Kikaha is too small to anchor the edge as a defensive end...

In his own career interest, he really should be playing for a 3-4 team...
New Orleans Saints: Hau'oli Kikaha

I remember reading somewhere that he had put on about 20 LBS... but he is still listed at 246.

Wrong, he's a 2 trick pony -
1) key in 3-4 situations
2) gets hurt a lot

Smash, you're correct about the added way which at the beginning of the season was 263 lbs...

I just think that slows him down, plus that added weight on a recently reconstructed knee makes me wince...

If we could trade Kikaha for another Interior Defensive Lineman, 4-3 Linebacker, I'd just as soon exchange assets to gain for the team...

Re: Saints may trade Hau'oli Kikaha

Kikaha is not an every down DE in the NFL. He's not big enough. Kikaha is not a 3-4 LB in the NFL. He's not athletic enough. If you want to see ugly, ask him to cover. He was a good pass rusher in college. He has a big heart. He feasted on lesser talent in the PAC 12. There is no lesser talent in the NFL. And I'm just now getting to the bad knees.

Saints FO should proceed with caution ... at worst, Kikaha is very good depth.

Suspected we were the trade partner for Bowman; Bowman didn't want to go to the Saints...

From the looks at his stats on Sunday, AP may've been a one game pony...

Re: Saints may trade Hau'oli Kikaha

IF the Saints are serious about trading Kikaha in a player-for-player swap, I'd call the Bills about Marcell Dareus...

Not sure Kikaha would fit in the Bills 4-3, but they may want depth behind Jerry Hughes and to just move on...

Hell, Snead may even be moved and that's why he's still inactive and we're seeing Ginn get more touches lately...
