Another reason why we suck we are always keeping these undrafted free agents. This team values the udfa more than draft picks not saying they are bad players at all but there is reasons why the went undrafted.

I have no issue with UDFA making the team. The only stone you can throw at that is the front office are obviously not getting the mid to late round draft picks right. But for me its take the player that performs.

Nick Toon or Willie Snead
Pierre Thomas better than the drafted player they replaced

Re: Saints keep four undrafted free agents on 53 man roster

I don't really care that they keep a udfa it's fine but we seem to care more about them than finding a draft pick. If they can play fine no problem. How many as on the roster do we have now 1/3 1/2 idk but it's alot. Maybe a collation to us being as bad as we are.


And Asylumquido I really don't care what you think cause I'm still waiting for one thing you say to come true

I was just going to say I don't mind it either, especially when they can play. It is never ad bad thing, but I would say that we didn't look too good in preseason or the last two years. Our line looks terrible so we should be trying hard to upgrade it. If our oline play improved to decent it could change the entire season.

Re: Saints keep four undrafted free agents on 53 man roster

I was listening to Bill Polian, the Pro Football Hall of Fame GM, a couple of days ago, and he was talking about fans over-expectations of draft picks. He was saying that if you can get four draft choices in a draft that can eventually become starters you were lucky and he also talked about UFDA's saying that there are more players good enough to make teams every year that you can pick up without having to do so in the draft. He added that anything picked past the 4th round was a bonus if they were able to make the squad.

I'm having that feeling again.
