Kruger is signing with the Saints

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I think we really have the makings of something special now on the D Line. Kruger may not be a game changer but he's better than anyone else we've lined up at weak side DE in recent years. With Jordan ...

Re: Kruger is signing with the Saints

I think we really have the makings of something special now on the D Line. Kruger may not be a game changer but he's better than anyone else we've lined up at weak side DE in recent years. With Jordan on the other side and Fairley/Davison getting some push up the middle... This is gonna be one of the most talented D Line's we've had in a while.

Re: Kruger is signing with the Saints

Mr. Kruger had 50+ pressures last year. The next closest guy on the team had 33. Yeah, the sacks were low, but he has a good to potentially great supporting cast on the line here. Cam Jordan is consistently among the leaders in pressures. Now you add another 50 coming from the opposite side, along with improved interior push and suddenly our d-line is looking like the good kind of nasty. Nothing is for sure yet obviously, but on paper this is absolutely an upgrade and potentially a key upgrade. Can't wait to see how this turns out.

Re: Kruger is signing with the Saints

The more i think about it the more I like the pairing with Jordan

Despite the speed rush label the media gives Paul I see him as pretty much the same type of player as Jordan.

Pocket collapsing from both DE is a good thing. DT get and push up the middle the use of a blitzing player should really get a better shot at making an impact. also limiting scrambling inside the pocket.

LB CB and S should love this addition.

There may be a little chemistry with Kruger and Craig Robertson from their playing days together in Cleveland.

Probably waiting until the next cuts free up space, or some restructures are finalized.

He's agreed to a deal, its just up to Loomis to fit him in and for the league to approve, IMHO.
