Re: 2018 Saints FA - Who do we sign?

I think the only free agents I would like to bring in are SS Eric Reid and DT DaQuan Jones.

Eric Reid is great but Jaquiski Tartt really emerged for the 49ers so Reid is likely to move on.

DaQuan Jones is a mammoth at 6’4”, 320 lbs with dominant run-stuffing ability and good pass rush skills.

Restricted free agent though... We’d have to offer pretty good money that Tampa wouldn’t be willing to match. Probably not too hard because the investment they’ve made in OJ Howard.

but, they def aren't going to tender him 1st round, and 2nd would cost them $2.02 million.
Brate wasn't drafted, so if they offer the lowest tender and we top it, we wouldn't lose a pick

andohbytheway, he was on our PS in '15 for a week

Re: 2018 Saints FA - Who do we sign?

If we sign a Tight End, I suspect it'll be to bring Jimmy Graham back into the fold...

Tiger-Saints are probably hoping for this one; but I have doubts as Thomas will need to be extended in just a couple of seasons...

I won't rule it out but the price would have to be right on Jimmy Dickens. The Saints desperately need a 3rd down threat and red zone weapon. Personally, I'd like to target one in the upcoming draft.
