Kruger set to visit Saints

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Naw I'm not sold granted he's only one year removed from a 11 sack season but I rather rock out with Tapp Gwacham & Edebali who actually had more sacks than him this past year it wasn't a scheme thing ...

How much more of a difference could he really make with us? maybe if he were going to the Seahawks cool but Id pass

Re: Kruger set to visit Saints

The Browns have MAYBE ONE proven pass rusher , so they aren't in a position to be letting them walk out the door unless they felt he isn't worth the investment anymore with production...

Re: Kruger set to visit Saints

I rather See what Gwacham can do with some significant snaps under his belt....after re-watching the Steelers game the potential is there you have to remember he's a WR turned DE/LB still learning the nuances of the position...I say rotate 59&91 and use the money on the O-line...but I guess

Re: Kruger set to visit Saints

We have projects and long shots littering our roster on the defensive line and linebacker units. But I'd rather kick the proverbial tires on Kruger, than to have this McCain person. I get that they apparently think he has some untapped potential, but he has almost literally done nothing. Again, with as many projects as are already under development, I think at least bringing Kruger in and giving him a shot couldn't hurt. We need more immediate experience/production now to bridge the gap until hopefully guys like Edebali, Gwacham, Onyemata and now McCain are fully ready.

If he were old, I wouldn't say that. I'm not interested in bringing in the Dwight Freeney's of the world. Kruger should have something left in the tank.

If I had a nickel for every time I heard that, the NFL would fine and suspend me.

Oh he does 30-35 tackles and 3-4 sacks we can get that from our guys already is my point....whats the point in bringing in someone who is going to be less than or equal to your current players at that position?....he isn't giving us 8-10 sacks plus pressures guaranteed

He was cut because of the players behind him potential and the lack of production on his part...If he would've gotten another 11 sack season this year he would not have been cut
