2 things I took away from the article

1. Is the cap situation so bad that he had to take AP to the buffet at the Ritz
2. Why didn't AP either not buy a Saints bag, or throw it away instead of just putting tape over the logo. Hell he could have easily cut the stitching away from it.

I really think a lot of other teams are going to kick themselves for passing on him. I think we get a year out of him performing at an above average level. I'll be fine with that.
No matter what people are going to have to respect the run. He may not do it as often but they'll know that at some point he's going to rip one off.

He is right about Gore at 33 hitting 1,000. No reason he can't do it other than limited carriers which Payton said he is going to feed the hot hand. Ingram also seemed to go Wolverine with internal competition. Going to be fun watching if that goes down even if one is not a Saints fan. I would totally watch AP on another team (not the falcons) just for the hell of it.

You obviously were too lazy to read the article. That explains number two completely. And the cap isn't affected by meals.

Well we are one of the leaders in dead money...again, and rumor is Benson does cut back the discretionary spending on meals for free agents when we mismanaging our cap like this.

You are full of $hit. Dead money would have been spent anyway and it is less the non-guaranteed portion. That is not mismanaging a cap. It is making bad personnel moves which I think we can all agree was in the past.

Loomis and company should have an account at the Red Lobster at least.

By the way, have you ever stayed at the Ritz in the French Quarter?

Me neither, because everything is top dollar. Even the breakfast buffet.

Duo have to have a good blocking TE. I'm not a playbook warrior but I know that much. And Power the MLB, need to research those in our division. If any team has a deficiency at that position I see them getting a heavy dose of AP.
