I hope we re-sign Kelemete but I think he gets a better offer from someone else.

Brees, Okafor, and Line are my top options. I like Edebali and he's cheap too. Daniel will likely be back as well.

I'd hate to lose Kelemente' but I'm with you. I think he may get O line starter type money someplace else. Extremely versatile player.

And yes to Brees & Okafor.

If that happens then it would definitely shift my focus in the 1st round of the draft to someone like C/G Billy Price who could be that utility back-up in his rookie year before eventually taking over for Unger.

Re: 2018 Saints FA - Who do we sign?

Pretty much everyone below Kelemete on that list is replaceable, and not really a threat to leave.

I would like to keep Johnson- he played great. I also think we need to hold onto Leribeus- pretty much zero depth on OL
Signing Edabali / Okafor might change our draft strategy.

Vaccaro will probably get overpaid elsewhere.
