Agreed. He's gotta prove he's still got it.

It's been almost two weeks since Free agency opened up, if his own team hasn't brought him back in then why would he command a significant amount of change. He would be lucky to get a prove it contract in this day and age of the NFL investing so heavily in rookies.... I think it would benefit him and NO if he gave it a shot. Besides he knows Robs defense like the back of his hand. I mean why not bring him in?

He could be a good player here. He would be great at shoring up a good looking secondary. I am wondering why he is still available? We do wonders here with retreads.

I have stated I want to sign Anthony Spencer multiple times on this site, I'm not against bringing him in, I just don't think anybody will be able to at vet minimum. And just because he is still on the market means teams are blowing him off? Well does that mean Jared Allen isn't a good pass rusher?

I don't think CB is as important as it was now that we have Byrd. Byrd and Vaccaro together will help our CBs a lot. I also think White will be a little better this year. I think WR should be first priority and CB next.

I would definitely add a center to that wish-list.

I really have a feeling that if there is a player available that is dropping who the Saints like they will trade up for him because of the extra draft pick as compensation. .. I like Kyle Fuller personally... Best CB in the draft

He will get above league minimum even if he has to wait till after the draft. Somebody will miss the draft pick they wanted or will loose a pass rusher to the inevitable ACL tear in mini camp and give him a couple of million.
