Who's Left? - Running Back

Bears GM Jerry Angelo promised that there would be competition at every position.  He neglected to tell us that he has no intention to create that competition through Free Agency.  Technically, if he tells Cedric Benson and Adrian Peterson that they are both in the running for the starting job, that is competition.

Either way here are the remaining running backs available.  Obviously, the elephant in the room is Marion Barber III.  He is the best on the board, but also the most expensive.  He will require multiple draft picks and big deal.  The Bears showed interest in Chris Brown last year before he resigned with the Titans, perhaps they will revisit him.

Derrick Ward of the Giants is an interesting choice.  He definitely is a different kind of runner and having his speed back there would be nice.

Anybody else here you'd like to see the Bears make a run at?
