Why would any team give up anything of value for him right now?
Could it be their trying to low ball him for next year, if he has a great year it would cost the Saints more than if they don't play him at all. Sounds stupid but they know their going to have to spend some money on the defense this coming off season.
I would like to see Ingram traded for a 2nd round pick next year

Ivory BLOWS UP linebackers with a ball in his hand and he can't block?

I wouldn't want to be the one to tell him that.

I would like to see Ivory showcased much more than Ingram, but I also could see them in the backfield together.

Keep in mind those are just salaries... Not Cap hits... Salary is fairly moot.

That's a strategy when you have 4 healthy RB's that are all playing well and you are winning. Not when you are losing and you dont have all of your coaches. There has been no one with any stroke available to make that call so far this year.

Re: Joe Vitt: "Chris Ivory aint goin' nowhere"

Been looking at a lot of old games lately. I see a lot of high light worthy plays from Ivory. Broken tacles, long runs and just generally exciting play. Ingram? Nada.

Ivory has the ability to change games. What's the point of having him tie up a roster spot if you're not going to use him?

Five HB's on the roster. Last in the NFL in rushing attempts and yards.

Well to be honest Cadet made the roster because of special teams combined with the fact that our number 4 RB is made of glass and can't pass protect.

I view Cadet as Sproles back-up, with Ingram being PT's back-up.

Ivory, despite his fumbling, no pass protecting, often injured, no special team playing self, has just too much upside to cut.

And the fact that we have 5 capable RB's and are still last in rushing should be a gigantic clue that RB ain't the problem.

The problem is o-line and utilization (coaching).

Can't help but think that Ivory would be more productive running through the same holes as Ingram tries to. The schemes they are using for Ingram are NOT EFFECTIVE, time to at least try something different with him.
