    I resign him.

    Re-sign him and try to limit the contract to 4 years.

    I'm hoping we can bring in a legit backup in the next year or two so that we can limit his carries to around 290-310.

    That's what I'm hoping for too. He just seems to have "it".

    Adrian Peterson got a second contract, why would there be any question about Zeke getting one?

    We probably had one, but let him go to Cleveland so we could keep McFadden.

    All Jackson had was speed and not a whole lot else. You can find RBs like him every year at the end of the draft or in UDFA. Not a big loss.

    At this point it shouldn't be a question.

    I'm betting Zeke gets an extension after three years.

    Has the RB mindset changed at the organizational level? I has been run the back until you wear them out and then find a new one.

    That attitude broke Marion Barber and it still hasn't changed
