CJ just might like us as an option. he knows we would use him like DS. that might be appealing after the NFL pounding at RB has limited his playing time so far. he might look at as a longevity move.

Re: Saints 2015 Free Agents

Runningbacks have become more like wide receivers in today's game, you rotate 'em, maneuver formations for matchups...

Linebackers (mostly on other kid's teams) are now 6-2 to 6-4 and can run like deer and have excellent short burst, so a running back mano y mano is less likely successful...

Workhorse runningbacks in today's game are becoming extinct and cost prohibitive with their propensity to injury...

We've been successful with humble runningbacks who were willing to work and trust the coaches to put them in a position of success...

Example, Pierre Thomas has become the game's best screen back; great work ethic and solid character, he is the prototype for today's running back...

Re: Saints 2015 Free Agents

Honestly, there are only a few I think we need.

Ingram
Walker
Haralson

The rest could be let go/replaced with upgrades.

For those of you that want to keep Cadet... your crazy. The guy is a fumbling machine and has done nothing of note. He was already replaced on the KR team and we saw better results. He might be the worst 3rd down back we have as well. Yes, he can catch but that's about it. There are 100's of UDFA that display his talent. Cadet is a wasted roster spot.

And it'll be a new wrinkle in Free Agency...

Re: Saints 2015 Free Agents

On second thought, with the existence of plenty high-profile big name free agents out there looking for re-entry, or simply a re-introduction into the public eye, the league will need to be careful it doesn't turn into a reality show.

HA!!

Too late for that buddy. Have you been watching the NFL lately???
