BTW: I think we're still going after a big time free-agent.

Re: Saints restructure Byrd's roster bonus...

Last year no one thought we'd make a splash and we signed Byrd to a mega contract. It's definitely a possibility. It'll be interesting to see what position it will be... I'm guessing linebacker. I'm also very interested in seeing how that San Fran ILB situation plays out.

Yeah I do too, especially because of the release of PT and the attempt to move Lofton

I am thinking the same about the LB spot, hence moving CL. It be nice to get someone in like we did with Vilma so long ago. I think that man was very underrated in everything he did for us and his football IQ

Why isn't he coaching for us?
