Saints coach Sean Payton made it clear last week ó during an impromptu media ethics lecture ó that he had no intention of ever including quarterback Drew Brees in his teamís extreme makeover.

But that doesnít mean some more significant changes arenít coming.

According to Peter King of Sports Illustrated, the Saints are expected to remain active on several fronts leading up to the draft.

Two deals he mentions are possible trades of guard Jahri Evans and defensive end Cameron Jordan.

Evans and Jordan aren't going anywhere.

I could however see a possible trade of one of the 10 safeties we have on our roster....

God knows we need more. What was the last team to win a Superbowl that didn't have AT LEAST 20 safties on the roster?

If Jahri Evans restructures i will be floored if he is traded. well at least before the draft. if he does not then anything can happen.

Cameron Jordan not sure if i buy into this one unless his agent is way out of line for a new contract. then there might be something to it

Ellerbe's cap hit is now higher than thought. Look for Jahri to restructure in two weeks. We need room to sign draft picks!

Re: Saints could remain active, all the way through draft weekend

Ellerbe's cap hit is $1,900,000

Dannell Ellerbe Contract, Salary Cap Details & Breakdowns | Spotrac

we have to sign rookies so it has to happen with Evans. still hoping the saints work the draft to move some of the picks to the 2016 draft. cap will be easier to deal with. dead money will drop greatly also

i would post the 2016 FA list for the saints but it is just too freaking long.

oh what the heck
