Re: Nick Fairley in town

Coach Sean Payton said earlier this week that a three-technique defensive tackle remains one of the teamís biggest needs. Fairley fits the bill and would likely slide in next to Jonathan Jenkins on the defensive line if he signs with the Saints.
Talk about a MASSIVE interior line

So then there's this:

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Kinda quietly, the <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/Saints?src=hash">#Saints</a> have had a really nice offseason. Tough cap situation, but they're doing work -- Laurinaitis, Fleener, Fairley...</p>&mdash; Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) <a href="https://twitter.com/RapSheet/status/713394031921905665">March 25, 2016</a></blockquote> <script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

NFL Network just reported the Saints are expected to sign Fairley once the team gets the necessary cap space

Re: Nick Fairley in town

A disappointment as a starter early in his career in Detroit, Fairley has proven the past two seasons that, when healthy, he can be a disruptive player.

He will slide in next to John Jenkins on the Saints' interior.
C'mon DA, just keep him motivated!

Don't like this signing but if he's turned his life around and they want him, the. I'm all for it. I cheer for the team first, players second
