The Chiefs are the other team mentioned in wanting Milloy. They need defensive help too and have the money to sign him also. I wonder how good of friends Milloy and T-Buck were in New England? Maybe T-Buck can help get him here. Haz has often said they are always looking to improve this team, I guess now we\'ll see. Huh?

The more I think about it ,this is a no brainer signing for the Saints Milloy is a perfect fit at strong safety for us. We have ample cap room there is no reason not to do this deal other than someone else offering the sky for him. If the Saints ignore this guy as they did Randel Godfrey they will have earned every comment of moron leveled at them.

He\'ll never make it to us. 16 other teams have a shot at him (and his enormous salary).
But we had better take a shot at him.

I think i heard that he and Tebucky Jones didn\'t get along that well. (I might be mistaken)

Note: If we do claim him and his enormous salary, we damn sure won\'t be signing that zillion dollar shut-down corner next year or a big time LB.

Is he worth that? Thats what Haz and Company have to look at. I\'d love to have him. But is he too expensive for the long term?

Sorry about being the buzz-kill

Whether we agree or disagree; its all for Him.

At this point in the quest for the Super Bowl. A bird in the hand is better than 2 mights in the bush. We might sign a super corner next year and we might sign a prime time LB next year. As of right now we have a chance to sign a Pro Bowl caliber saftey. I say do it ! Not if we can, not if somebody says we can, DO IT!

Does anyone know the wavier rules I thought a player with more than 4 years experence was said to be released rather than waived? Which would mean we would\'nt have to eat his big contract he is in effect a free agent. Icould be very wrong on this.
Also with his contract if he is subject to normal wavier rules he may clear waivers anyway.

All the articles I have seen say he was released. Not sure about the rules on this one.

Don\'t get me wrong, I think we should sign him. I\'m just stating the case why we may not.

He could be the missing link. I still think we could grab a SD CB next year any way.

The more I think about this the more I think we should pay this guy all he wants for 1 year. Mitchell will be back next year and we will have options.

If I find out we passed on this guy, I\'ll be the 1st to jump on the \"we\'re stupid\" bandwagan and willingly say \"I\'m a moron, I was SO wrong, and Haz and company are the equivalent of the NFL village idiots.

Why do I get that sinking feeling of crushed hopes?
