Brown is still on his rookie contract which ends after the 2013 season - his cap hit for 2012 is $745K and for 2013 it'll be $825K.

They might as well keep him around for depth, although he probably won't ever become a starter, with such a low cap hit he can at least be a depth guy until he once again gets injured.

He has 0 trade value.

I definitely like that idea and much as I like PT, I think we could get a pretty high 2nd rounder for him. I mean, we wasted picks to get Ingram so I'd think he'd take PT's role anyway and we still have Ivory and Sproles plus the guy Chris something on PS who's supposed to have looked pretty good. I'd say if someone remarkable is there we pull the trigger on that trade. Maybe even a trade with Harper involved which might, combined with PT get us into round 1.

We couldn't get a 4th rounder for Bushrod.

Trading Harper would result in a 17 million cap hit in 2012, and we lose Harper and have to sign his replacement.

Not a wise move at all.

I'd be absolutely stunned if Harper was involved in some type of a trade deal this off-season.

I think they should hang on to PT, he is cheap, the best all around back they have and his screen plays are just killers. SP will want to hang on to four good RBs, so that the past problems with RB injuries won't come back to haunt him.

I would love to keep 4, but with the cap situation, those days might be over. I love PT, but I don't think we get anything for Ivory, and the other 2 aren't going anywhere

Loomis can always sign another FA running back

I think PT will be here with the other three backs.

Exactly, and I don't think the Saints would get anything above a 3rd round pick for PT - maybe not even that - so there's no point in trading him, also his contract is cap friendly because it was heavily front loaded.

The Pats would take PT in a heartbeat and they have like 5 million picks this year, I really do not want PT to go anywhere . He is the best back we have period.

There are alot of teams that would take PT in a heartbeat. He's arguably the most under-rated RB in the league. We need to keep him.
