Another reason we reinvest in the O line this offseason.

He's going to get less carries. Great time to dump him. Loved the signing but I think we can do better. RB's like him are a dime a dozen.

I agree that it is the perfect time to trade him. Coming off his best season and the healthiest he has been as a pro we could get a rd 2 at the least. AK will get many more touches next year and we can get maybe a Guice late in the first for 1/4 of the price. With that said I hope he stays and accepts his lighter role. Iíve always been a ďMIAĒhater but the dude proved me wrong this year. Showed heart and skill I didnít think he was capable of.

Rd one should be a cb or o-line. If one of the ND boys fall to us Iíd say we would be stupid to pass.

So let me get this right; we have a great blend of backfield ability, which did something that no-one in the NFL has done previously, who had his second successive 1000+ yard season and has formed a great bond which may well be one of the reasons for our running success...and you want to dump him? I would prefer we go into next season with the same threat in the backfield. New O-Linemen...sure, Receivers...why not? I just don't think we should just get rid of Ingram.

I use to have the same outlook but it's all about value. Have to maximize it. Good RB's in this draft that will be going late. Look at what the Pats did with 2016 Blount; 18 TD's and they let him go. If Guice is there at 27 or later somebody is getting a RB that many are saying could be better than Fournette. It's a great time to trade MI IMO. He won't be our feature back next year and after next year no value. I would package him with our 6 and move up high in the 2nd.

With an aging Brees, having a formidable backfield is smart.

I've always liked Ingram and now we definitely need to keep him around!

I think a huge part of Kamaras success is due to Ingram. You put an average back in there and defenses won’t have to respect him as much. Then that leaves Kamara to help shoulder more of that up the middle load which I think will close the playbook a lil. Not to mention injury.
