Listen, Nick is a super talented player and our defense can use a few above average interior lineman. If the price is right, I'm sure the Saints FO will pull the trigger. I recall coming out of Auburn he appeared to be dirty at times but never a locker room distraction (I'm sure SloMo can chime in on his playing days in Detroit). We need some more big nasties on that D line.

Re: 2016 Saints Free Agency

having a weight clause in your contract shows his character, I've heard stories he would take plays off too ...... sounds like a certain bust who's name isn't mentioned that back when the Saints were dumb enough to trade up for

Re: 2016 Saints Free Agency

Overall, disappointing first day of free agency. A lot of the players I hoped we would make a run at got signed to other teams for reasonable deals. Made no real moves to address the major holes we have on defense, it can't all be done in the draft and there isn't a ton of talent left in free agency.

Re: 2016 Saints Free Agency

I'm just sick and tired of the front office fielding a Porsche on offense but the defense must settle for a used yugo

Major...

We still taking it in the a$$ with Loomis' premature Galette contract...

The reward is not remotely close to the risk of going through all of that again...

We needed a quality defensive end and/or a nose tackle at the least before the draft...

Robert Ayers? Raji ? Clayborn? Chris Long? Who you got JP?

Slim pickings at those positions right now. Nick is a very good 3 tech. IF you can get him cheap (I don't see him getting more than 3M a year), I'm all in. This would be way better than signing a guy for 7-8 M only to show a lot of suckage with our historically bad defense.

Side note: Ayers is on his way to Tampa for a visit.

Re: 2016 Saints Free Agency

Good mornin' everyone! Day 2 of free agency is upon us! It's all about the D-Line now. All of the good guards are gone except for Evan Mathis so it looks like we'll be rolling out some combo of a draft pick, Lelito and Kelemete. Plenty of serviceable DT's and DE's left so let's hope for some good news!

Who is on your short list Chris? I'm getting roasted on the thought of bringing in Fairley on the cheap so I'd like to know who else is available that can somehow add a "fire" to our D.

Thoughts?
