Letting Ozigbo get away was a mistake.

Will SP admit it, though?

I thought we were through with those silly moves.

I guess they took a shot that he'd end up on the PS, but that was not a smart gamble.

Due diligence.

Saints are compiling an "emergency list" ... players to put on speed dial if needed.

Running Backs in today's NFL - risky to pay them long term, have a short shelf-life, and yet, still a premium even in the passing league today...

My hell why would he admit it? I'm sure every coach/team has times where they missed on players. It happens. Jesus, we have Kamara. It's not like we're hurting for RBs.

It was a horrible mistake. Mark my word, he will be starting for the Jags when hair burette goes down again, which he will because he has always gone down, even in college. Fournette will not play 16 games. We had a good 2nd string RB and Payton dropped him. Stupid. He'll pay for it.

Yea I wanted Ozigbo but nothing wrong with getting familiar with as many players as you can in preparation for the worst.
I’m just hoping it’s not saying anything about Murray.
Did they sign Ozigbo to the active roster or their PS?
