With his history of injuries, Ivory should be the odd man out.

The only question of keeping all 4 this upcoming off season is whether or not Ivory is content with playing time. No one is going to break bank for an injury riddled player so we should be able to re-up him for the vets minimum.

I would love to have all 4 back but he is the odd man out. Ingram's role next year will only expand therefore Ivory won't have a regular role on the team. His best chance of having long term success will be elsewhere.

I don't see any reason we can't keep four next year. We did this year and it seems to be working! It's really too far away to have any idea what's going to happen between now and then.

I know people will disagree with this, but I don't think Ivory is a really hot commodity for trading. The whole league knows that he has an injury history and while he is very talented, he is from a small school, an undrafted free agent, and he's STILL not really a proven NFL entity. He has some problems in his highlight reel, like that huge fumble against Atlanta, that teams will look at. I love me some Ivory, don't get me wrong -- but I kinda think he is going to continue on a path pretty much the way he has been, games here and there, and injuries, off and on, and then be out of football in a couple of years when somebody better suddenly falls into the Saints' sights. Maybe a stop at another team after he gets cut here, but as much as I like him, I don't really see him being a big trade value for the Saints, something that other teams would want. I can't really see him turning into a big feature back for another team. Remember Mike Bell didn't exactly light the world on fire once he left here, either. And don't forget Joique Bell -- come August he will presumably be back in it, battling it out as well. That is a long way away. Too far away to really think about.

Then again, there is no telling what kind of miracles this front office can do -- I would not be at all surprised if Ivory was traded for something/someone that made people's jaws drop, where someone gave the farm for him and the Saints got an absolutely ridiculous better part of the deal. We were supposed to lose out so badly on Reggie Bush and look how that turned out. If God forbid, Pierre were ever to be the one traded, that's what I think would happen -- it would be some completely ridonkulous deal that makes everybody laugh out loud with glee at what the Saints got for him, although of course we'd be sad to see him go.

I have thought since the beginning of this season and we would not see PT here next year....not sure why I feel that but it is a hunch. I hope he is here but not sure.
