Current Saints DT's under contract...

Sedrick Ellis

Anyone think we might wanna schedule a visit or two with a DT?

A decent DT will eat up 3 to 4 million of cap, and we're quickly running out of cash.

I think Swanson Miller and Mitch King are under contract. Either way, at the moment we probably have one of the worst group of DTs in the league.

Should Vilma be released, and Lofton or another MLB signed; not sure we'll have the cap space...

And Condon is "advocating what is best for his client" - not sure we'll see an improvement...

I guess it all depends on if the Saints are stripped of their draft picks or at least some of them, because they could be looking at this year's DT draft class and thinking that they'll get two guys from there.

It might be that they just plan on drafting couple of rookie DTs, who'll be thrown straight into the fire under Spags' tutelage, and hope that they'll get the production they need out of them while molding them into what they want.

I mean, it could be a recipe for success or disaster... only time will tell, but at this point in time my belief in Spags' skills to groom and coach up a player are so high that I'd like this idea.

Bring back Franklin and then draft one. I still have plenty of faith in Ellis and I think we should be fine with Franklin, Ellis, and Johnson rotating as our main 3. Jordan should also see more time in the middle on passing downs.

We need another quality DT. I mean a dominant guy who can show up the rest of that group easily. Of course we have to pay someone to do that.....thanks Drew.

Agreed papz. I think Franklin would be willing to sign another 1-2 year deal, and with as deep as this draft class is with DT's we could snag some real quality with our second rounder. Assuming we still have that pick by then of course. goodell

Rather have a good DT or Drew Brees?

I thought so..
