Okay, Moving on to Trades...

Okay...

it didn't happen with the draft...

...it's cool esé

so what bullets do we have to make a trade for some defensive tackles, ends, maybe a linebacker...

J Brown???

one of the receivers not named Colston???

one of the Tight Ends now that we have a project for Coach P???

McCray, with his mouth, he can sell the trade himself, ask 'em he'll tell ya...

what about another running back with Bell gone?!?

Are we really going to start another season with a 3 defensive tackle rotation without two legit starters?

Is the pass rush from the ends that good?

Re: Okay, Moving on to Trades...

I think everyone is expendable to some degree save Brees; just matters if the deal is right. That being said, I think the most important position to fill right now has to be on the defensive line next to Ellis. We could definitely fill that with a Brown trade(possibly getting a decent OLB too). I think bringing up an OLB through prospects is a lot easier than a DT because of the position's large dependency on physical attributes as opposed to technique and skill(not saying that skill isn't important for a DT too). I'm more willing to accept someone like Stanley Arnoux play OLB than having a newbie DT; and I think a DT has to be the top priority in trades. Our run stopping ability hurt us all season long last year, even against the Colts(though that may have more to do with formations that we played to try to slow down Manning). Contrary to popular belief, we have a good foundation for a defense. I think with 1 or 2 key players we could have a top 10 defense to go along with our offense(which would pretty much have to make us a favorite). As much as I liked Sharper, I thought his impact on the team was slightly overrated; and I firmly believe that Malcolm Jenkins(with a little time in the position) could end up better than Sharper by season's end. I'd love to sign back Sharper, I just don't think it's really a make or break type situation thats being portrayed by some.

We have good corners. We have a top tier MLB, which to me is the most important position on the field. Jenkins will be fine. I think Brown is a huge upgrade over Charles Grant even though they have similar stats. Shanle is one of the most underrated people on the entire team. A few positions and I think our defense could be extremely surprising.

I would imagine the defense making additional strides in their 2nd year in Williams defense. I think we are 1 or 2 role players away from being a force on D so long as the young LBs and safeties step up. I would like to see a two down run stopper and a pass rush/blitz specialist emerge.

What is our greatest need at this point?

Is it still DT? Well we now have seven on the roster... Okay, okay, I know only two are of 1st string quality - Ellis & Hargrove - but it would seem that two more could become solid 2nd in the rotation. Would I be happy with another SOLID guy in the middle - Yes.

Is it DE? We seemed to have really shored up the position by adding Brown & Wilkerson. Don't forget Hargrove can slide out and Charleston is solid depth (for now).

Is is RB? I think it's Hamilton's job to lose. And if he loses it - it'll be to one of the PS guys. Stay tuned to training camp!!

Is is S? Jenkins. Let's just think Taylor Mays with a year of Gregg Williams under his belt. (Still holding out hope for Sharper)

Is it LB? They wanted to draft one. Couldn't get the guys they wanted. I'm sure it's hard to be confident in guys who havent played a season but let's see what happens.

Re: Okay, Moving on to Trades...

J. Brown could be traded but I don't expect anything before camp. Bushrod and Strief are free agents next year. C. Brown is a rookie. An injury to Bushrod or Stinchcomb would open a big hole on the line which J. Brown would easily fill. I personally think the roster is basically set unless a suprising cut by another team or an injury happens to the Saints. Although I would be shocked if a veteran QB like Bulger isn't brought in. I believe the staff really likes Daniel but that would be a huge roll of the dice.

I just don't see the Saints carrying 5 OT on the 53 roster. C. Brown, IMHO, will no go to the PS. Something has to give.
