Gold meets with Saints officials

By Adam Schefter
Denver Post Sports Writer

In at least his fourth free-agent visit, Broncos linebacker Ian Gold spent Wednesday meeting with New Orleans Saints officials.

The Saints, about $8 million under the salary cap, have the resources to sign Gold. But they do not have a glaring need for him.

The Saints re-signed weakside linebacker Derrick Rodgers, and plan to shift last year's third-round draft choice Cie Grant to weakside linebacker. At 217 pounds, weakside linebacker is the position Gold is best suited to play.

Plus, the Saints' coaching staff has expressed concerns about the condition of Gold's knee and the anterior cruciate ligament he tore in October.

Gold also has visited the Falcons, Lions and Bears. The Broncos pulled the offer they made him off the table and it is now considered a longshot that Gold will wind up back in Denver.

Eh, you\'re just trying to get my hopes up, aren\'t yah tweeky. My initial reaction to the draft last year was to spout obscenities and piss everyone around me off. I\'m hoping for good things this year, and I don\'t think we\'ll see a suprise in the first like we did last year.

Many of us weren\'t surprised by the DT pick.
It seems like 2/3 wanted CB, 1/3 wanted DT. But my memory sux.

I don\'t remember it being that many, but you could be right, my memory sux as well. When the trade went down, I just knew that we were going after Trufant, which made me happy. When Sullivan\'s name was called, I was in the car with my mother and ex-girlfriend, and I just started cussing.
Hmmmm, Maybe that\'s why my ex dumped me. She always complained that I put football ahead of her on my list of priorities. :P Oh well...

saints draft clayton from lsu
Yeah, that addresses a major need. Might as well draft Philip Rivers in the first.

The waiting drove me mad....
I don't want to hear from those that know...
Everything has changed, absolutely nothing's changed


Eddie is a....draftnik?
