6 of one, half dozen of the other.

Lorig's taller, that's about the only difference. Oh, and he's cheaper.

The word is he's a better receiver out of the backfield than Jed.

I still like Austin Johnson, but we need to see more obviously.

This season cheaper is a huge plus, we don't need a blocking full back, we need one with hands like a Woodhead.

Re: Saints hosted free agent FB Erik Lorig

More versatility as a receiver?

J.C. Copeland 5111 275 and runs a 4.98 40? that is freaking wild. I just wonder if the bowling ball is a better receiver than people give him credit for? need you homers to chime in on that one. but for those looking for a power running game he is a great start

Yea Jed was money most of the time. His cap hit can't be that high.

Yea but if we are going to try and run a more power run game along with bigger receivers like a lot of people are thinking wouldn't we want more of a blocking FB? We already have Pierre who can catch. Not saying a cheaper option isn't needed.

I second this motion. This dude is an offensive guard in the backfield. Maybe he could help open some holes for the Saints tailbacks. The Saints need J.C. Copeland, Odell Beckam Jr, Jarvis Landry and Ego Ferguson.
