Honestly, as likeable as he Dunbar is, it has been hard to maintain any excitement about him as a player. He spends as much time off the field as on it so I am glad we have moved on. I’m excited to see how the backfield will take shape in 2017. Had hoped we would take a run at Rex Burkhead but I think there are some late round guys in the draft that can get the job done.
