    I wouldn't trade Jacobs. He doesn't have to play every play. He's a valuable back. He proved his worth last year at crunch time, especially with a questionable Oline.

    If he plays well, then why trade him?

    I think the only way he gets traded is for a high pick, 1st or 2nd and i am not sure if anyone is giving that up these days for a rb.. They will get a 3rd if someone pays him for a comp pick

    I forgot about the team option, good point.

    Looking up the team option for Jacobs, it was $8 million for next year. This year, fournette and conners signed for $7 million per year. Looks like those were the two highest totals. Considering those numbers, I think not picking up the option for Jacobs has more to do with the financial side. Why pay him $8 million when the best FA RBs are getting less. So even if he had a great season and was the best FA next year- he still might not get the $8 million per year.

    If all goes well, I think he might be here again next year. Just for less than the $8 million.

    I doubt hes back. I think going forward we will draft a RB in rounds 3-5 every year and it will be next one up. Then try and max comp picks.

    With the RB by committee approach and with more games played I can see them drafting a RB every 2-3 years. Keep fresh legs back there on cheap deals.

    Trade Josh for Roquan. Can always find a productive running back
