The New York Giants listed running backs David Wilson, and Andre Brown as co-starters. David Wilson was expected to be the starter from the start, but it appears that Andre Brown will get some work next season as well. Although the depth-chart is unofficial, this is defiantly a Tom Coughlin move.
David Wilson ran for 358 yards last season and four touchdowns. He stepped in for the injured Ahmad Bradshaw, and exemplified why he was chosen in the first round just a year ago. Wilson will more than likely receive the bulk of the carries, and wind up with the “starter” label. The stretch he put together at the end of last season demonstrated that he has some serious potential as a starting running back in the NFL.
On the other hand, Andre Brown is going to give Wison a run for his money for the starting gig. Brown is expected to obtain all short yardage work as well as goal line carries. Last year for the G-men he rushed for 385 yards, and 8 touchdowns. While he also showed potential last year, it seems to be David Wilson’s job to lose.
