Agreed. Ben is a special man and he will always be a favorite of mine in or out of football. I was thrilled when we signed him and still remember the questioning of the move by several around here. If anyone can handle this adversity it is him.

Very unfortunate to a great player and better human being.

Truly a good guy & I wish him a healthy, speedy return.

Why the heck haven't we tried to sign Louis Vasquez? Is there some injury issue I don't know about?

From what I've read the knee is healthy however Vasquez has been rather disappointing in zone blocking scheme (what Payton runs).

Kind of wished we had taken a flyer on Matt Slauson after the Bears cut him. A proven vet and QUALITY pass blocker. Meanwhile we have two back up guards and a tackle who never played guard in college. If you look at JP's depth chart, there are a few UDFA that some here thought would be our savings grace. At this level of football, potential disaster waiting to happen.

I don't understand this either. He's been mentioned on this board for months. Even if he came in as a 1 year stop-gap he would be an upgrade.
There really has been no news on him anywhere

I think they were getting away from the zone blocking scheme this year with the new line coach...(Dan Roushar)

Re: 2016 Saints Free Agency

The VIKINGS are over stocked @ the OL. Keep an eye on their cuts.
NY (Giants) are pretty weak upfront so there will be competition for any average to good lineman that becomes available.

Re: 2016 Saints Free Agency

It's time to call the Eagles and see if G/T Matt Tobin is available...

C'mon Ireland, time to start beating the desk...
