Re: Saints Sign Ben Watson, Re sign Humber

nice move
Thomas was $1.7 against the cap. Watson must be less, or why bother? BW is two years older and very similar

Rumor on another board is we just signed Nmandi Asomugha.

Unconfirmed obviously, and a hit & miss source, mostly miss.

Yeah guy who tweeted that isn't reliable....some dude in france or something....he's already deleted the tweet. Below is a better guage of where we are with Nnamdi...from an actual source....

Jeff Darlington‏ @JeffDarlington
Things are going well between him and the Saints. If price is right, I think it'll happen. RT @WHODATDuggDat: Any news on Asomugha?

Re: Saints Sign Ben Watson, Re sign Humber

I am not jumping up an down over it. Freaking insane move
the only good thing i see in the Watson signing is the contract amount.
three-year deal is insane
there was a reason the pats let him go and it was not money.
One play your going to be amazed and the your going to throwing things at your TV.
oh well there is still the draft. Oh thats right we signed watson to a three year deal.

One special teams, Humber ! no upgrading in that move. i like the guy but ...

I guess the well is drying up

Micky has me shaking my head yet again. he is batting about .300 in my book so far. thats good in baseball but it not good enough in football

Re: Saints Sign Ben Watson, Re sign Humber

I'm sure Humber is a special teams signing at vet min.

Nothing to dislike about that at all.

Re: Saints Sign Ben Watson, Re sign Humber

3 year deal could just as easily become a 2yr deal...

I like the Watson signing personally. He's everything that members have said he is here AND he comes from Payton's favorite program - The Patriots

Yep, and my guess is that he was signed merely as a back-up, not a starter.

Should be probably double vet minimum. I can live with that.

Re: Saints Sign Ben Watson, Re sign Humber

I hope this is a huge signing.
While he is long in the tooth, this gives us a "real" TE for the first time in a long time. I love Graham, but I love two TE looks more.
Now we have a guy that can block, catch and run IN ADDITION to Jimmy Graham.
He is capable of scoring 6-8 TD's next year.
