Byron Leftwich - Interested?

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I think Leftwich would make a great backup. He's young (27) and is a guy that plays with a lot of heart. He's had injury problems, but that's not as big of a deal for a #2 guy. I think ...

Byron Leftwich - Interested?

I think Leftwich would make a great backup. He's young (27) and is a guy that plays with a lot of heart. He's had injury problems, but that's not as big of a deal for a #2 guy. I think he could be the type of player that would provide a spark if he were called on in an emergency and could scratch out a few wins if [that which must not be mentioned] ever happens. I wonder how much he would cost.

1st round picks who are released or traded seem to be running in the $1.5 million or so per year for 2 year contract ranges. That's the ballpark that both Harrington and Carr are making right now.

I would definitely sign him, one as a backup, and 2 to prevent ATL from getting him.

I think he will be a starter again for somebody.

It definately wouldn't hurt to bring him in for a look. People year after year complain about Bouman and Martin, if you want a solid former NFL starter backup, dish out the dough. I'm fine with Martin... but I wouldn't mind Leftwich either.

Re: Byron Leftwich - Interested?

No thanks. Give me Martin over Leftwich. Shoot, right now I'd take Palko's upside over Leftwich.
Leftwich has only shown himself to be a sub par qb. Too much money for sub par. The Jaguars have had a great defense and run game for years and Leftwich has done nothing with that team.
And my question is, how is a guy named the starting qb one day and a few days later is dropped from the team? Something fishy there.

I would love to see him in a Saints uniform. Maybe Coach Payton could get him to shorten that wind up.

Nope. Anyone who wants him on this team either hasn't ever watched him play, or has seen very little of him. He's AB without the mobility.
