Oh he's already absorbed. It's too late.

watching him now on nfl network

he's been on for bit. very interesting guy. my mom thought he looked like he could be a model. anyway, off his own website, interesting read on there about him even though some of the info is a bit dated. Id like to think this guy can and will do wonders for the artistic/social side of New Orleans life, work with kids, and social causes. could be be for the defense what Brees is for the offense? a guy who you can really feel proud of even if his stats aren't booming? If he does light it on D, the maybe another NFL "man of the year candidate"? (given for off field, not so much as on field stuff in case anyone forgot). to sum it up, I'm impressed to say the least.

Forgive my superficiality but isn't this the guy that plays the air guitar when he does something well? That screams of geek.
That said, when he's on the field for the Saints I hope to see him playing that fake stringed instrument any time he's on the field.

Player News

The Eagles cut seven-year veteran Dhani Jones, thinning a linebacking corps made crowded by offseason additions. Jones, 29, was largely a disappointment after he joined the Eagles as a free agent in 2005 following four seasons with the New York Giants. He struggled with the Eagles after being moved to the strong side from his natural weakside position. He became expendable after the selection of Nebraska's Stewart Bradley in the third round of this year's draft. Bradley and Chris Gocong, a third-round pick last year, are expected to compete for Jones' position on the strong side. The Eagles acquired weakside linebacker Takeo Spikes in a trade with Buffalo last month.

"In six (6) years in the league (I'm counting 6yrs because he didn't play at all in 2000, so the stats are from 2001-06), Jones played or started in 95 of 96 games, accumulated 446 tackles; 4 sacks; 4 ints for 15 yrds; 22 pass def; 1 ff; and 4 fr. Jones meager numbers might be associated with him playing out of position at SLB, maybe he'll play better at his more natural position at WLB. But don't expect him to push for Shanle's job, he's strictly a valuable veteran backup. Shanle proved his first year with the team that he is the starter, but with the addition of Jones(If and when he signs) and the signing of Brian Simmons, our linebacker corps is a hell of a lot stronger this year. With projected starters Shanle; Simmons; and Fujita; he definitely strengthens the backup position."

Linebackers on the Saints Roster:

50 Mitchell, Marvin LB 6-3 249 22 R Tennessee
59 Koehl, Wade LB 6-2 230 22 R Houston
56 Fincher, Alfred LB 6-1 238 23 3 Connecticut
55 Fujita, Scott LB 6-5 250 28 6 California
54 Evans, Troy LB 6-3 238 29 6 Cincinnati
57 Faulk, Trev LB 6-3 254 25 3 Louisiana State
51 Simmons, Brian LB 6-3 240 32 10 North Carolina
58 Shanle, Scott LB 6-2 245 27 5 Nebraska
53 Simoneau, Mark LB 6-0 245 30 8 Kansas State
46 Sims, Desmond LB 6-3 230 24 R Arkansas
** Jones, Dhani LB 6-1 240 29 8 Michigan(That's if he signs)

The outside LB isn't a lock to make the team!

Saints signed LB Dhani Jones to a one-year contract.

Jones was in the NFL Network studio to announce the signing himself on Thursday. Cut by the Eagles in late April, Jones didn't get much action on the free agent market. The outside linebacker isn't a lock to make the team.

Great guy to have on our depth chart. He has tons of starting experience and should one of our starters go down, he should be able to step in without us missing a beat. I remember a special they did on him a long time ago on ESPN... he fits this city perfectly. He's a musician, artsy, and not an outspoken guy.

Cool Good Move

This is an awsome signing. We are going to have one of the most talented depth charts on both sides of the ball in the NFL. Screw the Bears or Ravens in fantasy football, I'm picking up the Saints as my DST.

Talking March 2006 Arrest

Did anyone read about his arrest in Miami last year? I thought I was going to see assault, drug possession, or some kind of sexual offense like so many players as of late. But he just refused to stop dancing outside a nite club after an officer instructed him to do so. Sounds like my kind of guy. Think of all the Penalty yards we can get hit with for Unsportsman-like conduct when he decides to dance after a great play. Classic!
