A.J. Klein (3 year, $15 mill, $10M guaranteed)

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; He's in the 2nd tier of free-agents (3-star F/A) that most of us agreed we should target instead of the mega-splash guys. Thats kinda what we just did....

I suppose this move takes Foster off the draft wish list.

I wouldn't rule Foster out at all. Klein can also play outside.

Supposedly so can Foster, although a bunch of fake drafts have him heading to Cincy. It will allow us to look at the edge or the D backfield.

Yep and a lot of people actually project Foster to be a better fit as a weakside LB.

I hope not. Reuben is the most complete collegiate LB prospect in the nation. He is still high on my draft "wish list" at pick #11.

I would take Cunningham at OLB everyday over Foster.

At worst I think he'll be NFL average with a decent ceiling. Thats better than what we've had lately.

Craig can now go back to WLB and thrive.
And Reuben Foster at the strong side
