Saints in the mix for CJ Spiller

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; RB's are a dime a dozen. A Sproles type is absolutely out there, not only is he out there, he likely won't get drafted! I so hope we do not waste money on a RB. We can get this player ...

RB's are a dime a dozen. A Sproles type is absolutely out there, not only is he out there, he likely won't get drafted! I so hope we do not waste money on a RB. We can get this player for next to nothing. Look around, nobody wants this style of RB.

You know Redskins signed Terrance Knighton. 1 year 4mil contract. Meanwhile we are trying to waste money on RB made of glass.

Re: Saints in the mix for CJ Spiller

I think spiller is a great weapon but we still have other needs that need to be addressed. Plus I want ingram to be "the" back on our team. None of that nonsense where we have 3 guys getting 8 carries a piece each game. Plus, not having a guy like that makes our offense more unpredictable. Far too many times when we had sproles did our offense become predictable. Team knew it was either a screen or a pass.

Hang on now. Hear me out.

Look at our secondary:
CB: Lewis, Browner, Dixon, Robinson, UFO, Frederick
S: Byrd, Vaccaro, Bush, Sunseri, Ball, Warren, Kenny Phillips...

We have talent. Enough to give the pass rush more time.

I'll be you our d line is top 12 in sacks next year!

There's a reason he got a contract like that, he's fat and out of shape. Id rather go get Red Bryant, that dude is a monster against the run.

CJ Spiller has missed 9 games in his career, 6 of them last season, just saying.

Re: Saints in the mix for CJ Spiller

^As I said before, he played for the Buffalo Bills. He was never given the opportunity to really succeed with a offense that punted a lot. When a player does not get enough playing time, the chances of injury are a higher. He won't be the bellcow on our team but he has a chance on every possession to do something if the oline is as improved as we hope.

I don't know why people are saying injury prone, he isn't. he played 14 games, 15 games, 2 full seasons and missed 6 games last year. that's not injury prone

Also, he won't be playing on grass in 13 games a year. He would only play in 7 or less.
