Bengals release Kevin Hardy...

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; While the Bengals are looking to go younger, we need to add some experience. He's only 31 and has proved to be a very good player. Should we consider Hardy before Brown? I would....

I think he should get a look. Why not bring all of these guys into camp? If they suck, cut them. If they outplay the poop we currently put on the field, then we just got better on the cheap.

I would look at Hardy and Foreman before Brown.

I would look at Laurel and Hardy before Brown. Seriously -- he does not have the injury probles Chad has and probably would take a lesser salary to prove that the bengals made a mistake

Absolutely. If we bring in all the proven vets on the downslide there\'s bound to be one or two with enough gas in the tank to help us out. As long as its a guy who can play the Sam. You can\'t sling a dead cat around here without hitting 9 WLB\'s.

looking at our depth chart...
SLB-Allen, Hodge
MLB-Watson, Ruff, Fincher
WLB-Bockwoldt, Rodgers, Fisher, Watson, Ruff and 14 other stiffs I\'ve never heard of.

This depth chart screams for another SLB.

Oh, and off-topic a bit, I was re-watching a 2004 game last week and noticed a formation that had Ruff and Watson both in the game as well as a WLB (I think it was Watson but not sure). Anyone else notice that? Is Ruff playing some SLB?

Hardy\'s not that old, but there\'s alot of miles on him. He\'s been in the league a long time, yet he\'s somehow remained relatively healthy and productive. He\'s obviously not a long term solution, but I can\'t see the harm in bringing him in if the price is right.

Agreed with others above, I\'d certainly be more interested in Hardy than Brown. At this stage in his career, Brown would be nothing more than a situational player ... and like Danno\'s analogy, you can\'t sling a dead cat around here without hitting one of those, too.

I think Ruff\'s coverage skills and speed may be insufficient to play SAM. Though, I think that people are more down on Ruff than he should be because he was brought in here to save a floundering D and didn\'t. He\'s not a bad LB, but he is a bit on the slow side. As a situational player, I don\'t think he is that bad at all - in fact, I think he is considerably better than Rodgers.
