How much will he cost?

Should he sign, it'll be for more than Cam Jordan, how with that sit?

And is he clean? He did have an alleged synthetic marijuana incident...

Don't really see any other edge defender unless we move back to a 3-4?

And we have a 3-4 edge defender returning from injured reserve in Kikaha...
Don't forget that Kikaha excelled as a 4-3 DE at Washington before they converted to a 3-4 his senior year. And Payton had been saying he was looking forward to Kikaha's move to DE before his preseason injury.

Re: 2017 Free Agency thread anyone?

My selections for the...

Saints' Top Ten Free Agent Targets

1. RG Kevin Zeitler, 27

2. LG Andrew Norwell, 25

3. DE Chandler Jones, 27

4. CB A.J. Bouye, 26

5. CB Logan Ryan, 26

6. WR Willie Snead, 24

7. CB Sterling Moore, 26

8. DT Nick Fairley, 28

9. FB John Kuhn, 34

10. LB Kiko Alonso, 27

Disclaimer: No, don't expect to sign all from the list, but three or four of the top 6 would have me doing a Farmer Fran delight...

Worry that Hau'oli Kikaha doesn't have the sand in his pants (bulk) to anchor the edge in a 4-3 front and that's why he was getting injured...

Guess we'll see what's happening...

I wouldn't be surprised if Kikaha and/or Anthony get moved this offseason...

C. Campbell
L. Ryan
K. Zeitler

My top 3 targets I think the Saints should grab.

Address DE and ILB in the draft.

You have Guard at the top of your list. This means we can be friends.

Re: 2017 Free Agency thread anyone?

Speaking of GUARDS - per Walter football report:

6. Andrew Norwell, G, Panthers. Age: 25
Carolina's offensive line was a mess this past season, but the lone bright spot throughout the entire year was Andrew Norwell. The 25-year-old was outstanding in both pass protection and run blocking, and given that he's so young, he could even be better in 2017 and 2018.

Outstanding? Solid works for me. What amazes me about him is how far he has come since college. Looking for a player with desire and drive to get better it would be hard to find any one that has worked harder. A huge plus in my book.

Tell you another positive for signing him - Carolina then wouldn't have 'em...
