?

I think it's either him or a draft pick.

(or both)

I just dont see us being able to continue with our current crop of backs.

Let's hope not.

He's still going on that 2010 season with the Browns. From there on out he's been little more than a locker room cancer, without any real production.

I don't think Benson will produce big time for us, but still, I'd rather have him than Hillis.

It would be a gigantic reach to think he could do anything for the Packers backfield. I consider him to be a Kuhn 2.0

Steven Jackson was the main free agent exception at this position, imo.

The Packers should focus on a runningback in the draft and could land a decent starter, even in round 3.

Agree with draft pick and players on current roster.

Packers have got to catch a break one of these years and have their rb's stay healthy!!!

Missing Jackson hurts, but overpaying for a guy who might not produce would hurt worse. The business end of the NFL sucks.

I'd look at Hillis, but only if he's willing to move to FB.

I can't see Hillis doing much better behind our OL than our current group--I just don't see him as much of an improvement, if any.
