New Orleans Saints landed the biggest free agent in the offseason
 
1 Attachment(s)
Literally, it's hard to argue that the New Orleans Saints didn't pluck the biggest free agent off the market this year.

See, despite the team's reasonable statistical ranking against the run last season - New Orleans ranked a middle-of-the-pack 16th overall, allowing 112.3 yards and 4.3 yards per attempt - there was an obvious hole that required a plug.

And, well, you have to figure that Shaun Rogers and his 6-foot-4, 350-pound frame can plug a man-sized hole.

So the Saints lured the defensive tackle in March with a one-year, $4 million deal and the likelihood of team achievement. Because Rogers' previous 10 NFL season have been spent in Cleveland and Detroit, franchises that couldn't find the postseason with a searchlight, map, GPS and posse.

"The proof is in the decision," Rogers said. "I had other options and, obviously, I chose this place because of the ability to win and to win now."

I think it is so cool that we "attract" people form other teams

Ellis/Rogers/Franklin is a nice 3 rotation.

Well...he certainly is big.

The Saints were sharp in signing him before the lockout. He has played for some dogs and I'm hoping that he will be a bad dude.

Pre-season didn't show me anything but that could be by design.
