Re: Is pierre tradeable?

NO way. he is cheap and he maybe productive enough to become our #3 and replace stecker next year. Never know he may become a solid #2. My point right now is the bang for the buck view point, it would be silly. You can not get any more cap friendlier than him.

ah i hate when ppl talk about replacing stecker....over the past several seasons he has arguably been our most consistant back....look at it this way...duece gets hurt annually and needs a backup....antwan was there a few years ago but he split carries with...stecker....stecker was there last year and helped return kicks even...he is a ST team captain and is very important to our 3 RB sets that have become increasingly apparent in our new offense

Re: Is pierre tradeable?

Being that he has barely accomplished anything or was drafted, I wouldn't think we'd get practically anything back in return for Pierre's services. Even if we could possibly fetch a 7th rounder for him, what's the point? We're better off keeping him. Even if he to goes off and have a Ryan Grant type season, why would we want to trade something like that away?

I wouldn't even consider trading PT right now. Even if Deuce comes back 100%, his durability will be in question. Stecker isn't getting any younger, so it would be wise to keep young, fresh legs in the backfield in case of injury to one of our backs.

Re: Is pierre tradeable?

i would love for pierre to become our RB because that means he stepped up and became a great threat in our run game.....i just dont see it happening but i do think ur argument is valid....he did his job for the minimum last year...i just dont want hafta see him this year cuz that means duece is still hurt

Hey canton I like stecker but at the young age of 32 don't you think it is time to at least consider a replacement. Really?

as arguably the biggest stecker fan im very reluctant to agree....but when a capable replacement comes along i would gladly concede...PT cant fill in for stecker...he is so versatile to be replaced right now....ur right tho...maybe in a few years tho

Re: Is pierre tradeable?

You really dont want to trade PT at this point, and with the current fad the NFL is going through with 2 running back system the value of the RB is almost at an all time low.

I've had a man crush on Duce since he joinned the team, and I'm really pulling for him to come back for this second injury. However his style of running, money due to him, and his age are all working against him.

We still have to sign Colston and Will Smith......and the money we save from cutting or trading Duce would go along way to keeping those two players.

You say that were nuts for pulling for them, you call them sorry, you wonder why we deal with them year after year. Well New Orleans is like no other city in the world, and no fans are anything like saint fans.

Out of RB, DM, AS, and PT, Stecker is the odd man out. Pierre can already do anything Stecker can do, and he is still a rookie.
