A backfield that looked to be somewhat shaky behind Rashard Mendenhall before training camp began has some length and depth to it.
Isaac Redman is a brute, a big, tough runner who can block, catch, shed tackles and take punishment. He is the clear No. 2 entering this season and could handle the job if Mendenhall were injured.
Redman is a guy to pick up if you have a deep roster and can carry Menenhall's handcuff.
