Re: 2013 Saints - Free Agency Targets

Guys, I understand the concern over the LT position, Charles Brown will be given the opportunity to see if can handle the job. IMO the Ben Watson signing is bigger than what every one thinks. IMO Watson was signed not only to help block if necessary but adds an additional threat on offense. With a little over 2 Million of cap room left and the draft right around the corner I don't except them to sign anyone. After the draft is over they may kick the tires on Gaither, McKinnie, and Cabo as long as it doesnt cost a lot of money, like league minimum.
IMO free agency is over until after the draft unless Mickey Lookis can work a miracle, which is possible but not likely.

That's reportedly exactly the reason why the Steelers wanted to move forward without Starks - I mean the fact that the Steelers are moving towards an offensive plan with more screen plays and Starks not being a fit to that.

Starks isn't in his prime, but economics played as much of a part in his release than anything...

Now, WTF are we signing a 5-8 safety?!?

Michael Huff was available and affordable (yeah, we would have had to let Harper geaux, oh boy!?!) and we sign a nice guy on the back end of his career?!?

Are we the Black and Gold or are we the Black and Silver?!?

Re: 2013 Saints - Free Agency Targets

Leonhard is only 4 months older than Huff, so if one is "silver" the other one would've been "silver" as well.

Granted I would've taken Huff miles before Leonhard, but this was a depth move and signing Huff would've been to replace one of the starting safeties.

Exactly, our safeties need an upgrade...

There are very few positions on either side of the ball where the Saints could use an upgrade, "need" on the other hand is always relative.

Fin, we were last in defense, last in YAC, last in Big Plays...

If the Saints FO wanted Nnamdi so bad, how much lower were we than the 49ers?

Nnamdi was not looking for money.
