2018 NFL Free Agency

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; The upcoming crop of free agent TE’s is horrendous. We’re not finding the answer there. There’s a ton of great options in the draft though... Mark Andrews, Dallas Goedert, Mike Gesicki, Hayden Hurst, Troy Fumagalli, etc....

Re: 2018 NFL Free Agency

Maybe 3 solid tights ends; Gronk, Kelce and Ertz. The drop off from there is a long one. No way Jimmy is coming back here either. It would be like Shockey returning to the Giants after leaving. Too much bad blood. I would not draft one.

I have no idea what happened behind closed doors and if it was bad then he's not the answer. I'm just throwing out that I think that's a position that needs to be addressed through the draft or free agency.

It was not behind closed door. Jimmy blew up in the media about the Saints. Dropping F bombs and calling out the whole organization.

You don't remember when he wanted WR money and we would not give it to him? It was a big deal. He is still livid about it.

We pretty much did give it to him, then traded him the next year.

I would like him back. It would be an instant boost to the offense, he has gotten better at blocking too.

The signing of fleener ranks up there with worst FA signings for the saints. I'll never understand the money they paid that guy, there had to be a lot of GMs going wtf.

Would like to get a mean DT or DE in FA. Rankins is a bust and the lack of Nick this year showed he isn't able to anchor the Dline.

Losers make excuses, winners find a way!
