I think its rediculous we abandoned the thought of getting a big FA when the reason Byrd flopped was because we didn't have the players on defense to support him. He was also signed because of Payton's jealousy of Seattle and not him really being a need whatsoever. Browner we knew drew penalties, everyone said well at least he's aggressive. Don't believe me? Pull up the old thread where he was signed. Zeitler would have been money well spent. Payton just doesn't understand these intangibles.
Signing Klein and Okafor had nothing whatsoever about being able to sign Zeitler. The Saints currently have over $5.6 million in free cap after factoring in all rookie contracts. The Saints will also regain $7.9 million in additional cap after June 1st from the Jarius Byrd release. And not to mention roster bonuses that can be converted to signing bonuses can bring an additional $6 plus million in 2017 cap. Now factor in the $3.8 million Warford is costing in 2017 and we would have over $23 million to pay Zeitler in 2017. The deal Zeitler got from the Browns has him with a 2017 cap hit of $8.4 million.

It is total bullcrap saying signing Klein and/or Okafor had ANY affect on being able to sign Zeitler.

By the way, Klein and Okafor combined are only counting $4.8 million toward the 2017 cap.

Get your facts straight.
