There's a lot of energy being expended here dissecting minutia.
The guy is a veteran back with receiving ability, and he's immediately stepping into a full-time, feature role (not a job share, though Alstott will get short-yardage calls).
Sure, the offense is lame, but how many feature backs are available in week 4?
If you need one, grab him. If you have strength and depth at RB, pass.

Not screaming, like the passengers in his car.
