The other topic of his got moved away from the Main Tank. Anyone thinks he serves a suspension and plays next year?

ESPN's Adam Schefter confirms "multiple teams" are interested in signing free agent RB Kareem Hunt.

This echoes a similar report filed by NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Hunt is facing a lengthy suspension for multiple off-field discretions, most notably a physical altercation with a woman outside his Cleveland hotel last February. His punishment should be decided before free agency opens in March and according to Schefter, the 23-year-old shouldn't struggle for interest on the open market. Bears coach Matt Nagy has already said he'd be open to reuniting with Hunt, who he coached while serving as the Chiefs' offensive coordinator in 2017. The league's leading rusher last season, Hunt has undergone daily anger management counseling since late November and teams have reportedly been pleased by the progress he's made. Schefter was told by one league source that Hunt will return to the NFL "sooner rather than later," though he'll need to be reinstated from the commissioner's exempt list before that can happen.

Yeah, makes total sense. They definitely don't have a solid running game right now.

If you think Sony isn't great, you need your eyes checked. The only things that can stop him from being the best RB the Pats have ever had are his knees.

But he's no Kareem Hunt. Nor does he have Hunt's positive locker room presence.

Maybe you can refresh my memory, but I don't recall any plays this year that would make me think that he's great. He doesn't seem all that fast, elusive or powerful, but seems to be a well-rounded back and good at getting what is blocked. Better than Curtis Martin (no) or Corey Dillon (doubt it) though?

This link (not sure how accurate?) shows Michel forced the 5th-least broken tackles among RB's from this past year:
Alfred Blue
James White
Jordan Howard
Doug Martin
Sony Michel

What filters are you using on that list, because it shows no such thing.

Sony was a higher rated recruit than either Martin or Dillon. He is a very special talent. He was a top 15 overall recruit in his class. He just ended up at a school that happened to have a couple of other tremendous RB talents during his time there, which stifled his numbers a bit, but he still averaged over 6 ypc in the SEC. UGA is cranking out NFL RB talent like the 'Canes did in the late 90's/early 00's.

Probably the only thing I can think of as a positive about Mark Davis as an owner is that he will not tolerate having "men" who abuse women on his team. No way in hell he goes to the Raiders.

Davis put up with all of Aldon Smith's drug and alcohol nonsense until he slapped his chick around, and then he was gone the next day. Ray McDonald also tried to get a tryout with the Raiders, Del Rio wanted to give him a look and Davis vetoed it.
