I like Cameron as well but I wonder if he is 100% healthy & still has that burst?

Re: 2016 Saints Free Agency

There are a few guys on the defensive side I can see that could help like possibly Hendry Melton Cullen Jenkins Courtney Upshaw and I'm also at the point where our defense has been so awful in recent years I'd almost consider to hell with the risk of character we nasty mean guys I'd almost consider bringing in Greg hardy or even Aldon Smith I'm that desperate to have someone actually get to the opposition"s qb I really don't give a scrap if they are thugs that deserve to be in chains

I haven't read much about him being a locker room problem. He has a reputation for disappearing at times on the field, but he probably learned that from Ndrama-king Suh.

I'd be fine with him here.

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.

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...
Major, don't believe we should compound a bad situation by making the same mistake we made with Junior by bringing in someone who can't grow up, act like a professional and play hard regardless if it's a contract year or naught...

I just question the forward thinking, planning for this team with regards to personnel, contractual commitments...

Sure, many things can change each season, but we've got no long term management to really allow us that room we need to correct problems without losing a season or two because of bad contracts...

You know what? Looking back over the list of DT's that are left is pretty underwhelming. I'd like to bring in Nick Fairley... But it just makes me a little nervous. He's really our only hope though of getting a DT that isn't just a 2 down run stopper. I can't really think of any others who would boost our interior pass rush.

Re: 2016 Saints Free Agency

Well, take Shelby and Clayborn off the short list; and they're Falcons now to boot...

Falcons re-sign Adrian Clayborn | ProFootballTalk

Chris Long to the Falcons?!? Wow, wonder what's happening in the front office right now...

Re: 2016 Saints Free Agency

We either need to bulk Jenkins back up as a Nose Tackle or sign one...

And we need a big defensive end to anchor opposite Cam Jordan...

Would never roast you my brother...

Roasted, hang out with me this past week when express freight ends up on the left coast and customers are screaming for your blood...

With regards to Fairley, I'd rather spin this into a undrafted free agent recruiting gig for the Saints and not having his troubles or him blocking a young, hungry kid from the roster...

How about bringing back Al Woods? He's done pretty well at times recently.
