Which players are on the bubble?

1. Mark Ingram
The FO didn't pick up his option and he must be better than Tim Flanders or I could see him traded to a team with injury problems at RB.
2. Nick Toon for a fourth rd pick he has been given lots of chances . IMHO it is time to put up or shut up. Eleven players are competing for 5 spots Competing with some good players who could have more upside . He needs to have a stellar pre season to get a spot.
3. Joe Morgan needs to get back on the field . Injury concerns and playing time are the questions that he must answer. See above.
4. CBs someone is going to be odd man out . Eleven players and five spots. This is going to be exciting to watch . We might have a player traded from this deep group.
5. Always a player that surprises and takes a spot from a player that we thought would be safe . This FO has shown that they will keep the player that plays the best and has upside. More than a lot of teams positions are up for grabs to anyone that proves themselves.

Any thoughts,ideas,opinions?

This is definitely Joe's last go around. We all want him to succeed but he simply can't help us on the sideline or in the tub.

What about kickers?

Will the Saints stay with Graham or go with Dimke(sp)?

Danno I really tried to like Ingram . He just hasn't panned out. It might be how we use him . He has failed repeatedly in clutch situations. I hope I am wrong but I don't think so

Re: Which players are on the bubble?

Tanner, Toon, Morgan are all on the bubble I believe. They have all had ample time to catch on. I think Morgan is the front runner if he can stay healthy.
Every kicker is on the bubble
I think this is INgrams last shot. I don't see him being on the training camp bubble but an in season trade is a possibility if he starts the season like he normally does. In any case he needs to pick up where he left off last year.
I do think Payton is going to be more committed to the run this season and Ingram will have a chance to put the "he just needs carries" theory to the test.

Re: Which players are on the bubble?

Ingram was statistically our best RB last year

4.9 yards per carry in the regular season and 5.2 in the post-season...

Re: Which players are on the bubble?

1. Mark Ingram - bubble hell yeah. but not in camp IMO. if he does not produce regularly and stay healthy he has a chance to bring us a comp pick just maybe at seasons end

2. Nick Toon - gotta hold onto the ball

3. Joe Morgan - can he stay health

4. CBs - special teams bust.
