which is also another screw up for KC.. Dorsey does play the run well but not in a 3-4.. he isnt a huge plugging DT like pat williams, etc.

Re: SAINTS DT Discussion

I like the Dorsey idea. He was a force in the middle at LSU. What's his contract status?

Re: SAINTS DT Discussion

The Saints need a big run stuffer for sure. Ellis gets alot of love around here and he's clearly the Saints best DT. But, he's along way from being a great player. A true run stuffer beside him would free him up more for sure.

Big money, you're talking then .... isn't this the year of the DT and DE in the draft? Overpaying we should not be doing!

Re: SAINTS DT Discussion

Casey Hampton will be a FA after this season as well, and we all know Pittsburgh never pays its FA's to stay...

True. With that said, he's a extremely important piece to that defense. He's a big reason, no pun intended, that their linebackers are as effective as they are. Look at the type of money Haynesworth went for last year. Hampton and Wilfork might not be as a premiere player as Haynesworth, but it's going to take an arm and a leg to acquire their services. Now unless Bush and Grant aren't on this team next year, I don't believe they're in our financial constraints. Also with the uncertainty of the '11 season, teams are going to be reluctant to dish out massive multiyear deals to big name free agents. I believe their best bet will be staying with their respective teams for guaranteed money over a short period of time. I think we're going to see a larger than usual use of the franchise and transition tag this offseason.

Everyone is entitled to be stupid, but some abuse the privilege.

All little common sense goes a long way.

Most Pittsburgh fans have come to terms with the fact that this is Hampton's last season as a Steeler. That being said, the franchise price tag might not be a terrible option for Pittsburgh as, with the exception of Fat Albert, the DT salaries aren't too horrible.
