Personally I am going to have to go with the draft. Rarely does someone get all of their credit card debt paid off and not find a way to run it back up again.
Option #1 for me too. Potential is often times better than acquiring a Free Agent. The top teams do this (draft) year end and year out. Free agency should supplement a roster, not necessarily define it.

You did see where I said "Pursue Demarcus Lawrence IF he does hit the open market"?

No, I'd be shocked if he did and that's why I had that option down the list at No. 4...

But then again, who'd ever thought Lattimore would fall to us?

I just think we need to keep our cap flexibility ready in the event that Lawrence hit the market...

Know, Lord knows I know, we got burnt with signing the big shiny FA when we got the Byrd...

But DeMarcus Lawrence, across from Cam Jordan - that'd be sick!

But I just don't see Safeties Nor Linebackers hitting the market worth the money...

I'd rather send a few people packing, pick up some more draft picks, and build through the draft...

Re: Saints Offseason Checklist

DE - love Oak but hope to upgrade this spot
WR - love to see us go veteran here like Jarvis Landry
SS who can roam the line and cover
OG/OT of the future
LB - still looking for my sideline to sideline athlete

Snead ? ... possibly but I don't see coach Payton moving on from Brandon. He never quits on a play & we all know what type of blocker he is.

For a #4 WR, he was pretty damn good last season.

Yes, he has only 1 issue to fix and we all know what it is (including Brandon)

Re: Saints Offseason Checklist

Been doing some opposition research on the Cowboys, and boy are they vulnerable this off-season...

They've got three key players to re-sign on defense DE Demarcus Lawrence, DE/DT David Irving (RFA), LB Anthony Hitchens...

Plus RG Zach Martin will be in the final year of his contract and the Cowboys will want to extend him...

Cowboys are four-plus deep at DE - DeMarcus Lawrence, David Irving, Tyrone Crawford, Taco Charlton...

And then there's prodigy Randy Gregory, his dope problems, but Charlton's selection may have been there tell...

Figure there's a one-in-ten chance that they let Lawrence hit the open market, but I'd still be ready for a move...

This is where it gets interesting...

David Irving is a 6'7" LDE, playing 3DT, a 24yo RFA with 4 sacks and 4 FF in 2016 with 7 sacks and a FF in 2017...

And MLB Anthony Hitchens who started slow in 2017 with a knee injury, replaced oft-injured Sean Lee at MLB...

Hitchens is looking for a honest effort to compete at the MIKE and the Saints are now contenders for next season...

The Cowboys are going to have to make a difficult decision and let at least one of these players likely go...

We're in a very good position this offseason...

Our three best FAs are Brees, Kelemete, and Vaccaro; then there's Okafor who had a late-season-ending injury...

Only wildcard is some players really like playing for the Big Markets - NYC, Dallas, Atlanta and LA...

OT who can play guard like Peat. Understudy Center to Unger. DE and can always use another LB for competition.
