Better option at CB

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Just random thinking, but what if we could get Aaron Ross around or near the same price as Tracy Porter, which would you prefer?...

Use the draft (if possible) for CB depth and use the money (if any) on the LBs and the maybe the front 4.

My concern is are we going to even have a draft after the punishments come down? We may have to end up doing a majority of our damage in Free agency depending on what the All mighty Goodell strikes upon thee

I would think they would go after Bartell first if they did try to upgrade at corner. We tried to sign him away from the Rams a few years back and he's already familiar with Spag's scheme. Ross would also fit the system being from New York too... though probably more expensive.

With or without Porter we'll be fine at CB.

I don't know why you think this, We got roasted in the secondary all year long. We are severly undersized and injury prone at the corner positions. I give Jabari Greer all the credit in the world for stepping up into the role he was asked to fill, but you cannot continue to put him out on elite WRs Robinson is getting better, and Patrick is still a work in progress.

maybe what he meant was that we won't be any worse without Porter- he epitomizes the undersized and injury players you are talking about

I just don't think the money is there this year to address CB. Of the 3 phases of our D, backfield is actually the strength (cough, cough)

addressing the Line and/or LBers should help the DBs as well; assuming Spagnoula finds ways to get consistent pressure without blitzing 80+ percent of the time

We got roasted mostly because we had no pass rush. Darrell Revis and Namdi Asomagha would have gotten toasted with our pathetic and predictable pass rush last year.

Our CBs are average size. 5'-11" is almost perfect for a CB.

The top 20 prospects at CB for the 2012 draft average 5'-10 1/2"

Since the SB, "T-Pain" has nearly been missing for a good part of last season, playing-wise, because he hasn't been making those big plays or could I be exaggerating. Greer has been more than solid and "P-Rob" still has ways to go, despite his upside.........
