Charlie Clemons

Also from espn.go.com Len Pascarlli reports:Look for the New Orleans Saints to strike a contract extension agreement with middle linebacker Charlie Clemons before the end of the 2002 season, and maybe even in the next few weeks. There have been substantive talks between Saints general manager Mickey Loomis and Clemons' agents, Don and Brooks Henderson, in recent weeks and progress has been made. Minus a new contract, Clemons would be eligible for unrestricted free agency after this season. The pending deal won't put Clemons into the sort of tax bracket recently realized by linebackers such as the Baltimore pair of Ray Lewis and Peter Boulware, but it probably would make him one of the top five middle 'backers in the league in terms of average per year. A onetime CFL player and special teams standout, Clemons has made himself a standout defender, through his hard work and dedication. The sixth-year veteran enjoyed a true breakthrough season in 2001, posting 13½ sacks, and is recognized as one of the most respected players in the New Orleans locker room. The defense has changed some this season, and Clemons isn't getting as many pass rush opportunities, but the Saints want to keep him for the long term and seem poised to make a very solid proposal to him

I think that would be a good thing. Even though I would like to see a little more pop out of him this year. He still has a hugh upside. Once he gets settle in he should hit more big plays

Good for him. The man works his butt off. No he\'s not used like he was last year but if things need to change in the rush department, at least we know he can. Have you heard any news on the Horn situation? We need to get him signed too!

No word on Horn but we do need to sign him. I think that managment wil get a deal done. They seem to be better aboout that now. Wish we didn\'t have to learn that lesson by losing a Joe Johnson during the off season. :casstet:
