Cardinals sign RB James Conner to 1 year deal


Recommended Posts

I didn't realize he was a free agent but I agree it is a nice depth position. Steelers needed to upgrade badly but he wasn't awful. Just didn't work for them.

If he can stay healthy and gets behind a decent run blocking line, this could be a very good signing.

The part about him being healthy is unlikely though.

Still, love Conner and hope he can rejuvenate his career.

Connor is a good back

but he definitely benefited from the OLine and scheme that  Pitt had in the  LevBell-Franchise-Tag-Opt-Out year

other than that year, he hasnt really done much, whether that be due to injuries or ineffectiveness

idk if AZ is the right place to get the best out of him

He was significantly more effective last year when on the field than any of the other RB's the Steelers had. He actually managed over 4 YPC. He's a good blocker and receiver.

The issue is purely that he can't stay healthy. He's always dinged up...even during the off-season. You can't rely on him to be your bell cow and that's what the Steelers were doing. His touches need to be managed and he has to be paired with another quality RB. If I were the Steelers, I would have brought him back but Mike Tomlin doesn't do RB by committee. He wants a guy he can feed the ball to 20+ times a game for 16 games. He wants to run the wheels off his backs.
