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.
And it's entirely possible that Kenny Phillips never returns to form or even returns, and that hasn't stopped you from criticizing picking up Jones. You can't justify picking up a running back because of injuries and then criticize a pick used on a safety for the same exact reason. That's a major contradiction.
