Of the two Nose Tackles we could afford to move for, Hill is the more intriguing option...

We'd only sign Phillips to offset Harper, if cut; I'd consider Phillips is an upgrade if the health issues are behind him...

Matt Moore would be an excellent insurance policy; and he may take less to learn under Payton...

Myers and/or Alexander would be just more headaches for opposing defensive coordinators...

May not afford five probowl/high level offensive linemen, but like to keep from changing the chemistry too much in one season by keeping Brian De La Puente ...

Edelman would be an ace special teamer for the Saints...

Re: 2013 Saints - Free Agency Targets

wow bleacher report came up with two options.
first and for most CHEAP but the upside is there? i think so

Tyler Polumbus, ROT, 6-8 312 Washington Redskins
Likely Contract: Two years, $3.0 million ($1.5 million per year)

Mike Pollak, OG/C, 6-4 301 Carolina Panthers
Likely Contract: Two years, $1.2 million ($600,000 per year)

Almost forgot Stillman's Sammie Lee Hill.
NT Sammie Lee Hill. $1.26M tender in 2012
NT Terrance Knighton $1.47M in 2012

I would love to see the saints get both of them. even at 2 million a piece you would get players that have the project label lifted and they are due to break out or not. at least they are young and ready to go. Nice rotation

Re: 2013 Saints - Free Agency Targets

If we resign Bushrod, I would pay him good right tackle money and give him a little lagniappe on the signing bonus for his effort at left tackle...

Re: 2013 Saints - Free Agency Targets

Depth/Starter That might be very cap friendly backups that can step in play starter if needed. It will be fun to see what the market offers these guys. some will cash in i am sure

Offensive Tackles: Jermon Bushrod – NO

Tyler Polumbus, Redskins ROT, 6-8 312
Salary cap hit 2012 $540,000
2008 undrafted free agent
2012 full-time starter for the first time. great size and decent mobility, struggled at times with leverage on some blocks. He has now played in this zone-blocking scheme in Denver, Seattle and Washington.

Centers/Guards:

Mike Pollak, Panthers OG/C, 6-4 301
Salary cap hit 2012 $765,000
2008 2nd Round
Started 41 of 58 games for the Colts from 2008-11. More successful as a pass blocker than a run blocker.
Pollak had season-ending injured in Week 1 - shoulder

WR

David Nelson Bills 6-5 217 26
Salary cap hit 2012 $494,000
2010 NFL Draft undrafted free agent
coming off ACL and ready to roll? 6-5 slot wr to go with graham ans Colston? definitely worth a look. A very good No. 3 receiver or more production in the slot should go after the 6’5″, 26-year-old. Nelson has been recovering quickly from the injury, and he is expected to make OTAs.

Danarrio Alexander restricted free agent

Tight Ends:

Brandon Myers Oak 6 3 256 28
Salary cap hit 2012 $587,750
2009 6th Round
Athlete to play H-back and is a very good blocker. He has been a back up to Miller and Boss since being drafted by Oakland in the sixth round in 2009 finally getting his chance he had career highs in catches (79), yards (806), and touchdowns (4) 4.78 draft forty

DE

Matt Shaughnessy OAK 6-5 285 27
Salary cap hit 2012 $565k
2009 3rd Round
One of the best run-stopping defensive ends and will never be a speed rusher, but he can push the pocket and help a speed rusher on the other side gain sacks. third-round pick in 2009.
(shoulder surgery - 2011)

DE/DT

Desmond Bryant Oak 6-6 300 27
Salary cap hit 2012 $1,927,000
2009 undrafted free agent
He had five sacks and 35 tackles last season, both career highs.
Maybe one of the best interior rushers in the NFL, showed an ability to be an interior pass rusher. Now he might be an intriguing fit for the saints aggressive 3-4 defense. under-the-radar force or a one year wonder in Oakland last season? Worth the risk?

arrested in Miami on Sunday morning on the charge of criminal mischief.


DT/NT

Sammie Lee Hill Lions 6-4 329 26
Salary cap hit 2012 $1.26M tender in 2012
2009 4th Rounder
Hill could be a cheap sleeper. Hard to know what you get here because he only really started as a Rookie then the Lions drafted two DT with #1 picks. The times in the field he has shown flashes of promise. Enough to get tendered in 2012.

Terrance Knighton Jags 6-3 336 26
Salary cap hit 2012 $1,470,964
2009 3rd Round
He was one of the best young run-stoppers in the league till last year. Getting replaced as a starter only helps save money. He should be available at a cap friendly price. At 336 lbs. weight has been an on going issue. Perfect candidate for a one year deal to prove himself.

Richard Seymour 6-6 317 $13,714,000
Even at age 33, Seymour still can help out in 2013.


ILB

Brad Jones Packers 6-3 242 26
Salary cap hit 2012 $630,063
2009 7th round
Packers would like to re-sign ILB Jones - very solid pass defender and good against the run. Young and upcoming ILB?
A.J. Hawk contract will determine what happens here imo cut A.J. Hawk?


OLB

Victor Butler Cowboys 6-2 248 26
Salary cap hit 2012 $739,635
2009 - Fourth round
11 regular season sacks, say what?, with limited snaps behind DeMarcus Ware and Anthony Spencer. Not too too bad. He can be effective coming off the bench and being part of a rotation.

CB - ok a budget cb? lol

Leodis McKelvin 5'10' / 186 /27 - CB Bills
Salary cap hit 2012 $2,684,584
2008 First round
4 draft picks on cornerbacks in the last two drafts? McKelvin to special teams duty. McKelvin was among the league's best return men this season. He averaged a league-leading 18.7 yards per punt return and brought two punts to the house. He also ranks fourth in kick-return average at 28.3 yards. McKelvin as a CB seems to be a slot corner.Dime guy maybe nickle. So might be reasonably priced.

(groin) on injured reserve, ending his season
