So it looks like with the emergence of DeMarco Murray the Cowboys have released Tashard Choice. I think this might be a guy we should give a look. He has had some solid games for the Cowboys in the past, but for some reason just never did pan out much there in that crowded backfield.
He is also friends with Calvin Johnson since they played at Tech together, so I'm sure Calvin would like to at least see his friend get a workout for a team that's looking for more help at running back. This summer I saw Calvin and Tashard walking down the street together in Atlanta, so they are obviously still close.
Friends with our star receiver aside, I'd still like to see Tashard get a shot to help make this team better at the RB position and maybe get his career regoing back here in Detroit since he's just 26, with low mileage, catches the ball and packs a 220lb body in a 5-10 frame.
In the last 4 games of his rookie year when Dallas used him extensively he did grab 325yds on 62 carries 5.2avg and 2TDs along with 17 receptions and 163yds. Thats solid for 4 games work if we can get him back to that with a change of scenery and young hungry team with Calvin in his face telling him to get it done.
