Saints | No Jones Talks - posted at KFFL (http://nfl.kffl.com)
5:38 PT: The Times Picayune reports New Orleans Saints officials said they have not met with New England Patriots officials this week to discuss a possible trade for S Tebucky Jones. "I haven't talked to anyone with the Patriots," Saints GM Mickey Loomis said. "There's nothing going on." Two team sources said Monday that a third-round pick was the Saints final offer, but the Patriots are insisting on a second-round pick. "I bet I've had 10 people ask me about the trade," Saints coach Jim Haslett said. "I saw Bill Belichick this morning while I was working out, but he didn't say anything about a trade. There's nothing to report."

Can someone please clear some things up??

What's really goin on?!?

pak n creole t chat about whats really going on:

creole t: what is really going on with jones, i read on KFFL that has and loomis deny any trade talks w/ NE. Whats going on??!!?

pak: they are most likely just a front b/c it was heavily reported that the saints want jones sooooo bad, and they are trying to call the pats bluff on keeping him. if the pats were to keep jones, they would have 10 mill against the cap in just safetys

creole t: so if they deny it, then it is more likely the 3rd rounder will go through

pak: ok, here is what most likely happened, the saints called the pats about jones and to see what compensation would be, they said 2nd rounder min.... but the saints would only go 3rd round... so if they hold out they think that the pats will fold on their bluff of keeping 3 safetys b/c of the 10 mill in cap space

pak: they are probably denying talking to the pats, b/c they arent talking to them, the saints most likely are holding out of continuing talks to see if the pats will call them back with a lowered offer, which i expect they will do

creole t: so if not TJ, then is there quality in the draft?

pak: yes there are a few solid safetys in the draft

pak: Mathis out of bethune cookman, doss out of Ohio State, poleamu**spelling** out of USC, there are definetly some quality safetys, with the top 2 being mathis and doss, followed closely by pol.... mathis is a solid choice for me b/c he can play CB and FS, he had 14 ints in his senior season

pak: i would really like to see him on our team but i dont know b/c i really believe that we will go for DT and LB in teh first round, and i dont know if he will be available where we are now in the 2nd round, so if it goes as i expect it to, we would have to trade up in the 2nd round to get mathis or doss

creole t: thanks pak!!

pak: no prob

any other ?s for YODA?
