Big time names in 2015 Free Agency

I believe the Saints will restructure and free up enough money to make a splash in free agency. With the new salary cap, I truly believe we can land 2 or 3 veteran's to help this team with leadership.

Here are a few links that are worth checking out. Share your thoughts.

Re: Big time names in 2015 Free Agency

I think Ike Taylor would be a good vet for us to get. Would be a low cap hit and possibly a 1 or 2 year contract. Would provide great leadership (which is what we are missing). He may only play 8-10 games healthy but he should provide a boost and mentoring ability to guys like SJB and Frederick.

I don't really like anyone on that list for a long term solution, what we need most is a #2 CB with vet experience and leadership.

I'd rather have Chris Harris.

Re: Big time names in 2015 Free Agency

There are some very good receivers on that list, which might mean some guys drop in the draft. There are a few aging RB's that might be serviceable if we do lose Ingram.

Until we see what happens with big name restructuring: Brees, Evans, Colston, no one knows.

It looks like Dallas has both Murray and Bryant to deal with...good luck

Brian Leonard, Collins, Charles Brown and Morgan are all still listed as Saints

My top pick off that list would be Worilds from Pitt

He signed new contract with Broncos.

Frankly, I don't think the Saints will be big shoppers in free agency. They will have to shed 20+ million just to get under the cap. They will add some players, but they will be low cap hit guys, and not splash signings.

There will be some really good affordable players. I rather sign 2-3 starters with high upside than 1 superstar.

Shane Vereen would be a great addition for us. Might be the best 3rd down back in the league but he can do it all. Very similar to PT but much faster and a lot younger.

The splash signings aren't what is needed right now. We need the low cap hit vets that can bring the intangibles to the team. If we sign 3 vet FAs in areas of need it would help our defense tremendously.

We said that last year and then boom, we signed Byrd. Loomis magic.
