What's even more nuts is that a guy like Jason Hatcher would actually be an upgrade... That's how bad we are at DT right now. Hatcher could be a good pick-up. He was miscast as a 5 technique last season in Washington.

Re: 2016 Saints Free Agency

Is it safe to assume Craig Robertson left New Orleans without a deal?

Our front office does same stupid thing year in and year out. Do they have a plan? Start below average guards, backups? start inexperienced rookies? WTF

Re: 2016 Saints Free Agency

Come on guys and gals. The Saints are doing what they have to do as a team. Adding depth and experience are something we truly need behind young players. I still want an upgrade or 2 on the defensive line now. We can address everything else in the draft. The secondary will be so much better with an above average front seven. We will get there give Loomis time. Lauranitus is a great experience booster for all of the younger players and I would guess that's why he's coming to New Orleans.

Wish the Saints would bring back NT Lawrence Virgil...

He showed promise before the injury, had great size...

(excerpt)

The New Orleans Saints declined to extend the contracts of three players for whom they had exclusive rights.

The contracts of offensive lineman Ryan Seymour and defensive tackles Lawrence Virgil and Austin Brown expired on Wednesday and the Saints chose not to renew them.

All three players are now free agents.

Really had looked forward to seeing Virgil come back and have an impact as a rotation guy for us...
