We played without our 3rd down back all year.
Harris was injured at times.
So, OF COURSE, you would expect significant contributions from Kevin Harris and Strong. Based on that, we could expect a solid RB corps.
Do you think that Kevin Harris and Strong showed so much that we are set at RB.
Isn't Strong considered a 3rd down back?
Has Harris showed so much that we consider him our #2 back with no need of competition, and no need for another back.
Pierre Strong came on strong towards the end of the season after having a stupid running into the punter gaffe earlier in the season. Kevin Harris definitely looks like a ramming-between-the-tackles back to me.
The fact of the matter is that Rham is now actually an all down RB, IMO. Damien Harris was spelling him for every other drive...and he was better between the tackles, IMO....but nothing that we can't replicate with Kevin Harris. As for the 3rd down back, sure Pollard would be a better option than counting on Pierre Strong, but also FAR MORE EXPENSIVE.
So, $$$-wise...it is a non-starter. Roll with Rham...and see if Strong/Harris can back him up. Also, do not forget about Ty Montgomery and/or JJ Taylor...
