Falcons | Expensive, Crowded Backfield

Len Pasquarelli reports for ESPN.com the drafting of Michigan State RB T.J. Duckett gave the Atlanta Falcons a rather expensive and crowded backfield. Duckett joins Warrick Dunn, Jamal Anderson and possibly Maurice Smith. If Anderson is retained, the Falcons could have over $13 million invested in three RBs in 2002. Coach Dan Reeves feels you "can never have enough running backs." Reeves now has more than enough backs, although the suspicion has to be that the Falcons don't feel Anderson will make it back from his second knee surgery in three years. Anderson allowed that he was "stunned" by the move. "I guess nothing surprises me anymore," said Anderson. "Maybe the handwriting is on the wall."
