Re: Saints Linebacker A.J. Klein On Schedule To Be Fully Healthy For Training Camp

Seen some suggestions lately that Klein could be on the trading block. Took a look at his contract to see if it was financially feasible and it is:

POST-6/1 TRADE
2018 Dead Cap: $1,000,000
2019 Dead Cap: $2,000,000
2018 Cap Savings: $4,200,000

What are you going to gain with cap savings that out-weighs depth at a vital position?

Seriously, someone tell me a logical reason why Klein should be traded and how it would positively benefit the Saints. Philosophical question here.

Slow football day so I thought I'd throw this nugget out there. https://www.canalstreetchronicles.co...ston-suspended

Pure speculation by a beat reporter but it's a good talking point. New HC Sean McD & Klein do have a connection from Carolina and the Bills are LB "needy". I'd rather keep AJ but he needs to improve his play.

I might wait to see how the lb.'s shake out in training camp. A healthy Klein could go a long way, kind of like a healthy Ellerbe did. But he's going to have to prove it. So far we know he's not made for the middle. Going to be interesting in camp at OLB?

Anzalone(weak), Davis(middle), Klein(strong) would be a serious upgrade in the middle of the defense...

Reminds me of Shanlee, Vilma, Fujita but more athletic.

Re: Saints Linebacker A.J. Klein On Schedule To Be Fully Healthy For Training Camp

What ever we do, we'd better have six (6), nay seven (7) NFL quality linebackers to deal with the inevitable attrition that is the NFL - see 2017 season...

I'd love to have Luke Kuechly, Lavonte David, and Telvin Smith as our 43 Lbers, but when one goes down, who do they have?

Give me six guys that can play all three positions that you can move around, keeping them fresh, and confusing lesser offenses...

Don't forget we still have Stupar, Te'o, and Robertson as depth
