ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Tuesday the Saints were planning on having West and Jamaal Charles come in for workouts. According to Schefter, the team also offered DeMarco Murray a shot, but he turned New Orleans down:
After trading Adrian Peterson to the Arizona Cardinals in early October, the Saints essentially operated with two running backs in 2017. Drew Brees had the third-most carries (33) on the team.
There's no reason for New Orleans not to lean heavily on Ingram and Kamara again in 2018. The former eclipsed 1,000 rushing yards for the second year in a row, while the latter had 1,554 yards from scrimmage. Kamara's role in the offense is likely to grow, too, now that New Orleans is well aware how talented the 2017 Offensive Rookie of the Year is.
Should Ingram or Kamara go down with an injury, though, the Saints can trust West to be a solid second option on the ground.
