Free Agency begins March 3rd

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; It appears this is a very deep draft at OL, DL, and LB, & RB. I say we pick S in first round, CB in second round, LB in third round, DL in fourth round, then RB, QB, and K. ...

Free Agency begins March 3rd

It appears this is a very deep draft at OL, DL, and LB, & RB.

I say we pick S in first round, CB in second round, LB in third round, DL in fourth round, then RB, QB, and K.

I think with that draft order in mind we should be targeting LB, CB, and DL in Free Agency.

We should resign Will Smith, extend Colston, and try to keep our TE's.

Free agency is before the draft so Asante Samual should be our prime target.

We can wait untill the end of next year to resign Smith. Heck, we could even Franchise him.
Colston's new deal can wait too.

Re: Free Agency begins March 3rd

Ya know what deep drafts get ya??? no wheres fast. That only mean other teams will get just as better as you. You ALWAYS need to grap the top teir players in a positiong that will get you the better outcome.

S and CB position is going to get us no where. We need to worry about a pass rush FIRST AND FOREMOST.
I don't care who you have at CB or Saftey eventually someone is going to get open. You but a rush on and you limit the time a WR has to get open. Forces the QB to make a throw perhaps a bad one for an INT.

The Giants game proves that point pretty well. Where's Dorsey projected to fall?

Top 5.

We really need to be more active in FA this year. We never do much. There's a Top CB who is from Louisiana in the market this year in Ndami Asoguma or sumtin like that. There shouldn't be many reasons why we can't see this kid in Black and Gold

Re: Free Agency begins March 3rd

I don't know why we always get so pumped just to be let down. We won't be active in FA like every year, it always happens. I don't understand what we're trying to do, we aren't drafting good, we aren't trading, and Free Agency...there's no such thing for us

Your right.
I fully expect us to watch every playmaker sign elsewhere.

If I were GM, I'd sign TE Dallas Clark, CB Asante Samuel, DT Kimo Von Oelhoffen as soon as Free Agency starts.

Draft Keith Rivers or Kenny Phillips at #10

Thoughts????
