If my memory serves me right, he was part of the Bucs' run offense which was upper tier in the league. I remember reading some evaluations where Lorig was given much of the credit with his lead-blocking.

He was above average at catching the ball when it comes to FBs, and he (and the Saints) was unlucky with the injury when he initially came over... never got traction after that.

I liked the move and what it represented, but it certainly went sideways.

5 to 1 Forte will be a PAT.

Re: 2016 Saints Free Agency

With respect to Lorig, I get what your saying Fin, but how they figured his game would translate from the Bucs offense to our offense is where I'd have questions and what the team's thoughts were...

True, but at least on paper he was an upgrade over Jeb.

Yep, and Tampa fans weren't happy about losing him. He just didn't work out here.

Like you said, on paper, it looked like a really good move. He had Dave Thomas upside.

Re: 2016 Saints Free Agency

The Miami Herald believes the Dolphins should release Jordan Cameron.

Cameron is due a non-guaranteed $7.5 million. Releasing him could be the only option if he doesn’t accept a pay cut. Cameron had just a 35/386/3 line his first season in Miami

For the Browns to let him walk despite his popularity with a hostile fan-base; and now possibly being released by Miami - that just creates more questions than answers...

...especially with limited cap space...

Re: 2016 Saints Free Agency

Okay, if we could swing two of the top three in this list and add #4 or #5, we'd be set going into the draft and poised for more of an impact on defense......

(1) NT Damon Harrison (NYJ)

(2) DE Malick Jackson (DEN)

(3) LB Danny Trevathan (DEN)

(4) RG J.R. Sweezy (SEA)*

(5) TE Ben Watson (NO)

The major hurdle to signing those Denver players is that Chicago has their former head coach and over $50 million in cap space. Plus, Chicago has lots of needs on defense. I don't know if they liked playing for John Fox but it seems like an obvious destination if Denver can't retain them.
