Will the Saints keep 4 RBs next year?

The Saints were fairly successful using a RB-by-committee system, although, unless it was punishment for fumbling in the pre-season, I don't know why Ivory wasn't used earlier.

If the Saints decide to just keep 3 RBs next year, I see Ingram as being traded, hopefully for needed defensive help.

I think either Ingram or Ivory will be gone in the off season. Just my opinion.

Ingram is not getting traded, so that's out the window. I hate saying it but the only RB that won't be back next year is Ivory.

I think trading Ingram is out, and we can actually get something for Ivory and have got to plug holes some how. We have no money so look for trades to be the way to acquire what we need.

Re: Question for the Forum

It is my hope that Ingram is finally starting to break out after his performances the latter part of the season. I don't want to give up on him just yet and I don't think the organization wants to do that either. Ivory is a restricted free agent, so we could tender him with a draft pick high enough to make a team in need reach for his services if they really want him. PT and Sproles aren't going anywhere. As much as I like Ivory, if someone is willing to part with a high enough draft pick after he is tendered, I would say pull the trigger on it. I believe next year we will see mostly the three-headed monster of Ingram, PT and Sproles. That would leave Cadet being the fourth RB with possibly another undrafted free agent slipping in to make the practice squad.
jlouhill, SloMotion and stickman like this.

People shouldn't be afraid of their government. Governments should be afraid of their people.
