Lorig is younger with more upside. I like the idea.

Jed dropped some easy catches in 2013. Sean loves that FB play on 3rd down. (not very successful in 2013)

Re: Saints hosted free agent FB Erik Lorig

tendering Collins would have been insane- he would have tripled his salary, and we can't pay $2 mill for a FB

He can play DL also, in a pinch.
