He's projected as a late 2nd or early 3rd round pick. He may or may not be there.

You need the best available defensive player. Your offense doesn't need anything more.

This is something that we both can agree...

He has been a backup in a starter position for the last 3 years. No thanks.

But that's not his fault now is it?

Even though I have personally bashed Shanle on this board in numerous threads and called for the FO to get rid of him, I think he could still be a average to good backup in that type of a limited role.

If Spags, SP, and the FO are going to bring in new young LBs, to add to the already young LB corps - and additionally the uncertainty surrounding Vilma's future - I wouldn't mind seeing Shanle play out his last contract year with the Saints while providing some veteran leadership to those young LBs.

I won't shed a tear if he's gone, but I'd rather see them release Herring than Shanle if it came down to choosing between those two guys with similar salaries/contracts.
