Because we had zero healthy RB's.

...nobody seems to remember that at the time of the Ingram draft, Pierre Thomas was on crutches, no one knew for sure if his ankle surgery was successful or not. It was NOT a given that Pierre would be back to his old self on the field, at all. At the same time they knew Bush was all but gone to another team; and Ivory was wearing a boot and could not run AT ALL after his Lisfranc surgery. They had NOBODY in the backfield in March that was 100% guaranteed to be there in the fall of 2011.

Ingram also dropped. I remember people on here saying no way we would have a shot. Think he dropped about 5 spots so it looked like a solid move.

Because of the Seattle playoff game loss. That was the only reason.

LOL, I read where he actually barfed on the field and Payton took him out, then Robinson was arguing his case to come back in and barfed again on the sidelines.

That kid wants a friggin roster spot!

No practice squad. It's just like being on waivers. Any team can sign any player off a practice squad. Like the Lions did with Bell.

But the Saints can match any offer made and keep him, they just have to activate him to the 53 for 3 weeks minimum.
