this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; RG Tim Lelito, TE Ben Watson, TE Josh Hill are the only guys I'd be worried about on that list......

Sign...

DE Malik Jackson is going to command Cam Jordan numbers...

NT Damon Harrison is going to between 5 to 6 mil per year....

Got to get bigger, stronger on the defensive line...

If Drew wants Guards, let him follow Brady's example...

Couldn't hurt to take a look but I wouldn't understand this signing.

Well there are a few NT in the draft. 34DE also. wish they would make up their minds. 34 DL in the first?

Jarran Reed, DT/DE, Alabama 6034 313 5.14

and kick the table over for trading Akiem Hicks.

After Reed I really do not like the 34 defense options in round 1. loaded with 43 DE that think they can be 34 OLB.

stick with 43 and have Laurinaitis play mentor for the most part. strong side LB? then what would you do with Kikaha?

mentor and 3 down MLB

cut Dannell Ellerbe who has no dead money and always in the tub? pretty much an even swap

+1. Hopefully it's only a 'visit' and nothing more.

Per PFF Laurinitis graded at 2nd worst in pass coverage, slow and poor against the run. Isn't this why Hawthorne was shown the door?? He is also a PURE MIKE like Stephone (why move him?). I simply don't understand why the Saints front office keeps wheeling guys in to NO that are past their prime. Maybe he comes super duper cheap or added depth.

Stay young, faster, stronger. PASS.

Really expect Ellerbe to bounce back for us this season; wouldn't mind drafting a WLB (Myles Jack in a perfect world) to mentor this season...

Bama's Jarran Reed and LaTech's Vernon Butler are the only really good fits I see at DT/DE for the Saints in the first round this season...

And even then the rookies will be limited in their first seasons as rookies with inexperience and adjusting to the strength, speed of the NFL...

That's why I'd prefer we go all out and sign Free Agents Malick Jackson and Damon Harrison and have known quantities at need positions...

Thereby given us the flexibility to maximize the best possible moves and selections in the NFL draft...

I have been reading that Malik's agent is wanting ridiculous money to retain his services in 2016. Broncos could save franchise tag for DE Malik Jackson

I think he is off our radar however Damon could be another story ... he can be had.

Re: 2016 Saints Free Agency

It appears to me that this isn't the FA or draft to really be able to start contending in this thread.
