Running back Boston Scott (New Orleans, 2018) helped save the 2019 season and is going to be a big part of things moving forward in the backfield. Placekicker Jake Elliott (Cincinnati, 2017) was signed off the Bengals' practice squad in 2017 and has, of course, been terrific. Maybe they just stay put and hope the player they take works out.
