New Orleans Saints sign LB Anthony Spencer

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Its because he was coming off of injury and misused last year in Dallas. Is he the team's savior, I doubt it but he's an upgrade to what the team had last year on obvious passing downs...

Re: New Orleans Saints sign LB Anthony Spencer

Anthony Spencer signs for what? waiting to see

coming off a micro fracture of the knee (2013) after getting tagged($10.63)? understandable but not a huge factor

Lets look at all our long deep top notch list of DE/OLB already on the team?
opppsss read the warning sign. NO DIVING! SHALLOW DEPTH

Money is a huge factor in my level joy with this signing. but given the other issues i am cool with it. once again the cap hit is what?

Far from washed up. I'd argue that if healthy, he's just as serviceable (maybe more so than Harralson)

So you're predicting Spencer will suffer season ending injuries in training camp?

I agree. I believe he would start over Harrison in a competition for the spot. I'd still love to have another, young OLB and ILB, but I'll wait and see what happens.

I'm predicting that micro-fracture is a difficult surgery for a guy his age to recover from.

I'm predicting that his speed which made him a guy who could get to the QB is diminished.

I'm predicting he won't make much of an impact. He can play the run, but if he gets more than 3 sacks, I'd be surprised.

My overall point is that Dallas could have had him. Word was his preference was to stay there and they made little effort to sign him even though he was at a position of need. They also would have had the best access to his medical records.

I could be wrong, but banking on Spencer would be a mistake. It's a meh signing to me.

Re: New Orleans Saints sign LB Anthony Spencer

If we go into next season with Haralson and Spencer backing up Galette and another OLb we are in far better shape. Keep the rotation going with the rushers and NT and we should look far fresher and get to the QB more often
