Free Agency

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; We can not afford 3/4 of the people names in this thread. Lots of high dollar players. Nothing Free about Free Agency...

Re: Free Agency

I would like to see Michael Ohr or however you spell it. He could start on either side of the line and while I think Armstead is a servicable backup I dont know if I want him protecting Drew on a regular basis. He may come a little cheaper than people think.
I would also like to see a Lb and Corner, either or.
We can address OL, CB, and maybe get a WR in the later rounds. I think we are in a little bit better shape at receiver than a lot of people think with Stills and Morgan in the mix.

Im curious when we will draft an earlier round QB. It is going to have to happen eventually. If its not this draft it will be next. The Patriots already got their man from Arkansas being groomed like Rodgers was. I would like for Brees legitimate successor to learn from him for 3-4 years befor he takes over.

I don't see us drafting a replacement for Drew, we will get our next starting QB the way we got this one. Free Agency.

Re: Free Agency

Probably a handful of people we've never heard of and possibly 1 or 2 starters.

Re: Free Agency

Ben Tate would be awesome too, but I doubt that will happen. He will get paid big bucks. I like the Walter Thurmond idea.

Re: Free Agency

Centers
Alex Mack Browns
Evan*Dietrich-Smith Packers


Safties
TJ Ward Browns
Chris Clemon Dolphins

ILB
Vinny Rey Bengals
Donald Butler Chargers

CB
*Allterraun Verner Titans
Tarel Brown 49ers
Walter Thurmond



Id like to see Haralson re-signed or Jo-Lonn Dunbar brought back to offer depth behind Junior and Butler

Alex Mack and Alterraun Verner will be too much money.

- Mack is arguably the best center in the league, and we can't afford to pay top money for anybody.

- VERY much like Keenan Lewis this season, Verner is also an unbelievably underrated cornerback. I think he'll get a nice contract as well.

I would absolutely love to see Dietrich-Smith or Walter Thurmond in a Saints jersey though.

Jared Allen DE MIN:

Walter Thurmond CB SEA:
Pair him up with Keenan Lewis and you have a fantastic young, physical CB duo.

Kenny Britt WR TEN:
Has all the talent in the world but motivation is key. Who are better motivators than Payton/Brees? Could be a steal because I could see many young teams not willing to risk the headache.

Anthony Spencer OLB DAL:
Had a down year but did well with Rob Ryan. Could come with discount after ending season on IR. Could also see him taking a pay cut to play for contender.

James Ihedigbo S BAL:
Would like him in the Black and Gold if we choose not to reup Jenkins.
Good list. I was just talking about Thurmond. Spencer would be a good move too. Britt? **** yeah. I like everyone on the list.
