This is GREAT news for Pierre Thomas owners.  His role is only going to increase.  He should see a LOT more carries and get a LOT more receptions.

The new, more affordable Reggie Bush...  From "The REAL Feed":

Saints bring in Sproles to fill RB void left by Bush trade (http://www.nfl.com/news/story/09000d5d8211021c/article/saints-bring-in-sproles-to-fill-rb-void-left-by-bush-trade)
NFL.com (29.07.2011 03:09)
The Saints quickly found their successor to Reggie Bush in Darren Sproles, a speedy back who does many of the things that made Bush such a dynamic presence in New Orleans.

Ingram OUT for the rest of the "season"... according to "The REAL Feed":

Saints put rookie RB Ingram on injured reserve (http://espn.go.com/nfl/playoffs/2011/story/_/id/7421094/2012-nfl-playoffs-mark-ingram-new-orleans-saints-put-ir)
ESPN: NFL (03.01.2012 19:19)
The Saints have placed rookie running back Mark Ingram and linebacker Will Herring on injured reserve, ending their seasons.


I must admit that I think that the play of Chris Ivory heavily contributes to this decision.  Indeed, his future and where he will end up is worth keeping tabs on for next year. [smiley=radar.gif]

Saints re-sign Marques Colston to 5 year deal with approximately 40 million - 19 million guaranteed.   Colston was smart to stay with Brees in my opinion.

WOW, Mark Ingram gets paid well for a running back who has not had a 1,000 yard season.  Ultimately, he is a good fit for New Orleans.   The question is, does he repeat what he did in 2014?  Or play like he did in 2012 and 2013?

Well, the holes for Ingram to run through will be a few fewer.  Something just got spilled on him...  From "The REAL Feed":

New Orleans Saints sign C.J. Spiller (http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap3000000478805/article/new-orleans-saints-sign-cj-spiller)

The New Orleans Saints have signed former Buffalo Bills running back C.J. Spiller on Friday. Is New Orleans changing its identity and moving away from Drew Brees' aerial attack?

The question is who is the next man up?   The Saints paid Spiller like he was going to be the man, but he has been invisible.    Tim Hightower?   Really? He has not really played since 2011.   Markus Murphy?   7th round rookie draft pick who has been kick and punt returner.  

The poor Saints.....from bad to worse.   Don't think other teams will fear the run.
