Tagging him is okay but I wish a contract was signed. we need him but the tag price is a bit high for him IMO.

upping his price?
almost 9 million for 1 yr?
i can think of at least two players i'd rather pay that kinda money to than grant.............but, as i said before..........i'll give him another yr........this may be the ,,,,"all things work together for the good" year that we make that superbowl run............
we certainly could do a lot worse..........but, could we do better? at least a maybe enters my mind........
i do sleep better with payton at the helm...............smitty

The question is ? Will Grant play with the same intensity that he's played with his whole career or will he go in the tank because he's been tag ? Remember, the last thing he wanted was to be franchised. I just hope it don't affect him in any way and he can sign a long contract.

I don't see how it would work to his advantage to tank it this season. Besides the fact that we've possibly turned the corner as far as being a contender, it would only hurt his value for next years free agency period if he's perceived as someone who tanks.

I think we'll still get a deal done before the season, but if it doesn't get done I still think he'll play hard.

He is always great against the run and chasing after the QB, no matter if he catches him or not. He seems to always been one of the top D-linemen against the run.

Great news

I like C. Grant.. i hope the Saints complete a long contract to keep him here for years to come.

Resign Stinchcomb & H. Thomas next.
