Brad Jones signed a 1-yr contract with the Packers for undisclosed compensation, so unfortunately he's off the market as well and it's a shame because he would've been another great (cheap) addition to the LB corps.

Re: 2013 Saints - Free Agency Targets

The Saints Linebackers story looks to be a good one this year...

Should Victor Butler be signed and we draft a linebacker in either the first or third round, we will have an amazing competition at all the LB spots...

The safe move is to sign New England Offensive Tackle Sebastian Vollmer...

Saints FO is crushing on Nnamdi...

I would sign Huff as an upgrade and for versatility...

Butler has yet to show he can bring it for sixteen games in a season...

I think we're down to our last two signings; it's like being a kid again and waiting for a baby tooth to finally come out...

Re: 2013 Saints - Free Agency Targets

Asomugha is certainly taking his time with the decision, if in fact he already has offers tabled from both the 49ers and the Saints and he isn't pursuing any other offers on the market.

we need a dislike button grrr oh well

Chicago Sun-Times is reporting that Jones signed a three-year contract worth $11.75 million that includes a $3 million signing bonus.

He was cheaper than Jr. to sign grrrr

I do not see any other ILB in FA worth chasing so draft it is

While I'm convinced Safety is the least of our concerns on defense, I've always liked Huff. Huff and Harper at FS/SS and Malcom back to NB/DB works for me.

I also think Ryan is crushing on any player that happens to know his system and can still contribute.
