Saints sign Bobby McCray

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Good signing. He's been effective in Jacksonville and we definitely needed more quality depth here. He could push Grant for time or as stated motivate him to perform....

If there is any player whose future could be affected by this signing, it's Smith not Grant. McCray gives us some insurance in case Smith and the team can't come to an agreement on a contract extension.

New Orleans Saints SNAG McCRAY

Despite the presence of pass rushers Will Smith and Charles Grant in the starting lineup, the New Orleans Saints have secured the services of defensive end Bobby McCray.

Per a league source, the five-year deal is worth $20 million with another $4.5 million in escalators. He'll make $5 million in the first year of the deal.

The numbers imply that McCray will be a reserve in New Orleans.

McCray played in 14 games last season, and started in nine. He had only 3.0 sacks, down from 10.0 in 2006.

Re: Saints sign Bobby McCray

this could possibly allow them to move grant to a dt position on third and long allowing for an all out race to the qb! Helps keep a fresh rotation and allows for some interesting scheming on d

This is absolutely great this will also help keep the linemens off Vilma.

Re: Saints sign Bobby McCray

I don't know, what's up with his drop in production? Is this guy really as effective of a pass rusher as some people are saying?

No clue honestly... might want to go to the Jags board to get better insight on the guy.

Re: Saints sign Bobby McCray

Not a starter anymore. Thats all. If you look at the Jags defense other players got the sacks this year. he forced the QB up into the pocket. Thats his first job, close the back end of the pocket. He will be on the field more than we think. Yes grant will see more time at DT. I love this move. We addressed to arears of need, DT and DE, and we did it with Youth. The retirement home sign is coming down over saints defense. Nice
