1. Brian Orakpo- Butler comes back next year from his injury, but I would love to have a 3rd and long DL of Junior, Jordan, Orakpo, and Butler

2. Eric Winston/Roger Saffold- Whichever is cheaper, because I believe both will be cheaper than Strief

3. Hakeem Nicks- Injury slowed him down, but he would look good in our offense.

4. Alex Mack- Would be number 1 on my list, loved him coming out of college. But I think he will sign one of the richest center contracts, and we cant put all our money in the interior OL.

5. Walter Thurmond- Basically everyone but Greer has an issue for our CBs.
Orakpo has two subsequent tears in his chest muscle - pass

Eric Winston starting to look like he was overpaid all along - pass

Roger Saffold could play both Tackles, but can we afford him?!? - bump

Hakeem Nicks would not be affordable with what we're paying Colston; he's got a little Italian in him (Fragile); but a definite talent - pass

Alex Mack would be an A+ addition to this team; question is could we afford him?!? After signing Jimmy Graham, tendering Rafael Bush, he would be the guy I'd love to sign; a center named Mack - make it happen Saints!!!

Walter Thurmond's next suspension will be for a year - pass...

Should never assume, but I figured that's what you meant...

Herring may be gone because of cap numbers or age, but he's been no liability, he's just not starting for the defense and has been solid since taken leadership on the kicking teams...

Re: Free agents 2014

2014 Roster

QB - Brees, Griffin
RB - Ingram, Robinson, Cadet
FB - Johnson
WR - Colston, Stills, Meachem, Toon
TE - Graham, Hill
OT - Armstead, Strief, Harris
OG - Evans, Grubbs, Lelito
C - DLP

Griffin will win the #2 in camp. Thomas and Sproles are aging and expensive. With a true balanced attack, the need doesn't fit the cost. I expect the Saints to draft a WR early. Graham will most likely be franchised. Strief is very valuable because he can play either tackle and will be re-signed to a fair deal. DLP will re-sign a fair deal unless someone gets stupid and overpays for him. The Saints will draft an o-lineman or two late.

DE - Jordan, Hicks, Foster, Galette
NT - Jenkins, Bunkley
LB - Lofton, Hawthorne, Butler, Reddick, Johnson
CB - Lewis, White, Sweeting
S - Vaccaro, Bush

LS - Drescher
P - Morstead
K -

The Saints first pick will come on the defensive side of the ball unless a top WR or T falls. The Saints need a playmaker at OLB, CB and S from the draft or free agency. They usually go cheap in free agency, so hopefully they'll get lucky in the draft. Due to the numbers, I can see Jenkins or Harper coming back for another year as a Saint. I lean towards Harper because I think Jenkins will get more money elsewhere. Overall, I've left 15 spots completely open for competition. Hopefully, Loomis and Co. will work some more magic and find some real talent on the cheap as they've done in the past.

Re: Free agents 2014

I think Cadet is gone, Sproles retires, Thomas stays, and Andy Tanner gets moved up.
