Re: Asante to Saints a "done deal"

I certainly would not count on Samuel being a done deal. It is great news to hear that the Saints are determined to fix this mess of a defense, but there is no way the Samuel deal is done and there is still plenty of work to do even if they get samuel. Getting samuel, trading for Vilma and still loading up on young playmakers on defense is a must. Another CB, DT, LB and safety are still needs. But this whole thing is encouraging to see that they are giving maximum effort.

Good point about Matt Millen. Never count the Lions out of screwing up as long as that joker is there.

One problem with Samuel is he's going to eat up all of the cap just for one guy. It would be great to have him, but only if Loomis can swing a deal and still have money to strengthen some other missing links.

agreed...and i think the best way to save a couple bucks is to hope that we convince someone to move up to the 10th pick so we could move back a few spots and still get the LB or CB they want and load up on some picks in round 2 or 3. That would give us so many more options but finding someone to move up is going to be next to impossible unless someone starts to inexplicably slide on draft day.

At least the front office is talking to defensive players for a change. Don't forget Coach is a very offensive minded. Give him a chance to snag a good player and he will.

Samuel will improve the position of CB on this team. Next address DT and at least two LB's

I'm not crazy about his asking price, but I guess if that's what it takes to put us over the top, then hell, do it.
