New Orleans Saints RB Chris Ivory all ready to go: Sean Payton

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; With all these backs, I wouldn't put it past Payton to run the wishbone once or twice. OK, seriously what happens when Ivory comes off of the PUP, cut a FB but then Ivory will have to play ST. Man ...

With all these backs, I wouldn't put it past Payton to run the wishbone once or twice. OK, seriously what happens when Ivory comes off of the PUP, cut a FB but then Ivory will have to play ST. Man having 4 quality RB's sounds sweet but how do you play them all when the 3 right now aren't getting enough touches.

I doubt we activate 4 RB's on gameday so somone will be inactive.

Yeah but who's roster spot does Ivory take and was that person playing on STs? And how do you decide who to activate or not? I can't see any of the other 3 not activated.

Can Ivory switch to Linebacker?

That's a tough call. Sproles is amazing and he won't be inactive unless injury. PT I think if he got more touches could be our feature back easily. He is doing a great job so far.

Ingram so far is playing like a rookie but he'll need more reps to get better which isn't going to happen in this offense. Not saying he won't get better but I think it will take longer.

My guess is all 4 active or they waive Ivory. I don't know if he is eligible for practice squad or not.

You know I was thinking of Harper going to a Lb, I think he could fit in there.

He wouldn't last 5 seconds on the waiver wire. I'm positive we'll keep 4 RB's on the roster (we always have), but probably only 3 will be activated on gameday.

I like Ivory but if there's not a spot for him maybe we can swing a trade. I think we can trust Ingram.
