I remember he was trying to strike a deal in FA last year before settling and coming back our way. Did we sign him to a 1 year contract? Or a multiyear deal? This dude plays his heart out and just curious of the possibility of him and Quizz being our 1, 2 punch next year.

I would like to see what snelling does with a larger role in the offense, but we definitely need a future number 1 hb.

Im a Snelling fan, he has always been ok. A good "3rd Back"...

He's the most versatile back we've got. He can lead block, catch, and run (fairly well)

I don't think we believe he's more than a role player/ special team player due to the amount if carries he's been given over the years. I like him just not sold he's what we need.

He was a fullback in college a Virginia I believe.

He's a security blanket.  Solid contributor, but isn't a world beater.  If he was, he'd be starting.  For another team.  It spoke volumes to me when he wasn't signed by anyone else.  No saying he's not a good player, but as a fan base we appreciate him more for his grit and lunch pail ways than for the fact he is just a contributor, nothing more.

Ah wow I was off a year then. And 3 years is good. I realize he wouldn't be a feature role, but with him and Quizz sharing carries? I just feel like they make a good 1,2 punch without needing to make either one of them a real "feature" back.

That's the key word. 'Versatile'

He provides depth since he can line up at RB or FB and he catches the ball out of the backfield.

He plays special teams and plays multiple positions effectively.

These are the kinds of guys you build a winning team with.

I've thought if we brought in a Reggie Bush you could do so much more with Snelling.

Say for example we come out in a 3 WR set with a RB and FB with Snelling as the FB and Bush as the RB.

Before the snap Bush moves/flexes out as a WR and Snelling becomes the RB.  Now we essentially have a 4 WR set with a linebacker trying to cover Bush in space.

This is what I would like to have if TG retires.

Sounds great in theory anyway.

That's something that can at least be fixed. Unless you're YKW.

Snelling is a jack of all trades master of none.  I would not want him lead blocking for more than a few surprise type plays out of pass formations for example.

He is the equivalent of a utility infielder. Serviceable and under valued.

Think Martin prado. He is very good as a utility guy but give him a full time role and you will be slightly underwhelmed. I like the guy but he is not a feature back.

that's why I want guys like bush and percy harvin, both are 3 players in 1.

He's a very good role player that I think would diminish with more touches.

Snelling seemed to come in at a lighter weight during the past season. With the fullback problems we had this yr id like to see him pack the weight back on so we can use him more at fullback
along with hb later on in games. Also with snelling being a pass catching threat it would be nice to see him and quizz in the backfield at the same time

He should get more opportunities at running back.

Snelling is a versitile Back.
He is not a feature RB, but still to valuable to cut.
