Saints Free Agents you'll likely not see in a Saints Uniform Sgain

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I think we will definitely see some shifting done to accommodate Robinson. Even though Mack did well when healthy, that was in a different system, and Coach Ryan will have to decide if he still fits....

I would be sad to not see Devery in the B&G. I know a lot of people on here and off here; don't like him. However, I would like to see him retire with us.

Personally, it's not that I don't like Devery, but I just think that roster spot can be given to a younger player with more to give to the team going forward.

Nothing against Devery, but his skill set - which was limited to begin with - has diminished in recent years, and what was really concerning last season was that he was dropping passes that were hitting him right on the hands.

The Bucs got a LB we'll regret letting go, if history is a barometer.

O.E. 800? Dang! Bringing back memories of my Cali days. I'll crack one also, just for the heck of it.

You may be right about that, but Casillas never really lived up to his scouted potential which might have been because his development was hindered by the ill-timed injuries he picked up during his initial years in the league.

He had good speed, but he was lacking in so many other areas that it probably was better to let him go when he found another suitor - low-balling was probably the only way he would've stayed with the Saints.

It certainly won't be nice to see him with the Bucs this coming season.

If its after week 6, we probably won't see him.

Sedrick Ellis

Devery Henderson

Elbert Mack

Dave Thomas

Scott Shanle

Nick Hixon

William Robinson


These FAs were picked up by other teams this season

Turk Mcbride - Bears
Jermon Bushrod - Bears
Chase Daniel - Chiefs
Johnathan Casillas - Bucs

it wouldn't hurt my feelings if Mack stayed. I wouldn't write Shanle off either. Unfortunately.

You mean his wrists, forearms and elbows...
He never used his hands. That was his (and our) biggest problem.
