Read here from PFT.
Now, let me preface this by acknowledging this guy has an injury history (which TT and MM despise) and he has underperformed in the NFL. And, we definitely have other positions we should be thinking about ahead of RB. Ok, got that out of the way.
But why not package some picks (and maybe a throw-in like Poppinga) for McFadden. Here’s why. Anyone who saw this guy play in college or witnessed a few of his flashes of brilliance in the NFL knows this guy is freakishly talented. He is a terrific runner, has great awareness and instinct, but more than anything as far as the Packers would be concerned, he’s a great pass catcher. He’s multi-talented and could perhaps add a Wildcat option to the Pack’s offense. He’s a different style runner than Grant and would complement him nicely. And if he’s not the every-down back, his injury risk may be reduced.
Chances are Oakland will be asking too much for him and end up not dealing him as a result. But I think it’s at least an intriguing possibility. (I also think if he does get dealt, he’ll likely end up in Dallas with his buddy Felix Jones because of Jerry Jones Arkansas fetish.)
