If it wasn't us, it would have been some other team. He would have been signed yesterday regardless...

Just happy that Drew has another big athletic receiver who's a better blocker than Graham was.(I think)

6 ft 6 in
247 lb.
40ydx4.52 s
Vertical 37 in
bench press 27 reps


He have the 3 "s" (size, speed & strength) to be a exceptional TE, I researched and found he need to work on blocking. His blocking is not worst than JG

No one's blocking at TE is worse than Graham was.

Well, as I said, we've signed two new tight ends and tendered another...

New Asst Head Coach and TE Coach Dan Campbell will get an opportunity to prove his worth...

Re: Saints Sign Coby Fleener 5 year deal

This is the type of contract i was expecting.

4yr $20 million not 5 yr $36 million

at 7 million the saints could have had some proven commodities. So many other positions were there for the picking OL, DL WR CB LB ect

Coby Fleener is not a proven commodity

So Byrd, Spiller and now Fleener. FA the saints went after and signed at all cost. so far this over paying for FA you really want has not paned out to well.

Pray these guys really step things up and earn their pay checks for a change.

hoping for the best

Throw in PJ Williams and Davis Tull and we have pretty good speed.

We could definitely use some more speed at OLB and DT/DE, but I wouldn't say were slow anymore.
True. I think Kikiha is slow, but everybody else I agree with.

We can't' consistently be almost dead last in every category and continue to ignore the situation. I think it was too much money that will keep us from getting the one or two veterans we need on defense either OLB or interior lineman with push should have been all we were in the market for and drafted at tight end.
