Saints Sign Coby Fleener 5 year deal

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I ain't mad at it. Brees will make him into a Pro Bowler. I think Chris Long and James Laurinaitis will be our next moves...although IDK how much I would want either one....

Re: Saints Sign Coby Fleener 5 year deal

Hmm WalterFootball hates it... Hope we prove him wrong!

Saints sign TE Coby Fleener (5 years, $36 million): KIELBASA SLIPS THROUGH THE FINGERS MILLEN Grade
I wonder how it feels to be a Colts fan right now. On one hand, they must be very depressed that they still have the incompetent Ryan Grigson running things. On the other hand, they have to be cracking up upon seeing the numbers Coby Fleener received from the Saints.

This signing is horrible. Aside from perhaps Vernon Davis, no tight end drops more passes than Coby Fleener. I'm sure he'll post some great numbers with Drew Brees throwing the ball to him, but he'll absolutely kill his new team with some untimely drops. Then again, maybe he won't be a fantasy monster, given that he couldn't produce with Andrew Luck, even when Dwayne Allen was out of the lineup with his injury issues.

This is an easy Millen. I don't understand what the Saints saw in him to make them believe that he's worth more than $7 million per year. Fleener, an average starter at best, would've been overpaid had he gotten half as much.

"When you get into one of these groups, there's only a couple of ways you can get out. One, is death; the other, is mental institutions."

Re: Saints Sign Coby Fleener 5 year deal

This is ridiculous. How on earth can you guys be happy with throwing 36 million dollars on a freaking TE? First off if there is any significant type of signing bonus then we have not learned from our last rash signings which has us in this cap strapped situation to begin with. Secondly Fleener is not a great TE. Unreal.

Re: Saints Sign Coby Fleener 5 year deal

I absolutely love this move. Fleener has the size to become Jimmy Graham version two with better blocking skills and less injury prone. He is a very intelligent player and will quickly become a favorite of Brees.

I will miss Ben Watson. He was a very solid player and by far a better person. I wish him nothing but the best, but this is a huge upgrade.

He had 2 more TD's in 2014 than Watson had with his best season last year. Oh and that's with being thrown 20 less passes, just sayin'
