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.
Brees must be smiling from ear to ear, can't wait to see them carve teams up

Not sure how I feel about this signing. The Colts didn't seem to concerned about his leaving. Guy looks the part but production not great for the amount of money we gave him?

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.
Just checked the stats on this website about dropped passes Dropped Passes: 2015 NFL Season

According to this, from 54 targets, Coby Dropped a WHOLE 3 passes.

Calvin Johnson, Ben Watson and countless others dropped way more so I'm not worried at the minute.

I haven't seen a lot of him so can't say if we overpaid or not.

I feel like that type of money could have been spent on making the OL better or helping the defense. Hopefully he pays off but just seems to be a bit rich for a TE....

Hard to tell until we see how it's structured...

They must see Jimmy Graham in him... shored him up for 5 years. I am ok with that. Get guys you know are going to be around 3-5 years. This one and done sucks.
