Chris Ivory is a talented running back with experience, 1090 yards and 6 touchdowns on 216 yards (5.0 YPC), but he’s buried on the depth chart in New Orleans’ deep running back group, behind Mark Ingram, Darren Sproles, and Pierre Thomas, and SportsNOLA’s Brian Allee-Walsh believes he’s on the roster bubble as the Saints may not want to carry 4 running backs in 2012. Allee-Walsh also mentions Ivory’s history of injury problems as an obstacle to him making the roster. If he is cut, don’t expect him to last long on the open market. He’s too talented not to make someone’s final  53 and he only recently turned 24. The Saints might actually be able to get something for him in a trade. They should at least explore the possibility.

Despite being under the radar and blasted as terrible on a nationally televised...

NFLPA says Saints employees fear retribution from NFL for truthful bounty testimony

The NFLPA continues its crusade to discredit any and all claims that the NFL have brought against the New Orleans Saints.

Week in review: pair of rookies cut, Lee emerging as leader

As NFL OTAs come to an end, so do the hopes of making an NFL team for many undrafted free agents around the league. Penn Staters were not immune from that disappointment this week. For a few established Penn Staters in the NFL, the week was far from disappointing as they have already started to increase their roles for this upcoming season. Here’s what happened with Penn...

Saints won’t discuss an extension with Jimmy Graham this offseason

Rob Gronkowski just got a record extension for a tight end, 54 million over 6 years, but don’t expect the same to happen for Jimmy Graham. Graham essentially matched Gronkowski in production last season and is also heading into his 3rd year after being taken in the 3rd round in the 2010 NFL Draft, the same draft where Gronkowski went in the 2nd round. Like Gronkowski did, Graham...

Vilma's lawyer: Evidence does not link players to "bounty"

The lawyer for New Orleans Saints linebacker Jonathan Vilma said the evidence the NFL provided on Friday does not link the player to any "bounty" program.

Ginsberg said...
