I think we can put to rest whether or not we should have cut Evans considering even a team with an atrocious O-Line has let him go.

Yeah, Lelito was grading better so get rid of Lelito for Evans...

Re: 2016 Saints Free Agency

Could it be the Saints are trading with the Patriots straight up?

Re: 2016 Saints Free Agency

I wonder if Wisniewski would play guard?

Patriots Release Josh Kline
September 7th, 2016 at 7:56am CST

It has been a weird 24 hours for Josh Kline. On Tuesday, he was reportedly traded to the Eagles, only to have Philadelphia shop him immediately after acquiring him. Then, he was removed from the trade, but not for a physical issue. This morning, the Patriots released him, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com (on Twitter). Josh Kline (vertical)

Kline, 26, joined the Patriots in 2013 as an undrafted free agent out of Kent State. After getting four starts in his first two seasons, Kline became a full-time starter last year. In November, the Pats extended the guard through the 2017 season. The deal carried a base value of $3.3MM with a ceiling of $4.9MM. For one reason or another, neither the Patriots nor the Eagles were interested in paying that out.

Last year, the advanced metrics at Pro Football Focus ranked Kline No. 37 among all guards in the NFL out of 81 qualified players. PFF gave Kline a better grade for his run blocking ability (78.5) than his pass blocking (67.9), resulting in a 73.6 overall score. In 2015, PFF considered him roughly even in both areas.
Wonder if we take a look?

Re: 2016 Saints Free Agency


There's no upgrade if we bring in Kline. I think we're rolling with Peat and Lelito for better or worse.
