And so it begins.... Max Unger out

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I'm not too worried. He's a vet and knows our system by now. He takes it slow and he can be ready for the season. More reps for the other guys....

Have you seen Mangold recently?

And trading Ingram for a temporary replacement center?! Our running game already takes a hit without Unger so why make it worse getting rid of our best RB?

In all reality this is the new elephant in the room. Once again, the injury bug hits us........that is the first.

#1 next season is center unless one of our UDFA's excels. Please bring someone else in now.

I don't feel comfortable with Kelemete(calamity) taking the center to start the season. We need to dominate on the O-line to get off to a strong start and his stating replacement isn't on the roster now. jmho

And stop with the Jimmy Graham fail talk. It gave us a first round draft pick and a starting center a couple of years ago and we dropped Jimmy's fat contract. This was a win for the FO. Selecting Anthony was where we failed.

I wouldn't be too sure about it just being speculation. Philly needs a RB in the worst way and I heard from other places before now that the Saints tried to trade Ingram earlier this spring with no success because the draft was deep at running back. With Philly not adequately addressing that position on draft day, I can see them as trade partners.

Come on guys, there is obviously a pattern here. Saints trade up to draft a RB who is better than Ingram in every way and also sign Adrian Peterson. Doesn't this look reminiscent of when they drafted Ingram when Bush was on the roster. Also, look at the fact that every malcontent has been cut or traded away. Galette, Lofton, Graham, Cooks, Lewis etc. It's clear Payton doesn't like insubordination or being challenged by his players. Anybody remember the many outbursts Ingram has had on the sidelines and I think the last one against the Cardinals was the straw that broke the camel's back.

Trust me when I say this....they're definitely trying to rid themselves of Ingram. Anybody with a me personality is being weeded out. Besides, it took Ingram like 5 years to finally get 1000 yds. People can say it's because he didn't get enough carries but I think the fact that he couldn't stay healthy is the reason he didn't get the lion's share of the carries. If Peterson is anywhere near his old self, Ingram is on the way out either this season or the next. There's no need for two workhorses and the pass catching role will be taken over by Kamara. Eventually, Kamara will take over full-time as the 3 down back.

There is very much wrong with this post.

Philly couldn't sign AP? They couldn't have take Kamara before us? They didn't want Mixon, Lacy, Murray, Woodhead, Blount?
