Re: Should the Saints pay Lance Moore?

He would have to want an extreme amount of money not to keep him. He's a proven commodity wheras Harper and AA are not.

We can do without him. We probably need that money for Drew, Jahri, and PT.

Tender him low and hope someone bites. Unfortunately for him, its a position of strength for us.

...in the SB, after the Shockey TD, when Payton called the 2-point conversion, he said "I want Lance Moore". Lance is staying in NO.

If keeping him means we can't re-sign Jahri Evans or Pierre Thomas, you still want him?

Why would that be?

Besides, other than Drew, no one in Sean Payton's offense is indispensable.
Remember when Deuce got hurt? Everyone was "oh my God, we are screwed at RB". What happened?
Remember when LeCharles Bentley left to go to the Browns? Everyone was "oh my God, we are screwed at center". What happened?
Remember when Faine left to go to the Bucs? Again, everyone was "oh my God, we are screwed at center". What happened?
Remember when Brown got hurt? Everyone was"oh my God we are screwed at LT".
.. and whoever Carl Nicks replaced (his name escapes me at the moment) ... you get the idea

I would love to see Lance, PT, Evans, all of the offense back. If they don't, for whatever reason, well, too bad, but the Saints offense doesn't suffer from missing any one player other than Drew, and we know that because we have seen it the past 4 years. There will be no cap next year, so if the team can secure players now with big salaries should they decide to keep them and not hit a cap wall in 2 years.

I'm not following you at all.

Lance is replacable. If signing him to big money means we can't sign Evans, Brees and PT, then I say we let Lance walk. We can't sign every one of our free-agents to more money. We were already up against the cap anyway.

Personally I don't think Lance will demand too much but we're speaking hypothetical anyway.

There will be a cap, and rules prevent us from exploiting 2010 for 2011 cap relief.

On the list of players we must re-sign for bigger money, Lance Moore is way down the list.


Oh and for the record, I wasn't one of the ones who said we were screwed by ANY of those losses. And it was Nesbit that Nicks replaced.

Yeah, if it comes down to it Lance Moore is replaceable. Hopefully, it will not come down to that, really want him to stick around. Fortunately for the Saints, they have a very good track record in developing WR's.
