NewOrleansSaints.com: The free agency period has started off with its typical flurry around the league. This is your first foray into unrestricted free agency. What were your feelings as March 13th approached?

Ben Grubbs: Initially, there was a lot of uncertainty with being drafted to a team and making my home there and now the possibility of having to leave was definitely on my mind. I just left it up to God and I knew wherever I decided to go it would be the right spot for me. Luckily New Orleans had interest and I had interest in them. I am thankful and blessed to say I am a New Orleans Saint today.

NewOrleansSaints.com: What specifically drew you to make your first visit to New Orleans?

Ben Grubbs: There were a lot of things I had to factor in – winning, the locker room, coaches and location. Location is at the bottom of my list but it is still important to me. When I looked at New Orleans, they had all the variables in the right place. It was an easy choice for me.”

Ben Grubbs: Drew Brees is unbelievable. We had a great running back in the backfield in Ray Rice, but (the Saints) have four here. The arsenal here is unbelievable. It’s going to be great blocking for a lot of those guys. I met Pierre (Thomas) down in Pensacola last year, and just seeing him work out after he was recovering from an (ankle) injury was impressive. I can’t imagine seeing him healthy and seeing what he brings to the team as well as the other guys.”
I like it!

It sounds like we may have picked a winner. I hope so.

Very nice pickup for sure, I don't think the Saints will miss a beat with Grubbs. The Saints have really amazed me over the years how they are able to replace top notch offensive linemen. The offensive line has been solid for a great many years now and should continue to be.

"When you talk about winning, the Saints know how to win. Just the mentality here and the mindset, it’s all about winning. The Saints kind of build the organization around character and winning.”

Drew Brees is a MAGNET FOR TALENT!..
If he wasn't on our roster no one notable would give us a second look..
