Maybe a tip of things to come; went back and found this nugget from Barry...

SACK ATTACK: Saints 2016 Draft Top Pass-Rusher Targets

(excerpt)

At the end of last season before the Week #16 home finale against the Jaguars, CBS Sports play-by-play announcer Andrew Catalon revealed that that the Saints plan to be very aggressive in the upcoming off-season about addressing the problems on defense.

In a pre-game interview earlier that week Saints head coach Sean Payton told Catalon specifically that the Saints “planned to pursue a pass rusher” in Free Agency — though as it’s been well-documented, just how aggressive the Saints really are or aren’t in Free Agency will be determined by how much money they’re able to free up by getting further underneath the salary cap.

Good find JP! That makes me even more excited about these next couple of days. I know you're all in on Malik Jackson but who would be your #2 pass rushing target? I don't think I've seen you mention who your consolation prize would be.

DE Chris Long, Los Angeles Rams

DE Derrick Shelby, Miami Dolphins

DE William Hayes, Los Angeles Rams

DE Jason Jones, Detroit Lions

Of course, the other part of the pie was signing NT Damon Harrison; that could allow you to kick out someone to DE as a big anchor-type, 5-tech type...

Then you could let these young perimeter pass rushers attack from the edge or stunt underneath...

FWIW ...

Free agent DE Charles Johnson will visit the Giants on Sunday.

Relevant part - see below:

"Johnson is also expected to have interest from the Saints. Sort of a poor man's Justin Tuck, Johnson is a base left end who can rush from the interior in passing situations." Mar 5 - 7:30 PM

Update -

LATEST NEWS
RECENT NEWS
ESPN Saints reporter Mike Triplett said he could definitely see New Orleans pursuing a "second-tier defensive end" like Charles Johnson in free agency.
He listed Robert Ayers, William Hayes and Chris Long as other edge rushers the Saints might be interested in. The Saints only have around $10 million in cap space right now, which likely takes them out of the running for Jason Pierre-Paul and Mario Williams. Adding a pass-rusher needs to be a point of emphasis for New Orleans. Only five teams logged fewer sacks than the Saints in 2015. Mar 4 - 1:36 PM
