FA Running Backs

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; RB for me is almost an afterthought. Unless it's Pierre Thomas I really don't care because there's such a glut of talent available....

Re: FA Running Backs

I would love to see Vereen in black and gold. I think he would fit perfectly into that satellite/playmaker role we've been missing. I don't know that he would make as big of an impact as Sproles did, but I think the improvement would be easily noticeable.

Injury prone and ineffective lately. Avoids contact, drops... (detroit days)

Re: FA Running Backs

Bush was a 1,000yd rusher in 2013.

Yes, he's injury prone but if the money is right I'd take him over Cadet.

Limited role? Bush could be worth a look...

Re: FA Running Backs

I would rather spend the money elsewhere and/or retain Roll Tide. Bush's tiime in N O has come and gone ... we have an up and comer in Khiry and ole reliable Pierre Thomas.

Add Reggie Bush to this list. Would not mind seeing him as our new Sproles.

Say we keep Ingram. I think we will.

That means we have Robinson, PT and.... Tim Hightower? Edwin Baker?

If we know anything its that our RB's will miss time.

For a cash-strapped team, having a guy like Reggie as a role player (assuming the dollars make sense) is a good idea.
