I'm excited about this guy.
To be honest I don't know to much about the guy. I hope you're right. Maybe I'm living in the 90's but 5 million a year seems steep for a player with less than 15 starts.

Kinda, it depends on how the contract is structured. We paid 5/yr for Curtis Lofton several years ago.

10 million guaranteed over 4 years (2.5 per year) isn't exactly gonna break anyone in todays NFL.

Finally, some off season news that doesn't suck. Other than some of the coaching changes.

I think this guy could be more than solid. He seems like a breakout player in waiting. It would sure be nice if he is.

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

Klein MLB
Robertson WLB
Anthony SLB?

enter TJ Watt in round 2.
T.J. Watt OLB/DE/TE Wisconsin 6042 243 4.65 #42 rJr
While SLB is written all over him. SDE could be a solid option also.


Need a cover LB?
Round 1/2
Zach Cunningham MLB/OLB Vanderbilt 6032 230 4.67 #41 rJr
Haason Reddick, WLB/ILB, Temple 6014 237 4.54 #58 rSr

Round 4/5
Jordan Evans ILB/OLB/SS Oklahoma 6021 232 4.51 #26 Sr

Need a project?
Tyus Bowser, OLB, Houston 6021 240 4.65 #81 Sr
Duke Riley WOLB/SS/ILB LSU 6005 231 4.58 #40

The signing of AJ open a world of options. The front 4 has to keep him clean. Something the saints were not good at last year. The main reason I wanted Johnathan Hankins over Nick Fairley,

It is a solid start

I don't keep up much with LB'er speed. Is 4.66 slow? Shanle was solid but I want spectacular!

4.66 isn't bad at all, especially not with his size.

Watt is overrated. He's where he is because of the last name. Give me Cunningham in rd 1 or beckwith in rd 4.
