Backfield Competition Should Be Intense

With no Chris Polk on the scene, this spring promises to be highly competitive at the all-important running back position. Polk's absence, due to a shoulder rehab, will open up the tailback position with Johri Fogerson and Demitrius Bronson probably starting out at the top, but it will be real interesting if they can hold off the two youngsters, Deontae Cooper and Jesse Callier.
