New Orleans Saints should re-sign RB Chris Ivory

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I guess it all depends on what kind of magic Loomis can do with our cap. Being that we're 20 mill over and still have to re-sign or replace Bushrod and DLP (there's about 8 mill), adding another 2 million ...

I guess it all depends on what kind of magic Loomis can do with our cap.

Being that we're 20 mill over and still have to re-sign or replace Bushrod and DLP (there's about 8 mill), adding another 2 million for our 4th string RB who's injured more than he's healthy is a pretty tough sell.

I'd be tempted to throw that 2 million toward some front 7 3-4 players.

Danno, are you somehow related to, or working for Loomis?

Not yet.

Why do you ask?

You have your finger on the numbers like none other here. Damned impressive I must say.

Fin is probably more up on it than I am, but we both apparently read a lot of articles about our cap situation.

Triplett had a pretty good article on our cap that showed simple contract restructures by Brees, Grubbs, Evans, combined with the release of Vilma and Smith saved about 28 million all by itself.

If just those 5 moves can free up 28 million, imagine what an entire roster overview by one of the best contract GM's in the league could do.

I know he's talking numbers, but all I hear is blah, blah, blah. You say it so I can hear it.

Plus throw in a few more guys hitting the streets and we could have some real money to throw around for FA's.

Now if we can just get our first rounder this year to really pan out...

Think it will depend on Payton's gameplan. If he believes they should have run the ball more and can do that, he might just want a full stable again.

I agree with you I'm going to extreme dispointed is we let Ivory go. Imgram came along late last year but I still think he's our best runner.
