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...

Re: 2016 Saints Free Agency

Wait, no UDFA corner backs ? Kind of surprised we didn't select one in last week's draft ...especially after the Josh Norman sweepstakes.

My guess is that Josh Norman >>>>> any UDFA CB we could sign?

This guy is legit NFL starter. Maybe we can give them a player not a future pick. What do they need? I would give them Spiller for Leary. They have Elliot so Spiller could be tempting as 3rd down back.

They could use some defensive help... But we're not exactly in a position to deal away defensive players. The only starter I could see us parting with is John Jenkins because he's entering a contract year and I think Tyeler Davison could develop into that role. But who knows if the Cowboys would have any interest.
