Re: Saints 2015 Free Agents

Keepers:

Ingram - Should be relatively easy to keep if the Saints truly want to. 3 year deal worth about 12 million seems reasonable. He's the only player here who will demand a significant contract.

Haralson - No brainer, he is solid and makes peanuts. I'd rather him be more of a backup/rotational player but you need guys like this.

Humber - I like him to take on a bigger role, perhaps even starting next to Lofton. At the very least he's our best special teamer.

Deaderick - Solid backup, again will cost next to nothing.

Graham - Maybe some will disagree but he had a really good season. I see no reason not to retain him. We should still be grooming a young guy with a big leg to replace him in the near future.

Walker - Needs more playing time. Keep him and play him more often.

Cadet - I like what he did this year. He's good in the pass catching role. If PT gets cut you have to keep him. If we keep PT it's a much tougher call.

Re: Saints 2015 Free Agents

There are a few I would like the Saints to work out a deal with. The main 2 are Haralson and Ingram. Robinson I would like to keep but I would love to get a CB in FA also. I would like to see Griffin take the #2 qb. spot and let McCown go. Cadet can go, he is easily replaced. Fokou I don't know anything about but I do like the name(say it slow) Hate to see Goodwin on his last leg but we need help in the middle of the O and he's done. Deaderick possibly see what he could bring in at training camp, if he gets beat out well he gets beat out, our D-line a NT that dominates. Meachum same as Deaderick. The others can go.

Re: Saints 2015 Free Agents

wouldnt mind keeping Humber and Harolson. Other than that I dont see anyone on that list who isnt worth upgrading. Maybe Ingram but that depends on what kind of money he wants. One decent season out of 4 doesn't make me all that certain he is worth a big contract.

I forgot about Cadet. Would keep him too.

New Orleans Saints contract, roster notes: Kicker Dustin Hopkins gets longest future deal | NOLA.com

Just signed Dustin Hopkins to a futures contract. This kid has a big leg. Was drafted by the Bills in 2013 and beat out Rian Lindell until he was hurt and put on IR....

So I think that we may just have our future kicker already on the team

Good article on him from last year;

Re: Saints 2015 Free Agents

We lost games this year partly because the coaches don't trust him in a dome outside of 40. Add a Matt Bryant to the roster and we make the playoffs IMO. Team have to defend different when you can make 50 yarders

Shayne Graham, K

Restricted:
Tyrunn Walker, DL
Travaris Cadet, RB
Bryce Harris, OT

List from ESPN
Tyrunn Walker is a must keep.
Bryce Harris is a must go.

Haralson and Humber had better be 2nd string if they're kept. We need all new starting LBs who can stop the run better than they (and Hawthorne and Lofton) have been.

The inexpensive ones to keep unless they're beat in camp:
Robert Meachem, WR
Luke McCown, QB
Patrick Robinson, CB
Parys Haralson, LB
Ramon Humber, LB
Brandon Deaderick, DL
Jamarca Sanford, S
Moise Fokou, LB

Agree in principle, that's why I think we need to be grooming a young kicker. But young kickers are also unpredictable. Remember we had Carney and Hartley both on the roster in 09. Carney wasn't reliable past 40 yards or so either, but it was damn lucky we had him around that year when Hartley was shaky. With Graham, at least you know he won't miss the short ones.

Humber and Deaderick as camp competition. Wish everyone else well. The Saints need all the new blood and attitude they can find.
