Yes, and Yes...

It's my suspicion that we're really gonna be a 4-3 Under like what the Ravens and S'hawks run...

...But we're not calling it that...

Yep, I just read a few things about him and I think thats exactly a good fit for him.

He has two former team mates here in Robertson and Ellerbe so maybe they can lure him to sign.

I certainly couldn't hurt.

Now lets start eyeballing some more OG's please.

You have to wonder how dysfunctional the Browns are to let both Kruger (a 10+ sack/season) and Robertson geaux?!? And they look blazingly fast to what we've had...

The Saints Draft Management and Laissez-faire practice of guaranteeing Free Agent Deals drives me bananas, but it looks like the market is falling right for them this year, almost keeping them from their madness (the Fleener contract not withstanding)...

I don't know; he was a pretty good 4-3 end when in college

As a sophomore in 2008, he was a first-team All-Mountain West defensive lineman. Sports Illustrated and College Football News named him honorable mention All-American. He played and started in all 13 games at right end. He led Utah and ranked second in the conference in tackles for loss (16.5) and was third in the league in sacks (7.5). He had seven pass breakups, which ranked second on the team, as well as two forced fumbles. His 61 total tackles ranked fifth on the team. He had four sacks (all solo) against Utah State that tied the school record and was the best single-game total in the country. His five TFL in that same game was the second-best mark in school history. He intercepted a pass against BYU and returned it 30 yards.

He's ok, but Freddy Kruger always had the edge on him.

Re: Kruger set to visit Saints

Feel like this move would be a waste of money , I mean he got released by the browns rather rock out with what we have vs paying a washed OLB to do the same

Nah it must've been a scheme issue or something with the Browns. He's way better than anybody we currently have not named Cameron Jordan.

The Browns didnt need to re-sign Robertson because they have want to build with Kirksey and their young backers but Kruger on the other hand feel is done maybe 2-3 years ago I wouldve liked the move but now I get a sense of desperation
