Free Agency Move?

Hey guys.

I keep reading about our need to shore up our line at the DT position and I'll agree we need to make a move here.
I'm honestly terrified that Haz and co will be picking up a lineman from Georgia too high in the draft.

What do you guys think about picking up Warren Sapp on a 3 year deal to solidify the position for the foreseeable future?

Wouldn\'t bother me, some don\'t like Sapp, but he\'s never bothered me. We could use a vocal person on this defense, as long as we don\'t overpay for him. Plus, I would love it when we played Tampa.

Hate the guy, always have.
It probably wouldn\'t be a bad move for the organisation if they only pay him for his play and not his ego, but I don\'t want him in New Orleans even if he plays for the league minimum. I\'m sure we have some cancer player already on our roster (Haz will tell us who it is in October/November), no need to bring in Sapp.

I think there are better players we can get.
Robaire Smith and Cornelius Griffin come to mind.
Besides, Sapp has played the 1-gap his whole career. I don\'t think he\'d do well at the nose or 2-gap.
We got one-gappers out the wahoo.

Griffin hasn\'t played the 2 gap since college. So I guess he\'s played the 1 his entire career too.
But I agree with what you are saying, and Sapp would not be an ideal fit for this team. We do have a plethora of one gappers.

I thought he played the 2-gap. I thought Hamilton played the 3 technique.
But you may be right. I can picture him alongside Stahan.
Oh well. Won\'t be the last time I\'m wrong.
That might be why I haven\'t landed that GM job yet.
