Re: 2016 Saints Free Agency

I honestly don't know anything about Craig. Fast? How is he in pass coverage? If he can be had on the cheap, bring him in to camp and see what he does.

Side note: I wonder if the Saints FO have any interest in Zach Brown or T Whitehead?

Re: 2016 Saints Free Agency

I think Whitehead must have resigned with Detroit. I didn't see his name on the list of available free agents. Haven't seen news of any transactions regarding him either though..

Fry,

Thanks for the update. Yep, I see the Lions re signed him (Tahir Whitehead).

Robertson 28, is a pass-coverage specialist at inside linebacker. 6-1 234 - so an over sized safety

If you watched any Browns games in 2014, you probably noticed Robertson jump off the screen when they were on defense. The guy is a playmaker. He started games at the Mo and Mike linebacker spots in the Browns 3-4 defense.
Robertson had 99 combined tackles in 2014, but 37 stops at, or behind, the line of scrimmage. He is always around the ball, which is an instinct you want in a linebacker. He also is good in coverage, with 4 passes defensed and 2 interceptions last year. This earned him a +2.2 cumulative grade via Pro Football Focus.
One of the attributes that sets Robertson apart from his peers is his intensity. He’s a tenacious player and that type of swagger and spirit could be used in Denver. He also has experience playing with his former Browns teammate, T.J. Ward. But that’s neither here nor there.

Re: 2016 Saints Free Agency

Craig Robertson would be awesome to have when Ellerbe suffers the inevitable injury this season.
