this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; We have heard here directly that Mueller has been blackballed. Benson poisoned the other owners off him. They are a little fraternity too. Besides, the espn gig probably pays better. Here is an article that sez \"http://www.onlinesports.com/sportstrust/sports45.html\" from 1998. http://www.onlinesports.com/sportstrust/sports45.html ...

I\'m not saying he was the messiah but he sure was a vital component in turning things around pronto after Ditka. Stuck on Mediocrity St. since then. He wasn\'t afraid to make an aggressive move fo sho.

from a seahawks site wishing they could get him back...
\"Mueller\'s star seems to have fallen a bit after being named NFL executive of the year in 2000. Mostly, this is thanks to a fairly unremitting bashing he has taken in the football press, especially from ESPN\'s Len Pasquarelli. While I frequently agree with Pasquarelli in editorial terms, this time his reasoning seems off. Pasquarelli keeps implying that Mueller has made a number of bad moves, but is able to cite only one, the signing of WR Albert Connell. Connell was considered by some a character risk, but he was coming off his best season as a pro and was widely regarded as the best WR in last years free agency class... One gets the sense Pasquarelli is being fed a lot of negatives on Mueller from the NFL\'s old boys network of GM\'s and personnel people, many of whom resent Mueller\'s success and his golden boy reputation. This makes some sense, as Mueller is not a typical vagabond personnel guy who has drifted from team to team as a scout, working his way up through the nepotistic network of NFL scouting \"professionals\". Rather, he is a home grown product who has beaten many of them at their own game, and they simply resent him for it.\"

WHODAT IM ALL FOR TRADING HOWARD FOR SOME PICKS IF WE CAN GET THEM. WOULD HAVE TO BE A SECOND IN MY OPINION. BUT IF WHAT YOU SAY IS CORRECT AND WE CAN SIGN HIM TO WHERE HIS CAP HIT IS ONLY 2 MIL THEN YES I WOULD LOVE TO KEEP THE GUY. IF WE CAN MAKE IT AFFORDABLE WHY NOT.
