Re: Ivory draws 2nd round tender

In reality, if Sean is just doing this because he wants some compensation for Ivory, then any compensation would be a plus. Be it a 2nd rounder or a 7th rounder.

I guess the move costs nothing. No one is going to bid on him and we will release him anyway. Just later

If we can get a 6th or 7th we should take it. We're 5 deep at RB. As long as it's not to an NFC South team, let him go. Give him a chance to make a name for himself and get something for him.

Re: Ivory draws 2nd round tender

I wouldn't call us 5 deep. Cadet showed almost exactly nothing last year. He had a few moments in preseason, but I wasn't impressed beyond that. I think it's wise that the Saints have tendered Ivory.

Ingram is inconsistent at best, Pierre is still good but getting up in age for a RB, and Sproles is a situational back. It wouldn't take much for Ivory to quickly be forced into the feature back role. But if he does get traded, at least we get something.

... and is asking for the 2nd, whether you get it or not, yet another creative & subtle way of giving Goodell the finger? This poster thinks so, ... think about it, on NFL Draft Day 2013 ... "and for the xx-pick of the second round, the New Orleans Saints select xxxx" ... it would be the ultimate thumbing-of-the-nose at the Commish.

It's a shame. Barring an unlikely trade, the Saints will hold Ivory hostage for a fifth season. Although Ivory has annually outperformed Mark Ingram whenever healthy, Ivory's draft status has continually kept him lower on the depth chart than the 2011 first-round pick. Ivory remains a "hold" in dynasty leagues. He's 25 years old and should hit unrestricted free agency in 2014.

The only person holding Ivory hostage is himself.
Papz, you just made my day!

And it's not a shame, it protecting an asset and franchises should get the restricted free agency time when players reside on IR for more than half a season!

If Loomis only accepts a 5, it will first confirm that he's an idiot, and second, Rita should immediately demote him to salary cap manager and one with a pair should be hired...

Marques Colston in the last round was once in a franchise lifetime - we must secure a second day pick...

Neauxxxxx!!! Got to have more than a 6 or 7, second day pick is the price, firm...and we still should have five running backs in our system, remember your history, remember the second half of the Seahawks...

We really need that second rounder for Barrett Jones!

The Cardinals! They must have a running back after the last four have flopped; they've a history of overpaying - Kevin Kolb; and it would be a high 2 which we could also throw in Roman Harper or a sixth round pick!
