Remaining Free Agent Wish List
Here's mine without a whole lot of study:

a veteran backup QB-
Maddox, Frerotte, Rattay, Nall

another inside offensive lineman (assuming we add an OT starter in the draft)-
C Seth McKinney (Mangold is the only impact one to be had in the draft)
G- some of these i don't know too well, Stinchcombs older brother who has been good in TB might get him moving as well too, Reyes Carolina? Neal NE?

another LB inside or out (the more competition and depth the better)-
Petersen at 85% is still way better than what we have had
Arrington i do not believe would come here
Tommy Polley, Cato June
Have Cowart or Claiborne signed somewhere?

a DT but i do not see any too attractive left. i love wroten as a #34 pick. he fell from perhaps being a mid first rounder cuz he had a dubious agricultural business on the side.

i think big money to either of the 2 big V's would be well spent

CB, probably won't be able to get an impact one in the draft unless trading for more picks-
Warfield, Clements, Allen, Azmuh, Fletcher

3 out of any of those would be raeching most of our needs via free agency as Loomis was quoted.

Who do you want?

RE: Remaining Free Agent Wish List
Stephen Neal, Arrington, Allen for me. We can get the rest in the draft :D

RE: Remaining Free Agent Wish List
C Trey Teague, QB Gus Frerotte, we have no chance for Arrington or Peterson but I don't think I'd mind seeing us get Cato June (if we did, it would allow us to get a really good LB in the draft, and also get some OL help), a kicker would be nice but probably too expensive, and if Will Allen is available for a nice price than he'd be a good addition.

What do you mean "as Loomis was quoted?"

Here's a few guys that pique my interest.

1. Seth McKinney--C
2. Melvin Fowler--C
3. Matt Wilhelm--MLB--He's an RFA with the Chargers, might be worth making a run at
4. Levar Arrington--OLB--I can't help myself, he's too awesome for me to write off. After this week, I can dream big enough for anything.
5. Tommy Polley--OLB--not thrilled with him, but he's solid.
6. Ahmed Plummer--CB
7. Will Allen--CB
8. Charles Woodson--CB--not sure if this is a good idea or not
9. Mike Vanderjagt or Paul Edinger--K--Both better than what's available in the draft and should do really well in the dome.
10. Marc Boerigter--WR--big target, if he stayed healthy, he'd be nice to have in the mix as a possession guy. He should be able to run 9 yard hooks all day long.
11. Reche Caldwell--WR--young, affordable, doesn't have to be the franchise guy.
12. Najeh Davenport--RB--could be a good goal line back, always gets great production when GB has used him.

Basically, I'd like to deal with a C, another quality starting LB, and a K through the rest of free agency. But I'd be pleased with any of these other guys.

that was from the Loomis Plan thread Deuce. at the press conference yesterday-

Loomis said the Saints hope to fill most of their needs through free agency and then take the best player available in the draft, which was what they did with the selection Deuce McAllister, even though Ricky Williams was already on the roster and coming off a strong second season in the league.

Good list BMG, didja think about that ID change :wink:

bennet would make for a great foursome with the current cast

LKelley67 03-16-2006 11:06 PM

only foloow up i have found, from pioneer press/

Running back Michael Bennett made his first free-agent visit, arriving in New Orleans on Wednesday. Bennett will visit with the Saints then decide where to go next.
"It was a great visit," Bennett said.
Bennett wasn't sure where he is going next. But he said the Carolina Panthers, Indianapolis Colts and Miami Dolphins have expressed interest.

Anybody know what we're doing about Antowain and Stecker? 4 RBs seem like a little much, especially since Bennett will probably cost some money.

jergensl 03-17-2006 06:15 AM

send antowain packing, keep stecker and draft a rb on the second day.
