Re: Saints sign Jimmy Wilkerson

I really like this move. The Saints have experienced a great deal of success recently by picking up these veterans coming off injuries for bargain basement prices. This frees up the draft for filling the OLB and DT needs in the early rounds.

Re: Saints sign Jimmy Wilkerson

he's 29, not exactly a sack machine.

adds good depth.

looks like Loomis/SP are setting the stage to go BPA round 1

Agreed, unless it comes down to a no-brainer, best-on-the-board situation.

Re: Saints sign DT Jimmy Wilkerson

Saints sign former Bucs DE Jimmy Wilkerson -- 1 yr, $2M. He wanted a 1 year deal so he could bounce back from ACL then hit the market next year.

Nice job Loomis. You keep hitting those singles and doubles bud.

Re: Saints sign DT Jimmy Wilkerson

How could he pass a physical? I thought he tore his ACL during the Dec 27th game against the Saints.

Fast healer!

Re: Saints sign DT Jimmy Wilkerson

Quality rotational player that hopefully will make an impact. I'm ready for a disruptive DT.....maybe in the draft or possibly a trade.

Re: Saints sign DT Jimmy Wilkerson

Good sign. Solid player to add to the rotation. We could still draft a DE for some youth into the position if the right person is there, but I agree that it seems we are certainly leveraging our position for BPA.
