I don't know how to refer poat from my phone but there were people saying that he was going to be a big redzone threat...when I get on my laptop I'll try to post them. Either way I don't believe he is the answer and being that we might lose Watson we need to find a reliable target.

That's a lot different than saying he's the next Jimmy Graham

there were many (me too) that thought this offense was so plug and play that even Hill could come in and pull off 45-50 catches, close to a 1000 yards and about 5-7 TDs due to his size and Brees

We just released a player who is older. Why would we sign one that is even older?

Re: Saints will look to add tight ends in free agency, draft

The two I really like in the draft are are polar opposites

R2 - Hunter Henry - standup Jimmy TE/WR split
R3 - Nick Vannett - more the traditional Ben Watson TE

The rest do little to thrill me and I see way to many other players of value that fill team needs to honestly take any of them.

The all Drew draft

R1 - WR Laquon Treadwell
R2 - TE Hunter Henry
R3 - TE Nick Vannett
R4 - OG Connor McGovern
R5 - WR Geronimo Allison
R7 - K Ka'imi Fairbairn

I can just hear the board now. but would it really be that bad?

Green would look good in black and gold

Lol on the "all Drew draft". Not a lot of huge names coming out of college for TE's but Hunter is head and shoulders the best one out there.

Side note: I'm all in on drafting a kicker.

I would like to see what Jack Tabb can do when healthy. I can still see us taking a flyer on a player in the 5th round and lower. I not sold on Hill, didn't show me anything last season.
