The release would be one thing if we had a back-up plan waiting in the wings... but we have... who?

Re: Curtis Lofton Released

Thanks for time Lofton.
I'm not surprised with this move however. The fact that he was our strongest LB in the first place speaks volumes to the need for upgrades.

Re: Curtis Lofton Released

The Saints got three good years out of him and his contract was structured for an easy release this year. It was an amiable separation it appears. The guy is pure class. My oldest son who coaches Lofton's neighbor's child, was given a signed game jersey by Lofton himself. It is framed on his wall in Metairie.

It looks damned good and would go well with all my other Saints collection, but it was given to my son and he would never let me have it. Here it is while I had it to get it framed at the top of my Saints shrine. By the way, I lost a bet with a Seahawks fan and had to take pictures of the hat he sent me.




Lofton is pure class all the way.

I don't know who we will draft and who we might get as FA at the lb. positions but with Gallette, Ediboli, Harrelson, Powell, Hawthorn, Knox and Humber I expect 4 maybe 5 of those guys to make it, that leaves 3 or 4 more lb.'s that will have to be picked up to make a total of 8 in a 3-4 set. I look for the Saints to draft at least 1 or 2 and pick up 1 or 2 as FA. Also looking at the front 3 I wouldn't be suprized to see the heavy guys that can occupy multiple blockers stay and the lighter guys go. I sill believe we get another NT in the draft.
Halleluah, keep Gallette (unless traded), up n' comer Ediboli, solid backup Harrelson, and Powell. Draft 2, pickup 2 FA or UDFA.

I know he is best as a 2 down guy but he is good against the run.

Id be very wary of giving McClain either a prominent role leading thr defense or a multiyear deal.

Id really like to pick up a pair of ILB in the draft now.
Totally agree. Spikes looks intriguing. Can "only" stop the run? Yes, please. Couple of ILBs, 1 OLB, and an NT in the draft also, I hope.

I think you're brilliant. Forgot to say, I think your instincts to be wary of LB McClain (after his single good year) is wise.
