Saints utilizing an all-out blitz at Senior Bowl

Saints utilizing an all-out blitz at Senior Bowl- NOLA.com

The Saints are roughly $25 million to $30 million under the salary cap, with most of their key players already under contract through next season and beyond. Six starters are scheduled to become unrestricted free agents in March -- center Jeff Faine, guard Jamar Nesbit, receiver David Patten, tight end Eric Johnson, defensive tackle Brian Young and linebacker Mark Simoneau.

The team will also look into the possibility of signing defensive end Will Smith, receiver Marques Colston and guard Jahri Evans to long-term contract extensions. All three players are set to become either unrestricted or restricted free agents next year.

Re: Saints utilizing an all-out blitz at Senior Bowl

Sign all of these guys:

center Jeff Faine, receiver David Patten, tight end Eric Johnson,
defensive end Will Smith, receiver Marques Colston and guard Jahri Evans

I would call it money well spent.

On the fence:

guard Jamar Nesbit, defensive tackle Brian Young and linebacker Mark Simoneau.

Nesbits future rest on the development of Andy and we always have Goodwin

Then spend any money left on FA. Look for blue light specials because the wallet will be empty. LOL But I could live with it.

Remember Evans and Colston are RFA so at the least work on extensions and get them signed during the year. those two might be close to 10 million in cap by themselves.
