Cornerbacks are a premium that no team wants to part and we've certainly never been able to draft a shut-down cornerback...

Too much dead money at inside linebacker which is on Loomis and begs the question, why would they be motivated (Lofton, Hawthorne) to play, practice hard if they no their position is salary cap guaranteed...

That's why I don't drink the coolaid and pat Loomis on the back for putting on a quick fix for bad signings, moves (i.e. Lofton, Hawthorne, Grubbs et al)...

CB is the first place coach Payton started with when he came to New Orleans.

I still say the Carolina pantsees stole our pick kluchlee when they picked ahead of us after they beat us twice the prior year. we had the same record but they picked ahead of us. I believe he was the backer we 've been missing since ricky Jackson.

The Colts made a nice move for Vontae Davis. And if we really want to be a 3-4 team we've got to get better, faster, and deeper at linebacker. Our d line is deeper then our lb core.

As far as CB, I'd try and make a trade for Cary Williams of the Eagles, or even Boykins who is sitting behind them. We could probably get one of them for no more then a 4th. Hell, Sproles went for a 4th.

From what I have been reading lately, Cary is a locker room cancer and a "me" guy. I love the dog in him but pass.

I'm a me guy. I like me guys. But nah, I heard his teammates love him and he's a leader. The coaching staff is a different story.

I know he complained about being over worked at practice, but I haven't heard much else.

Apparently some of his teammates agreed with him too.
