Tuesday Trivia: Running Backs Who Have Played for Both Dallas and Washington
The Cowboys drafted Tashard Choice in the fourth round of the 2008 draft at a time when the Cowboys already had Marion Barber and had just drafted Felix Jones. It looked for a time as if Choice might become a viable starter. He had three straight solid games at the end of his rookie season and finished the year with 472 yards.
However, that turned out to be his best season in Dallas. He had a few opportunities to fill in because of injuries, but overall, he struggled. His fumble in the opening game of the 2010 season was costly, and he fumbled against both the Patriots and the Rams. He suffered a hamstring injury late last week, which prompted the team to let him go on Saturday.
The Redskins were reportedly the only team to put in a waiver claim, and he might play against the Cowboys when the teams face off on November 20.
Assuming he does play, he will become the seventh running back in history to have played for both the Cowboys and the Redskins.
