No dead money. And then you take a look at Saints players contacts, cuts, acquisitions in free agency (not specifically this year)... lol
The trend over the past few years has been scary. targeting one player and paying a huge salary to get him is just not a good practice so far. That is not taking into account the players history obviously. dead horse to most around here I know.

With all the signings this year I would have preferred

Osemle Kelechi
or
Damon Harrison

one and done

Re: 2016 Saints Free Agency

My biggest b*tch is the strategy long-scope view in identifying free agents and draft candidates for the Saints...

Last season, we should have signed LG Clint Boling, Cincinnati Bengals and taken CB Marcus Peters in the draft; instead we draft Andrus Peat who can't wrestle a OT spot and have released Brandon Browner with dead money; right now, we could have an offensive line of LT Terron Armstead, LG Clint Boling, OC Max Unger, RG Tim Lelito and RT Zach Strief and be drafting for depth on the line...

This season, we should have signed NT Damon Harrison, New York Jets (now signed with G'nats), he's proven in the league and would have shored up the middle; and then we should be looking to draft other positions, instead we're probably going to spend a first round pick on a two-down linemen at best - WTF?!?

Will Nick Foles be a member of the Rams in 2016? | ProFootballTalk

If the Rams cut Nick Foles loose, hmm I could see another alum from Westlake High School (near Austin, TX) in the black and gold...

R1 CB Marcus Peters - I had my issues and assumed the interview tanked
R2 OG La'el Collins - never bought into the whole thing. no history of troubles

how different things would be.

He was playing for Dallas...

In Payton's system, it'd be a whole other game...

Will, I saw a lot of LC up here in a Death star nation & dude had 11 or so solid rookie starts. A beast, mauler & played angry most of the time.

Dallas got a gift for years to come unfortunately.

Footwork - check
Change of direction - check
Hands speed - check

Upgrade in pass protection. Love the signing. Healthy or not, Ellerbe got his work cut out for him this season.

Solid post Mitch .

Patriots release Dominique Easley in stunning move

While injuries have been an issue for Easley, it's hard not to wonder if there is more to the story here. Patriots coach Bill Belichick called Easley an "explosive player that is very disruptive" before last season. Easley only played 275 snaps last year, but he looked like one of the team's best defensive players when healthy. To put it in perspective: ProFootball Focus ranked him as the No. 12 defensive tackle in the league despite the limited playing time.

Now here is a prove you can stay healthy one year deal?
