New Orleans Saints: 3 potential Alvin Kamara replacements
No. 3 Todd Gurley
Todd Gurley isn’t done being decent at football. Yes, two years after signing a $60 million contract with the Rams, his production fell swiftly.
These things will happen. Gurley still should have plenty of money left over, but a one year, $5 million prove-it deal from Atlanta should be all the motivation he needs to get his football act together.
Gurley will have a revival in Atlanta and should revitalize an oft-stalling Dirty Bird offensive, finally pushing them past the red zone hump. Plenty of teams will be inquiring about Gurley’s services once his contract expires, and New Orleans would be wise to take a gander in Gurley’s direction.
Gurley would provide the Saints’ offense with the same workhorse intensity that Mark Ingram bought to the table. The 25-year-old has also proved effective out of the screen, something Sean Payton will be sorely missed once/if Kamara decides to ship out.
His proven efficiency is a reason Gurley should be considered but only if he continues to be a cheap option.
