Who replaces Barkley on the active roster?

GeofromNJ : 9/20/2020 9:37 pm
Do they promote Rod Smith who's 28, 6'3", but nothing special? Bring back Javon Leake whom they thought well of during camp? Claim another team's practice squad player? Sign a street player? Sandro Platzgummer is not eligible for the active roster this year.

Leake didn't even make it to the last round of cuts. I'm not sure where this "they thought well of him" narrative is coming from.

Rod Smith looked special when he played against us.

But we do have a way of making guys look better than they actually are. Having said that, I'm excited to see him get a chance. He is a big bruising back which we haven't seen in a while.
Next man up would be

Rod Smith....?
Earlier today, Wayne Gallman was a healthy scratch.

So far as "active" goes, it's his turn to be a #1 RB.

I hope he steps up into the role. He's an FA next year, so he's got to be VERY motivated to earn himself some dough.

Anyone they bring is going to need to get up to speed

So Lewis and Gallman are obvious to step in with Rod Smith being called up from PS. I think Leake gets signed to the practice squad.

If the Giants sign a vet, they are going to have to add him to the active roster and you cant really expect a lot of contribution right away.

So if you sign a vet you run the risk of making him inactive for the week where as with Smith you could roll three deep. I doubt Judge wants two active RBs again.
