He's a top 10 FS when healthy. We do need that in a DB! We're not trying to get rid of Colston with his injury problems. Anything is better then what we have. Jairus Byrd is a playmaker. I've been following him since he came into the league. He's Sharper-esque.

There is that T word. Flip the script, your Buffalo, what do you "want" in trade?

I don't think straight up trade will float.

Id love him but I dont think the csp space could even be made when he is a FA next year unlesd a big earner could be traded.
I dont see Drews contract being renegotiated till the season after and a few players contracts are up and Jimmy needs a new deal.Id rather pick up some younger cheaper talent in the draft like Ladler, Clinton-Dix and Reynolds.

Re: Could Ryan Griffin be the future for the Saints?

I actually like him better than I liked Chase. Chase sometimes looked a little too "Alex Smithy" back there for my tastes, throwing wobblers or taking off running like a deer in the headlights when he got panicked. This kid, when he's in there it looks like a Brees/Payton offense, the plays look the same, the players and formations look the same, the motions look the same...still like McCown better right now but no question Griffin has upside and a bit of the intangible "it" for the future.

Griffin will be fun to watch grow. Although with Drews attitude about never letting your back up see the field we may have to wait until next years pre season games.
Edit: if he were our back up.

RG won't be a Saint for the next 5 years waiting for Drew to retire.

Drew's successor is probably still in High School.

I agree with Oak. No way this kid is around when Drew is ready to retire.

I feel the only reason we really think about the future QB is because of Atlanta fans' fear tactics. We still have three-four years left of Brees, and how do we even know Ryan will still be good in his 30s?
