Re: 2016 Saints Free Agency

No. 45 Nick Fairley, who’s reportedly getting close to a deal with the Saints.
Only thing of significance from PFT

Oh and this in the comment section:

Nick Fairley is a player who is capable of controlling the line of scrimmage. And that capability wins football games.

I knew the falcons were going to do a good job on defense in the off season. Yep makes one think about the quality of OG and RT play. both unanswered questions.

Signing of Mac floored me.

Josh Hill's Bears Offer Sheet Matched by Saints: Latest Comments, Reaction
By Daniel Kramer , Featured Columnist

The New Orleans Saints announced on March 25 they have matched the offer sheet from the Chicago Bears for restricted free agent Josh Hill and will retain the veteran tight end.

Hill signed a three-year, $7.5 million deal with the Bears on March 22, per Jeff Dickerson of ESPN. The Saints had five days to match the offer and did so.

The Bears' offer included $3.25 million guaranteed, per Dickerson. Hill also met with the New York Jets, per James Parks of 247Sports.

However, on Monday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reported the three-year deal is worth $7.1 million and can max out a $8.15 million in incentives. On Wednesday, Nick Underhill of the New Orleans Advocate noted Hill's deal has a no-trade clause...

Re: 2016 Saints Free Agency

ESPN.com: Picking the worst-ever free-agent signing for all 32 NFL teams

New Orleans Saints

Wide receiver Albert Connell


Though I considered a few cornerbacks (Dale Carter, Jason David and Brandon Browner), Connell wins out because of the bizarre way his career ended in New Orleans -- and in the NFL, for that matter. The Saints signed him to a five-year, $14 million contract in 2001, with a $2.5 million signing bonus. But he caught only 12 passes in 11 games before he was caught on camera stealing a total of $4,363 from teammate Deuce McAllister's car and locker. Connell claimed it was a prank and that the story was blown out of proportion, and McAllister declined to press charges. Still, it was enough for the team to suspend Connell and eventually release him after one year. -- Mike Triplett
