Free agency... You'll be disappointed if?

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; For me... if we don't get some front 7 help before the draft with at least a few solid 2nd tier guys, I'll be very disappointed. DE, DT and LB. I'm confident we sign a few, but if we don't......

I thought Sean said a few months ago that "pass rush" would be the point of emphasis in FA this off season?

There must be someone they really like in the upcoming draft.

Really wanted to see an upgrade with youth at Left Defensive End and...

wanted to see a standout like Damon Harrison at Nose Tackle...

So on the first two, I'm pretty bummed we're waiting for the draft - no matter how deep it is...

Also, wanted to see us sign an experienced guard with youth...

Guess, I'm more disappointed with what has transpired and our inability to compete for free agents because we're having to atone for very poor contract, salary cap mgmt...

I'm not disappointed;

I understood that we were strapped against the cap again this year and figured we wouldn't do much in free agency.

I was pleasantly surprised with the Fleener signing. From what I understand this is a not so good offensive talent draft, so go for a TE in free agency and build the defense through the draft.

We must do something to fix the most important part of the team, o line and d line. These must be addressed at least somewhat in free agency, we will not be able to rely solely on the draft.

If we could structure a contract like we structured Fleener's,

..then we definitely could and should have done it for a nose tackle like Harrison...

To make the defensive line a top seven unit, you have to invest a little...
