True, Shanle at vet minimum and as veteran back-up to both outside spots would be fine with me.

Agreed, just leaves a bad taste in my mouth. Also, doesn't make sense to me. We are a high scoring team year in and year out. What does that mean on D; teams are going to have to pass the ball to keep up. So what do we do: we grab a run stopping DE in the draft, a run stopping DT in Franklin, a run stuffing DT in Rodgers and we let the best pass rushing DT we have walk in free agency (Hargrove).

I have been frustrated as I am sure many Saints fans have about the lack of pass rush from the LDE position. First it was Grant who had one good year as a pass rusher, then Brown who came in with high hopes and failed to perform. Now I see the same thing with Jordan. In Spags D rushing the passer from the DE position is priority---worried. Worried because if Jordan and Smith are the starting DEs I see our secondary getting left out to dry all year long...

Yes, mentally Shanle may be one of the best LBs in the game. However his body just cant cash in.

I hope he stays to coach up some of the young LB talent we have, but I prey that he does not start.
