DT Corey Simon available now?

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Since Philly picked DT Patterson with their 1st pick, I wonder if a Simon/Howard trade is more attractive to both teams now? Wouldn't bother me one bit either way. Just a thought....

Let\'s do it. They lost Burgess on the other side of Kearse and have a glut of DTs now. It makes sense. We need a pro bowl DT, they could use a stud DE. They drafted another stud DT. Sounds win win to me. Nice analysis of the situation.

I think one of our FO guru\'s poo-pooed the idea before, saying they really didn\'t want to send Howard to a NFC team.

But of couse do they realize Dallas is in the NFC also? :casstet:

And seattle, and Washington, teams all discussed as possible trade partners. Maybe they don\'t realize. As long as he is out of our division, why should we care if he is in the conference? This is a deal I would 1000% agree with if they did it. Might be the best deal since we traded Ricky for two firsts.

Is Simon franchised? I thought that was basically the one legitimate knock on Howard - he\'s franchised.

Yup, they are both franchised. Shouldn\'t cause a snag though, especially for us since Simon\'s cap number is lower than Howard\'s even with the franchise tag.

Simon\'s at what? $6 million??? And we can SUPPOSEDLY sign Howard to a long-term deal that costs us $2 million this season.... I just don\'t get it. If Howard is such a problem for our cap then why wouldn\'t Simon be the same?

You\'re for franchised players, just so long as their names aren\'t Howard???

A pro bowl DT that has a lower cap number is a NEED for us, a non-pro bowl but good DE is not. Christ.

Furthermore, we could renegotiate Simon\'s contract just as we \"did\" (I\'m not convinced that we have - when he signs that \"new\" contract, I\'ll buy it) with Howard\'s.

I like that trade, IF philly tosses in a late round pick next year (because I\'m greedy). Actually, that doesn\'t sound too bad to me.

The downside as I see it: if Sully shows up this year, we could have gotten a LB for Howard. However, if Sully shows up and we have Simon, why would we need a LB? Damn.
