I believe another move is on the way with our cap relief

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I think Drews deal freed up about $13 million this year. Possibly sign a Aqib Talib or an offensive lineman? I have a hunch....

Not sure about Talib. 2 or 3 years back maybe but he can't cover quick receivers these days. Could easily turn into another Browner

Yeah, I'm thinking he did it so's to pick up a little more protection.

Re: I believe another move is on the way with our cap relief

I kept waiting for this to happen all off-season so that we could bring in some help on the O-line. I'm not sure what we can get now. They'd have to find a trading partner, and that almost never happens.

The names floating around out there don't figure to cost much. For good reason. Of course, that doesn't mean it wouldn't still be an upgrade...

I just don't think this deal is going to change anything for this year, and few of us really thought he wouldn't re-sign at some point. So to me this is rather anti climactic.

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

Has Denver had enough of Talib's antics?

Re: I believe another move is on the way with our cap relief

Realistically, who are they really going to be able to get at the 11th hour, last-minute, down-to-the-wire like this? The time for fixing last year's problems and making splashy blockbuster trades like this, was months ago. Most teams are game-planning and suiting up for their opponents on Sunday, that's three days away, they're not really looking to tinker with trading away starters on their roster. Face it, other teams are not likely going to just ship off an All Pro guard or defensive pass-rushing MVP, on the eve of the big opening game. Most of what's available will be injury prone, bargain basement, spare-parts players at best.
