And so it begins.... Max Unger out

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; This sounds like a media hack soliciting for the Eagles... They'd better back the Brinks truck up with Kelce... With AP an unknown yet physically, I'm not sure we **** with our depth... Saints still need to see Kelemete before ...

With AP an unknown yet physically, I'm not sure we **** with our depth...

Saints still need to see Kelemete before the deal, personally, I'd sign a banged up Mangold as Kelce has also been the disgruntled type...

Plus, do you invest that much into Kelce with Unger still under contract...

Senio Kelemete steps up.

anyone ready to address the need for a backup C/G via the draft to groom for replacement down the road?

I have no idea how he is injury wise and so but the idea isn't to crazy to me. Still plenty of time to get in shape for the season. Especially if its just to fill in a couple of games at the start of the season. Center, especially in an offence like ours is a complicated position.

Thank you. Some voice of reason. Why the **** would trading Ingram make any logical sense at all?! It'd be irresponsible and totally crazy!

If we signed Mangold, his contract would be guaranteed for the entire year.

If we cut him in week 8 he'd still get paid for the final nine games and would be able to sign elsewhere and get paid double for the final 9.

Yeah there is that angle. That's up to Mangold. I say we stay the course and it's next man up.

Re: And so it begins.... Max Unger out

Can Mangold play another position?

Two scenarios:
- Unger takes longer than expected and Mangold keeps the job until the second half of the season or later
- Unger comes back 100%, and Mangold backs up at guard and OC

Another issue: Mangold is used to big money. Not sure we can afford him, even as a PT player

But he has played for the Jets his whole career and might be cheaper if he goes to a team that isn't dysfunctional.
