Briggs visit

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; It has been reported that Lance Briggs will visit New Orleans on Monday. That is of course if he is still a free agent. I believe the main competition for his services is the Tampa Bay Buccaneers....

Re: Briggs visit

You cant help but think that having Vilma in the mix now will help our chances at getting Briggs.

Re: Briggs visit

From the link...

"It's just a false rumor,"' Briggs said Friday evening. "That's all I can say.'"
Wait a false rumor... does that mean it's true?

See what too many years of listening to Nick Saban can do to you!!!!

Re: Briggs visit

Score 670 out of Chicago says that the Bucs are not in the picture. According to them Briggs did not visit Tampa, never had any intention of signing with them and they are not in play at this time. Who knows...

Re: Briggs visit

So is he signing with NO ONE. He seems to be shooting down every rumor.

Re: Briggs visit

Well...no one knows what to think anymore...apparently Briggs is either going to resign in Chicago or he is going to try to open his own strip club. Who knows whats going on...the smokescreens have begun already.

Well... as we know, the media can flip anything by relaying 'just enough' information and/or withholding certain key points...

As Boba mentioned, it was reported that Briggs will visit with the Saints on Monday... The rumors that I've heard concerning 670am in Chicago mention that he is 'Visiting New Orleans' as in, currently here...

If Briggs relays to the media (for the link I posted above) that it isn't true, then he currently isn't in New Orleans visiting... BUT!!! The new story DID say it might not be immediately, but could be headed to NOLA at some point.

Monday could be 'at some point'?


Or do you think they go more for the sensationalism effect and would rather embellish vs. tone it down?

too much to think about...

All I know, is that I want Vilma healthy to fight alongside of Fajita, Briggs, and then a few solid (mid to upper tier) CBs behind them with the ability to move up (if we desire) to acquire Ellis/Dorsey in the draft... I figure this combination gives us a SOLID upper-echelon defense for the next few years to come.

Re: Briggs visit

The fact that Briggs added "that's all I can say" may mean that a meeting with the Saints is a possibility in the future.

Re: Briggs visit

I really think the Saints are talking seriously with Briggs & his agent
as we speak. Makes too much sense and it fits the Saints profile of keeping everything low key until the last minute.
