If we can't get Johnson in the draft what do people think of trading back and picking up Barrett Jones.
He can play right across the line and going all out and trading up for Mathews when he comes out next year.

Saw him his whole career. I view him as a jack of all linemen. He's probably not NFL OT material, but will probably play 10-12 years in this league as an above average interior lineman.

If we needed an OG or OC I'd be screaming for this guy.

Faine, Goodwin, Nicks.... C'mon man!
They offered Nicks. He was bent on leaving. And as far as the center position goes, our current starter was a journeyman who never saw the field for another team, and now is starting and playing well for the Saints.

The Saints have always done well plugging holes in the line. I'm not overly concerned about it. I'd like to see Bushrod back, but, not at an outrageous price.

Think He will be gone do some magic in the draft and let him go all these players are overpaid Drew also but if you want to keep your top quarterback it is what it is. I think there has to be some sanity also and when these guys get some leverage they sure go for it. Can't say i blame them but I would look at other options if they wont deal.

Bushrod is at the point in his career (29 y/o when the season starts) that he will undoubtedly be looking for a pay-day, because this will probably be his last big contract, so I consider him gone already.

Maybe I'll be pleasantly surprised when he re-signs with the Saints with a home town discount, but I doubt it.

That's my point. Tackles aren't the only lineman the Saints aren't committed to over-paying. They've let all of their top FA interior guys walk. And filled the void fairly well.

That being said, it's time to upgrade RT and get some depth at line.

Agreed. Apparently Charles Brown hasn't panned out. Not sure if that's due to injury or not. They actually seem to do better with the draft picks they take in the later rounds.

Next man up. I won't miss his two second protection, but I will miss his down field blocking. That's where he is best.
