Max Unger, settling into his new life with the Saints, gets back on the field Tuesday as off-season training arrives

Two months into his time in New Orleans, Max Unger is starting to settle into his new surroundings.

Unger, who initially told a Seattle radio station that he was bummed about being traded away from the Seahawks, has spent the past month or so going through workouts with his new teammates, playing golf with the rest of the offensive line and getting used to his new city.

Any lingering hesitance understandable given that the Hawaii native had spent all of his time in the contiguous 48 states, both in college at Oregon and in Seattle, in the Pacific Northwest is gone.

Im over all of that, Unger said. Its done with. Im here, Im very happy about it and Im just trying to move forward.

Everyone is entitled to be stupid, but some abuse the privilege.

All little common sense goes a long way.

Well Max, make sure you're doing everything you can as Center to help us win football games and championships; finish out your contract by not missing games and be an elite Center; show honor, dignity for the Saints community and everything will be just fine...

And you'll realize you got the better end of the trade, better city and better fans...

And you can say as much when you do your post-game Superbowl Championship interviews...

Re: Max Unger, settling into his new life with the Saints, gets back on the field Tuesday as off-season training arrives

Max Unger has always been that weight around Jeremy Shockey neck in my book. that trade meant we could not draft Max in 2009. I wanted him back then and I was praying the saints would some how trade back and get a second so we could draft him.

no matter we got him now.

he thinks it is bad now wait till August when the humidity kicks in.

Max Unger, settling into his new life with the Saints, gets back on the field Tuesday as off-season training arrives

Two months into his time in New Orleans, Max Unger is starting to settle into his new surroundings.

Unger, who initially told a Seattle radio station that he was bummed about being traded away from the Seahawks, has spent the past month or so going through workouts with his new teammates, playing golf with the rest of the offensive line and getting used to his new city.

Any lingering hesitance understandable given that the Hawaii native had spent all of his time in the contiguous 48 states, both in college at Oregon and in Seattle, in the Pacific Northwest is gone.

Im over all of that, Unger said. Its done with. Im here, Im very happy about it and Im just trying to move forward.

Unger, a six-year veteran who is generally regarded as one of the leagues best centers when hes healthy, finally will get a chance to start working with the rest of the offensive line in earnest as the Saints begin organized team activities Tuesday, but he already has spent some time building a rapport with quarterback Drew Brees.

Botched snaps are rare in the NFL, but that harmony is developed during the offseason. Unger has spent the past three seasons snapping to the sound and timing of Russell Wilsons voice; now he has to learn Brees cadence and rhythms.

With the exception of a few early miscommunications, Unger has gotten a feel for how Brees operates. Now that OTAs have arrived, Unger can start building an on-field rapport with the rest of the offensive line. Off the field and in the weight room, the affable veteran is already one of the guys.

Max is an awesome dude, guard Tim Lelito said. We work out together every day, and we were actually playing out here last Thursday at Zachs golf tournament, so it was a fun time, just hanging out. We have the same interests and stuff like that. He grew up on a farm in Hawaii; I grew up on a farm in Michigan. So hes an outdoors-type guy, (and) so am I.

Re: Max Unger, settling into his new life with the Saints, gets back on the field Tuesday as off-season training arrives

Max Unger is a solid pro. Keeps himself in football shape, smart and is big time at his position. Outside of Drew Brees, Max is probably a guy we can count on (production on the field) in 2015. He is a beast.

The only question for Unger is can he stay healthy.

3 Centers in three seasons. Pretty much a revolving door under Payton. Hopefully that ends now.

According to Pro Football Talk Unger played in 67 - 96 games. His injuries have been spread out since he entered the league. Missing approximately 30% of games due to injury is nothing to sneeze at. Its not like it was one bad injury and missed the year because of it.

We all know Unger is a monster of a player. That was never a concern.
