No activity among New Orleans Saints' remaining restricted free agents today

By Mike Triplett, The Times-Picayune


The deadline for restricted free agents to sign offer sheets with other teams is 10:59 p.m. Central time tonight. And it's highly unlikely that any of the New Orleans Saints' seven remaining RFAs will attempt to sign elsewhere.

In fact, the only restricted free agent in the entire NFL to switch teams this year was former Saints tailback Mike Bell, who signed a one-year deal with the Philadelphia Eagles that included no draft-pick compensation.
However, that doesn't mean that all seven remaining RFAs will immediately sign their one-year qualifying offers from the Saints.
Offensive tackle Jammal Brown has indicated that he isn't in a rush to sign his offer sheet and doesn't plan to attend the start of the team's voluntary offseason conditioning program next week. None of the other RFAs - guard Jahri Evans, safety Roman Harper, tailback Pierre Thomas, receivers Lance Moore and Courtney Roby and linebacker Marvin Mitchell - has announced his intentions yet.

Harper, a fifth-year pro who is a restricted free agent for the first time, is not expected to hold out from any team activities this offseason. If he doesn't sign his tender right away, he might instead work out some sort of injury provision before joining the offseason workout program.
Tailback Pierre Thomas, a fourth-year pro, also said earlier this offseason that he plans to show up for work while hoping for a long-term extension. And Mitchell, a fourth-year pro, is likely to sign his tender in the coming days.

It's not clear, however, what fifth-year pros Evans, Moore and Roby plan to do. All three were restricted free agents last year and were supposed to be unrestricted this year. But the free agency rules changed for this year when the owners opted out of the previous collective bargaining agreement.

PT & Sharper should be the first two worries.

Man oh man. We could live without Brown, but Evans is a key part of the number one offense.
