Of course it probably depends on team situation and who is left in the draft, but...I don't think I can see giving a 2nd for him. I don't think the market will really develop for a banged-up committee back.
Now, it seems like Tolbert just really wanted to move back to the South where he's from, and if that's the case (and he's signed for a reasonable 2.1 mil per year) the signing makes more sense.
Almoste every RB in the NFL is a committee back now. Teams don't want to depend on 1 guy unless its Adrian Peterson.
I'd say you 'banged up' comments a bit of hyperbole, since he hasn't missed a game in over 2 years IIRC.
Spin it however way you want he rarely practices and it's because of his health.
And yet, he'll probably still outperform the RBs in this year's draft not named Richardson for the next 3 years. It's not like he's Hardesty or Moreno broken down.
So Stewart wouldnt be worth a late 2 or a 3rd to a team like Pittsburgh today? You proposing he has no trade value?
Ya I would say hes not worth a 2nd or 3rd to pittsburg. If that were a need I would rather have bush for the price. Pitt has way to many holes to fill than to spend a 2nd or 3rd on rb. Market is horrible right now, carolina wont get that.
