Actually we'd be signing him to be our Reggie Bush. Sproles was brought in and adopted Reggie's role. For the record, Reggie is far and away a better receiver than Darren Sproles. Reggie can not be covered even by most safeties in the NFL, he is a phenomenal route runner and has great hands. Perhaps the best hands of anyone on the Saints roster. I still think Reggie can be a matchup nightmare who SP can utilize in countless ways. Brought in to give 5-10 good plays per game, he could shine and we can finally cut Cadet. Didn't Reggie score a TD on a screen pass in the Lion's playoff loss?

Reggie was also a solid blocker. Not sure if he is still capable but we sure could use some help back there.

We could always go get Trent Richardson.

Re: FA Running Backs

Dont get the Reggie love
His worst ypc since 08 last year at uni 3.9,missed 5 games last year. 13 fumbles over the past 4 years. If you want a RB that has some security issues go get Ridley, younger and will get short yards. If you want a vet for cheap that can do everythung go get Ray Rice,one down year because he was hurt. Yes he has the offield concern but cheap and can get it done.

Id rather take a cheap rookie

Re: FA Running Backs

Ingram was an after thought that was an emotional response to his son nagging him into promising to draft him(according to his book Home Team).
He has never fit the system and would benefit from a change of scenery. I personally would be upset if he stays because he is so limited with what Payton can and will do with him. I'm an Alabama fan was stoked in the beginning but Ingram just hasn't produced the way I hoped he would. Unfortunately, we can't count on Roll Tide staying healthy. There are some good later round thumpers to pair with Khiry that would be more than welcome in New Orleans.

Re: FA Running Backs

Roy Hulu or Shane Vareen come on down then draft some a RB in the mid rounds

Re: FA Running Backs

Now we can take Pierre Thomas off of our list of current running backs.
