Have to disagree. He's a great talent but needs to stay healthy.

Re: PFT: Saints, Cardinals In Play For Sean Weatherspoon

Would be odd having him here considering the words he had on social media for some of our players.

However, when healthy he is a top ILB that can hang in coverage. He could be a good pick-up for us but it needs to be at the right price because of the injury history.

Surly he's going to be cheap considering injuries. I rate him highly but injuries are a massive concern.

Re: Saints Want Weatherspoon

I said on another thread i really rate Weatherspoon but his injury history is a massive red flag for me. Im not against it on a cheap prove it deal

Re: Saints Want Weatherspoon

He's a freak athlete. He stands out when he's on the field and has great speed. I think we should go back to a 4-3 if we sign him. It puts Lofton back at his natural MLB spot. Weatherspoon can be the strong side backer while Haraylson and Hawthorne rotate on the weakside (or hopefully we upgrade there.) Moves Junior back to his natural DE spot, and makes Cam Jordan disposable because he's a 3-4 DE. But we'll see.

Re: Saints Want Weatherspoon

Players get hurt. It's part of the game. That being said, they don't all get hurt throughout their entire careers. Saying someone is injury prone is a misconception. Some players are not as lucky as others for different reasons. Freak accidents or playing so all out and reckless that they hurt themselves. It takes a player a few seasons to acclimate themselves to the NFL. They come in trying to impress and play too reckless and get hurt. Sometimes those players are the playmakers everyone is looking for but because they haven't matured yet, get hurt in their first couple years. Could be because they don't get enough rest because they're out partying with their new found riches, some get hurt because they don't eat the right things to help their bodies regenerate and heal. I just don't necessarily think someone is just predisposed to injury. I also don't think one player is more apt to get injured than another player. If Spoon was hurt earlier in his career then the odds would seem to be in his favor to not be injured for several years. I'd be in favor of giving Spoon a 2 year contract and see how it goes with if they're worried about it have an injury clause. The guy's obviously got playmaker talent. I'd say give him a shot.

Re: Saints Want Weatherspoon

I wouldnt be against the change back to a 4-3 though im not sure Galette is a great DE in that scheme, I did read somebody suggesting using Galette as both a LB and DE similar to how the Broncos use Von Miller(i know he is 10x the player).

Good bit here on the Broncos base defenses of a couple of years back
Denver D: Broncos Big Men and the front 7 - Mile High Report

This is the same way Dennis Allen played the Broncos as DC.

Dont think it gets done this year though
