Wow! Ifo Ekpre-Olumu was arguably the best CB in that draft before the injury. Wonder what the problem is because no way Cleveland should be releasing him if he's fully healthy.

Re: 2016 Saints Free Agency

However, an anterior cruciate ligament injury (ACL) he suffered in December 2014 during practice left many teams no longer interested in him.[13] Ekpre-Olomu later revealed that he had also dislocated his knee.[14] He underwent two major reconstructive surgeries, with his ACL reconstruction being much more extensive than usual.
I'll pass on him

Thanks Mitch, I forgot about the dislocated knee cap as well. That's a tough one. He'd make such a good nickel CB but it must not be looking good at all if even the Browns release you.

Saints' Stephone Anthony: Impact of Laurinaitis signing is unclear
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire
Stephone Anthony started every game last season, but it is uncertain how the signing of James Laurinaitis will effect him, reports Mike Triplett of ESPN.com.

Anthony ranked 20th in the NFL with 112 tackles in 2016, but the New Orleans Saints made it a priority this offseason to bring in an experienced "quarterback of the defense" type like Laurinaitis, who is expected to be the Saints' starting middle linebacker. If Laurinaitis is indeed named the starter, Anthony's fantasy value would potentially take a significant hit, though it is still unclear whether the Saints plan to use use Laurinaitis on an every-down basis or if Anthony could move to the strongside linebacker position. Further, it's also possible that the Saints could switch back to a 3-4 defensive alignment, which would permit both Anthony and Laurinaitis to both start at middle linebacker. Regardless, in the short term, Anthony's once-dependable IDP value is on much shakier footing.

Re: 2016 Saints Free Agency

Some big butted depth To rotate with John Jenkins?

DT Sammie Lee Hill 6’4”, 328 age 29

He stuffed the middle really well and ate up blockers against us pretty darn well. he was almost unmovable and caused a ton of issue in the pass rush. he bull rushed the pocket pretty darn good too.

Jenkins needs to shed a few pounds. like 20 and get down from that god awful weight of 350.

Hagan, where had you read that Jenkins was heavy?!? Last year, during training camp, I read where the team had Jenkins shed weight, bulk to play 3T?!?
