Saints to concentrate on signing Dan Morgan
http://www.profootballweekly.com/PFW...pers022308.htm

The Saints will shift their attention to striking a deal with recently released Panthers MLB Dan Morgan, now that Zach Thomas, who had received an offer from New Orleans, has signed with the Cowboys. Morgan has battled concussions and most recently a partially torn Achilles tendon, but if healthy, he would be a major upgrade over the squad's 2007 middle linebacker, Mark Simoneau, who will become an unrestricted free agent Feb. 29.

Re: Saints to concentrate on signin

Morgan is a beast when healthy, the only problem is he has never stayed healthy his entire career. He has never played in all 16 games, he topped out at 13 in 2005, in 2006 it was 1 and 2007 he was limited to 3. If the Saints do sign him, they better keep looking for a better option, which I think they will. Signing a guy doesn't mean he is a lock to make the team.

Neither Dan Morgan or Zack Thomas excite me at this point in their careers. I hope we don't sign Morgan

Why? Why go after the type of player who won't help us LONG TERM?

Re: Saints to concentrate on signin

I know I'm probably going to be alone on this but I've always liked Dan Morgan. If it financially works out, meaning he's inexpensive, I would love to have him. He's a medical risk I know... but we're desperate at MLB and he's a big time impact linebacker when healthy (though hardly). I think the reward outweighs the risk... but I'd like to emphasize IF and ONLY IF the money is right.

I'd rather keep Simoneau for depth, if DM's clock has been cleaned one too many times.

Anything, a helmet stung limper, a fresh college kid, anything would upgrade the MLB position for this team.
