As you state, you would like him to play LB/SS hybrid and this has been his only area that he excels (close to the line). Do you think the Saints will really want to pay TOP DOLLAR to do just that?

IMO, that money should be spent else where.
If he wants top dollar let him walk. Hes good, not great. When he is playing up near the line it makes me remember his rookie year. Being the #3 safety on the field released some of the pressure Im sure. Would love to see him back in that role.

I remember when people was ready to give up on Crawley after his rookie year. Why give up on P.J.after his 1st full season? I truly believe his skill levels are the same as Malcolm but with more recovery speed.

Breaux, can you actually blame him for being injured? Remember Oschner doctors couldn't even diagnose a broken leg. To reach in the piggy bank for Malcolm will be a huge mistake, if anything go after Eric Reid or Navorro Bowman

Maybe Arthur Maulet steps up this season.

FS (2) 43 - Marcus Williams, 25 - Rafael Bush (Free Agent)

LCB (3) 20 - Ken Crawley, 26 - P.J. Williams, 37 - Arthur Maulet
We run a lot of 3 safety. I see two young starters and one is inconsistent.

PJ is very average in the slot and certainty not a guy I trust on the outside.

Remember what our secondary looked like when Lattimore went down?

Maybe Justin Hardee step up. Paying Malcolm big money will most definitely limit those two opportunity getting on the field. Remember, after a exceptional OTA, Crawley opportunities only came after Breaux injury, Harris ineffective, Moore being cut, and 2 horrific loses.

I hope the Saints continue to develop Hardee.

We need a slot corner. KV is not the answer there. He is limited in what he can do and I don't want to pay him starter money when his value is less than that to me.

His big flaw is that he doesn't tackle well with others...

The more I research cornerbacks in Free Agency, the more I keep coming across Jaguars CB Aaron Colvin as solution to our slot cornerback...

I see no Strong Safeties available in Free Agency this season that'll be worth the money...

It'll fall to Kenny V deciding to stay with a home-town discount or rolling with Vonn Bell and a draft selection...
