Possible trade in the works?

Although, Harper and Ivory would combine for about $9M cap hit...

We can't do it. Well maybe we can but I think it handcuffs us too much and with him on a 1 year tender it is insane for us to take him without a longer term deal in place.

I think we don't move on the position of LT until we see how the draft plays out. If we lose out on Alberts before hand so be it. There are lots of plan B's available.

We don't have the cap or Picks to make this trade Highly unlikely

They released their starting LT, and tagged his back up. Even if they draft a LT, this guy is not going anywhere. They need insurance.

Re: Possible trade in the works?

LOL! Who doesn't like to share insight on their favorite football team!
Another thing to let you know why the Saints covet and show it through them replacing Nicks immediately with Grubbs and their willing to pay Evans and Grubbs top gaurd money! The reason is if you watch games Drew gets effected by inside pressure alot more consistently than outside pressure because of his nifty footwork and shoulder shruggs he also likes to step in and up into his throws when throwings deep which is often! Just a tidbit to mull iver it's obvious when you watch because when the center play wss in flux or when teams just blitzed up the middle and it wasn't picked up Drew was either sacked or hurried! Drew actually made Bushrod a star when really he is just solid at best, but don't get me wrong he did everything asked of him!

O YEA my point was the Saints covet inside protection over outside protection because of Drew's pocket presence! LoL
