Jake Long used to be an elite LT but injuries has reduced him a whole lot as a player.

I think it would be a mistake to let Bushrod go.

Id keep bushrod and get an OT after weve drafted our defensive players, let them battle for the starting spot

in a related story, Drew Brees expresses willingness to renegotiate that 100M
contract.

(not really.... just rhetoric.)

Who's this guy kidding? Saints don't pay interior linemen market contracts either!

Faine, Goodwin, Nicks.... C'mon man!

The Saints can't pay everybody. It's kinda ironic Drew's salary might lead to him getting crushed from his blindside.

Trading down a few spots and drafting an OT that we could have for years seems like an option + we get another pick seems like a win win to me.

Re: Saints Willing To Part Ways With OTJermon Bushrod?

As bushrod goes so does the draft and to a lesser extent FA.

If Bushrod walk and the saints gut the defense deeply then FA is an option but that would be too much to expect, or is it

Draft round 1 OT if not

how much is the tag for an OT this year?

Draft and let that player go to RT to get their feet wet as a starter in the NFL. Then deal with move next year.

Drew must stay upright

It'll be about $11M, so there's no way they'll be putting the tag on Bushrod.
