This a good move. We get a solid football player and much mor flexibility in the draft. Now we can really pick BPA (hopefully BPA defence). I would still like to see us draft that DE from USC Griffen is it not? But would be equally happy with LB or a stud DT.

After dumping salaries and watching free agents leave, the defending Super Bowl champion Saints have signed a signficant free agent. (Apologies to Zak Keasey.)

Defensive end Alex Brown agreed to terms on a two-year contract, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Signing aging linemen rarely works out well, but Brown's solid reputation remained intact last year in Chicago.

He will help the Saints defend the run at a clear trouble position on the team. We still expect them to draft a defensive end early, but Brown makes the need less desperate.

I'm no one.
Who are you?

Agreed. The DE position just got a lot deeper and more talented. No need to draft for the position anymore. DT or LB hopefully.

Re: Per Adam Schefter: Alex Brown Signs 2-yr Deal!

Only question I have about him....Is he stout enough at 260lbs to play LDE going against the opponents strong side running game. He has played exclusively at Will Smith's RDE position while in Chicago.

now i dont know if we shouldnt attempt to lock it up long term by going DE in rounds 2 or 3......but i can almost guarantee we dont go DE in round 1
