If we can get Housh first, that'd be preferable. But, if Moss is sniffing around the Bayou, it is not because he is looking for tix to Tulane games.
If Marquee is out for a spell, use Moss like the whole NFL seems to be anyway.

I have nothing against Moss as a player or outside of the game for that matter. I think he has tremendous talent, but the biggest gripe about him - his whole career long - has been that someone with that much talent should be better. His lack of effort was one of the biggest reasons (off course not the only one) he left Minnesota and went to Oakland. It's hard for me to believe that he would suddenly turn things around in New Orleans, but I guess anything is possible.

In an older thread - before FA began - the question was: which FA WR should the Saints go for. And I thought T.J. Houshmandzadeh was the most viable player in my mind - naturally outside of Moore - I thought he would be available, would probably come fairly cheap, and has the talent to still contribute. So, I would still prefer him over Moss, largely because of the points I listed above.

But, something about seeing Moss in black & gold does intrigue me for sure.

The guy is AWESOME, but ... Let's face it --- too much baggage for the character of our team. His production would not overshadow his shennanigans ... There's a reason why he is still retired.

I look at the character and locker room cancer thing like this...it seems to me like Payton over the years is usually quite willing to put up with 2-3 "head case" players on the roster at any given time. Most of his teams over the years are made up of these really solid "character" football guys, but he'll always have room for two or three productive, talented oddball screwballs on his team, the guys who come with baggage. But he doesn't ever let them control things or get too big headed, and it's never more than just two or three of them on the team at a time, they never get enough critical mass to implode the locker room. You had Joe Horn; you had Shockey; Bush could totally be a bit of a head case or a diva sometimes, you had Hargrove (total head case), you have Hartley who has been a ton of baggage and problems on and off the field, you have Rogers who is kind of a loose cannon etc.

And it almost seems to me like Payton always has room on the roster for 2 or 3 of these "head case" or flaky type guys each year, but that he doesn't ever let their number get higher than just two or three of them at a time -- and I swear it almost seems like it works out sometimes, that when one of them leaves, that's when he brings in another head case, at a totally different position! So I don't know if we have one of those "head case" spots open on the roster right now, but who knows, maybe with Bush gone and Hartley out, we do have room on the team for another head case, in a different spot on the field, and Moss would fit right in LOL
