Saints Game Changing Off-Season Moves: Clint Ingram Enters the Picture

Today's game changing move is the one I'm probably most excited about this off-season because of the fact that it both fills a position of need for the Saints and has the makings of being a significant upgrade. It also has the makings of being a complete bust. Still, for some reason, I'm unusually optimistic. If you haven't figured it out already, I am referring to the acquisition of free agent linebacker Clint Ingram from the Jacksonville Jaguars almost a month ago to the day and I think it's going to work out just splendidly. 

To be honest, I wasn't always feeling so positive about this move. You'll remember before the signing, my little scouting report didn't portray such an impressive specimen. After hearing from Ingram himself, however, I quickly changed my tune. Here are a few reasons why I grow to like the move day by day:

  • He is a former Gregg Williams player
  • The Saints showed a little confidence by signing him to a multi-year contract
  • He's only 27 years old, right in the meaty part of the age curve
  • Before a nagging ankle injury, he showed a lot of promise
  • Expectations aren't high and he's flown under the radar; the stage is set for a surprise

Are any of those reasons very solid? Ummmm...no, not really. I'm sure you guys can come up with plenty of your own valid reasons to the contrary and I look forward to hearing them. But with Scott Fujita now out of the picture, I've got to admit I'm a little bit nervous about the future of the position; perhaps my fear has willed me to believe that Clint Ingram is, in fact, the answer. 

Whatever the reason, I've just got a feeling about this one. Sometimes you've just got to go with your gut. Fortunately, the Saints have been making more good moves than bad lately; the odds are in my favor. So add me to The List, Stuart ol' boy, and bookmark this page for future reference because I'm going on record to say I think Clint Ingram is going to be just the guy we wanted. 

Your opinions are welcome as always.
