Nick Fairley - SIGNED

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; This signing is fine for the money and length. I just don't view this as THE answer at DT. Still hoping to get a real difference maker there in the draft....

So many great defensive players who were wasted during all those years of futility.. to have just a couple of them right now.

He's got a year to prove himself or will move on.

If he misses the tackle, his former teammate Laurinitis will be right there to back him up

Re: Nick Fairley - SIGNED

He hasn't really had a season where he lit up the stat board... Hopefully he and Jenkins can be disruptive enough to free up Jordan and whoever the other DE might be... Just push the pocket back so the QB can't step up into it

Only has one year of production

Not that he is not capable but he went from nothing to the considered the consensus top defensive tackle. 13th pick in the draft and got a boat load of money. It went to his head. His character and work habits were in question

Why take the chance?
he can be a dangerous, gap-shooting defensive tackle who after the past few years may have gotten the humble pie he deserves. It appears his head is screwed on straighter than it has been since getting to the NFL. He is out to prove his critics wrong and more importantly out to prove something to himself. we are all hope.

Go for it.

now we need some more beef

Source: Nick Fairley’s 3-year deal with Saints voids after first season

Nick Fairley's contract will limit 2016 salary cap hit, newspaper reports | NOLA.com

The Saints' official announcement said Fairley signed a one-year deal, but the actual contract is for three years, the Boston Globe reported. However, the final two years of the contract void automatically if Fairley is still on the roster in February.


The maneuver allows the Saints to spread Fairley's $2.235 million signing bonus over three years, instead of just one, limiting the deal's impact on the 2016 salary cap.


In practice, Fairley signed a one-year, $3 million deal, but it will count only $1.51 million against the 2016 salary cap.
Loomis at it again
