GRUBBS TRADED per Adam Schefter

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Ali Marpet in the third round... Wouldn't spend that high on a pick on Collins, not that he isn't a good player... If Scherff is still there, yes, but not Collins......

I love Collins but by the sound of the players we are bringing in Scherff wouldn't surprise me in the least.

Re: GRUBBS TRADED per Adam Schefter

Chiefs acquire G Ben Grubbs from Saints for 5th-round pick
The Saints had to make drastic changes after last year's debacle. Two days after shockingly trading Jimmy Graham to the Seahawks, Sean Payton dumped off a former Pro Bowl guard to the Chiefs.

Grubbs signed a 5-year, $36 million contract with New Orleans back in March 2012. He had a couple of excellent seasons for the Saints, but fell off in 2014. He wasn't terrible, but he was far from the dominant force who blocked so effectively for Drew Brees. Grubbs just turned 31, so perhaps this downward trend will continue. If so, it's a good thing the Saints are unloading him now. Even though it's just for a fifth-round pick, it's better than getting nothing for him a year from now.

Meanwhile, I can't really blame the Chiefs for taking a shot on Grubbs. Their offensive line was atrocious last year, struggling mightily to block for Alex Smith. Grubbs will definitely be an upgrade, even if he doesn't revert to his former, dominant self. Kansas City probably wouldn't get anything better than two seasons of a mediocre Grubbs in the fifth round, so why not acquire him?

Grade for Chiefs - B
Grade for Saints - B

Don't let the door hit ya where the good Lord split ya

He never did live up to expectations of replacing Nicks and was way overpaid

Depending on who we replace him with...but I am happy we got something for him considering we were just going to cut him anyway.

So this is quite off-topic but you'll love Stockholm in the summer. Let me know if you need ideas of what to see, where to eat etc.

exactly, it was better to get a lottery ticket in a draft pick rather than nothing

Wondering if this is Stills' fate too (if the rumor is true), get a draft pick/players OR he's cut
