Re: The way to early 2018 FA watch list

I want to be clear. There is one player and one player only I have on my do everything you can to sign list. Any other players would be a cherry on the top and will require work to sign, this guy will not.

My Top "Big Ugly" Bang for the Buck in 2018
The misuse of his skill set makes him prime for a FA steal.

DaQuan Jones DT/DE Titians 6036 322 5.35 #90 Age 25 R4 2014 - $3/4 M


A massive proven run stuffing 34 DE. Does the dirty work on one of the best DL in the NFL. Ranked 16th among NFL interior linemen in run defense according to PFF in 2016.

He is big & athletic and can handle 4-3 one-technique and without question.

Watch this guy play as a 34 DE and this what you will see

Inside rush between the OTs is were he shines from his 34DE position. He is ALWAYS double teamed and is ALWAYS there to make a play against the run. He is almost unmovable and unstoppable. Double teaming him does not eliminate him from making a play. One on one blocking? He just pushes that blocker in the backfield blowing up plays and throwing that blocker to the side to make the play.

Outside pass rush is were you see the titian have him out of place. He is not the all round impact 34DE they need. Putting him outside is good for anchoring edge not sacking the QB. He can not turn the corner on an OT to save his own life.

Keep him inside and watch him shine.

The things the Saints are missing up front is what he bring to the table

He is a hand full for C and OG to handle. He eats up blockers and space all game long.

Benefits

Rankings and Jordan would surely benefit from Jones. taking up Dbls teams and stopping the run would free them up more to attack.

He could be answer to the lack of 3 man pass rush up the middle.

Most important benefit.

He would help to keep the LBers clean to make plays
He would also open up more lanes for the blitz

Hands down the biggest bang for the buck FA in 2018. His impact would be felt across the board for the front 7 as a unit. Blitzers will be loving him. I love the dirty work players.

Get ready I am starting to early this year

We need a true MIKE on D. Klein is a nice FA acquisition however we need a true sideline to sideline assassin.

Watching this 2017 Saints D, we could be one or two players away from becoming a dominant defensive ball club.

Morestead is a stud and Loomis might have signed him to an expensive contract but he is worth every penny.
No punter is worth 4.5 million a year. Not ever the great Reggie roby.

A MLB in the draft?

I have not really been impressed with anyone one MLB in the draft to beat over .

Malik Jefferson OLB/ILB Texas* 6015 238 4.57 #46 Jr
Rashaan Evans OLB/ILB Alabama 6021 232 4.73 #32 Sr
Tremaine Edmunds OLB/ILB/SS Virginia Tech 6042 236 4.52 #49 Jr

Later?

any ideas?

FA?

Easiest way is to let Klien take over at MLB?

Something must be up with him, rarely does the price go down in mid season for such a highly regarded player.

Probably worth it for the Pats. They kept him,ensured Brady got through camp with little to do and uninjured then got pick 33-40 when he would walk a few months later.

In a heart beat but not in rd 4/5. Maybe 6/7 or a ufa. Got to be one that can hold the fort for under 2 million.
