Darren Howard, and why he won't be a Saint next year

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Better use the franchise tag them unless we just are intent on keeping him. Top 10 salaries sounds better than top 5 though. But 120% of last year\'s salary would be a lot....

Darren Howard, and why he won't be a Saint next year

a good thread here... if only we could do some general managing and let loomy just do the cap/contract aspect.

i do think getting something at all rather than letting him walk away should be a priority. this being so evident is what has me scared with the current management tho.

anyhoo, my fantasy trade i mentioned to some derision is to franchise him and trade to SD. foley had 10 sacks then no one more than 4. some draft predictions have them going for a DE in the first round. they have 2 first round picks and 2 QBs for those looking for an AB replacement. i think howard as a proven commodity would be better than whatever their low (2nd) first round pick ends up as. hell, a 2nd or 3rd rounder ala McKenzie is better than nothing. their dilema at QB is similar as far as cap money goes except that they want (and can afford) brees for another year before deciding on him or rivers.

If the Chargers went for that, i\'d cry until the season started. Howard for Brees or one of their firsts? Not likely, but holy crap. With the money Brees is gonna make when they franchise him, why not Howard and Brooks for Brees and a first? Two birds with one stone. Again, not likely but it\'s fun to dream.

Yes Brees had a good year this year, but i am still concerned about him. i think it would be a wash, between him and Ab....so i would do tha trade to get another 1st rdr and trade both our 1st rdrs to get DJ

:notnice:
