JP, I don't understand why you think Loomis would be an idiot for accepting a 5. The Saints gave Ivory the second round tender as leverage, but frankly it's not hard to imagine teams shying away from acquiring him at all, considering his injury history. I think he's a very valuable player at his current price, due to his ability. It's not a risk for the Saints. But we might not get an offer higher than a 5th, and given our lack of cap space to sign free agents, you can't pass that up. I'll be ecstatic if we get as high as a 3rd for him.

I can see him getting traded during the draft.If the right player is there then he becomes a great bargaining chip.

Re: Ivory draws 2nd round tender

I can see pleading a 5th!

We'd still have 4 RB's, and would likely target another RB as an UDFA.

Two years ago depth wasn't the only problem. We picked guys off the couch who didn't have a whole year in our system. So not only were they scrubs, but they were scubs relatively new to Payton's offense.

I'd jump on a 4th, but I'm about 50/50 on accepting a 5th. I'd almost rather keep him, if Mickey can make the 2 million fit and we still get some defensive help.

That extra 2 million would certainly help upgrade the defense somewhere.

Re: Ivory draws 2nd round tender

If 'zona will pay as much as they did for Kolb - cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and a second-round pick; then we should be asking for a second rounder and not taking anything less than a third rounder...

Loomis' trade history Jamaal Brown, Reggie Bush, Barrett Rudd, Sedrick Ellis has been less than remarkable - which is why we need a stronger personnel director which he could hire to assist him, rather than just a bean counter...

Re: Ivory draws 2nd round tender

Brilliant!! He has shown greatness at times and when teams look at film they will see that he is explosive. No one knows how much time he sat and wasn't injured.(outside of the injury report) Smart move in my book. Ask for a second.....demand a third and get a fourth at the very least. He could be good for the right team.

Re: Ivory draws 2nd round tender

I wouldn't go lower than a 3rd rounder for Ivory.
Anything less I would just keep him.
I just don't believe a 4, 5 or 6+ rounder could match Ivory's contributions.
Two or three years down the road developmental project contributors aren't even worth talking about.
Ivory does what PT, Ingram and Sproles do not do. He fills a niche.
If we can get production for him, great, otherwise just keep him and let him bang some heads.

Nothing but a rd 2 for him. The guy is a beast when healthy. At the least a 3rd and a 6th next year.

Maybe trade our 5th and Iv for a 2nd.
