I like it. History aside, Ingram is a widget. Nonsense in overpaying for a cog. Goood luck Mark but we need a solid O line

Saints probably just couldn't or willing to match a contract from other suitors.

The financial folks probably gave MI a number and a deadline. Unfortunate we'll lose Mark but the NFL is a business.

I wish Mark well wherever he lands though. He gave 100% on every down.

Not bad. Maybe Murray is a bit undervalued running behind a bad o-line in Minnesota and not really having a lot of offensive weapons around him back in his Oakland days.

We'll lose Ingram's reliability in pass blocking and catching, but Murray is a bigger back and more difficult to bring down. Could help wear down opponents in the 3rd and 4th quarter.

Re: Saints Sign Latavius Murray

Kamara can do it all and better than most. Only concern is his size and his ability to remain healthy with that kind of work load. Any RB we have on the roster with him is nothing more than an insurance policy. May as well buy the cheaper one.

Good luck to Ingram. He was a solid player and good guy and wish him the best.

Re: Saints Sign Latavius Murray

I'm not a fan of this move. I realize Ingram probably wanted more money than he's worth, given his percentage of touches. Still, he was one of the best for the locker room chemistry. And Murray in no way will fill Ingram's shoes.
