Are we shallow at DB?

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Sure seems this way to me. We're crazy deep on the front 7 and analysts are saying we don't have "starters" on the DL. But CB seems to be a problem....

yes, Short term or long term answer: Drayton Florence current salary right at 4 million. I think it is necessary to get Drew done after that though!

Maybe were going to put pressure on the QB for the first time in a while that we don't need that may DB. It sounds good don't it.

well it is definitely a youth movement going on in the secondary. this should be painfully fun to watch.

Depth, not so much...

La Canfora seems to think that Florence might be headed to the Chargers, at least they've shown interest in signing him, so I don't know if the Saints are willing pay the kind of money he'd probably be asking with another suitor in the wings.

And yes, they are definitely shallow at DB when it comes to proven players, but there are some promising/interesting young players in the depth chart at the moment, so at least there'll be some competition in the coming weeks.

I am sure that if Sean Payton was here he would be working double time on bringing in corners. It has always been his top priority on defense.
