FA Running Backs

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Now Deangelo Williams is in the mix, too. Bad year for Ingram to become a FA- it's definitely a buyer's market this year. I'm not against a placeholder veteran for a year of two while we fix other positions https://www.profootballfocus.com/blo...running-backs/...

Re: FA Running Backs

Ingram will end getting his best offer from the Saints because the value of the running back position has diminished over the last few years. It will be up to him and his agent if he returns. I'll be happy if he does because he showed so much improvement this year but if not that's just the business side of the NFL

Re: FA Running Backs

He just needs to stay healthy... That is my only concern with Ingram. He has yet to finish 1 season without missing games due to injury.

Re: FA Running Backs

As a Saints fan, I'm elated DeAngelo was cut from the Kittens. This guy has gashed us so many times. He is a nice change of pace back but brittle.

He is 30+. That is old for a RB ... PASS.

I'm still hoping we can somehow retain Roll Tide but chances are unlikely.

Re: FA Running Backs

Khiry could become a work horse. He has shown a lot of potential.
