We’re told Saints general manager Mickey Loomis couldn’t be more pleased with how well the Saints’ offseason has progressed this year and believes the team will be a serious playoff contender in 2005.
The Saints’ signing of S Dwight Smith made S Tebucky Jones expendable, and when the team couldn’t work out a deal to trade him, they released him to ensure that he didn’t become a problem in the locker room.

New Orleans

The Saints believe their signing of S Dwight Smith away from the Buccaneers on the free-agent market could be the boost the defense needs to put the team back into contention. Smith had hoped to land on a team that had a starting CB job available, but we’re told New Orleans’ offer of a five-year, $15 million contract was enough to convince Smith that staying at safety with the Saints would be best for him. Smith’s attitude also worked as a positive. He is known as being a swaggering, big-play hitter on the field who plays with passion, something that drew the Saints to Smith. We’re told the team’s positive experience last season with equally fiery CB Mike McKenzie convinced defensive coordinator Rick Venturi that the team needed more players like McKenzie, and Smith fit the profile perfectly.

Dallas

In another believed disagreement between coach and owner, the Cowboys’ two top decision-makers, head coach Bill Parcells and owner/GM Jerry Jones, the Cowboys won’t be sending MLB Dat Nguyen to the Saints in a proposed deal for pass rusher Darren Howard, a team source says. The two teams spoke last week, and the Saints reportedly asked the Cowboys for Nguyen in a swap of defensive players. Jones supposedly was more willing to relinquish Nguyen, but Parcells balked at giving up one of his most productive defenders, though Nguyen is coming off an unspectacular season. The irony is that Parcells always has favored bigger linebackers through the years, but he showed his affection for the smallish Nguyen two years ago by calling him a “football-playing dude.� If the Cowboys still acquire Howard — they are still in talks over potential compensation — the likelihood of switching to a 3-4 defense, especially full time, as had been rumored, becomes much lower considering it would give the team its best four-man D-line since the early ’90s.
