For a team that is at its best when running the ball, saying that your workhorse back will "hopefully" get back to form is pretty damn risky. Not to mention that he'll probably never be fully healthy again. The shelf life for running backs is absurdly short, and he's always taken a lot more punishment than the average back.
Bradshaw had surgery on both ankles last year. He'll probably be more or less himself for another couple years, but he can't be the #1 option if you want to compete.
As I said already, Brown is trying to come back from a ruptured Achilles. It's entirely possible that he never makes it back.
Gartrell Johnson has high upside? Ok, if that's what you want to believe.
