2016 Saints Free Agency

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Tyrunn Walker is not coming back for backup pay and his injury makes him a risk to sign as a starter... I'd rather take the risk and sign Long... In fact, I'd rather sign Malick Jackson......

Re: 2016 Saints Free Agency

Assuming the Saints FO pass on Trevethian &/or Marshall, what do you think about LB Nigel Bradham ? Could be a WILL in a 4-3 & he is young & quick.

Thoughts?

Believe the front office plan is (a) re-sign Dannell Ellerbe (done); and (b) draft a WLB (My Mock has us taking Wisconsin's Schobel) to learn/backup until he overtakes Ellerbe...

With limited cap space and in need of starters on the defensive line and offensive guards, just don't see us signing another WLBer...

Re: 2016 Saints Free Agency

#3 offense in the NFL is huge.
knowing the saints will be cap rich in 2017 helps a ton too

all i can see is young player hungry and wanting a shot to start signing a short term contract with insensitive. The saints are in a good spot to appeal to defensive players like this. The defense is wide open especially at WLB.

That is why I keep looking at
Tahir Whitehead LB - Detroit Lions
Mark Barron, LB - Los Angeles Rams

Or wise old vets that are not done yet
Robert Ayers, DE - New York Giants signed a 2/$3,750,000.


OG has opens available
Mike Harris, G - Minnesota Vikings
Is interesting. bounced inside to OG after most being a not so good at OT. years 2 at OG could be ?????

Brandon Boykin, CB - Pittsburgh Steelers for the slot???

Patrick Robinson, CB - San Diego Chargers? nah too much

Mark is a very intriguing guy who filled in quite nicely for Olgetree (injured) on that weak side. Also noticed him in the "safety in the box" type role.

Big hitter too.

Re: 2016 Saints Free Agency

Free Agency...

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

Likely to command around $5mil/year

Source: NFL rumors roundup - NFL Rumors- ESPN

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

Likely to command around $10mil/year

NFL rumors roundup - NFL Rumors- ESPN

(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.


And it all starts to come together... [/QUOTE]

This is awesome! Combine this with the impending releases of Colston and Browner and we're gonna have about $12 million in cap space. That's before you factor in the eventual Brees extension and Morestead restructure. Plenty of money to give Armstead a well-deserved extension and sign a tier 1 free agent or two!

Yes, but go back in the thread and look at the cap room some of these teams have...

There's going to be alot of overpaid (context being NFL Salary Cap) players this Free Agency Market...

We'll have to make the hard sell that we're closer to competing than the others...
