With the signing of Olin Kreutz, how fortunate is it to bring in a veteran with that kind of experience?

“Very. Again, this is a unique season, a different season as you know with free agency and training camp going on and he came in yesterday for a visit. One of the things that’s pretty impressive about this guy is that he has played a long time (13 years), he looked at this as an opportunity – and he left a couple other options on the table that paid a lot more money. His main interest was finding the right fit and the right team, and he felt real good about what he saw. He was at practice yesterday. He was scheduled for an early flight this morning, but he never got on it. He just stayed at the Airport Hilton, and fortunately we agreed on a deal today. His experience, his competitiveness, and all those things are important, and certainly will be important for us.”

What a difference Sean has made.

Veteran, Hall of Fame in the future, comes just to visit and check it out and loves what he sees and signs. I want to play for these guys!

I love it.

Love it. Comes to New Orleans and doesn't get on the plane to go back.

This is so awesome, what a great time to be a Saints fan. Makes all those "lean" years seem less painful.
