Re: Free Agency

I think Hakeem Nicks would be a great pickup. He would serve as another strong receiver to complement Marques and Jimmy. He has had a down year, so hopefully we could get him on the cheap.

Re: Free Agency

Far too expensive and far too injury prone.

Re: Free Agency

Evan Dietrich-Smith, the center from Green Bay. I also wouldn't mind to see Johnathan Goodwin back in a Saints jersey.

Both are upcoming FAs.

Re: Free Agency

While also trying to be realistic with my wishes, I would say that this team would be greatly set up going into the draft if we managed to grab 2 FAs out of the following guys (In descending order):

Jared Allen DE MIN:
I could see him taking less $ to get one last SB chance. Can you imagine the pass rush with him and Cam Jo?

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.

Re: Free Agency

The FS from Buffalo, Byrd, he will more than likely want big money.

Realistically?

No clue. It all starts with re-signing Graham and it trickles down from there. Who knows how much money we're going to have to work with. I'm just glad we finally have all our draft picks back and we don't seem to have any big gaping holes at the moment that will require big patching up to do.
