New Orleans Saints will see 'real C.J. Spiller' in 2016, Mickey Loomis says | NOLA.com

We don't need him really. Are they really expecting him to make big plays with just 10 touches a game?

Re: Looks like Spiller will be back

You know how payton likes to have that reggie bush or darren sproles type of running back in his arsenal. None of the othe rb's on the roster fit that mold. I have a feeling either hightower or robinson will be gone.

I think Hightower and PRob are both free agents already. Could be wrong about PRob.

Re: Looks like Spiller will be back

These RB's are a dime a dozen they also get injured frequently, except for Sproles but he protects his body, knows when it is over. Spiller not that guy. He did run out of bounds on one last year so who knows...maybe he gets it but I doubt it. I would rather go with undrafted RB's and put that coin into our lines. Our lines are weak right now.

I think they know more than "we" do.

I know you meant KRob but theyre both still on our roster. That other guy that was returning kickoffs - can't remember his name - might be a casualty as well

Re: Looks like Spiller will be back

Seeing that his dead money would of been 3.75 and his salary is 4.5 I think it was a smart move. Don't even know why this is a thread.

On March 9th Hightower will be a UFA and KRob will be a RFA. It's possible we lose both.

The other was Murphy but he fumbles too much for my taste though.
