Well, for every single case of Brees, there's numerous cases such of the Spillers and Byrds of FA and Kikahas, Tulls, Sunseris, Rufus Johnsons and Toons of the draft.

So, Brees is an outlier not the median.

That's the easy part. It's the day before the colonoscopy that is a *****. Right?

I'm an expert.

I really like this. He's an above average player that we signed for a fair price.

Worst case is he becomes a great back-up.

Well, I'll take solace in that...

And y'all need to get woke! Drew Brees has spoiled us as his talent and effort have become an assumed given, as commonplace...

I'd bet hard-earned money that less than 5% of athletes have put the dedication and effort into rehabbing an injury the way Drew Brees has and continues to manage...

Have no doubt Brees' Home Town Discount came with a Gentlemen's Agreement - that all available cap money be used to improve the team overall talent...

Re: Saints Re-sign Alex Okafor!

Compared to this deal for Adrian Clayborn I’d say we did good on the Okafor contract...

The #Patriots are signing #Falcons free agent DE Adrian Clayborn to a 2-year deal worth $12M, source said.

I’d rather have Okafor personally. Clayborn has been mediocre throughout his career until one game against the Cowboys and their backup LT.

Clayborn had the better season and isn't coming on a ruptured achilles tendon...

this is how stats don't tell the whole picture. Clayborn had a game not a season better than Okafor. The Cowboys had a backup OT for a backup in that game and OC didn't provide him any help (a running back, tight end or guard to chip block) Clayborne said after the game he beat him with one move the entire game that provided him with 6 sacks. You add 6 sacks to any player and his stats should be impressive after the season


Great choice N.O. Staff for signning Okafor

Re: Saints Re-sign Alex Okafor!

He was possibly last years best free agent signing before he went down. I hope he's back at 100% even if it takes a little time to get back. He really fits the system DA runs.
