Any thoughts on Ron Dayne?

I think all of you have good points about Dayne. I also think he believed his press clippings out of college to much. He found out the NFL is different. I also agree that a new team might make a huge difference in his play. Lumm is right about his style, to me he\'s more of a 3 yards in a cloud of dust runner. This guy could be a player given a new chance, will it be the Saints? There are a lot of rumors to that effect but just as many about the Giants keeping him.

I\'m not sure but I would guess the veteran minimum. If he is released. And at this time I\'d say that\'s a big if.

Ron Dayne doesnt impress me much. He was the 11th overall pick in 2000, and hasnt done anything. I think Fenderson and Keaton are much better answers as backups.

By Gatoman---If we could get him that would be nice but when you factor in cost and compensation this deal just isn\'t possible.
Then who would it be a good deal for? And he did lose some weight in the off season. But how do you know it improved his game? There have been no games played yet. And the Saints coaches must be worried about our back-up running backs, because they tried to sign Thomas Jones from Arizona and they ARE going after Dayne.


And I\'ve heard no one that actually knows the asking price for Dayne or the compensation...Where are you getting this information from?

Ron Dayne is one of those runners that has to turn the ball up field quickly to be effective. If he runs parallel to the line he is easy to bring down,similar to Alstott,or R. Williams. The only use I could see for him is goal line use. But people under estimate Deuce size all of the time. I don\'t think he is coming to N.O.

I have to agree with BillyC here (I owed you one back), that just because the Saints are sniffing around running backs makes me think another will come on the roster. Whether it\'s a big name like Dayne or another project, their interest bears note.

Jamal Anderson and Ricky Waters are two RBs that may just jump on with the Saints. Anderson has totally rehabed his knees and he will definitely find a spot on an NFL roster this season. Ricky Waters has been out of football for a while, but if he will drop his price tag teams would stand in line for him.

I have a thought about Ron Dayne, He fat, slow, dumb and oh yeah, he sucks!!! Why dont we try to get Cecil Collins pardoned and get him to play! Ron Dayne couldnt run over most high school defenses, he doesnt realize with his weight he should run straight ahead or even block someone once in a while, but no he thinks he\'s barry sanders. It would be a big mistake for any team besides the Dallas Cowgirls to sign him.
