This would be a very good move

The guy is a model of consistency no matter how old he is, a change of scenery would do some good and he could provide very good production for us

No way should they trade Smith and Wilson for him, and now that there's a chance of Smith getting his 4 game suspension overturned or suspended, the Saints might not need another DE.

Freeney has a massive cap hit and he'll be an UFA come next offseason, so without a new contract settlement to accompany the trade, it would be too expensive for a 1-year deal - $14M base salary and $19M cap hit.

Bull, Will Smith got to nothing last year and im usually a Will Smith supporter. Plus DE's are going to have to cover open area sometimes in Zone scheme and Freeney way faster than Smith. Fit him in.....

How are you going to fit a $19M salary cap hit under $8M cap they have, and do you honestly think Freeney is worth virtually more than Brees?
