Hypothetically speaking, if cap space wasn't an issue, who would you choose and why?

I would cut Zeke. He's nowhere near what he was his rookie season.

That's a tough one. 

Jaylon could still hypothetically regain his 2018 form. Maybe he's overthinking things with a new scheme and no real offseason. 

Running backs fall off fast. And I hate to say it, but Zeke looks done. So, I guess I'd cut him.

Zeke pretty easy. Pollard is a good back and you can always find good running backs in the draft.

Jaylon. He hasn't been good in 2 years and looks completely lost.

Hard to not vote for Jaylon as he is completely lost on the field, but at least he still looks like he has some athletic abilities left. Zeke looks slow as hell. He’s not at all explosive. Think back to back seasons with 350+ touches has taken it out of him. I doubt he’s going to touch his previous stats ever again.

Jaylon has a higher chance of bouncing back and is less expensive, so probably Zeke. But I would look to trade before cutting either.

If Zeke isn’t fumbling, he’s a fine RB, and should continue to be. He’s way, way to expensive, but that is what it is.

Jaylon is just a travesty out there. A total liability that other teams take advantage of continually. I think he has played himself out of a job. Cut him and move on after he helps us to a top-2 draft pick.

Voted before I saw if cap space wasn't an issue.     If it is,   I'd cut Jaylon,   since we save a whopping $400k in cap space, whereas Zeke we lose almost $10mil in cap space.    I'd keep both guys for another year.

Honestly,  if we are able to get Lawrence or Fields in the draft,  and they are not complete busts,   these 2 players contracts won't matter.
