  Redskins | Four young RBs might see increased role    Thu Mar 10, 02:28 AM

The Washington Redskins have four young running backs, Andre Brown, James Davis, Shawnbrey McNeal and Chad Simpson, who might compete for more responsibilities in 2011, reports Gary Fitzgerald, of Redskins.com.

Footballguys view: Ryan Torain ran with great power and revived his career in 2010, but his injury history means the Redskins need to completely explore the other options on their roster to see if they need to bring in better depth through the draft or free agency.

  Bills | Joique Bell and Chad Simpson could stick    Mon Aug 16, 03:36 AM

Buffalo Bills RBs Joique Bell and Chad Simpson have a better chance making the team's final roster due to injuries to RBs Fred Jackson (hand) and Marshawn Lynch (ankle), reports Mark Gaughan, of The Buffalo News.

Footballguys view: The Bills backfield has been hit hard by the injury bug so Simpson and Bell might have a better shot of making the team. Bell is a very instinctive runner who racked up huge yardage at Wayne State. However, he lacks the burst to be an elite runner at the NFL level. Simpson can help out as a running back and a special teams player.

  Bills | Several expected to considered for kick returner job    Thu Jul 15, 04:05 PM

Buffalo Bills RB Fred Jackson, CB Leodis McKelvin, WR Roscoe Parrish, RB Chad Simpson, RB C.J. Spiller and RB Joique Bell are expected to be candidates for the team's kick returner job during training camp, according to BuffaloBills.com's Tony Jones.

Footballguys view: Spiller is the most dangerous player on this list, and the Bills will find plenty of ways to get the football in his hands. He'll play as a running back, slot receiver, and kick returner this year. Whenever Spiller has the football in his hands it is edge of your seat football, and Bills fans should be in for a real treat this year watching Spiller play.

  Bills | Chad Simpson may need return duties to stick    Sun May 16, 01:45 PM

  Bills | Lynch's days numbered in Buffalo    Sun May 16, 11:47 AM

Bob Matthews, from DemocratandChronicle.com, reports this week's signing of running back Chad Simpson by the Buffalo Bills made it all the more likely that the Buffalo Bills will trade Marshawn Lynch before the 2010 season starts. That's assuming the Bills can find a taker, and it is difficult be believe that no team is interested.

Footballguys view: Simpson could win the job as the team's number one kick returner, and his special teams play may push Lynch out the door. Ever since the Bills selected RB C.J. Spiller in the first-round of the 2010 NFL Draft there has been speculation that Lynch was on his way out of town. Bills GM Buddy Nix recently stated that Marshawn Lynch was going to stay in Buffalo, but with Simpson coming on board it may have changed his mind. It's not likely the Bills will get much in return for the veteran running back who is in need of a change of scenery.
