Saints News, 7/17/15: Khiry Robinson Might Deserve More Appreciation

New, comments

From The Advocate: Khiry Robinson might be the most under-appreciated player on the New Orleans Saints’ roster. Viewed by many as the third banana behind Mark Ingram and C.J. Spiller as the team prepares to enter training camp, the third-year running back might possess the ability to force a conversation about finding ways to get him the ball more often next season....ProFootballFocus.com spent the last week breaking down the NFL’s running backs, getting into the finer details of how players produced on a per-touch basis in various categories. Robinson ranked among the top players in the league in a staggering amount of those lists.
