussions, hand and shoulder injuries in recent seasons.
In his place, Ryan Torain was pretty good, but was he good enough to satisfy the patron saint of the zone blocking scheme, Mike Shanahan?
Even if Washington does put their faith in Torain or one of the other young backs, they should invest in a veteran like Addai. After Portis, their isn't a back on the roster older than 24.
Shanahan was able to turn almost anyone (Olandis Gary, Mike Anderson, Reuben Droughns, Tatum Bell) into a 1,000-yard runner during his stay in Denver. With Addai, who has tremendous athleticism when healthy, he should be able to do the same.
