Malik Jackson and Trevathan are playing great so far.

I know we won't have the cap space but man I would have loved to see Von Miller in black and gold. He is having a fantastic game against the Patriots.

Re: 2016 Saints Free Agency

Just thinking the same
If only uncle Benson could find the money for him and Wilkerson or am i being greedy

Jordan and Wilkerson on the edge,Kikaha and Miller as OLB. Best DT in the draft

Sad face wheb reality hits

Re: 2016 Saints Free Agency

Unfortunately Dennis Allen doesn't doesn't use guys like Von Miller and Khalil Mack properly as seen in his last two stops where he had them playing strong side LB in his 4-3. Sadly, it's the same fate that awaits Kikaha. These guys are edge rushers but Dennis Allen has his system and that's that.

Really impressed with Trevathan; really hoping we can make a run at him and Damon Harrison...

Re: 2016 Saints Free Agency

NT Damon Harrison should be the Saints No. 1 priority in recruiting free agents this coming offseason...

But Danny Trevathan was pretty impressive yesterday running all over the field in coverage against the NE RB James White et al...

Sign those two guys, get Brees, Colston, Armstead some updated contracts...

Maybe sign a guard in free agency - Ryan Wendell comes to mind...

We'll be right back in it...

Von's rookie year under Allen he put up 11.5 sacks playing roughly the same role and rushing the passer about the same amount. Khalil is a good pass rusher but I'd like to think that Von Miller is a more natural pass rusher.

Re: 2016 Saints Free Agency

Von Miller was beastly last night. They won that game on his back with some help from Ward,Jackson and Wolfe. Manning is done,they won in spite of him. Bringing him back as the starter is a mistake

I just feel that after it took Gronk to almost tie the Denver game, Brees needs someone to be clutch. Getting all these players who will never be elite is just not the way to go. I would like for Brees to restructure by 10 mil, other players to restructure, Colston to move on and saints to sign a big receiver.
