Lofton being shopped?

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; If Lofton goes we lose another veteran. If he stays we still have a two down backer(playing three downs) who is a liability in coverage with a high payroll....

I would be more interested to see him bulk up to a clean 235 and play LB...

Vaccaro is not a safety. You need instincts to play safety not speed, unfortunately Vaccaro lacks both.

KV at LB?? Funny .... after all of the tackles he either missed or whiffed at last year, no thanks. The last thing we need is another slow LB who can't tackle consistently.

Let's see what Kenny V does in year 3. He now has a healthy ball hawk in Byrd lined up next to him for 2015 .

KV never played Safety in it's pure form.

Maybe you missed it but everyone missed a **** ton of tackles last year. Generally I would say he is one of the better tacklers on the team, in his rookie year he was great in this aspect. Secondly, you've got to be joking about the "slow" LB... he ran a 4.5 40 which would make him one of the faster ILB in the league...

Kenny either gets moved to a different spot or he ends up a bust of a draft pick. He can't play safety.

actually i would love to see Kasim Edebalitry try ILB in camp.

other than that i really do not see anyone as a starter or even peeks my curiosity to see if they can be a starter. maybe we are not having ILB and replacing them with more safeties. 3 DL 2 OLB 2 CB and 4 S

After having a pair of turnstiles as LBs last year i think making a change to sand filled traffic cones might be a bit better. I Guarantee they will be better in coverage
