After reports that Saints free agent Running Back Travaris Cadet was weighing offers from the New York Jets, Buffalo Bills and New Orleans Saints (with reports that the Jets had made the highest offer), it looks like Cadet will be returning to New Orleans for the 2017 season.
Can confirm Travaris Cadet has agreed to return to the Saints, per source.— Nick Underhill (@nick_underhill) March 16, 2017
What this means for the future of RB Tim Hightower and/or the Saints draft plans moving forward are unclear, but the writing seems to be on the wall for the Saints to not spend an early 2017 NFL Draft pick on a RB now that Cadet is back into the fold.
ICYMI: #Saints are re-signing RB Travaris Cadet. It's not a move that thrills me, but could indicate a McCaffrey type not in plans.— Deuce Windham (@RevDeuceWindham) March 15, 2017
Contract details are unknown at this point and we will keep you updated once the dollar amounts are announced.
