Crawley, Landon Turner, Devante Harris and Tommylee Lewis
I think Lewis did just enough to make the team, with that said he needs to concentrate on catching the ball better with his hands and extending his arms, he kind of short arms it. Grayson thew very catchable balls to him in the Ravens game. I really like Harris reminds me of a poor mans Mike McKenzey. Jurys out on Turner so far. Crawley made plays and didn't make plays, he has good hands I give him that but needs to improve alot on angles and wrapping up when he tackles, he kind of scares the he!! out of me because I see big plays being made on him. And speaking of Grayson I don't think he played to bad at all during preseason our WR dropped alot of balls he threw and our O-line and run game didn't help a developing QB at all. I like this kid.

The UDFA would have been "Draft Choice" if the draft went 17 rounds like it did at one time.

I'm glad that Turner has made the team(at least for now). Hopefully, we cut bait with both Kelemete and Lelito if any new Olinemen are signed off the waiver wire.

Kruger, Lauarinaitis, and Fairley are BIG signings for the defense.

Are you mental?? We almost do better with our Undrafted free agents than we do on the players we draft.

Reports they are sitting down with Brees in the extension too.
4 years 100ml is what Brees is after. The guaranteed money is kep there. Anymore than 50-60ml is too much imo. That covers 2 probably 3 years for him if they back load it.
