David Hawthorne signs with Saints

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; There is only one Dome Patrol, one. Let these guys get it figured out and do something on the field for several games and then, then, we'll see what we got... Right now we have no DT, save Bunkley, that ...

Right now we have no DT, save Bunkley, that can protect those LB's play...

Another good move by the Saints!!!!!!!!

I like the way the defence is shaping up for next season. Hopefully they can all gel under the watchful eye of Spags and get the job done!

WHO DAT!!!!!!!!

Ellis does a good job with that, he just doesn't create a lot of passrush which a lot of people had expected from him.

Dont think Ellis does much of a job maybe he will get lit up this year but so far serviceable and thats all. Dont think we have a Dome patrol either but would't mind seeing the move to a 3/4 with a solid LB corp

I prefer a 4-3 base set over the 3-4, and I think that it better suites the division the Saints play in.

Ellis has done a decent job against the run, and that is in line with his rookie evaluations, but if he could create some pass rush he'd certainly be a lot more valuable since he isn't really earning his pay at the moment.

Great signing... we are addressing our weak spots... and what I like most is that we aren't filling in those holes with one-year stopgaps. This kicks ass.

if 3/4 is indeed the move then 1 starting DT is all that is needed. Ellis is a cap killer. Cut and sign depth for a 1/3 of his cap hit.

if and when these suspenions come about, can they be appealed and set up to be gone just 1 at a time rather all leaving the team.

Ellis was "supposed" to break out last year with Shaun rogers taking all the double teams away from him, that didn't pan out and I don't think he's living up to his high pick status, he hasnt been performing for years

Trade him for a pick or another player
