The Jacksonville Jaguars continue to look to build depth on their roster, notably the running back position. The team is bringing in former Houston Texans running back Alfred Blue and former Chicago Bears running back/special teamer Benny Cunningham, according to reports.

Blue is a name that Jaguars fans should be familiar because he’s spent a few seasons with the Houston Texans in the AFC South. He’s more similar to Leonard Fournette in that he’s kind of a bruiser. Last season he had 150 carries for 499 yards.
Cunningham on the other hand has mostly been a special teams player for the Bears and Los Angeles Rams, never having more than 66 carries for the Rams and just a total of 20 carries in his two seasons with the Bears. Cunningham might be viewed as someone who can catch the ball out of the backfield however, as he has over 100 receptions in his career and more receiving yards than rushing yards.
