2016 Saints Free Agency

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I'd sign Sean Spence. I'm just going to assume we're a 3-4 team from now on. Eric Weddle isn't going to come to New Orleans. I wouldn't mind Evan Mathis on a 2 year deal. I don't know if Chris ...

I'd be fine with keeping Kenny Phillips around for vet minimum.

We are running a 43. As soon as Allen took over we never ran a 34 set. Also Allen has always run 43 sets in his previous roles.

Yes, we are a 4-3 team, because our talent is better suited for a 4-3.

I'd agree that we're running a 4-3 because of Allen...

Hau'oli Kikaha is a clear 3-4 OLB and was lost once Allen took over...

John Jenkins was a big 3-4 NT that we spent two draft picks to get...

Jenkins was asked to lose weight last pre-season and be a 3-tech Tackle - bad, bad idea...

Cam Jordan's size and abilities allow him to play in either a 3-4 or 4-3...

Stephone Anthony can play in both sets, but was projected to be a standout 3-4 ILB...

Davis Tull was scouted best as a 3-4 OLB, Jack Linebacker...

Tyeler Davison was projected as a Nose Tackle or a run stopping 3-4 DE...

Now, the last group of UDRFA clearly were better suited to a 4-3, and also added to Rob Ryan's exit and Allen's installment...

But I don't agree necessarily that our talent is better suited 4-3...

In Fact, I'd argue it's a mistake putting Allen in charge now because we had clearly acquired personnel to transition to a 3-4; Sean Payton was on record as saying so...

Our problems on defense will continue as we flip-flop on our defensive identity...

I'm not overly optimistic spending high draft choices on defense with Allen in charge running a 4-3 defense with best talent best suited to a 3-4 ...
