Barnidge might be interesting.

Exactly.

Look we brought in Paul Kruger at the last minute and it really didn't work out with him having to learn the defense, adjust to his teammates, nadn...

Need guys in the full term of the offseason to really have this team bond...

Senio could play the Center until Unger gets back; Kelemete is the ultimate swing lineman for us right now...

Unger is the key injury on the offensive line, the one that worries me most, not Armstead...


LT (2) 71 - Ryan Ramcyzk (R1, P32), 79 - Bryce Harris

LG (2) 75 - Andrus Peat, 77 - John Fullington

C (2) 60 - Max Unger, 65 - Senio Kelemete

RG (2) 67 - Larry Warford, 78 - Landon Turner

RT (2) 64 - Zach Strief

INJURED

72 - Terron Armstead

I think Boldin would be a great pick up, he might even wind up starting. The other on this list for me would be Dorcey, I believe he could be a nice backup/rotational guy. When factoring the age for both guys, they could probably be had for league minimum.

We addressed the loss of Fairley with McDaniel. If they were truly concerened about C they would have likely brought Mangold in already. We have Barnes at tackle as well to go with Ramcyzk so Armstead is addressed. If Rankins and Jordan get on track the D line pressure will be there.

Re: TEN FREE AGENTS THE SAINTS OUGHT TO KICK THE TIRES ON

Don't see the need for Boldin when we've got Snead in that role...

Ginn is your Y who runs the flys, seams to stretch the field...

Thomas is already one of the top X receivers in the league...

Could we use depth for the 4 or 5? Sure. And we've got plenty of talent on roster to develop there...

Would like to see us bring in a Barnidge as Fleener's first season was not a confident one...

Josh Hill has had trouble getting healthy, nevermind Hou-man who's not been healthy in five plus seasons...

Phillips shows promise, but I'd rather us spend the money and secure a proven receiver at the TE position...

Barnidge reminds of a better David Thomas-type who made some big catches for us while with the Saints...

I don't want any of these guys! I guess we're in better shape than even I realized.

I'd rather keep Fleener one last season vs Barnidge.

I think JP was suggesting bringing in Barnidge in addition to Fleener. We have carried as many as three TE's in the past. Cutting or trading Fleener isn't an option.

Exactly. Cap room is there and why not ensure we have that position locked down?

We only have one big reliable receiver in Thomas, why not have some big targets for the red-zone who could be a dual threat - block and catch?

Could you imagine lining up in a 12 package with Fleener and Barnidge capping the line with Snead and Thomas out and Kamara in the backfield? Talk about total mismatches everywhere.

Gives me goosebumps.
