Maybe Payton was the reason for the lack of LSU players on our teams.

I think that's the easy button.

These guys are all older now and signing inexpensive deals to come home whereas previously they were still chasing big contracts and we didn't have the cap space every year like we do now.

That push for Watson and falling a short forced the team to made difficult decisions and now they can use the cap towards other players.

Considering per capita Louisiana and LSU put a ton of talent into the NFL, now a few of those guys are coming home.

That’s exactly who Darrel Williams is lol. He had over 45 receptions and 450 rec yards last year
What can Williams give that MI can't? He's not the back I had in mind. I'm speaking of someone in the mold of Bush/Sproles, Cohen, etc.

You should watch his tape from last year. He is fast in pads, so to speak, is a great route runner (for a RB) and he can make big plays.

He’s always in a time share and never been RB1, meaning he is OK if he’s not getting a lot of touches and can come in and get into the rhythm of the offense fast.

He’d be a good backup.

It's possible that i'm thinking of when our offense had huge success, we had a back for each skillset. I'm curious what can he give you that MI can't.

It doesn't even matter. MI will be a piece of the puzzle while AK is out, but he's not at the point in his career where he can carry the load solo for up to 6 games. He got nicked in a limited role last season and missed time, so who do we turn to if it happens again this year? You need 3 quality backs on any roster without a suspension to worry about, and the Saints aren't putting all their eggs in the basket of an UDFA and/or Washington while AK is likely suspended. I don't blame them.
