2016 Saints Free Agency

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I did see someone suggest signing Ladarius Green. Quite interesting imo. All depends on price obviously but he could offer a dynamic option similar to Graham. We will need to sign a couple or resign some TEs...

Vinny Curry - DE Philly (only 27)

JPP - Giants (Incentive driven contract) ... this guy would greatly improve our bloodless pass rush.

Thoughts?

I wouldn't see the Saints going after JPP, they dumped a knuckle head at DE last offseason, why bring on another one

I totally get what you are saying but JPP is no Junior Gallette. I'd love to be a fly on the wall if his (JPP) name is brought up in closed meetings on possible FA's. Do you turn your head away from a serious talent for a mistake made on the 4th of July?

A little different from that fool swinging a belt & bad mouthing coaches/organization .

Edit: Any one have thoughts/impressions on Vinny Curry?

Damon Harrison - New York Jets - 2016 Player Profile - Rotoworld.com

The Jets want to re-sign impending free agent NT Damon Harrison.
"Snacks" quietly had a monster season, playing 577 snaps and grading out as Pro Football Focus' No. 6 overall defensive tackle as he started all 16 games. It's obvious why the Jets want to keep him, but with the Jets set to give Muhammad Wilkerson franchise tag money for what's soon to be an extremely pricey defensive line, Harrison could slip through the cracks.

Re: 2016 Saints Free Agency

Quarterbacks have all the leverage in the NFL when it comes to contract negotiations. But Sam Bradford's reported demands from the Eagles were a bit out of whack with the current market.

Appearing on NFL Insiders Wednesday, ESPN's Jim Trotter reported, via The Big Lead, that Bradford wanted a whopper from Philly in his most recent contract chatter, asking for $25 million a year when discussing a contract with Chip Kelly.

"One of the reasons Chip didn't try and extend Sam right away, I'm told, is Tom Condon, Bradford's agent, came in asking for $25 million a year," Trotter said.

Tom Condon = Cap Killer

Yes you do, because of his hands. We don't need any more of these risks.

*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
I just learned Browner doesn't save us any money, he has a dead money cap hit of 5.5(around that).

I seriously doubt we can afford him though
We're not going to get him.
