Damon Harrison is a restricted free agent...

Per his tender, it would cost the Saints a second round pick if he signed with the Saints and the Jets didn't match...
Solid run stopper. Do the Saints make an offer?

Not for a second round pick and not with both Bunkley (recently restructured) and John Jenkins under contract...

Re: PFF 2015 free agents

Remember when we got our collective arse just whooped on the line at home vs the Bengals...

Guess who was sealing off the gaps for Jeremy Hill?!?

Hint: His jersey No. is 65

The Case for Replacing Boling for Grubbs...

Boling is only 25, he will be 26 enterning into this season, he will likely command about 8 mil/season...

For those that are fans of PFF, he's been rated a top 10 guard in the league the past two seasons, that's 64 starting guards barring no injuries nor replacements; he will be entering the prime of his career...

The Saints emphasis in protecting Brees lies in the interior line where the pass protection is designed to set up a virtual bastion (just like a castle)...

Whereby the passer, Brees, can step into the pocket knowing if he moves/passes the ball in the alotted time (3-4 seconds) to predesignated passing zones/buckets that are thrown between his protection...

The only threat he should face is from outside rushers where long-armed tackles (Strief, Armstead) have forced the edge rushers on a long outside arc giving Brees time while the guards and center have held front pass rushers at bay...

Grubbs has failed miserably in pass protection since he was signed; two seasons ago was the best illustration as the young Miami pass rush was taking turns "throwing" Grubbs around; if not for some timely wheel routes by Sproles, the game would have had an ugly conclusion; but it portended of things to come - an aged, slowing offensive line...

Quick digression - Grubbs was the next highest rated guard in FA in the season Loomis elected to let Carl Nicks walk; the Saints Front Office grossly overpaid for Grubbs services overestimating the slight amount more it would have cost to keep an underappreciated Nicks; now, that's done and it's time to get things right up front...

Signing Boling should be the priority; and while there would be some dead money in designating Grubbs a post June 1 departure, that dead money, plus what it'd take to sign Boling would put the cap number at nearly 10 million per year...

As Boling's already been a top 10 guard, coupled with Boling entering his prime, and coming to a better offense and coach, Boling will be primed to earn what should be an All-Pro honor to justify his signing, not to mention more effective protection up front for Brees to return to his normal comfort zone...

Saavy?

Looks like Davon House will be off the market. Starting to run out of good CB options...

Seems like a good fit for him. I don't think he was on our list of FA corner prospects.
