Who is left out there do improve our Defense?
 
Letīs just say we sign Grubbs and loose Nicks. Whoo else do we need to take care of - excluding Brees? What players are still out there to improve the Defense, especially what Linemen, that we can possibly afford, so no talking about Mario Williams please :)

Has anyone got a list of all Defensive free agents for this offseason

I hope we sign that Hawthorne guy from Seattle because I've heard good things about him

Here's the list for defensive linemen and you can see the rest of the defensive positions as well:

Out of the big time names available in the FA pool, Jason Jones DE/DT from Tennessee hasn't yet signed with a team, and reportedly only SEA and STL are showing real interest towards him.

If the price was right, he could be a really good signing for the Saints, and he could be an effective pass rusher in Spags schemes. The good thing about him is that he is fairly versatile, so he can line up on various spots - much like Mario Williams - which makes it harder for the opposing O-line to scheme against him.

Thanks for the list, but to be honest I donīt know all the players on that list.

the good part is the free agent market is glutted with d- linemen . i think we could get a good pass rusher at a good price

Well, I don't think any of us really know all of them. ;-)

I am still not convinced its ALL about the players. GW was a big part of our problem.

Thanks to GW my 3 year old daughter now knows what a Blitz is.

Even if the lack of pass rush wasn't all about the players the Saints had on the defensive front 4 - and I do agree with that - they still need additions, because they only have 4 DTs on the roster: Ellis, Johnson, King, and Miller.

They need at least 2 more for the rotation, and I'm not convinced that this existing group can get it done no matter how good the schemes are or how well they're coached up.

Hargrove is an UFA, so maybe they should bring him back to the black and gold?!
