It would mean one would block for the other who was running like I used to do in Madden back when I had an xbox.what would it mean for Leonard if Hillis gets a contract? I guess if i had to choose, i'd want Hillis to get a shot since he's younger and already had a great season once, proving he can get the job done. but under current regime in TB? doubtful at best.
hah, seriously, unless this guy is trying to create a new Dunn/Alstott, I doubt it means much. He would have to choose between 2 of his "fullbacks" unless he decides one can play te, or of an h-back (like they wanted to do with Hillis way back in the day, and I think he could play similar to a Dallas Clark type role in which he had his last few years), I am guessing he would go with Leonard who he is more familiar with, but I'd like Hillis to get on a roster (and not just because I stupidly decided to trade Jamaal Charles for him last year in fantasy). If any injuries were to happen, Hillis is the more proven, although I think Leonard could do it too. DWFS just like seeing Hillis more because he has a more bruising style that runs people over. People like the Leonard leap but Hillis can do that too. I hate when teams stack up with White talent at one position knowing many won't get playing time, but at this point Hillis just needs to get back in the league, play his role. Apparently last year for the Chiefs was not good enough to redeem himself.
People will speak of fumbles if Hillis ever did wind up with a shot again, but did anyone know this, the "great" Eric Dickerson had 49 fumbles in his first 4 seasons, which is what he is known for, thats around 12 per season, although it is skewed because one season was "only" 10 when he didn't play all 16 games. His high was 14 fumbles.
although, thinking about it, there could be something going on with Doug Martin, maybe they are worried about contract issues, not sure of his contract status. Get both of those guys, let it be like the Gehart situation, give them a few carries here and there. Then if Martin wants to moan and not participate next year because of a contract dispute just tell him that they will "give the ball to the White boys and be fine", which would be a bluff. It worked with AP, he couldn't find a way to stop fumbling, 18 in the 2 seasons before Gerhart, then it drops to like 1 or 2 after.
