    Not well enough to plug and play.

    Marginal improvement in a few games is not when you step back and pronounce "IT'S FIXED!"

    So what do you think they will do? What position do you think they will replace on the oline? Also how do you think they will do it? Will they use legit draft capital, like a first or second round pick? Free agent?

    To be fair OL has generally been pretty good in run blocking.

    I’m all for keeping Henry at a reasonable price but it’s completely understandable to look at the talent in this draft and say we can afford to let him walk if the price is too high.

    This. If we don’t pay too much, OK. There is a price that woman’s sense. But I bet he wants more. I wouldn’t give it to him.

    Did you see how awful the run approach looked with Dion getting bulk of carries...

    That's what you'd get with any of those scat backs listed...

    Henry burns through arm tackles big time, whereas your new age tradition "receiving" rbs tend get suction cupped into a defensive lineman.... Many snaps I thought the saints DL were going to snap Dion's neck from a suplex....

    Pay Henry, and you're essentially paying the dough for the YAC

    If you want to draft a 2nd, 3rd round rb, that's still fine. We need to move on from Dion anyway.. It's the very thing we did after we traded for DeMarco... drafted an insurance policy in RD 2

    The thing is, we gotta figure (and hope) Deon is gone. So we will have to draft one even if we keep Henry.

    I am wary of a big RB contract, but it would kill me to see Henry leave.

    There have been tons of rookies and unexpected guys that step in and produce, but I don't think it is as plug and play as some think it is...

    Henry himself took over 2.5 years to turn into a reliable consistent back. I'm all for taking a back day 2, but our best chance of being a top team in 20 and 21 is with Henry.

    Drafting a top RB isn't a guarantee and having free agent money isn't a guarantee that we can bring in a top FA pass rusher or whatever. And if we do clear that hurdle and get one, it isn't a guarantee that he will produce like an All- Pro.

    I sort of figure this guy is trolling...has to be...BDH is easily the best back we have had since and perhaps in a few years including EDDIE. To think he can easily be replace either in the draft of in FA is laughable....and yes I realize CJ2K put up insane numbers for a few years...but HE WASN'T a "typical back" nor did he result is a running game one could count on...yes he broke lots of long runs (so does BDH btw), but he also had a whole lot of 2 yards or less runs because he was always looking to break the long one.

    I am not trolling...really think we should not over pay at RB when we can get a good back in the draft.
