Quizz to the Aints

He playing for all the division rivals now?!

https://www.cbssports.com/nfl/news/saints-sign-veteran-running-back-familiar-to-nfc-south-to-compete-behind-alvin-kamara-latavius-murray/

The New Orleans Saints are shaking up the back end of their running back rotation, adding veteran running back Jacquizz Rodgers and waiving running back Robert Kelley, head coach Sean Payton revealed at his press conference Saturday. Rodgers, a fifth-round pick in the 2011 NFL Draft, has played eight seasons with three different teams. He has spent seven of those seasons in the NFC South, playing with the Atlanta Falcons from 2011 to 2014 and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers from 2016 to 2018.

Rodgers, 29, has 545 carries for 2,067 yards and nine touchdowns in his career, averaging 3.7 yards per carry. He had 33 carries for 106 yards (3.2 yards per carry) and a touchdown in a reserve role for the Buccaneers last year. 

Rodgers will be battling for a running back spot on the Saints' roster, which has Alvin Kamara as the starter and Latavius Murray as the de facto replacement for Mark Ingram, who signed with the Baltimore Ravens this offseason. 

Dwayne Washington is a candidate for the final running back spot in New Orleans. In his first season with the Saints, Washington had 27 carries for 154 yards as the No 3 running back, averaging 5.3 yards per carry. Undrafted free agent Devine Ozigbo also a case for the No. 3 running back job, but will need to outperform Rodgers and Washington in the preseason. 

Kelley had 168 carries for 704 yards and six touchdowns in his rookie season with the Washington Redskins in 2016, but just 66 carries for 202 yards and three touchdowns since (3.1 yards per carry). The Saints signed Kelley earlier this week.

Didn’t even know he was still in the league. I remember that one highlight where he tricked Earl Thomas and people proclaimed him to be a good rb lol

he'd get a penalty for lowering his head now, according to the refs in thursday's game

Quiz has good hands, can pass protect, and has amazing juke capability, but is molasses slow. I’m never gonna hate on my fellow short guys making it in the NFL, Sproles and Tim Dwight being all time faves...except for Tyreke, that guy is a bum of a human. And what’s his face who was on the Ravens as well.

Yeah in that 2012 playoff game. He had a couple of good plays (picking up that block in that same game when we drove to kick the game winning field goal) but other than that he was just serviceable.

Played with Kotter in Tampa for a couple of years.

Wonder what this says about the Aints RB situation?

Dont think they had anyone behind Kamara. This is probably last resort

Surprised they didn't try to pick one up in the draft with Ingram gone.

Whatever. Flip the Saints.

It is what it is. Quizz is no threat at all so this is really a no story regarding the falcons

quickly turning into a Quizz appreciation thread.

we must have watched this tape prior in our draft prep

I remember the first time I saw him.  He tore apart a VERY GOOD USC defense.
