Send him to Cincinatti. Marvin Lewis LOVES people who have past run-ins with the law.

Are you saying you think we should keep Grant? The guy is getting paid an unbelievable amount of money for spotty play. Sometimes looks great, most of the time, looks like he's exhausted.

really? dont hate us because we have an opinion......i love everything saints including our players that stink but if we had a chance to make our team better i would love to take advantage of that opportunity

getting rid of players doesnt make a team better, but getting something in return for certain players would be great even if those players or picks would be projects

charles grant has had over 3 years to prove his worth to this team....sure he is often injured and of course he is replaced on 3rd downs in favor of mccray

but you cant have a DE make that much money and only contribute to 1 phase of the game......grant is probably our best run stopping DE and it was evident that he was missed in the playoffs but will smith is also a good run stopping DE yet manages to accumulate pro bowl numbers on a regular basis

grant isnt playing up to his contract

we cant expect everyone to play at an all pro level, but we can expect them to live up to their own expectations and grant isnt doing that

Re: Charles Grant's trade value?

Can we just take all of our current active starters to a DNA Cloning facility and replicate them, freeze them until the current group ages into retirement, then thaw out their clones and start all over again?

Re: Charles Grant's trade value?

why do people think a strong side DE has to put up the numbers of the weakside DE? It just does not work that way. Two different postions all together.

Grant deals with the TE chip shots all game long. Smith get the RB after he beats the OT. I would take a RB over a TE all day long.

look at our run defense with Clancy and Grant vs without. Two different worlds.

Not that I like his salary or do I think he worth it. I just think these points are over looked.

Grants value is in moving around in the draft vs. straight out pick value. Salary kinda kills it.

Re: Charles Grant's trade value?

Re: Charles Grant's trade value?

You know something no one else has brought up, is there is still a possibillity, however slight,
that a new CBA could be met before the deadline. The date is march 31st I believe. It wouldn't
effect Grant, but would effect a lot of other players on our roster.

Edit: March 5th. Still possible.

Re: Charles Grant's trade value?

Worth nothing! A huge cap hit, he will miss 4 games and he is avg. Cut him, take the hit and draft the future in rd 1.

Re: Charles Grant's trade value?

If I have to explain to you folks what Grant has done for us during his tenure my first question would be how long have you been a Saints fan?

I'm more loyal to our players than some of you. I'm not a what have you done for me lately kind of guy.

He is going into his ninth season? He is at the end of his career.
Some of us recall what you've done, Charles Grant. Thanks.
