Re: Jahri Evans released

This is a start. 7 million in savings gives us 2 solid starters. Resign Tim Lelito and Senio Kelemete and let them fight it out for RG. Then, sign JR Sweezy to play left guard. You could get all 3 guards for under the 7 million.


*Edit* Nevermind, just saw after the releasing of these 3 we only have $1,838,494 in cap room.

Ellerbe (5.9 million freed up) and Colston (3.2 million freed up) should be gone next. Morestead (3.25 million) may also be a cap casuality.

Jahri is on our line of fame. He's been a great Saint. We will miss you and look for you when we honor you down the road.

At least we have that.

Unless you are gonna start punting for the Saints, Morstead isn't going anywhere.

This is a very good year for punters and kickers in the draft so taking recent injuries into account it is very possible.

Then again looking at the OG situation as it stands booming punts may be more important than ever.

A punter has never been worth 4.6 million a year. Crap, give me a solid UFA for 1 million and save me the 2.2 million. We are hurting to bad to spend 4.6 million on a punter. Not sure if your Morstead or just trolling.

Really wish we had signed Cincinnati's LG Chris Boling last season instead of Brandon Browner...

We would have had a real, special offensive line going into this past (2015) season...

Re: Jahri Evans released

Folks,

Take off the fan hat and put on your GM hat for a second ... the savings it would reap wouldn't even pay for a below average tackle, or a serviceable starter. Even as a backup, there is value in Strief.

I'd be very surprised if he is cut.

I am a female and I'm not trolling anyone. He may take a paycut but like I said before unless you are going to punt for the Saints, Morstead isn't going anywhere.

Wait, where is your husband! There is no punter in the history of the NFL worth almost 5 million a year.
