Re: Sproles not released yet
 
Id love him here but that's a lot of cap for a declining player that isnt a alround back. Teams have figured out the the offense and when Sproles is receiving out yhe backfield teams are on him straoght away.The less said about his returning last year the better tjough yhats on blocking too.

I think PT is just as effective in the screen game as Sproles while also being a duel threat to run the ball when in... I love watching Sproles play, but I don't think we'll miss him as much as some fans might think. I hope that Cadet gets his $#!@ together and maybe takes over has our Sproles-type RB. That kid has a ton of potential.

I agree.
Sproles is more likely to rip off a 40+ yard run than PT but teams see Sproles come in and set up knowing whats coming, whereas they have to defend both run and screen plays for PT.

If the FO had an offer do you think he would still be on the market?

As high profile as this is, we would have heard something.

No one said anything about not wanting him. I'd love to have him back but my wants and what the situation is seem to be a little different.

The question goes both ways....if there was no interest do you think he would still be on the roster? It just seems unlikely to me that there's no chance in hell for a trade, and we've told this guy we don't want him but haven't released him yet.... I think that the situation suggests at least some trade interest, and that alone suggests that some team out there is contemplating pulling the trigger...

Yes because there is always 'hope'.

No where did i say "no chance in hell", I said "highly unlikely" Again, there is hope.

Why are we hanging on to him till 4pm E? Because Loomis is hoping someone calls back for a trade. Ill put good money that when the Saints put it out that Sproles was up for trade then got at least 14 calls inquiring.

He is still up for trade. If a team made an offer to Loomis that was acceptable, why is he still a Saint right now?
