Re: Saints have big decisions at TE

Fleener is the sloppiest player I've seen at training camp. My guess is he's not a high energy guy and he looks tired and lazy when he's on the field. Eat the dead money and move on.......

Re: Saints have big decisions at TE

Is there any way to show how many of runs of more than a few yards were directly related to a TE block? The running game was vital for us even if we were missing a great catching TE at times.

Re: Saints have big decisions at TE

Sign Graham and use Fleenor and alphabet as backups. I know Fleenor is way over priced as a backup but maybe he will get motivated to play better. Lots of drops last year. We should've at least gone to the NFC Championship so I wouldn't change too much. Vikings will use Teddy next year, Green Bay may be without Rodgers, Wentz will be back in Philly, Rams will return to the ground next year, Panthers stay the same, as do the Falcons and Dak doesn't seem to be the man anymore in Dallas. We will have a solid offense again and if we can get a couple of good pieces on defense our defense will be improved again. Stay the course

Golf and sex are about the only things you can enjoy without being good at them.

I know this is out of left field but ....

What if Carolina decide to move on from Greg Olsen? IIRC they would save 6.75M by letting him go.

Any interest here?

Re: Saints have big decisions at TE

If Graham will come back in Fleener's salary slot, he's the guy if the Saints and Graham can get past the last history...

Drew would be a big part of making that happen...

Re: Saints have big decisions at TE

I'd be fine bringing Hill and Fleener back next year if they are healthy (even better if the latter can restructure), then maybe draft a good TE in the 2nd or 3rd round. Coleman can hit the road.

I don't want to see Jimmy G. back in black and gold. When he lost his bid to be treated as a WR salary wise he seemed to check out on us and lost interest in doing his job.

I don't even think there's a lot to discuss as far as Fleener is concerned. If he is on the roster next year I'll be disappointed. I never liked Fleener to begin with, certainly don't like him now.

Re: Saints have big decisions at TE

I like the Jimmy Graham idea more and more. He would be a great interim measure until a draft pick can be developed. He would give the offense an additional weapon that was mostly missing last year. All of this assumes that his attitude has improved over what it was. I think the past 2 years in Seattle may have humbled him a bit.....hopefully!

Re: Saints have big decisions at TE

TE's normally take a while to develop. Fleener should have come around fully by now so likely outta here. Hill is about there. Think he is the starter. Not great but good enough, especially blocking. Graham not gonna happen. Get a backup in FA or roll the dice in the draft. There just are not that many good ones in FA so I think we do both.
