Pierce was the single most pursued player for the Saints at the onset of free agency, but signed a big deal with the New York Giants. The Saints are also looking at New Orleans native LB Ronald McKinnon (Arizona)

Guess what? #5 on the MLB list!

Ronald McKinnon UFA Cardinals – After taking over the starting job inside for starter Eric Hill in 1998, McKinnon has been a mainstay and one of their best players. McKinnon is known as a good run stopper but his skills are clearly declining and he’s just average in pass coverage. He still should get some interest in free agency but he likely only got a few years left as a starter.
Defensively, Arizona could use a new middle linebacker. Starter Ronald McKinnon took a step backwards this season. The nine-year veteran totaled just 74 tackles, breaking his five-year streak of recording at least 100 tackles.

I think Gandy and Riley were somebodies a few years ago too. That Conwell was somebody with the Rams. Hey Kelley, can you find all the positions 5th best free agents and make a true potential signing list for the Saints?

you\'re starting to get it tomb. like other teams that are shopping for linebackers might say, hey, that darrin smith was the saints best backer for a few years.

great idea whodi. i\'ll file that for pre-free agency next year. at this rate, it may not be needed though with someone new at the helm. i can see it now... haslett and loomis fired. venturi promoted to vp and gm.
