Joquie Bell

Despite Popular belief, Bell had a decent season last year. It was a tale of two halves. In the early going Bell struggled to get anything going and the running game woes were on full display whenever he took the ball. He snapped out of it in the second half of the season running for 547 yards and 4 touchdowns in the last 8 games. It’s not Pro Bowl caliber but it’s a nice turn around from the first 8 games. (313 yards and 3 touchdown)

Theo Riddick

Riddick was a nice little revelation last season as he showed he has some nice play making ability. unfortunately we learned that he may be better taking passes underneath and in the slot than anything else. So if you’re thinking Riddick will jump in for Reggie no problem, think again.

George Winn

Not much to say about George Winn. He was a preseason darling that got his shot due to injuries. He showed some promise in the short moments he was in the game. But I would expect Winn to return to a practice squad role. With a rookie presumably coming in, there just won’t be room for Winn on the main roster.
