I watched pretty much every game they played (Sunday Ticket and NFL Network). Partly because they are our rival and also because I have been a member of one of their forums for years (as the token Saints fan). I like to stay informed.

Re: Another Falcons player Saints are interested with.

McClain has been one of the league's worst cover corners as the Falcons' slot man the past couple seasons and should come extremely cheap. Cornerback is a huge need for the Saints, but McClain wouldn't be guaranteed anything

Um, cover corners are rare in the NFL and they seldom if ever play nickle. That whole statement was crap.

Re: Another Falcons player Saints are interested with.

I would rather go through the draft than overpay for someone who isn't all that talented.

There are two options.
1. We go with the CBs we have (maybe the CFL guy comes through, maybe SJB finally gets playing time). Instead of spending big or drafting high we spend big and draft high on pass rushers.
2. We reach with an early pick in the draft, but if Waynes isn't there no other CB is worth the 13th pick.

Re: Another Falcons player Saints are interested with.

Also, Mcclain rated out as a -8.1 according to PFF. That is a far lower rating than PROB and Corey White.

There really isn't too much talent available for CBs this year.

Re: Another Falcons player Saints are interested with.

Buster Skrine
Devon House
C Culliver
Cortland Finnegan
Tarell Brown (played for a year with Dennis Allen/Oakland) ...

I wonder if the Saints have reached out to any of these available FA's?

Re: Another Falcons player Saints are interested with.

I'd like to remind the members of this community of something regarding our defensive back situation...

Dennis Allen is back in the house!

This is the guy who validated Tracey Porter as a second round pick!!!

Re: Another Falcons player Saints are interested with.

Shouldn't we be worrying about getting under the cap prior to targeting any FA? We still have a fair amount of work to do here.
