The Old Guys – Maybe the cheapest
Mark Ingram (32) – He’ll most likely be looking for a team that can offer him a starting spot. But trying to find a team that fits that mold will be difficult. Having Ingram on the field will help the offense disguise their play.
Adrian Peterson (36) – AP’s on record as wanting to play to break Emmitt Smith’s all-time rushing record. AP is still able to play in the NFL but it’s far less effective than in his heyday. The Chargers finished 28th last year with 12 rushing touchdowns. AP can help boost that total.
Frank Gore (38) – If the league marvel’s at Tom Brady’s ability to play so long then the league needs to marvel at Gore. A running back takes far more punishment than a QB. Yet, here’s Gore still producing for NFL teams.
