From Rotoworld:



ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Packers are expected to re-sign free agent James Starks to a two-year contract.
Starks visited the Steelers on Monday and reportedly had two other teams interested in him. After rushing for 493 yards and three scores on 89 carries (5.5 YPC), it's a little surprising the 28-year-old couldn't find a team to offer him a chance to compete for a bigger role. In Green Bay, he'll return as the No. 2 behind Eddie Lacy, leaving DuJuan Harris and Johnathan Franklin fighting for scraps.

Love it.

Scuba_Steve747, check out the "News" link on the upper left. You can bring a topic into the forum by clicking discuss. Might save ya a second or two on the copy/paste. Thanks for bringing this up though. I was actually just wondering about him lol.

I think Jermichael Finley will be next.

I like bringing Starks back. I votes is Lacy, Starks, Franklin and then Harris. Franklin to move up the depth chart down the line.

What has Dujaun Harris done that automatically puts him in front of Franklin? Should be an interesting battle for the 3rd running back. Or maybe we keep 4 of them and just have a hammer for a fullback.

I'm mildly happy about this. I hope it doesn't cost DuJuan Harris a spot. Franklin I have a low opinion of, but I see quality in Harris. This basically insulates the Packers against injury at the RB position.

Assuming Franklin's "neck injury" isn't career ending.

I can almost guarantee Franklin will come back next year and make a statement.

I don't understand this signing. We have all sorts of depth at RB, we sign Starks and let Jones sign with Oakland? What the hell.

You can never have too much stability with injuries and unexpected dips in performance (e.g. Burnett). Assuming this is a reasonable contract, I see nothing wrong with having 4 competent bodies who have proven capable of getting the job done. I wish we could say the same about our WRs, safeties, and center right now.

I think it's a reaction to how topsy turvy the RB depth has been the past few years. I think it was back at the end of the 2012 there was an article where it talked about how half the time Rodgers couldn't call any of the audibles he wanted because the RB position was such a revolving door and guys didn't know the blocking assignments, routes etc on the plays.

Plus a backup role to Lacy seems to serve Starks well as the their running style really meshed at times last year. Lacy wears them down and Starks mops up. All we need is for either Franklin or Harris to become a pass catching/3rd down back that this offense sorely needs and hasn't had since Brandon Jackson.
