Not sold on Ozigbo, Jones Jr or Washington.

Let see what the Baylor rookie (maybe he surprises like Pierre T) can do & I do believe Ingram still has some gas left in the tank.

I'd still bring in another vet though. Maybe later or after final cuts around the league in August.

I'm nervous about AK being out for six games or more. After Mark Ingram, who is up there in age, we don't have a proven vet to go to and that makes me nervous too. I won't be surprised if we make a trade before TC. If we don't go that route then we will probably pick up a RB after roster cuts.

We have no idea when or even IF Kamara is suspended, nor how many games if it comes to pass. They still haven't formally pressed charges and it is still in the investigative stage with the next follow-up appearance not scheduled until August 1. The league now waits for legal proceedings to be resolved before administering punishments and it wouldn't surprise me if it doesn't get resolved until next year.

Others of us are more realistic and want the team to be prepared should things go bad for him.

The position may need a rebuild, hopefully things will work out this year. If that kid from Baylor (or anyone else for that matter) can step it up, it will help tremendously. Top backup Ingram is about done, and let's not forget in addition to legal issues, AK is an aging running back who may have showed signs of slowing down last year.

Excuse me? Exactly who is saying that the team shouldn't be prepared? I missed that. I never said things couldn't go bad. I was pointing out that the timetable on that is totally unknown and may very well not be the first six games. If punishment comes down it could be eight games in the middle of the 2022 season. It could be four games at the end of the season running into the playoffs. It could be the first three games of the 2023 season. And, yes, it could come at the start of this season. If it comes at all.

I would assume the Saints are concerned about signing a vet prior to the beginning of the season with his salary being guaranteed for the entire year, especially if it looks like Kamara will be available to start the season. With the next investigative session scheduled for August 1 it is a very real possibility that the issue will not be resolved legally before the start of the season. In that case it makes complete sense, if targeting a veteran RB, to wait for the actual signing after the season begins.

I really love peace and quiet. - Barry Sanders

Re: 2022 New Orleans Saints roster breakdown: Running backs/fullbacks

I really think this is the easiest position to address. Thereís a surplus of running backs in the NFL. Find you a partner and trade for one.

Alexander Mattison
Darrell Henderson
J.D. McKissisic

Thereís a lot of back ups that could come in and hold it down. Send a pick and letís get it going.

The thing that slowed down Kamara last year is the same thing that slowed down the entire offense ... a decimated offensive line and little to no threat in the passing game. Kamara is only 26 years old. Not quite approaching the end of a career, yet.
