Don't think the kicker position is a pressing need?

Re: 2016 Saints Free Agency

Good read from a few months ago...

Why the New Orleans Saints should absolutely draft a kicker

Re: 2016 Saints Free Agency

Our offense has no trouble getting down to the twenty, problem is punching it in...

Re: 2016 Saints Free Agency

When I look at some of the talent that is acquired in UDRFA, and the advantage they have over a sixth, seventh round pick, the more I believe the NFL draft should be ten rounds...

Re: 2016 Saints Free Agency

I dont see why its not
To be honest if rather be a UDFA than a late 6 round or 7th round pick. At least you can join a team that suits you better as it stands.

Make the draft 10/12 rounds up the roster to 60 players and scrap practise squads.

It's always better if you're an UDRFA after the mid-fifth round...
