Free Agency...

(1) NT Damon Harrison (NYJ), William Penn (Iowa); Height: 6' 4"; Weight: 350 lbs.

Likely to command around $5mil/year

(2) DE Malik Jackson (DEN), Tennessee; Height: 6' 6"; Weight: 290 lbs.

Has suggested coming to the Saints?!?

(3) RG J.R. Sweezy (SEA), NC State; Height: 6' 5"; Weight: 295 lbs.

Could cost approximately 5 mil/year with few Guard options and a demand for the position (Wished we'd signed Boling last season instead of Browner)...

"Plenty of buzz" around J.R. Sweezy in free agency, per report - Field Gulls

(4) LG Tim Lelito (NO), Grand Valley St; 6' 4"; Weight: 315 lbs.


(5) TE Ben Watson (NO), Georgia; Height: 6' 3"; Weight: 255 lbs.

Clog up that middle and things get better off the edge. I'm really hoping the Saints front office is looking hard at this guy.

Re: 2016 Saints Free Agency

I haven't seen any talk about maybe trying to bring back Tyrunn Walker. Everyone seemed to agree that letting him go was a mistake and he'd fill a need for cheap.

Walker was great until two seattle players broke his leg. Disgusting cheapshot...

True... I forgot about that. Hopefully his recovery is going well and he'll be able to be the player he was pre-injury.

I'd also love to bring back Glenn Foster. I don't know why we cut the cord so quickly on him either.
