New Orleans Saints signing former Vikings fullback Zach Line

New Orleans Saints running back Adrian Peterson will soon see a familiar face in the locker room.

Fullback Zach Line, who spent the past four seasons with Peterson on the Minnesota Vikings, agreed to a deal with the Saints on Wednesday, according to his agent Mike McCartney.



Line worked out for the Saints after practice Wednesday and clearly impressed. Although he's a fullback now, Line was an exceptional college tailback as he ran for at least 1,200 yards each year from 2010-12 at Southern Methodist.

The 27-year-old Line remained unsigned this offseason as he recovered from a hip injury, but he'll now look to make an impact for the Saints on offense and special teams.

Somebody has to blocking dummy for all these horses we have in the backfield.

Interesting. I would love to see some games where we power run then mop up tired defenses with kill shots in the second half and our fresh defense.

I'd like to see him play running back with Kuhn at fullback from time to time.

Not sure how they could keep both.

I know this may sound completely crazy, but something tells me Ingram could possibly be trade bait. Kamara looks like the real thing, he and Peterson could handle the bulk of the snaps, keep two fullbacks, and maybe Lasco and/or Cadet as reserves, there you go.

Love Kuhn. But, he's been nicked up. Could be just a favor to AP. Or the Saints could have a younger more versatile version of Kuhn.

I just wanted to chime in...

It sounds completely crazy.

What could we possible get for Ingraham that would be worth it?

Would the Giants be willing to part with one of their defensive pieces? Then again....he'd make that team both balanced and dangerous.
