He wants to play. He's not happy just sitting on his ass and taking money. This is why it irks me when people start the "give back all the money" bull****.
It doesn't irk me that bad.

i could be wrong, but I think people are saying that because he threw a fit about wanting more of it guaranteed and then came out and got hurt that season.

I am not agreeing or disagreeing with their or your perspective, just analyzing the idea behind the comment

When Westbank showed his @$$ last season during the draft, whining about not getting his guaranteed money, I felt something was amiss then...

Anytime a player goes off like that, and is uncharacteristic for that person, it should have given the front office pause to step up and guarantee money...

What good would his giving money back to Tom Benson do for the Saints? The contract is in place and the cap hit is a given. You ask why can't they just re-do the contract? Because the league has to approve every contract and there is no way that would fly.

Re: Joint Practice with Patriots

I often wonder if the attempt to sign Josh Norman this off season means that the Saints FO knew about Lewis injury for quite some time, no?

Thoughts?

He's made spectacular plays nearly every day. So far he's our 2nd best CB in camp

I think we have very capable debt behind him too. Would like to see a vet but we are light years away from last year. I think Swann is done though. Too bad coz he has heart.

Not trying to be contentious, but why?
Previous head injuries?
Or did I miss something lately?

Re: Joint Practice with Patriots

CB now looks like a position of depth (yeah, its just preseason)

If early reports are right, Breaux, Williams, Swann, Harris, Crawley will still be one of the best CB groups we've had in like forever.
