PFF 2015 free agents

Check out the list of FA and their rankings according to PFF here: https://www.profootballfocus.com/blo...gency-tracker/

Here is the list of our FAs:
https://www.profootballfocus.com/blo...rleans-saints/


Walker is very under-valued and needs to be brought back with a larger role. Outside of walker everyone is very replaceable, even Ingram only rates at 1.8, that's slightly above average.

Stat that stood out to me; Goodwin rated at -6.8 and DLP rated at +4.3. Almost every player we let go during the off-season played better than the players who replaced them. Our problem is coaching/motivation, not talent.

So who do we target first?

Does Mickey pull another from his hat and sign a big time player?

Re: PFF 2015 free agnets

Three free agents who'd have the greatest impact on the Saints

C Stefen Wisniewski - Hudson of KC may have a better rating, but this guy has no one around him and he's played guard...

G Clint Boling - he's had a small sampling, but he performed well against some good AFC North D-Linemen

NT Terrence Cody - still believe Jenkins will be fine once he heals, but this would be an excellent young guy to have that position young and always fresh to disrupt the middle...

Also, wouldn't mind vetting out RB Darren McFadden...

I have been a big fan of DMF since he came out of Arkansas but damn, can he stay healthy a full season?

Like these! A good Center who can play Guard.

I wanted us to take big body NT Cody (Alabama) in 2010 because (even then) everyone could run on us up the middle.

That Draft, we took CB Robinson with last pick of the 1st instead of trading down. Or, we could've traded up 7+ spots from our 2nd pick where we screwed up again in taking OT Charlie Brown.

Re: PFF 2015 free agents

C Stefen Wisniewski lets see what his asking price is. i have read he might just price him self out of oakland and think he might think his worth is way more than his level of play. I like to point out the guy is not the greatest shot gun center around. matter of fact he is still got some work to do in that department. but he is young 26 and just did the switch so lets see what happens.

NT Dan Williams is still atop my FA wish list. we got enough back up beef already. need a starter.

ILB Mason Foster i really hope they let him slip through the cracks in tampa. this is my roll the dice guy in FA. injury-plagued this year i know but this is the first year he has not played 15 or more games.

Isn't lavonte David available this year too? If he is I doubt Tampa can pay them both.

We'll sign: A TE, A FB, A LB, A SS or FS and of course a bunch of washed up PK.

Last 3 seasons: 3,3 yards per carry

Last 4 games in 2014: 4, 2, 9, 4 run attempts.

This season is the first time he didn't miss any games but he was ineffective and limited.

No. David's under contract through 2015.
