Re: 2018 NFL Free Agency

Would love to have another 16 game warrior on our offensive line...

Re: 2018 NFL Free Agency

Would New England want a LT not named Ramczyk for their first round pick?

I really want us to push for a wide receiver, TE and then draft heavy front 7. Get Michael Thomas and Cam Jordan each a running mate to play opposite them and we are seriously in business.
As good as the Saints were offensively, we struggled mightily on 3rd down & in the red zone. Even in that horrible Seattle offensive system, JG still managed to squeeze 10 TD's on the season. Imagine the production here with a QB/coach & system he's already familiar with. If Jimmy Dickens is available at a fair price, I just can't see how anyone wouldn't want that type of weapon back @ TE. We are in win now mode.

BTW, Jimmy isn't missing games due to injury either .

Re: 2018 NFL Free Agency

Now this would take the rivalry with the ATL to a whole 'nother level...

Re: 2018 NFL Free Agency

Personally, with the way things went down and his comments on social media I don't want Jimmy Graham back in a Saints uniform. He was very good here and could probably still get the job done, but apparently he let his emotions in the locker room and Payton purged the locker room and went back to the blue print of lunch pail team first players.

I realize that he is probably the best free agent TE out there which would then let us use a draft pick on another position of need. But I just can't get behind the thinking.

Incidentally we are already paying a number one tight end with Fleener still on the roster.
