Re: 2016 Saints Free Agency

We can save about 20 million without even the restructure of Drew. We've always found a way in the past and they will find a way next year.

Re: 2016 Saints Free Agency

I'm leery of Jason Pierre Paul with his back surgery in 2013 and then the firework injury in July; but Von Miller would automatically put our defense on the map again

I seriously doubt we can afford him though

Re: 2016 Saints Free Agency

JP's Free Agent Shopping List:

NT Damon Harrison
OG Ryan Wendell
TE Rob Housler
LB Danny Trevathan or LB Brandon Marshall*
CB Tracy Porter or CB Morris Claiborne
K Nick Novak
P Shane Lechler

*Restricted

I'd resign these free agents:

QB Matt Flynn
RB Kendall Hunter
RB Tim Hightower
TE Ben Watson
TE Michael Hoomanawanui
CB Kyle Wilson
FS Raphael Bush

I'd Release the following for Cap Savings:

CB Brandon Browner
G Jahri Evans
OT Zach Strief
P Thomas Morstead

Mo C has been a HUGE disappointment up here in Death Star nation. Coming out of the draft, I truly thought he would be a difference maker. If he isn't on the field, he has been in the tub.

Not sure if this guy can stay healthy either .

Re: 2016 Saints Free Agency

I dont get releasing Strief for cap purposes. It saves 1.3ml. Youll never get as good back up for that money. My guess is he'd take a paycut for one more go round

Do you think Dennis Allen and Aaron Glenn could turn things aroung for him?!?

Sign him to a team cap friendly contract...

He gets things turned around under the aforementioned tutelage...

That was my thinking at least by his mention in my post...
