I don't see the Saints bringing him back, but who knows. For whatever reason, naked pictures of Sean Payton or whatever, he did fend off Danny Clark and Brian Simmons for his job the past two seasons.

Proof positive that God does in fact smile upon the Saints!

Addition by subtraction.

Maybe the long overdue overhaul of the defense has finally begun.

The guy is always out of position and cannot get off blocks. Why in the heck would we want to keep him, even as a backup?

I'm seen him get swallowed up on plays so many times, that it makes me ill to think about.

Re: Saints | Team may not bring back Simoneau

Because we do not have one under contract now. Thats why. Thats the only reason why. Better safe than sorry. Besides he can play both MLB and WLB. No he is not my first choice but he is the only option we have right now. Sign him to another one year deal and if the replacement are found by camp cut him if he does not work out. He knows the system and that is his only upper hand.

Hagan, I thought we brought Mitchell in as a MLB...albeit we moved him around.

Re: Saints | Team may not bring back Simoneau

Form everything I am reading it sounds like the NYG are going to make a push to keep him. The sticking point seems to be length of contract. He feels he proved himself this year. Against the run I would agree but against the pass he still needs work. Stuck on the east coast I have to watch more NYG football than I like. LOL If he does sign with us good but I would still go after one of the two top ILB in the draft. Just to good to pass up. Problem is we are picking behind the Jets and NE. both teams have them on their radar. The jets would be more than happy to make it pick just to stick it to the Pats. Yep it is that childish.

Dan Connor, OLB, Penn State Sr, 6-3, 233
Connor has the flexibility to play both OLB and ILB, so I have NE leaning towards him. They like flexibility.

James Laurinaitis, ILB, Ohio State Jr, 6-3, 244
At 6-3, 240 pounds and with great speed, Laurinaitis can do it all at linebacker and he has the experience to make an instant impact. Well, with Jenkins off the board, the Saints upgrade its MLB position with the Little Animal. Laurinaitis would be a significant upgrade over Mark Simoneau. The Saints also would get James father, “The Animal” as a supporter, and it’s always nice to have a guy like that on your side.

Never know the pats are always open to deal and they have 5 FA at CB so they may trade down or just take

Malcolm Jenkins, CB, OSU Jr, 6-1, 202, 4.45

They do not believe in picking players for the value they carry in the draft by a rating. They just pick players who play. No hype is usually involved.

I think we should keep Simoneau as a backup and get Mitchell from the Giants at all costs. Marvin Mitchell will be the third option at MLB I think we already have the OLB's figured out but need to draft a couple more.

Throw the bum(s) out. Time to redesign this pathetic defense, even at a cost of hurting the offense.
