Read on NOLA.com (citing ProFootball Focus) (New Orleans Saints Will Smith, Jonathan Vilma's days could be numbered with cap cuts looming | NOLA.com S2, P4) that Will Smith was ranked 62 out of 64 defensive ends...

The most amazing statement in that article was that he didn't always have the green light to rush the passer - I mean, WTF? Who's rushing the passer in a 4-3 if not the defensive end?!?

Neaux I don't see us getting a trade partner for Smith unless the Raiders have someone they want to get rid of and the Dodgers are an MLB team...

agreed but he is a better blocker than most of TE listed. he is more of a complete TE and better at receiving than Graham and Daniels. a blocking TE is what the saints need in the running game

Getting Bullish on Glover Quin and Ricky Jean Francois...

Still want to see Byrd and Edelman in the Black & Gold...

Getting the feeling the Bushrod is NOT coming back and our first round pick may be Lane Johnson OU...

Would Franklin want to come back to New Orleans?

Question of the day!

I'm sure money talks but I also wonder if there are any hard feelings about releasing him last year.

He'd be perfect for our new 3-4, whether we go 1-gap or 2-gap.

Hey Abreayo, you can have your old number back?

I will personally cook you gumbeaux each week Abrayo if you play in 70% of the snaps leading a top 15 unit...

Ditto, and I'd settle for a 50/50 ratio with Bunkley.

I think Brodrick Bunkley is going to play strong side defensive end...

Why do you think that? Jordan and Hicks are much better fits there.

Bunkley has NT written all over him. He was the #1 rated 3-4 NT when he was at Denver.
