Default Saints to release Mike Karney / FB. Any interest?

Saints are set to release Mike Karney. He's basically a road grader FB...but not a huge catch/run threat. Reminds me a lot of Dan Kreider honestly.

Might we have any interest?

yeah he's a good fullback in the and a good blocker and don't underestimate his receiving/carrying skills

i think there would be much interest amongst alot of fans.

not sure there will be from the coaches though. gotta think he'd be an upgrade over c. davis although i think w. parker averages more ypr than the gale sayers like reggie bush.

No, we are a finesse passing team now.

I think he would be a good pick up if we dont get someone in the draft but he isnt a player that should be signed for much more than 1-2 mil

God I hope so. Move McHugh to Te and let Karney block for Willie and Mendy.

Aint no way.

If he can't catch out of the backfield, he is a waste of a roster spot. when he comes in, he signals one thing. RUN.

We went two years now without a road-grader fullback. As much as I would like one for the I formation... I also don't want an i formation which telecasts our plays.

He can catch the ball out of the backfield though. In 2006 he had 3 TD catches in a game against Dallas. He's just not asked to much, it's not his forte.

And that is my point. Think how many times Davis was asked to catch the ball out of the backfield.

The years of the one-dimensional player on this team is over, thank goodness.
