Here are some initial projections, although it's too early in some respects to speculate. Still, it's fun to do......Buffalo- McGahee will still be featured. Miami- Williams and Brown will again split carries like they did this yearNew England- Dillon will be retained and the Pats will add another back to groom for 2007. Faulk will continue to be the back in passing situations. New York Jets- Martin will be in a platoon situation with someone new. Maybe a rookie or a free agent. Baltimore- Chester Taylor will be re-signed to a solid, but modest contract and given a year to see if he can be featured. Cincinnati- Rudi will remain the featured back with Perry spelling him for 6-10 carries a game. Cleveland- Droughns will be featured. Pittsburgh- Willie Parker will split time with another RB (Bettis-like). Jamal Lewis maybe??Houston- Reggie Bush will get the bulk of the carries as a rookie. Domanick Davis will be dealt on draft day for a third rounder. Indianapolis- Will look to add a versatile RB like Domanick Davis or Ahman Green. Edge will go elsewhere. Jacksonville- I look for Edgerrin James to wind up here. Taylor will be released and Greg Jones will continue to get some carries. Tennessee- Chris Brown will again be featured with at least one RB brought in to compete with he and Henry (if Henry is retained).Denver- Committee approach for one more year. If Bell does not become a prime featured back by season's end, they will look to add a solid RB in 2007.Kansas City- Larry Johnson will be featured. How can he not be?Oakland- Lamont Jordan will be featured. San Diego- LaDainian Tomlinson will be featured. Dallas- Julius Jones will be featured with Barber again vulturing some goal-line carries. NY Giants- Tiki Barber will be featured. Philadelphia- Westbrook and Moats will be the primary RB tandem as Philly addresses other needs in the offseason.Washington- Portis will be featured with Betts stealing some carries. Chicago- Thomas Jones and Cedric Benson will split carries. If Benson looks good, the Bears will have to make a decision after 2006 about who to continue with.Detroit- Kevin Jones will be featured (can he stay healthy?)Green Bay- I think Green Bay is in prime position to snag a top RB in the draft. Gado is a nice story, but they need more from the position. Minnesota- Another team who will look to add a RB in the draft....maybe someone who can platoon with Bennett or Moore...or maybe a feature back. Atlanta- Warrick Dunn will be featured with a veteran brought in to compete with him for some of his carries. They won't want Dunn to go over 20 carries a game very much. Carolina- I think Foster will be retained. Some think Carolina will draft a RB high or acquire a solid free agent....I see other needs as more pressing. New Orleans- McAllister will be featured provided he is healthy. Tampa Bay- Cadillac will be featured.Arizona- New RB needed. Someone who can run between the tackles...with Dennis Green's history, a first round pick is a big possibility. St. Louis- Steven Jackson will be featured. San Francisco- I think it will be a committee approach again as SF has other needs more pressing than RB to address in the off-season.Seattle- I think Alexander re-signs and is featured. If for some reason, he doesn't, I could see Alexander in Jacksonville or Minnesota and Seattle would likely try out Morris + a veteran complement (Fred Taylor?). Any thoughts on how it will all shake out?
