Dat Trade

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Why would you think this? He has never played anything but MLB his whole career (I think, but I could be wrong, again). He played OLB at ND before being forced to play MLB his senior season due to injuries ...

He played OLB at ND before being forced to play MLB his senior season due to injuries that put Mike Goolsby on the sidelines for most (maybe all?) of the season. So he has played both OLB and MLB.

And if this is indeed true (I have yet to see it on ESPN, KFFL or anywhere else), I will be one happy guy. I have thought Dat is one of the more under-rated LB\'s for a few years now. So to get him and a 2nd round pick, would be great.

Interesting raGe I did not know that about Watson in college... thanks for the info. Getting a 2nd rounder was expected and getting Dat also is just icing on the cake. Let\'s hope they officially announce something soon though. We should still draft a linebacker, but now it\'s not as important and we can address our higher draft picks on other positions.

yeah... not hearing anything... I haven\'t been able to confirm it thru some people from my end yet either. Starting to smell like a hoax.

Yea, thats what im beginning to think, too good to be true. But if it is, is there a certain time it will be announced??? is the 3p.m. deadline still a factor to where if something isnt werkd out by then, do we still have to pay the cap hit???? theres 17 minutes to 3, but i have a feeling something is already worked out completely if there is any truth to this rumor. If anyone hears anything, please throw it in here and quit leaving everyone in suspense..... o1higuy, im not sure if youve made my day better or worse.....

is this all really happening????

It was a message board post that I saw earlier today. I have high hopes that its true. I would think they would say there is some kind of progress going on and I am seeing nothing as well. That scares me. I know Saturday it was all over ESPN News channel about the two teams talking. I am seeing nothing though. Accept other boards postings. Oh well. We\'ll see.

I\'m reading some different info on him. the only season he played OLB was as a freshman reserve

From the official site:
COLLEGE CAREER - A three-year starter at inside linebacker for Notre Dame, where he was a finalist in 2002 and a semi-finalist in 2003 for the Butkus Award, annually given to the nation\'s top linebacker. He started his final 32 games and saw action in 43 contests in his career. Watson was an extremely productive player, finishing with 294 tackles (163 solo), 8.5 sacks for minus-62 yards, a fumble recovery, a forced fumble, eight passes defensed and seven interceptions for 202 yards in returns, including two touchdowns.



College

2003 - Third-team All-American choice and semifinalist for Butkus Award...Also a member of the American Football Coaches Association Good Works Team, becoming only the second Notre Dame player to earn the accolade...Opened all 11 games at inside linebacker, leading the team for the second-straight year with 117 tackles (69 solo) and adding 3.5 sacks and 15 stops for a loss...Also had two interceptions for 48 yards in returns...Had double-digit tackle totals in nine games...Had a season-high 14 tackles vs. Southern California...Posted 12 tackles, 1.5 sacks, an interception and four tackles behind the line of scrimmage vs. BYU...In finale vs. Syracuse, Watson recorded 10 tackles and an interception return for 48 yards.

2002 - All-American first-team choice by ESPN, The Sporting News and the Associated Press...One of three finalists for the Butkus Award...Started 10 games, missing two with a viral infection and the Gator Bowl with a right knee sprain...Still led the team with 90 tackles (51 solo), including three sacks...Also had 10 stops behind the line of scrimmage, four passes defensed and four interceptions for 123 yards in returns, including a 34-yard touchdown vs. Stanford.

Deadline doesn\'t matter... Howard signed the francise tender on Monday. If he didn\'t then he could become an FA and Saints could get 2 first rounders for him whomever signed him. Since he signed the tender as well the Saints can\'t work on a long term contract with him until July 15th. He also becomes a cap hit, unless traded
