He does have a season now in the system and it would give some continuity for the defensive line...

And I'm not saying we don't spend a high draft pick and/or make a run at one of the two top defensive ends in FA...

You really have to have three good defensive ends rotating to be a championship-caliber roster and w/o Kruger we have one (Jordan)...
Which begs the question how many roster spots are we going to spend on edge rusher this year?

We will most likely try to bring in a top tier vet or two and a couple of mid tier vets before we address it again in the first two rounds of the draft.....possibly with a later pick as well. We double dipped at DT in the draft last year and I could see us doing it again for an immediate starter and a player to develop.

I fear for Kikaha's future but I want him to succeed and trust that he is healed from his surgery and is ready to compete at training camp. He has a good shot at being productive as a speed rusher on third down when we need a stop. I hope he is ready to get after the QB!


The Saints will bring 90 players to training camp in Metairie but I wonder if Kruger will take a pay cut to come in and compete? Because he's not worth what we are paying him . We signed him late last year after injuries started decimating us and he did alright but he was not competitive enough to suit me. He knows the system and is good depth but I don't know if he'll be back next year or not.
