Saints' Mark Ingram: Expected to keep starting job
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ingram would figure to retain his starting running back position even if the Saints sign Adrian Peterson (knee), Larry Holder of The Times-Picayune reports.

Ingram rushed for a career-high 1,043 yards while averaging 5.1 yards per carry and scoring 10 total touchdowns last season. That came despite him getting only about four more carries per game than backup Tim Hightower, who has since joined the 49ers in free agency. Coming off another knee injury, it's likely that Peterson would fill the spot vacated by Hightower's absence. After beginning his career with Pierre Thomas and Darren Sproles around, Ingram is no stranger to splitting New Orleans' backfield workload, so the potential addition of Peterson shouldn't alarm fantasy owners all that much.

Saints' Josh Hill: Present for offseason training activities
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hill (leg) was present at the Saints training facility Monday for the start of the team's offseason workout program, reports Josh Katzenstein of the Times-Picayune. Hill broke his fibula last December was finished the season on injured reserved.

In addition to his broken leg, Hill was also sidelined early in the season with a sprained ankle. In all, the tight end appeared in only nine games in 2016, finishing with 15 receptions for 149 yards and a touchdown. While his overall numbers were underwhelming, Hill quietly become a key member of the Saints offense as a versatile blocker and occasional pass catcher in his fourth season. In fact, he was playing about 66 percent of New Orleans' snaps over the seven games before he suffered the season-ending injury -- a likely contributing factor to fellow tight end Coby Fleener's disappointing first year in New Orleans. Assuming Hill is at full strength, which is likely given the nature of his injury, he should again see significant playing time for the Saints.

Saints' Erik Harris: Expected to participate in offseason conditioning program
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris will participate in the Saints' offseason conditioning program, reports ESPN's Mike Triplett. He is also expected to be a full-go in time for training camp after tearing his ACL this past October.

Harris, who spent the prior three years in the Canadian Football League, earned a roster spot with New Orleans last year but appeared in only four games, netting one tackle before suffering a season-ending knee injury. Even if Harris is able to return from injury at full strength, he will have to compete for a roster spot at a crowded safety position.

Saints' Hau'oli Kikaha: Back in workouts
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kikaha (knee) was present for the beginning of the Saints' offseason workout program Monday, Josh Katzenstein of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

Kikaha missed all of last season after suffering his third torn ACL since starting college at Washington in 2010. That unfortunate occurrence followed an impressive rookie campaign in which Kikaha finished with 52 tackles, four sacks, and four fumbles forced. Although the Saints will rightfully be cautious with Kikaha going forward, having him participate in offseason workouts represents the first step in ensuring he returns to the fold this season.

Saints' Willie Snead: Present for start of workouts
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Snead reported Monday for the start of the Saints' offseason program, ESPN's Mike Triplett reports.

Snead rejoined his teammates despite not having signed his exclusive-rights tender, which would earn him only $615,000 this season. After catching 141 passes for 1,879 yards and seven touchdowns in two seasons since entering the league, Snead is clearly more valuable than that -- especially to the Saints, who traded wideout Brandin Cooks this offseason. With that in mind, Snead has decided to show faith in the belief he and New Orleans can reach a long-term deal in the near future, thus making any holdout from team activities unnecessary.
