Betts Contract Details

Can't argue these numbers...

Ladell Betts gets $50K signing bonus and [$755K] salary to join the Saints. As we first told you, Saints made initial to him offer last week...Has the chance to earn up to $1M total with incentives
2006 ~245 carries
2007 ~93 carries
2008 ~60 carries
2009 ~70 carries (major knee injury, ACL/MCL)


By no means was Betts ever a top runner, not even in his prime - I'm not expecting much...

I'm actually holding hope that one of the young guys step it up and take the 3rd spot!

well, that's kind of misleading. he was always behind portis who the skins stuck with forever even when HE sucked. and when portis went down (which he always does) betts stepped in just fine. note the games he had more carries, he did well. he'll be ok.

Regardless, he's not a long term solution. That's why I'm hoping for a good showing from PJ and Ivory (live together in perfect harmonyyyy).

Ivory is a good runner. He's strong and fast. I like watching him run. But he scares me with the amount of fumbles and stripped balls he gives up.

Sure, I could see this... Still hoping for another team to make salary-cutting move at RB who we can scoop up.

Thats very true, its often said that Blitz pickup is the hardest thing for a young back to learn, with betts being a 9 year veteran he has basically seen it all and done it all. Least his knowledge will help the younger guys!
