    Kevin, first off: thanks for taking our questions.

    Was there any discussion to bring in a veteran RB (Michael Turner, Cedric Benson, etc) to add to the backfield mix?

    There was no discussion of that sort. The coaching and personnel staff feel very strongly about the group that we have in place and they want to give them an opportunity to succeed. Daryl Richardson showed great potential last year, and we were very encouraged by what we saw from Isaiah Pead later in the season and throughout this entire offseason. We were fortunate enough to claim Ganaway at the cut down last year given that we wanted to draft him in the 2012 draft, and with a full year of the offense under his belt he should be primed to go for training camp. Another veteran who will get a long look is Chase Reynolds, who has been on our practice squad the past two years but is very versatile. Finally, the draft brought us Zac Stacy, a gifted back who led the SEC in yards per carry, and his counterpart Benny Cunningham from just down the road at MTSU, who should be ready to go in time for the preseason. It should be a spirited competition but we think we have a lot of good pieces in place that just need an opportunity.
