Lumpkin Beats Out Cadillac — Again

November 27th, 2012

The 2011 Bucs didn’t win a game after Kregg Lumpkin replaced Earnest Graham

In what feels like a cruel joke on Giants fans (which is a good thing), the Super Bowl champs signed former Bucs running back Kregg “The Great” Lumpkin off the street today.

Per The Star-Ledger, Lumpkin beat out some big yet over-the-hill names looking for work.

The Giants selected Lumpkin after working out a handful of veteran running backs today, including Ryan Grant, Cadillac Williams and Ryan Torain. They needed to bolster the position since Brown’s injury left the Giants with just two running backs on their roster, Ahmad Bradshaw and rookie David Wilson, plus fullback Henry Hynoski.

Lumpkin, 5-foot-11 and 228 pounds, was waived by Seattle in September. He’s played in 29 NFL games in his career

Joe thought it was cool that Cadillac Williams is still seeking employment, but it’s got to be a bummer for┬áCadillac to lose out to Lumpkin two seasons in a row. Raheem Morris said he wanted Cadillac back last season, but instead it appeared Raheem was overruled by rockstar general manager Mark Dominik, who made Lumpkin the Bucs’ No. 3 back. Cadillac went on to back up Stephen Jackson in St. Louis.

Joe suspects Lumpkin found a new home, in part, for his ability on special teams.

    I thought Lumpkin did a decent job for the Seahawks in the preseason, wish him well. Also hoping Cadillac finds work somewhere.

    Cadillac probably commands too much cash. He is awesome and I wish him well.

    Lumpkinberg sucks. I give him a week at most before he goes bye bye.

  6. Lion Says:

    Face it, no RB in the world could come back and be a force after the two gruesome injuries Caddy faced. Luck was clearly his enemy.
