looking at the OG on the roster only Evans does not come with huge question marks

If the saints are going to make a super bowl run personnel wise this would be the signing to indicate that was the plan in 2015. the saints would quickly become a top 5 OL in the NFL.

It would definitely be a unit to eat up clock and keep the defense off the feild. that would make Rob look like a miracle worker yet again. when in reality he coaches a defense to stop a team in catch up mode, which is vastly different from a coaching a defense to stop teams from scoring at will.

never know he may join for a shot at the ring.

Re: Evan Mathis released.

What an O Line we would have if this guy is nabbed up. We can get him, its just how bad do they want him. Drew with time makes every reciever a pro bowler. Will the real Nick Toon please stand up

Make it happen Loomis.

Re: Evan Mathis released.

It will be interesting to see where he ends up. On one hand, he is a very good LG. On the other hand, he is at the age where teams are reluctant to pay huge amounts for his services, especially at the guard position.

I really don't have any predictions as to what kind of money will be there for him which makes it hard to even know if the Saints could be in the running.

Re: Evan Mathis released.

I wouldn't mind picking this guy up but only for two years tops and I don't think we have the means cap wise to afford him and also anyone else we may need through the year. I really think we can be effective with what we've got and invest in a young guard in FA or high in the draft next year. We need to get a young line that can grow together so when Brees retires, they'll have that chemistry(in theory anyways) for whoever takes over at QB.

Four potential landing spots for Evan Mathis - NFL.com

He was scheduled to make $5.5, but wanted more
Seattle looks to be the ideal spot for him

At 34 years old, he is the oldest starting OG in the NFL. He was scheduled to make 6 million, refused a 1 million dollar raise so I'd assume he probably wants at least 8 million per season if not more.

He's from Alabama so maybe he wants to move back down South? He's Bob Baumhower's nephew by the way! Roll Tide!!!

Re: Evan Mathis released.

We don't have $8 million for a guy who's likely to play one season with us.

Yeah as really if he wants to play. Then take a pay cut. If you want to keep on playing.

I say we offer him what he was already making.

I hear a lot of Eagle's players are pissed off at Chip's BS and just want out of that dumpster fire.

Maybe he just wants out and his contract demands are simply a ploy to get him cut so he can sign elsewhere for basically the same money.
