Keep him and follow his off season rehab fairly closely. How old is this guy anyway? It's harder to bounce back after a few years.

He is 26 (5/30/1985) so he should be fine age-wise.

He hasn't had a lot of injuries in his NFL career except for couple of short term injuries with the Chiefs, so that shouldn't be a concern for the Saints' FO.

The FA pool is not that great when it comes to DEs and those that would be great pick ups for the Saints may not be fit within their allotted cap space. Also, this coming draft class isn't really strong DE-wise, so it might be very hard for the Saints to find a rookie DE with starter (or regular rotation) potential.

Therefore, McBride might be a good short term player for the DE rotation, which under Spags will require a number of DEs in order to be effective. The Saints might look for the tackle position to make the biggest improvements in creating more pass rush, because the coming draft class is bountiful in regards to DTs that have potential to be day-1 starters.

Another way to go might be to try and draft players that have the potential and the ability to line up in various defensive positions like Ronnell Lewis the Oklahoma LB/DE and/or Derek Wolfe the Cincinnati DT/DE. And, consequently, this is the way I would like to see them go, because of the variety of defensive on field audibles it would make possible.
Why not coach a rookie up to a defensive end position? I do believe it has been done before?

I'm thirsty. If I stand up, I'll get some water. If I stay here on this bench, I'll stay here.
