Willis McGehee, RB (BAL)- a veteran RB that will accept his job as a role player and i bet he would be cap friendly

this is all a big "IF" with bush

Bad Hagan! Bad! Someone get me a newspaper.

The last thing we need is "Bad Knees" McGehee. The kid barely played his first season because both of his knees were DESTROYED in his last year of college. Everyone is one snap away from a career ending injury, but McGehee is a stiff breeze away from a career ending injury. I wouldn't lay down money that he could survive hurricane season, much less an NFL season. Pass.


On the other hand, with Shockey gone, I wouldn't have a problem with taking on Todd Heap for a little more veteran instruction for Graham. Heap spent most of his career as the primary pass catcher for Baltimore. I would be pleased to see him as a #3 TE with another SB Ring on his hand before he retires. (Yes, I'm a closet Baltimore fan, sue me.)

All are good player I just don't think we need any of them for the money they may want. The only guy I would look at is Tood Heap but he's not going to want to be a 3 stringer TE.

Might the Saints be interested in LB Justin Durant? He would have played under Williams when he was in Jacksonville.

Maybe bring Brian Leonard in to replace an aging Heath Evans, who is also coming off of a serious knee injury.
