Re: Could Sproles contract be next in line to be terminated?

A power run game with no C or good level starting RT as things stand is a worry.

Re: Could Sproles contract be next in line to be terminated?

till Drew restructure this is what happens to a team that pays so much to just one player. cuts have to made. so far they hurt but we can survive. the next ones will be harder to take i think

lesson learned?

DO NOT OVERPAY JIMMY

Looks like Loomis took my advice and is finally doing his job. Bout time.

Now cut PT, Bunkley and Hawthorne and I can call it a night.
Of all the players listed i fear PT getting cut the most

others are contract issues making it harder to justify money wise. but impact on the team? PT cut will hurt the most

We need draft choices!

Re: Could Sproles contract be next in line to be terminated?

Take a deep breath everyone. Yes some of these are shocking but they were predicted months ago.

When something surprising happens like this you should take a long hard look at the source.

As far as I know we ALL have plenty of faith in Loomis and Payton. No?

We have all complained about our predictability. No?

Those two have worked this team over before haven't they?

Payton and Loomis love to find and use niche players. Well changing the play book and the predictability requires different players.

Way to take it to a personal level... classy move!

Back to the subject at hand... I don't see any reason to outright cut Bunkley nor Hawthorne. Both played well last season and cutting them wouldn't improve the cap situation versus the strength of the roster one bit.

Well son of a beotch. I was only gone about 12 hours this time, and now Sproles is gone? Holy Crap! We are gutting the team. I guess Loomis and Payton have plans. Sad to see ya go Sproles, but I guess buisiness is business. All I know, is that Jimmy Graham and Drew Brees better play Balls-To-The-Walls next season. 100 million dollars....Geez.

Riaton,
My guess is that our ace is either already on the team (Cadet, Morgan) or in the upcoming draft however Dexter McCluster does have a nice ring to it.

Re: Thanks for the memories Darren

Sproles was a great back, but he definitely lost something over the past year. I hate seeing him and Moore leaving the Saints, but the time has come to retool the offense. We played well last year, but its not quite Superbowl material and changes have to be made. It's tough though when its your favorite players that get caught in the shuffle. Sproles will find a new home, as will Lance, and they will be strong contributors to their new teams.

Don't overlook the fastest player on the team. Kenny Stills.... Who also happens to have good enough hands to have the lowest drop rate on the team.
