Re: 2016 Saints Free Agency

Overpaying early in free agency is where teams get in trouble. Giants will be regretting that Olivier contract and the Jags will be regretting the Jackson contract the same way we are the Byrd one. We overpaid for Fleener (I like the player and not the contract) because it's early free agency and if you target a guy you have lots of competition. Give it a week or two when the big money is all used up and there will be some more team friendly prices to be paid on still decent free agents.

Cowboys signed Cedric Thornton. 4 years 18mil. Nice deal.

LB Keenan Robinson to the Giants. Damn. Underrated linebacker.

Robinson is oft-injured...

Cedric Thornton will be the starter for all of two months before the Cowboys draft Joey Bosa...

Re: 2016 Saints Free Agency

Ok lets talk cheap solid additions to the bench that are now reaching end of that learning curve and look ready to challenge for serious playing time in the NFL.


Rambo played a considerable amount at safety last season, and really came into his own over the final eight weeks or so. Powell suffered a torn ACL in training camp, but was often pointed to as a great depth player, and a contributor on special teams -- and with such a weak depth chart at inside linebacker, he is a compelling choice. And Charles is a young player that flashes big ability at times, but may be better suited for a 4-3 defense than the 3-4 scheme they run in Buffalo.

Bacarri Rambo SS/FS
Talk about a much needed upgrade to the depth chart, special teams and actually has the ability to put in very productive time in a rotation. He appears to be ready to make that serious push to becoming a starter in the NFL. strike now he might be the best FS/SS prospect on the market for the price.

why was he not drafted on day 2 and lasted till the 6th? multiple suspensions for violating team rules. He was one of my favorite bad boys in 2013 and he has done nothing but fly straight since arriving in the NFL. Getting better each and every year

ILB/OLB Ty Powell

who is coming of an ACL suffered in the preseason last year. Athletic small school prospect. special teams upgrade day 1. There is signs he can be part of an active rotation also. Two more years out probably till you good idea what of exactly what he can contribute.

What does this team needs on defense? A talent upgrades across the board that not only improves the rotation but will impact the very bad special teams play we have seen over the past few years.

These are the type of signing I was expecting. The Saints depth chart is a joke and there is little or no prospects that really have a chance of pushing the starters. these type of signing are like having multiple 4th rounds picks knowing they will be solid additions and will be productive.

DT Stefan Charles was already grabbed up by the lions our he would be on this also.

Re: 2016 Saints Free Agency

how about a WR that is not a #1 but you would be hard-pressed to do better for a #3/4 than

Anquan Boldin, WR, San Francisco 49ers?

How about another miss cast that had a down year. Might be cheap after failing as a NT in a 34 and a short term prove it contract might be an option. Returning to a 4-3 like the one he played in in Denver might be just what the dr ordered.

Terrance Knighton, DT, Washington Redskins

Casey Hayward? still out there

Knighton for the right price would be a good interior run stuffer.
