Ummm...Who's our Center?
 
OK,

Bentley's gone (sniff). The center and LT are the 2 most important OL positions. Who is our center?

Right now, probably Mayberry? Don't fret though, we'll draft a new one.

Starting at Center for your New Orleans Saints Kendyl Jacox...I say we draft Niswanger in the third if he is still there I dont think he will be though

Meh. I see him lasting until the fifth round.

The M.O. of the Saints....let a star go for a scrub to save a few bucks. Never fails.

Can Mayberry play center? Our O-line is looking frighteningly porous! Who is the standout? Maybe Jammal Brown with one year experience? It couldnt be Wayne Gandy could it? Yikes!

Jacox is 2nd on the depth chart. Houser might be in the mix too.

We need a center in the worst way. Only 2 are off the board right now though.

to save a FEW bucks? The browns way over payed for Bentley. I like him and think he is a good center, he was a great guard though. Sit down and watch some game tape, from what I saw last year he did a goof job blocking, but the blocking schemes he called based on the defenses were horrible. Think back to when Fontenot was our center, our line might not have been great(with the exception of Roaf, but they were in the right position. With Bentley it seemed our guys were in the wrong places b/c of an ineffective blocking scheme was called.

Any other year Bentley may have gotten a contract averaging 4 million a year, that would almost be too steep to keep him for center. This year he got 6 million, I would have cried if the Saints had wasted all that money on him. Better a new guy from the draft or let Jacox try for the amount of money saved by not overpaying for Bentley.

Oh...ok

How would it be "wasting" if we resigned one of the top 5 o-linemen in the league, because that's what he was. And who are the Saints using their money on anyway? The way I see it they might as well have payed for him, since they are completely inept at luring quality free agents here. All this money we are "saving" and spending it on no one. Yeah you're right, we're much better off. :roll:

Wanna know how we could've "saved" some money? We could get rid of the dead weight in Gandy and Jacox. Instead, our best player is the one that is let go. Right.

Besides had we signed him last year when we signed Horn and Deuce, we definitely could have got him for a lot less than 6 mil a year. Can't see how people are still trying to find some logic in the Saints' free agent management.

I think we'll pursue Mawae to replace Bentley or Jacox will likely replace LCB ... Jacox is a much beter Center than guard, btw ...
