I think we have much bigger needs than G to go after. Depending on the size of the contract I don\'t think I\'ll be too upset if we sign him. The middle of the line got better late in the season but early on it was awful. Some stability and veteran leadership couldn\'t hurt.

btw, scout.com has him as the 5th ranked G available.

Maybe I am the only one who saw this:

Mayberry struggles and has trouble with quick defensive tackles. Limited mobility is becoming increasingly evident as Mayberry has difficulties changing direction and getting out on the sweep or screen passes
That does not mean it is getting better, and he is an older player. He is Wayne Gandy on the inside of the line. Dumb move.
31 is not old for an offensive guard. And he made the probowl in 2002 and was an alternate last year. I wouldn\'t go believing every single thing you hear about a player on the net. I betcha I can go find an article that says just the opposite about Mayberry. How did he make the probowl for 2 years?

with the dismal attempts at screens last year they may be thinking he won\'t have any need to worry about doing that. age 32 and sign for 3-4 years not prudent? c\'mon, he was all-pro once three years ago. also he has a frozen treats shop called \"J Berries\" in his offseason home of Austin, TX. The shop serves water ice, gelatis and smoothies. Mayberry also sponsors scholarships to local high school students through the shop.

Cause his QB is D. McNabb. Did you see him run around for 14 seconds against the Cowboys and still make a play? If he comes here, his QB will be and we don\'t need another slow immobile guy on the line. Plus,

Maybe we can go after the 5th rated guy at every position we don\'t need immediate help for. Should improve our team exponentially.

Come on dude. I know you\'re depressed \'cause we haven\'t signed some of the players that you want. But, Mayberry did not make the probowl because of McNabb. If it worked that way, every player on Mike Vick\'s offensive line would be in the probowl.

The guys is a definate upgrade over Jacox who struggled last year.

whodi, you\'re certain he\'s not better than Jacox? That\'s the real question.

Obviously, we wouldn\'t replace every position with the 5th ranked player available and expect to get better. That\'s almost too absurd a statement to be worth a retort. Even though G isn\'t a \"need\", if it can be improved there\'s nothing wrong with looking there.

We don\'t need a guard and Jacox almost made it to the Probowl 2 years ago when Fotenot was still here. He had one off year. We need to put out money for a tackle, not a guard. Wahle is about to be off the market and others are getting signed fast. Typical Saints offseason if you ask me. Go sign an average free agent and hype him up as the steal of the offseason.

It\'s also very easy to develop guards compared to tackles. We can draft anyone btw round 5-7 and they could be starters. Look at all these top notch guards in the league, lots of them are lower round picks. We still have Stinchcomb on the bench also.

Everyone is entitled to be stupid, but some abuse the privilege.

All little common sense goes a long way.

they backed off on fred miller cuz he wanted too much money (i wasn\'t disappointed). he was ranked #21 on pasquerelli\'s top 32 ufa list. mayberry (not on the list) might be closer to the loomis budget plan. if i was betting i would say he\'ll be too spendy for them too.

Right. If Stinchy can\'t even play RT yet, he\'ll never play LT. Nice move guys.

In the Q&A chat, the name Stockar McDougle (Lions) was heard as a possible RT. I guess only time will tell.
