Re: 2016 New Orleans Saints: Roster Outlook

Okay, just wishful thinking, but this is what our defense could look like if we'd sign Mailk Jackson...

The point of this, besides self-gratification, is to demonstrate the flexibility the sample signing would allow us going into Draft 2016...

Our priority in Free Agency 2016 should be a big edge/setting defensive end...


DEFENSE

RDE (2) Cameron Jordan, Lawrence Virgil (ERFA)

NT (2) John Jenkins, Tyeler Davison

LDE (2) (Malik Jackson - Key FA), Bobby Richardson

LEO (2) Davis Tull, Kasim Edebali

WLB (2) Dannell Ellerbe, Mike Mauti

MLB (3) Stephone Anthony, Jeff Luc

SLB (2) Hau'oli Kikaha, Erik Harris

RCB (3) Keenan Lewis, Damian Swann, P.J. Williams

FS (3) Jairus Byrd, Alden Darby

SS (2) Kenny Vaccaro, Vinnie Sunseri

LCB (2) Delvin Breaux, Brian Dixon


Projected Starter

Reserve/Injured

Reserve/Future

Look the saints screwed up with him. He has more than proven that many of us here were right and he should have been used at DT. As a DT he exploded at the end of the year. Shined as a pass rusher and run-defender with the Pats.

But the Pats will never over use him. He is part of a rotation. The saints tried to get way too many snaps out of him. but we have been saying this for years about many of our defensive players.

way too many snaps to stay fresh for an entire game much less 16

Reflection of the team depth and/or coaching.

ok Rob is to blame

Re: 2016 New Orleans Saints: Roster Outlook

Three biggest concerns looking at the Saints Roster:

1) We have no reliable size at wide receiver/tight end.

2) We have no size/depth on the interior of our offensive line.

3) We have a very shaky backstop/center field on defense.

Re: 2016 New Orleans Saints: Roster Outlook

We have no reliable big receiving targets currently on the roster...

For those who thought the offense was fine and Drew is fine...

Get ready...
