Remind me again how many footballs there are on the field during a play.We could absolutely use someone with that kind of speed on our offense. Payton would have a field day drawing up plays for him. With that said, ain’t happenin.
I am all for sticking with Murray. I was devastated with his usage last year. The reason I felt this was mentioning about Mostert is that it just seemed to me likeMurray wasn’t looking to be big in the plans for Payton. If they were to trade he would be part of it. Do I think Murray has a major potential to flourish with the right amount of touches? 100%. But doesn’t seem liek Payton wants to use him.Remind me again how many footballs there are on the field during a play.
The Saints have a very talented running back that got used very sparingly last season and you want to bring in another one who is wanting to get paid when the Saints may not pay or won't be able to pay Kamara what he will demand after this season.
They also brought in a bonafide #2 receiver who will probably take some of the pressure off of CGM#13 and if his targets and receptions aren't up to what he thinks they should be you can bet that you'll hear some squawking from him as well.
Having playmakers is a great thing but sometimes having too many playmakers can be a double edged sword!!
Mostert is a pretty good player but the Saints don't need him.
Not so much. His star has risen quite a bit and the team wants to pay him more, so it's not whether he deserves an increase, just the matter of how much of an increase.Seems strange that a RB who was mostly a special teams player, who got a chance to run in a 3 man rotation and had one good season is demanding a pay increase.
I agree, most players follow money but don’t think as much about the teams schemes and how it fits them. The 49ers have a very good run blocking O-line, I’m not savvy enough to determine if they’re more man or zone scheme but it fits what he does well. Being traded isn’t always good for future careers.I think his agent has probably overplayed his hand, given Mostert is likely benefiting from a great system with excellent blocking. The trouble is the Niners are smart enough to know they can slot in any of their rotational backs and still get production.
Mostert and the Niners are better off together than apart.
