Saints Sign Latavius Murray

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I don’t think Murray will be a downgrade in the running game. And he’s reportedly good in pass protection. It’ll be as an outlet receiver and screens that I’m concerned about....

LMurray had a 85% catch rate for 2018. To put that in perspective, stud Christian McCaffery was @ 86% for the season.

Re: Saints Sign Latavius Murray

I am OK with this move.

RBs are interchangeable, so this can work fine.

Ingram had a good run here, but I don't think he ever lived up to his true potential with where he was drafted. He would have those amazing break out games, then the next week he'd struggle. I had a feeling he was gone after the past two years in the playoffs where he was a complete non-factor.

With that said, I wish him well where ever he ends up. Don't think he is a major loss though.

We win because of the numbers we gave him. I don't think we lose anything at all on the field. Although Mark was a real leader on the team.

If the reported money Ingram is seeking is correct, I agree with the move but I hope Murray can pass block as well as Ingram did. Might take the locker room a little time to heal though.

If Cook was healthy he would have barely seen the field. Still a good RB but no Ingram. I do like the move and was hoping for something close to this pickup.

$8 million per year is the rumor...

Happy for Mark! For a soon-to-be 30 year old RB to DOUBLE his salary is really an accomplishment. Well deserved.
