Willie Snead

His production should go up some with Cooks gone but I don't think it's a given. He lacks the speed and agility of say a Jamison Crowder and the deep routes likely go to Ginn. Then with AP, probably shortens the field more and less targets around the GL.

I'm guessing he stays around 15% of the offense with slightly more success.

If might have to go up, alot depends on how the TE's play. I'm not sold on the toughness of Fleener.

I'm not sold on Fleener at all.

Stories keep being released saying Fleener will have a better season because he knows the offense better. Knowing the offense wasn't even his issue last season, he just dropped a ton of perfect passes from Brees.

Re: Willie Snead

I hope that we are smart and sign him to an extension now. If we wait he may price himself out of our range. He is the perfect fit for this team playing the Lance Moore role.

Re: Willie Snead

He had 72 catches last year for 895 yards and 4 tds. I could see him catching 85 for 1050 yards and 5 Tds. Thomas should go over 100 catches fairly easy this year. Had 92 last year. I think the surprises could be duralumin's and fuller. Both could see the field a lot this year. Really looking forward to seeing drew spreading the ball around to the best wr crew we have had in 5 years
