That's why I'm hoping that the league won't take away any draft picks from the Saints - with the new CBA, rookies are more affordable than ever.

Here's to hoping that someone like Ronnell Lewis drops down in the draft and falls right into the hands of the Saints on their 2nd round pick.

Re-signing Nicks would be awesome, but Loomis and the FO have a lot of work to do to fill the rest of the roster with virtually no cap to spend if they are able to get Nicks under contract.

So we've made a legit contract offer to Nicks, working on one with Colston(knowing he's worth at least 7 a year), and trying to get an extension done with Brees w/o having to franchise either Nicks or Colston.

Our cap-ol-ogist doing work as usual.

As far as the defense is concerned, there's plenty of under utilized talent there. We just need to coach them up and get them to play how we all know they're capable of playing. Get Jenkins to start acting like a FS, Wilson on the field, continue developing Galette, and we're a DT or two away of being respectable... which is all we need to win a championship.

All little common sense goes a long way.

This is a delight in what has been a trying two weeks as a fan. If Condon said it was a "Respectable offer", I don't know about the rest of you but that speaks volumes in its' self.

I think I see the sun piercing through those dark clouds.

It wasn't Condon, Nicks is represented by Ben Dogra not Tom Condon although they both work for the Creative Artists Agency (CAA).

Dogra also represents f.e. Nnamdi Asomugha, Mario Williams, Adrian Peterson, Patrick Willis, and London Fletcher amongst others.

This Philly article paints a picture of him being a "client-first" type of an agent, which doesn't always equate to just money, which might be good news when it comes to the Saints' chances of re-signing Nicks:

My bad, I thought Condon was his agent. Thanks for setting me straight, Fin.

Respectable offer means it falls between the top of the mountain and the moon.

They will not go lower than X
They are trying to get Z

Saints came in at Y or X.5

No worries, in fact I thought so as well a while back, because it was mentioned that he was represented by the CAA - I thought for sure it was Condon, but Dogra is no slouch either.

Last year this Bleacher Report's agent ranking had him in the 2nd place behind Condon:

If Loomis can pull this off he will be the GM of the year.
