Rumor: Tank Johnson to the Saints

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; so part of the contract stipulates that he doesn't reside in New Orleans. Just practice, games and then get the hell out of NO, and oh yeah don't visit your Grandmother in AZ....

For what it's worth I would welcome BC back. He kept it interesting. Same with 08, Whodat, whowatches, saintfan, tweeky (the big troublemaker) and more from BlackandBlue, Lumm0x, Lkelly and many more.

The word i get from the people i know, is that Tank Johnson is completely off limits. He is not even worth discussion. The whole point is that Tank is talented, but he has been in trouble more than once...he has done jail time...he still put himself in position to get in trouble again. He is the complete opposite type of "person" the Saints want to bring in. I thought that would be obvious to everyone on this board who has been praising the type of "person" this FO has brought in to make the team better.

Yeah, that Tweeky, while extremely witty, bright, knowledable, and devilishly handsome and sexxxxy, was trouble, no question.

Imho

Since everyone is adding their opinion. Here is mine. First I think Tank is a thug, I could be wrong though. I say that just from what I see and read. Let's see, He has pitbulls (which can be great dogs ask Vick), owned a bunch of unregistered gun (I bet not the kind past down from generations or hunting guns), and his bodyguard was shot (not that Tank is in danger from being assasinated because he is a world leader). I'm willing to forget about drinking and driving incident at 3am in AZ. Now that is how I came up with MY opinion. The Saints built this team with certain playas, good character guys that contribute on and off the field. Good locker room guys and guys our youth can look to as role models. And that is what it should be to be a Saint. I don't think the team should comprimise that. The Patriots did this for years and won campionships. Now I know some of you will say "yeah but they just signed Randy Moss", yeah they did. But after establishing themselves as a no tolerance organization. And I also don't think he has been in as much trouble with the law as Tank. The Saints need to compete for championships (hopefully win one) for a few years. Then playas will know if they sign with the Saints there is no tolerance for misconduct, if so out the door. That has been one reason the Pats have been successful they play for each other. They play as a team. You are no good to your team if you are suspended for violating team rules or the law. That makes you selfish and not a team playa. I'm not trying to pursuade anyone, this is just my opinion. I rather see the Saint be a competative team for a long time with good guys. Than win one superbowl with thugs and continue to be bad. No one will sign here because they are mentioned in the same breath as Vick, Bengles, Mac Man, and Tank.

I agree whole-heartedly with that last part, Danno.

Bottom line is this: Coach P is not going to sign him if he believes that Tank is going to have "off the field issues". He wants positive locker room presence and positive off the field presence.

Someone posted it earlier...if Coach P believes in him, than I'll take his word for it. If he dosen't....it is probably for the best.
