He doesn't mean any harm. Let's face it, Sproles really wasn't worth 6 million a season. I'm very curious how many touches we're even going to give him here. If Ingram takes off and PT is fully healthy... mix in some Ivory, where does that leave Sproles?

That said, I'm confident that in the touches he will receive, he's going to make of it than Bush did with his.

No matter. They didn't bring him here to carry the team. He might not even make it. We just needed someone to do some of the same things that Reggie did so we don't have to reprint the playbook.

Good things I see about this signing...
a.) Ever since that season ending injury in 2006, he's been healthy.
b.) He's worked with Brees.
c.) He'll be running routes similar to the ones he did here.

Anybody know how much of that money is guaranteed?

Yeah, it was 15 if you count the partial games he left injured on.

For a non-Saints fan he is the least offensive that I have seen.

I can't say that, I once met a Kansas City Chiefs fan that I didn't want to punch in the face.

Sproles has no issues either, stand up guy. Bush on the otherhand, lawsuits, returning awards, fake celebrity girlfriend, dumb tweet/comments. He was always dealing with some issue that he created.

Thanks for the info, Bolts.

Last time someone came here from another team and gave us the skinny on a player we aquired, it was Bills fans telling us about Jabari Greer. (they loved him)

I think its a good sign.

all in all though if you look at reggie stats and durability vs sproles , Spoles is a definite upgrade and fumbles less, and your OL has not been near as good as ours since 2006. I think sproles will perform even better than when he was a charger, because he has better protection from the OL , better play calling for misdirection , and more weapons, so he will not be seen as the weapon he was in charger country, and will have LB's trying to cover him.
Plus spoles is still young and has only 249 attempts to reggaes 524 attempt in the NFL, so he's hardly been used, my guess is they really didn't know how to use him, but we are brilliant at using scat backs in N.O. , he will fit nicely.

but thanks for the insight.

Reggie Bush NFL & AFL Football Statistics - Pro-Football-Reference.com

really? which stats?

bush is number one in receptions and recieving yards among ALL running backs since he came into the league and second in recieving touchdowns.
