Possibilities for a Veteran QB

According to the latest rumors from SI, the Redskins would be willing to part with former first round pick, Patrick Ramsey, for a 4th round pick. I think that would be a good deal for a quality QB, without having to break the bank. He has connections to New Orleans having played at Tulane, and would be a good alternative should the Saints want to bring Leinart along slowly. Although, I believe Leinart is the most NFL-ready QB in the Draft. Even still, Ramsey would make a really great back-up.

RE: Possibilities for a Veteran QB

John Clayton was on the Mike & Mike show this morning, and claimed that he thinks Ramsey could be had for as little as a 6th round pick, to which Greenberg quickly replied with, "hey, I'll give them TWO." (He's a Jets fan, btw).
Wouldn't bother me, regardless of who we pick, I would prefer that they not see any action during their first year.

Let's average it out. We'll say a 5th. So, you would be willing to give up a fifth for Ramsey?

Introducing THE starting QB for YOUR 2006 New Orleans Saints.....Patrick Ramsey.

Does that answer your question? :P

That does not sound bad. I feel that it would allow us to concentrate and other areas this team needs fixin in the draft if we were to go that route.

Gibbs is a Head Coach that can evalute talent. He doesn't need the best QB to win, just a smart game manager. He won a SuperBowl with Mark Ripien for gods sake. If Gibbs doesn't think he's good enough to be a backup, what's that say?

I'd still rather have Kitna.

For a stop-gap, 1 year and your done, quick fix? I'd rather have Kitna too, but I wouldn't be opposed to Ramsey, either, especially so cheap.

Do you expect the Saints to contend next year?

Glad to see that you agree, FJ. I think Ramsey would be well worth a 5th round pick. I believe that Ramsey has a lot of talent. He has been given a raw deal by the Redskins over the last several years.

I'd take the chance for a 5th or 6th rounder. Ramsey has a great arm. He was highly regarded the year he came out. However, after he received the David Carr treatment, he's kinda' skiddish in the pocket now.
