Too early to tell how priorities will shake out by the end of the season.

I think they'll sign Drew to another one year deal for whatever the top QB contracts are going for.

From what we've seen so far, I think they'll try to resign Okafor and Kelemente.

Vaccaro will be interesting, between the suspension and the benching, I don't know how much the Saints will be willing to offer but I'd guess several other teams will want him.

Just my guesses. We'll have to see how the rest of the season plays out.

I could see a 3 yr 18 mil a year for drew.Fairley, Morstead and Strief should be gone. MI is playing great but Alvin is a legit #1. I would keep both. KV would need to take no more than 4 mil for me to resign. Keep Ginn and let Snead walk.

Drew is not playing for less than 25mil/annum; now his hometown discount, concession may be a reduction in guaranteed years, but if he's playing at an elite level, you're paying for those performances...

Drew will sign for what he think is fair market value. 25M or whatever.

The saints need to present him a FA that Drew believes is worth taking a cut for.

That is his home town definition of a discount.

Lets see how players like say do the rest of the year

I am voting for proven veteran leadership in the secondary.
Morgan Burnett SS/FS/CB Packers (28) 6013 209 4.51 Green Bay $8/9 M

Sunday scouting possibility
Kyle Fuller CB Bears 5116 190 4.40 1st Round 2014 - $9/11 M

There is always
Eric Reid FS/SS San Fransico 6012 213 4.53 Rd 1 2013 $7/8 M

I trust in Drew to scout defenders.

Would Drew go for the best slot WR in the NFL?

Jarvis Landry WR Miami 5114 205 4.61 Rd 2 2014 4 - $10/11 M

Whatever happens it will be Drew making the call

Agree with Landry
Let Snead walk add a couple of million to what his money would be and try for Landry. Him and Thomas would rack up the yards with Drew

how about Larry Fitzgerald? He is old but he can play the slot at a top level still. Short contract that maybe cheaper.

Be happy with him but i dont see him walking on Arizona and if he does i think its to someone like the Pats who have a easier route to success

Money will not be a top priority. I cant see it. He has more money than he could ever spend. This is where he breaks all the records and retires as a Saint. He wants to do what the best dream of, retire on top as a champion. He takes 25 a year he will retire broken because he would have no support.

He is also a major player in the players union so won't want to be seen taking to much of a discount

There is no way in Hell that I let Morestead walk away and play for another team. If he is not the best punter in the league then he's damn close. I don't watch football anymore besides the Saints and their opponents but I do know that he is one of the best weapons that we have. Morestead is a stud and Loomis might have signed him to an expensive contract but he is worth every penny.
