Re: 2016 Saints Free Agency

Jeff Ireland and company needs to have another solid draft.

If we are running the 4-3, I'm still beating the drum on Mr. Nick Fairley. The quickness and speed is still there and he is strong.

Bring him in on the cheap to New Orleans.

Re: 2016 Saints Free Agency

Probably won't see more signings until we get closer to training camp...

Veterans aren't going to participate in the off-season, mini-camp programs on a minimum, low-ball salary...

They'll hire a trainer and stay in some kind of shape and wait out attrition and for teams to come to them (leverage)...

Re: 2016 Saints Free Agency

Tyeler Davison is a poor mans Sheldon Rankins Just needs time to develop. Tyeler Davison is better off at 43 DT not 34DE or a 34 NT. His game is all about quickness and splitting the gaps. Never agreed with the 34 DE talk. Plenty of upside at the right position. Actual may turn out to be better than Rankins at DT down the road.

John Jenkins is a rotational NT in 43.
He is not quick enough for 43DT. Not strong enough for 34NT. Not sold he has the desire to be the starter

Stephone Anthony fared pretty well as a MLB in a 43 set
. I will judge in 3 years what we got. they dumped a lot on the kid. so far so good

Davis Tull I can see him as a 4-3 Sam.
Starter? not sure yet. He was a WR in high school which always helps. He is athletic enough to handle it. Remember he was one of the freak-show in the pre draft beauty pageants. He obliterated the Combine 42 1/2-inch vertical and 11-foot broad jump and a pro day forty of 4.57. Thats still freakish even by 2016 standards. Football IQ was rated as high. No one questions his motor either. Give him a couple of years and lets see what we got. There is more to this kid than pass rushing skills. Plus special teams impact will be huge while we are waiting. I am actually looking forward to this show over the next couple of years.

But Kikaha is the biggest question mark in a 43. Hard to peg the kid for anything but a 34. Kikaha game is down hill and behind the line. DE? He may end up being a pass rush specialist. But I am not selling him short as an option at SLB. Some work is needed, ok maybe a good bit but stranger things have worked out. Besides it not like we have any DE opposite of Cam anyways that provide a pass rush. Weak side attacking DE?

I see this group as flexible enough to go 43. But we have a bunch of starters right now that are better suited as rotational players. Which I may blame Rob for but I will give DA some time and see were he goes with this.

Tyeler Davison DT is the move I am hoping for the most this off season. He does needs a space eater with some pass rush skills to open things up for him.

I wanted the Saints to sign him before he went to Denver, but I'm not sure if it isn't too late now.

I would take Anquan Boldin and Mike Neal (OLB Green Bay) in a heartbeat.

I would think we need more of a post-up, big receiver with reliable hands to replace Colston in the offense...

Always liked Boldin as the perfect No. 2 receiver...
