PFT-Bryant McKinnie, Nnamdi Asomugha on Saints’ radar

Bryant McKinnie, Nnamdi Asomugha on Saints’ radar | ProFootballTalk
The Saints could be preparing to add a couple of former Pro Bowlers — albeit former Pro Bowlers who haven’t played at a Pro Bowl level recently.

Both left tackle Bryant McKinnie and cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha are on the Saints’ radar, according to the New Orleans Times-Picayune.

McKinnie hadn’t previously been linked to the Saints, but he said in an interview on WNST in Baltimore that the Saints have shown interest in him. A source told the Times-Picayune that there were “general” talks between McKinnie and the Saints, but nothing more than that. After losing Jermon Bushrod in free agency, the Saints would like to add a left tackle. McKinnie started all four postseason games for the Ravens and is now an unrestricted free agent.

Asomugha has met with the Saints, and the Times-Picayune reports that the Saints view the choice of whether to come to New Orleans as Asomugha’s to make.

I'm no one.

I don't think our DBs are as bad as they're being made out to be. I think if you want instant impact a proven, effective pass rusher is the answer. Hicks and Jordan are going to help a lot but we still need that edge rusher to really put pressure on the opposing O line. Just that one thing could transform this defense into a top 15 unit.

Not that we couldn't stand to upgrade our DBs. I just think that's the most important part.

He was on our team already and from what I heard held out because of Payton(he couldnt talk with him once he signed). And so was Vilma when he was debating. But he signed within the first day of FA. Nnamdi is still waiting to make a decision.

I haven't seen any figures made public, just speculations.

Re: New Orleans Saints Better Off Not Signing Nnamdi Asomugha

OMG, I can't believe some people still want to see an aging CB in a Saints uniform. The Saint's will be better off spending the money on the D Line and a OLB who can generate some pass rush, if this happens our current CB will look to be all pro.
If its gotten overlooked still need a LT way more than we need Nnamdi A.. Let him go back to California and get over paid for his services, seems like we have enough of that already with Will Smith and Johnathon Vilma regardless if they restructured their contracts.

I don't care how old or young they are, I want to see a good CB in a Saints uniform.

Re: New Orleans Saints Better Off Not Signing Nnamdi Asomugha

That he hasn't signed yet should be a huge tell. Clearly teams have seen the hysterical tapes of his ineptitude in man or zone coverage, his lack of desire to tackle, and his overall confusion. If he was even half as good as he was hyped to be he would have been worth keeping by the Fecals. Three weeks in and no contract?

Yeah, sign him. Over pay. Cripple us further.

We have good corners in Lewis , Greer and Robinson. Rob Ryan will put Robinson in a place where he can succeed. Robinson is still young, give him a chance. We certainly know he didn't have much of a chance last year under that no coaching idiot Spuds. Greer was a good corner opposite Porter a couple of years ago, there no reason that he can't return to that same guy.
