Agreed

The Steelers and the Raiders both drafted guys at LB in Ryan Shazier and Kalil Mack, both had pretty good rookie seasons.

I was holding out hope Saints would package up to get Mack

Mason Foster
Rolando McClain
Rey Maualuga

David Harris
Hawk was awful last year... There is a reason why he was cut. He'll make Shanle look good at this point in his career.

Benson doesn't have the free money laying around.

The litigation Benson is going through is costing him too much. Loomis was free in the past to spend what he wanted but the reluctance to restructure contracts this year tells me there are financial issues.

We'd eat the bonus money. He'd be 1/2 the price to other teams.

I doubt the cost of that litigation amounts to anything more than the cost of a couple UDFA's.

That's absurd. Did you see the Picayune today? Benson is worth $1.9 BILLION per Forbes magazine. That's billion, with a "B." The money Benson spends on litigation is completely unrelated to the Saints payroll. Besides, the Saints payroll is capped by the league anyway....he can only spend so much, no matter what. That's called a "salary cap" -- ever heard the term? Are you aware the lawsuit is only about 60% of the Saints, which are in the trust. You don't know much about finance, if you think it is affecting Loomis and the actual team in any way. The 2015 money is set and capped and already accounted for, no matter what happens in court.

I like the move, it isn't that he isn't good, but he can't cover against the pass, so...

Re: Lofton being shopped?

If it is true I am guessing there has been a conversation with Ryan & Allen. Don't worry there is a plan.
