Why would you commit serious money to WRs when you still have holes on the offensive line, defensive front seven?

We focused on running the football and defense and it got us back in the playoffs and off the 7-9 skid...

We still were among the league elite in passing with the wide receivers we have - that wasn't our problem...

Our problem was we were starting our No. 5 and No. 6 LBer with a late season street FA in the playoffs...

Not to mention we had little depth along the offensive line and defensive line to sustain us for a deep playoff run...

And did we learn nothing from the Junior Galette contract that we want the juvenile antics of Sheldon Richardson?

I'd sign Trent Murphy as a rotational guy - if he's affordable; and we have holes at SS...

It probably doesn't make a lot of financial sense but I completely understand the desire for a WR. Besides Thomas, there didn't seem to be a clutch 3rd down guy. And the Saints weren't good on 3rd down. There were quite a few games where it seemed the offense struggled because they couldn't sustain drives. I think we all expected Snead to be that guy but he disappeared.

And I'd say the depth at WR is as big a concern as any other unit on the team. Could you imagine what the passing game would be like if Thomas went down early in the season? Who'd step up? Could Ginn be a true number one? He averaged less than 3 1/2 catches per game, Coleman less than 1 1/2.

I would be thrilled if we picked up a big name Linebacker or D lineman, but if we couldn't get a defensive stud, I'd also be thrilled with a Jarvis Landry, Marques Lee or Allen Robinson.

Michael Thomas can't continue to do it all. I would invest in either WR or TE this season.

Fleener's gone. We'll lose either Coleman or Snead.

Saints desperately need a TE ... probably more so than a J Landry.

Re: 2018 Saints FA - Who do we sign?

I agree that we need a upgrade at LB and WR is a lower priority but a need all the same. Landry would be a good fit IMHO. TE was missing in our offense and a key contributor to our third down woes as was Snead disappearing! Coleman and Ginn are not capable of carrying out offense if Thomas is injured. Trey Burton is a young ascending player that has the misfortune of playing on a team that has a another TE that is a star. He just might be convinced to join a team that has shot at a SB ring and a hall of fame QB where he could be the #1 TE.
Nigel Bradham is a three down LB that excellent at coverage.
Burnett or Joyner would give us an elite S to replace Vaccaro and provide veteran influence on our young DBs
Richardson is a difference maker in an area of need be can play either DE or DT and provide a pass rush that would make this team dangerous !
Murphy is coming off injury and wouldn't cost as much as Ansah .
This team needs another difference maker on Defense!

Re: 2018 Saints FA - Who do we sign?

Saints defense is a cb and a healthy de away from being dominant. Shore that up in FA and draft the bpa. I think Hill can replace fleener which shouldn’t be hard to do. but I agree we need a couple wr’s. Snead and Coleman are all but out the door. Need a slot something bad. Another lance Moore.
