Could the Pittsburgh Steelers Lure Chris Ivory from New Orleans Saints?

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; There's no way Ingram would get traded, the dude needs some time but he will be a great player for us! It's hard for him to get set when we are swapping RB's every play, can't wait to see him ...

It's hard for him to get set when we are swapping RB's every play, can't wait to see him healthy again though, I'd trade ivory, we've got a couple undrafted RB's that supposedly look good

It's difficult to see Ivory having high enough trade value to make this worth while, because even though we all love his running game when he is healthy, he hasn't been healthy long enough to really produce consistently.

They should only trade Ivory if they are compensated with a high enough pick or if they are really high on one of the other RBs they currently have in the system behind Ivory.

No way should they try to trade Ingram away - he is the purest RB they have on their roster and a future star in the league.

Bold prediction : Ivory won't make the team this year.

How about Ingram for a first or second round pick next season... Which we do not have.

Goddell never said Saints couldn't have a first or second if the Saints acquired it in a trade, if the Steelers gave a 2nd for Ivory I would hope Loomis would make it happen and the thing is I'd like to keep Ivory because the Saints have shown they can never have enough running backs but something tells me Ingram is going to have a great season this year

He may end up on IR or possibly could get traded, but unless one of those things happen, he will be on the roster. He won't be just cut. Thomas always gets nicked up. Ingram is still a very big question mark. Sproles is just not an every down back. Plus, the memories of the Seahawks playoff game with guys off the street and an injured FB getting plays at RB are still fresh.

At best Ivory could bring a 5th from a team that is desperate. He's more valuable to the Saints even if it's in an emergency situation.

1-He'll likely get hurt in TC and that'll be the final straw
2-He may go on IR, because he'll be cheap
3-One of the young guys may shine in TC, after all thats how Ivory made the team.

I doubt he gets traded because no one's gonna give up a pick for a RB that hasn't made it thru a single game without getting hurt.

I was under the impression that the Saints have their 1st round pick for next year's draft as it stands now, and they might even get their 2nd round pick back if they dance happily to Goodell's flute playing until then.

That might be why there have been claims by some (i.e. Vilma) that the Saints' coaches are afraid to take a stand on the matter of his suspension and the legality of it - hoping that they'd get back the 2nd rounder if they stay quiet.
