Which Saints players wont be back for the 2013 season?

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Ellis...gone Bushrod will probably want too much money...gone Smith and Vilma? If they don't take a pay cut or restructure, gone. I honestly want to see Vilma at least one more year, but I'm done with Will Smith. Henderson? Gone. ...

Ellis...gone
Bushrod will probably want too much money...gone
Smith and Vilma? If they don't take a pay cut or restructure, gone. I honestly want to see Vilma at least one more year, but I'm done with Will Smith.
Henderson? Gone. He may as well change his name to Claude Raines, because he became invisible after the first few weeks of the season, and Morgan has supplanted him as our deep threat.
Shanle? Should have already been gone.
Harper? Maybe a restructure? He may be iffy in coverage at times, but there is no denying he is one of the teams better tacklers. Plus, he could provide some leadership to a very young secondary. Especially if more DB's are added. Honestly, I was somewhat impressed by him this year under a new scheme. More than I thought I would be.

I think there will be a lot more turnover of personnel on this team than a lot of people are expecting, even with the salary cap situation, even if it is mostly draft picks, undrafted free agents, or minimum-salary type veterans.

People shouldn't be afraid of their government. Governments should be afraid of their people.

I could also see either Chris Ivory or Mark Ingram being traded.

I personally would rather keep Ivory over Ingram, but I wouldn't be disappointed if we kept all of the RBs; imagine what SP could do with that backfield.

I believe Vilma will be back... He played good and next year will be 100 percent I like Lofton Hawthorne Vilma as the linebackers... we just need that DT that can help fill some holes durin the run game so we can get our linebackers to make a play... Ellis def didn't do that Bunkley.. eghhh I like what I see from hicks another year under his belt he should be really good

Release - Ellis, Shanle, Herring, McBride.

Restructure - Bushrod, Smith, Vilma, Henderson

Draft - Spags' D requires pressure from the front four -

Rd 1 - Ezekiel Ansah

This! Ansah is a LB @ 6'6" 270... Spags could move him all over the place in different situations!

Great story, new to football, ability off the charts, only getting better.

However, still raw, undeveloped, unproven. Love to see him under Spags.

On IR the Saints have;

Toon - WR
Arrington - WR
Romeus - DE
Tanner -WR
M. Jones - OT
C. Brown - OT
Baynard - RB
Chamberlin - LB

Just to name a few.
Arrington was released and tanner on the PS. would like to see tanner given a chance, he catches everything thrown his way.

Don't know what happened to Greer this season.
Jenkins couldn't say let's tackle.
Ellis couln't even show up in this contract season.
Smith may have to play for free.
Defense may get totally revamped.
I wouldn't be mad at all.

I posted in the Big Board thread that Ansah intrigues me. I am leaning towards him as the guy I want the Saints to draft.
