Glaring deficiency from last year?

Pass rush.

There's your prize FA.

This move creates a little space for this year, but it pushes more of the hit on Byrd down the road. We better hope he bounces back from the injury, cause now he needs to be good even longer.

Me too... Willis, Borland, Bowman, Wilhoite & Moody. Talented but crowded ILB group so someone has to go.

Willis or Borland to New Orleans?

Cant see them letting Borland go on a cheap rookie deal

Bowman. Ironic but he'd be our best overall LB instantly.

I'd be happy with anyone on that list and as soon as they sign would be the Saints best LB

They put Wilhoite on the trade block. He's the odd man out but I don't know anything about him.

If I was running the Saints I'd sign in bulk instead of going after one BIG piece.
