Like it was suspected, the Bills tagged Byrd, so he won't be available on the market.

And just about every other highly desired free agent will either re-sign or be tagged.

The few who do make it to market will likely be way over-paid. I'm growing tired of that scenario.

IDK, I have a feeling that someone like Connor Barwin could be had for very acceptable money, especially with this year's draft being so heavy on defensive talent.

Thats a great point. But you'd think that would adjust/set their fair market value before they decided to leave or stay.

True, I think Barwin was offered a multi-year contract prior to last season, which he turned down, and now after a disappointing season he hasn't been offered the same type of a contract by the Texans.

What about bringing one of the Breadline Three just released from the Clowns just for fun? Think there'd be a place for Abraham or Robinson?

Abraham has been their Will Smith for the past couple of seasons - being overpaid for the production they've been getting out of him - and there was a lot of speculation even last offseason that the Failclowns would cut him.

He has lost a step during the past couple of years, and he lost a handful of games last season with an injury, which also made him a non-factor in the playoffs. Honestly, at this point in his career I would stay away from him, but who knows? He might be a fit for a 3-4 DE since he wouldn't need that explosiveness of the LOS in that position in comparison with a 4-3 DE, although I'd like to see him put on some weight if that were the case (6-4, 263). But I don't think he'd be a good pick up for the Saints.

Robinson or Grimes on the other hand could provide some nice talent injection on the Saints' backfield, but there might be better fits out there than these two.

Robinson never did live up to expectations in atlanta. maybe a change in defense would work for him
