The Eagles lost Cedric Thorton to the Dallas Cowboys, so they’re looking at add depth to the defensive line.

Nick Fairley is receiving another chance in the NFL. There are only so many of those that go around, especially since there are players coming out of college every season. Fairley is hoping that the New Orleans Saints will be his final stop in the National Football League.

I'm not worried about him smoking weed. You can find a plethora of weed in any major city the NFL has to offer. It wouldn't be any worse here.

Yeah, not to be a Saints-basher, but that ain't sayin' much, #shrug. If he's corrected some of his deficiencies, he's a great addition along with some of the other defensive FA signings. Which leads me to wonder why he was one & done with the Rams. The guy has all the potential in the world & I remember games where he just dominated, they're just few and far in-between. I'm just saying be cautious, the guy has not lived up to the status of a first round draft pick, even in two of his best years, .

I don't mind these guys smoking weed either in that there's nothing I can do about it, and it's not even an NFL city issue, #shrug. It's when they're derelict enough to get caught in consecutive weeks doing it, #shrug. You just gotta' wonder sometimes how bright some of these guys are and be a little concerned with what they'll be bringing to your team, .

You're right. That definitely isn't saying much. I saw Cam Jordan tweet out he wants a DT in the 1st round. We've got to get that spot sured up soon.

And yeah, I don't know how some of them get caught so often. I know a large number of the league does it and never gets caught it.

Strange off-season.
I didn't really want Laurinaitus all that much, but I really want Fairley.

Brees is under contract and has publicly declared he wants to restructure an extension.

I'm sorry but I am calling out your ass here.

The fact it's taken so long ...

... shows that it does not need to be finalized yet.

if he cannot decide he wants to play here, then just get lost.

If you can't decide to be a loyal fan either carry your ass to Atlanta or take a xanax.

We don't need all this bribing and courting for him to sign.

Um, where in the hell is the bribing and courting? Are you even capable of having a clue? Honestly. Sheesh!

Someone hold me back.

Every post you make you ***** and moan about what someone says. How about you stop being a bully on this site. Because someone says something does not mean you have to comment. Sometimes it's better to keep things to yourself. Everyone is their own person and has their own thoughts on the process. And unless you work in the top offices of the Saints you have no clue either.
