Yes without a doubt. Hard to find backups as good as he is. He is not a starter but he can get you trough half a game if needed.

I'd prefer some paragraphs, punctuation, and spacing.

Re: Free agents 2014

You are spending plenty of cap to sign them, im wondering were its coming from.
Its easy to say restructure Brees but he isnt going to loose the money and all we will do is push cap issues further down the line.At some point you need to take the hit.

The figure after each guy is the 2013 cap hit for them.
I put the guys in Italics that I really hope we resign.
Jenkins - though I disliked Harper's game less, the mistackles, bad hips, poor angles, lack of forced turnovers, non-threat as an impact hitter; say goodbye to the bowtie, glasses, the osu joke...

Strief - May have been rated high, but his awful movement, feet limits what we can do on that side and makes the offense predictable; way too slow to run screens on the right side...

De La Puente - there aren't alot of Centers laying around and reworking something as "chemistry sensitive" as the offensive line can be tricky, but status quo is unacceptable and for the money spent on the offensive line, changes are 'a comin'...

Graham - Franchise Tag, Non-Exclusive; has been my favorite Saint, but became disappointed with his inability to adjust his game to physical corners getting non-calls vs him; not obsessed with the poor blocking with a guy with his numbers, but he's pretty pathetic in that department; Colston actually blocks better; two number ones are intriguing, but have we got past our problems with first round picks?!?

Meachem - Even though as a first rounder he's a bust, to get him for that money as a No. 4 WR - that's a no brainer and makes the WR corps that the more effective...

Haralson - I liked the addition, but as a +30yr old with a possible torn pec injury, just don't like that, stay with the youth movement...

Herring - really liked his vet presence and contribution to the team; again, an aged player that we may need to get younger, faster players an opportunity...

Humber - at one point, I thought he could supplant Lofton (who should some chops in the Saints last three games); asking price will be key to his staying/returning to the Saints...

Bush - good thing for those that hung on their Bush jerseys when the other kid left town; this is your staring free safety in my book and I loved his bring the wood mentality in the playoff game; he's got some holes to his game, but MORE playing time will remedy that and he looked way better than the other two kids who've overstayed; must re-sign till we find the ball-hawk to complement Vaccaro...

Collins - mixed bag; missed some key blocks down the stretch and dropped some key passes; sign the other FB on the practice squad if he gets signed for more than he is making now and take the compensatory pick, move on...

Harris - intrigues me; sign him to a two year extension and see what develops...

Knox - really liked this late edition; gotta bring him back and give him an opportunity to compete...

Morgan - can he return to prior form AND improve, smh; Toon will make him expendable if he shows up to camp...

Dawson - didn't like the signing, could have used the resources better; Ryan was blessed to not have his way with these "trusted" slow, aged veterans that needed to be left in Dallas...

Graham - send him an invite; has kicked in cold weather; blame, cut McCown for his laces in hold; clutch kick in Philly was nice...

Re: Free agents 2014

Can somebody explain how the compensatory picks are decided how what round they are in?.
I get its to do with number of FA lost compared to how many you sign snd we look like we will loose a fair few some fairly highly rated like Bushrod last year possibly two starting O linemen this year.

Simply, it's based on the FA Lost and the contract amount the FA signed; the League office sits in committee, looks at the market, what the FAs signed for and then they assign the compensatory pick...
