Maybe cut 3 or so to clear up some space for he-who-must-be-signed. (is a Harry Potter reference acceptable on a football message board?)

i hope all these lbs can cover pass catchers also. ive read that lofton and hawthorne arent the greatest in pass coverage. all they need to be really is ok. anyone is better than shanle and a hurt vilma is garbage as well. so all in all these are moves that are going in the right direction. i would be surprised if brees signs something soon (long term deal) im sure loomis wanted to make some moves and deal with brees in the end.

Lofton did have 2 interceptions last year and Hawthorne had 3; pretty decent for LB's not good in coverage...

Yeah, DT!!! Our DB's look fine as is, as far as need goes I'd focus more on DT/OL/TE/WR.

I'm hoping we select the BPA at those positions.

We have had a he-who-shall-not-be-named since '05, so sure, why not?

Papz, how many years does the guy have to do it before the haters finally accept the fact that we have a damn good GM. Best since Jim Finks and I'm wondering if he's already passed him.

WE ARE LOADED FOR A RUN...AGAIN!!!

And we've finally addressed the LB position we've all so desperately wanted.

Dare I say we could have THREE new starters at LB this year?
