Why we gotta Sign Julio Jones

Look as much as we'd like , Sean Payton is NOT going to change for anyone. So if he refuses to run on 2nd and 3 and 3rd and 3 and is dead set on throwing the flipping ball , why not enhance Drews Options ?

Yes we have a Steve Smith reincarnation in Cooks

Yes we have a Henderson Clone in Stills

Yes we have the closest thing to Lebron James at Tight End

But we Do not have a true No.1 guy that demands an immense amount attention. We DO NOT have a guy that can hand Sherman his hind parts play in and out.

Colston has been Old reliable for us , but not so much as of late. If we are really trying to ease him out not a better guy can be his replacement. Same size but more speed power and catches everything.

Julio will be looking to leave Atlanta. No coach no system no organization and I'm sure he's thought about what he could accomplish looking up at us.

We will have to part ways with familiar faces to make room but that's on the agenda anyways , nothing is worth holding onto that much that Julio Jones won't be a saint.

Laugh all you want , but Julio Cooks and Graham trips right with stills Left and Ingram in the backfield would be no joke.

Re: Why we gotta Sign Julio Jones

Can't pretend it wouldn't be great but I don't think we'd have enough cap space to sign him

If we want to keep Ingram we need to be competitive with his contract
100 million dollar man in Brees
56 million dollar hospital bed in Jairus Byrd

Only way we afford to make a big signing would be multiple restructures or cutting quite a few players

The trouble with that is Loomis has backloaded so many contracts that were may be up **** street in 2015 and 2016 with brees, Byrd and Graham's contracts all back loaded.

Why? Those back-loaded contracts will be restructured when needed...

Re: Why we gotta Sign Julio Jones

I'm sold, but honestly we could probably sign two above average CBs or LBs for what he'll want

Re: Why we gotta Sign Julio Jones

Seriously??? With our secondary and O line issues? WR is the last thing we need. Give Brees the time he needs, and Stills, Graham, Cooks, Colston, Lorig/Johnson,PT, and now Ingram are plenty. Brees put up record breaking numbers without a true #1 receiver. We need a #2 corner bad....hell, even a #3 corner also. Our secondary sucks a$$.

Re: Why we gotta Sign Julio Jones

Would LOVE to have him. No question.

But we need LBs worse that WRs. I mean, it'd be nice to score 40 a game, but it'd also be really nice if we could stop the other team from scoring 30 a game.

No Psychotherapy could shock Julio back from the nightmares in Atlanta.
