Didn't say that, PT has plenty left in the tank. This smells like a desperation move by the Saints to land a corner in free agency (see: David, Jason).

Well we dont have the cap space to be vastly overpaying for CB like this years market is dictating
Maxwell 9/10ml a year
Jackson 8.5ml

We need a nickel CB so this guy could be a decent option.

Height isn't everything when it comes to CBs. The trend nowadays is for teams to look for 6-2 corners, but many times those taller CBs don't have the necessary hip fluidity to keep up with the receivers. Now of course you go for the taller guy with all other things being equal between two choices, but the ability to track the ball in flight and to time the jump to meet the ball at your highest point is far more important than few inches of height.

uh yeah f you're talking 5'11 vs 6'2, not 5'9 dude. We play a lot of man, like someone else said, that has Jason David written all over it. No thank you. We need a number 2, and this dude is not it.

We need a number 3 as well and McClain played well in that capacity for the Failclowns.

We can't afford one of the top guys apparently. If his price is right I would bring him in for an interview. But I don't even know if he can play press effectively.....I don't think he can.

Well, I'd still take a 5-9 baller instead of a 6-4 scarecrow.

And my argument wasn't for signing this particular player, just that the height argument is used far too much IMO when it comes to CBs.
